Consider the following scenario. An initial measurement indicates that two indistinguishable particles...

**The 2-Slit Experiment Revisited (1: Calculation)**

According to Feynman, the 2-slit experiment with electrons "has in it the heart of quantum mechanics"...

Two things can happen: either all players are asked for the value of X, or one player is asked for the value of X while the two other players are asked for the value of Y. The possible values of X and Y are +1 and −1.

Some merely claim that we need quantum mechanics so that the electron does not fall into the atom’s nucleus. Any classical electric charge would spiral into the atom's nucleus. The material that they make up would collapse.... Well, how convincing is this argument? Does it convince you? It would not convince me without a severe dose of already knowing at least a bunch of electromagnetism. Why could there not be some other, more intuitive explanation of why atoms do not collapse?
