I've been reading it. I took some quantum mechanics as extra curricular classes 
in college in the 70's. As an electrical engineering student, Laplace and 
Fourier transforms were bread and butter for me. If you take the transform of 
an impulse you get an infinite spectrum. If you band limit the spectrum you 
spread out the impulse. I always thought there was some relationship to 
uncertainty. I could go on, but ... particles are just energy twisting up space.

An interesting theory is presented in the book "The Idea of the World - a 
multi-disciplinary argument for the mental nature of reality" by Bernardo 
Kastrup. And his article in Scientific American:
https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/physics-is-pointing-inexorably-to-mind/

I have yet to dig through his arguments. My mind is not what it used to be.
I find taking photos is more fun - collapsing all those photons into all those 
RGB buckets.
