I never claimed to have discovered the Pauli exclusion principle, some
other guy beat me to the punch back in 1925, but I forget his name.

The complex valued wave function, also called the quantum wave function,
is the square root of a probability.

If only I could. It would be nice indeed if you could get rid of the
imaginary part of the quantum wave function, because then you’d also get
rid of quantum weirdness, but as experiment has shown that’s not the way
the world works.
