This brief and simplified discernment is to complement the following exploration https://www.quantamagazine.org/physicists-debate-hawkings-idea-that-the-universe-had-no-beginning-20190606:
The statement ... “If we are talking about a quantum mechanical theory, what else is there to find other than the wave function?” ... or quantum mechanical rather than quantum field is appropriate since in the beginning, there was neither spectra nor field (https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/on-the-wave-function-of-the-universe). Spectra-field were created through or from simple non-equilibrium motion to vibration to wave mechanical process to complex wave mechanical process to emergence of quantum mechanical process (and mechanism). In other words, spectra-field manifestation or existence are emergence from these processes (i.e. many phases transitions). And therefore, now nature of reality and truth have to be realized and constructed from spectra-field sciences or from present states of wholeness existence. And thus, understanding quantum mechanical (quantum mechanical is not obsoleted but rather need to be expanded and better developed (as examples http://backreaction.blogspot.com/2019/08/the-problem-with-quantum-measurements.html and https://www.quantamagazine.org/quantum-leaps-long-assumed-to-be-instantaneous-take-time-20190605) as interdependent and interconnected or seamlessly with quantum spectra-field) would provide knowledge and insights into quantum spectra-field sciences. And vice versa since after all, they are interdependent and interconnected or knowledge and insights of one can provide insights to others. And therefore, they need be integrated or expanded beyond present theories.
Furthermore, as briefly and recently discerned here https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/on-nature-of-existence, relativity is actually a function of intertwinement and entanglement process (and mechanism) with and in the fabrics of the cosmos. Therefore, proper comprehension of quantum mechanical science and quantum spectra-field science would also expand knowledge and insights into relativity science. And vice versa. Another way of stating is that quantum and relativity sciences are functions of universal wave function process or specifically universal intertwinement and entanglement process (and mechanism).
The exploration suggested here would be greatly strengthen and complement with advanced AI computation and simulation along with novel applied sciences that are based on the process (and mechanisms) that created and sustained the essence, nature, and ground being, nature, and All That Exist and Ever exist (i.e. created and sustained parts and sum of parts as one) And as such, inspiring, aspiring, meaningful, mindful care, open, coherent, and resolute global collaborations and efforts are encouraged and urged to accelerate the sciences. And meaningful and mindful care scientific and technology development and applications.
Updated 07/25/2019: a few related recent discoveries leading further toward deeper nature phenomena and fundamentals.
Updated 08/14/2019: an illustration backreaction.blogspot.com/2019/08/the-problem-with-quantum-measurements.html of why beside known incompatibility between quantum physics and relativity, past discernments suggested that quantum measurements and predictions are more about probabilities and statistics than nature of reality and truth or essential and meaningful epistemology and ontology. And which need to be expanded and advanced for scientific quest beyond the known physical world.
