    Well said! My way of expressing it is that the dominance of materialism in
    science is a matter of faith and needs to be changed to a faith in values
    as the underpinning for explaining observational phenomena. Quantum
    particles appear and disappear seemingly at random because they value that
    sort of behavior for reasons of their own.
