For more than eighty years the standard interpretation (SI) has dominated quantum physics. Perspectives that have tried to challenge this domination have been remarkably unsuccessful. As a result, quantum theory (QT) has remained remarkably stagnant. The article offers a critical examination of SI and provides an explanation for its continued domination. It also uses Bohmian mechanics—a theoretical perspective advanced by American physicist David Bohm—as a case study for why alternative interpretations have failed to displace SI. The article sees the main reason for the failure to achieve much progress beyond SI in the unresolved philosophical problem of subject-object relation that continues to plague our study of physics. The article sketches a path to a possible solution and outlines a new science practice that this solution will require.

Comment: I solved quantum Relativity, by removing entropy and placing progressional order by pi and removing square and placing Pi. Using density to quantify photonic weight you combine particle physics and relativity using E=DC2 till your brain gets the point that though light has very little mass it does and you use density to explain this weight by volume. Here is the particle model and explination of how to build string theory. Https://
