The way to understand the philosophy of Quantum physics.
The formation of theory involves: comparison, analysis, synthesis,
abstraction, idealization and generalization. One of the most important
characteristics involved in concept formation of theory is abstraction.
We are proud to have capability to think abstractedly.
But when we involve an abstract principle in physics the process does
not end; there can be further abstraction of abstraction. The hierarchy
of abstraction can be a never-ending process. Therefore I wrote:
The more I study the more I know.
The more I know the more ideas I have.
The more ideas I have the more they become abstract.
The more they become abstract the less I know the truth.
So, in order to understand the nature of quantum physics we have
to reanalyze the old basic conceptions in Physics like: inertia,
entropy, ideal gas, “method of renormalization”, point-particle,
" The Law of conservation and transformation of energy/mass", . . .etc.

a) Inertia.
For the movement we must pay energy-money.
There isn't inertia without force / energy.
Your car wouldn't move even one inch without force /energy.
There isn’t such thing as “a free lunch” for Inertia.
Someone wrote:
“An old professor of mine used to say
that anyone who can answer that question
what inertia is, would win a Nobel Prize. “

b) Entropy.
In an isolated system entropy (disorder) always increases.
Heat always flows from the higher temperature to the
lower one and never flows back. In our everyday life we don't see
the heat itself rises from cold to hot. So, if we have isolated
cold system then “entropy” in this isolated cold system somehow
must increase, the cold somehow must transform into heat.
No body explains the mechanism of “entropy”, the process of
transformation of cold into heat in one isolated system (for example
in the cold zero vacuum T=0K)

c) Ideal gas
Today physicists think that “ Ideal gas” is an abstract concept.
But “ Ideal gas” has temperature T=0K and therefore is possible
to use all laws and formulas of“ Ideal gas” to the zero vacuum.

d) “method of renormalization” – is a math method to escape “infinity”
Infinity is the cause of the crisis in Physics.
Today “infinity” is “taboo” in Physics.
The taboo says that if in theory appears “infinity” then theory is wrong.
Physicists reject the idea of the “infinity” because the mind cannot
“pass over” such a thing. “Infinity” (no beginning, no end) says nothing
concrete. But if we give to infinity concrete physical parameter ( T=0K)
and use formulas of “ideal gas” (+ SRT, +QED) then situation can be different.

e) A point-particle.
Earth is point, Sun is point, . . . . “singular point “ of Big-Bang . . . .Can we understand quantum physics if “point-particle” has its source
in “singular point“ of Big-Bang?
Geometrical formless quantum particle cannot be side as existent.
Without knowing geometrical form of quantum particle we are all
in a “Plato’s cave” observing “shadow” of real particle.

f) " The Law of conservation and transformation of energy/mass"
Today nobody thinks what “The Law of conservation and (+) transformation
of energy/mass" means according to one single photon/electron.
This law is not a simple accounting solution of “debit - credit”.
The sense of this law is deeper and it says more than it is usually accepted.
If Feynman wrote: " The theory of quantum electrodynamics describes
Nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense ", if Steven
Weinberg wrote: “ The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more
it also seems pointless.” it is because we don’t reanalyze these conceptions.
