„Some people say
You can make it on your own
Oh you can make it if you try
I know better now

Oh baby that is why.I'm real real gone

Don't you know I need your help
You're a friend of mine
And I'm real real gone.“

Contexto: We always have had … a great deal of difficulty in understanding the world view that quantum mechanics represents. At least I do, because I'm an old enough man that I haven't got to the point that this stuff is obvious to me. Okay, I still get nervous with it. And therefore, some of the younger students … you know how it always is, every new idea, it takes a generation or two until it becomes obvious that there's no real problem. It has not yet become obvious to me that there's no real problem. I cannot define the real problem, therefore I suspect there's no real problem, but I'm not sure there's no real problem.
