Season 4 Episode 34 | 12m 36s | Video has closed captioning.

Quantum field theory is notoriously complicated, built from mind-bendingly abstract mathematics. But are the underlying rules of reality really so far from human intuition?

We know this because the predictions of quantum field theory stand up to experimental test time and time again.
