Quantum theory and the implicate order book
Throughout this book we have thus far been concerned mainly with showing that a consistent ontological interpretation of the quantum theory as it now stands is possible. In the previous chapter, however, we raised the question of going beyond the current quantum theory and in the last section we sketched certain more definite proposals for doing this. These proposals however still involve introducing the concept of a particle, in addition to that of the wave function. As we pointed out there, this implies that we go outside the notion of expressing all basic concepts in terms of Hilbert space. In the present chapter we shall begin by exploring a new way of understanding the quantum theory and going beyond it which does not go out of Hilbert space. Nevertheless it does not set aside the work that we have done thus far, but rather it also includes the description of the particle trajectory within the framework of Hilbert space.
