- sampling theory & the uncertainty principle **Part II: Spooky Action at a Distance**

- conceptual review (quantization & matrix algebra)

- the superposition principle

- measurement & wavefunction collapse

- Hadamard's basis

- entanglement & shared randomness

- no superluminal signaling!

- John Bell challenges Einstein's reality

- hidden variable theories

- gremlins & free will **Part III: Interpretation & Beyond**

- conceptual review (quantization & entanglement)

- how to test Nature's spookiness (in a laboratory)

- incomprehensible physics jargon

- the measurement problem

- the eerie magic of wavefunction collapse

- the Orthodox interpretation (Don't ask, don't tell.)

- the Many Worlds interpretation (No collapse, multiply me.)

- the Statistical interpretation (Ain't no wavefunction anyhow.)
