Quantum realism (QR) is the theory that quantum waves are real and they create the physical world.
In physical realism, the physical world is real and the quantum world is imaginary but in quantum realism, the quantum world is real and generates the physical world as a virtual reality. This theory is compatible with logic and science, including the equations of physics. In the Figure, physics as a way of viewing reality is no different from computer science, psychology, biology, sociology and the other sciences.
