The Church of the Smaller Hilbert Space

This is supposed to be a balanced blog, but my nonexistent readership may wish to know exactly what I do believe about quantum mechanics. The document below explains everything.

WARNING: The document below contains geek humor that also parodies the style of a certain well-known religious text. If you don't find jokes about density operators funny and/or you are a devout religious person then you may find its contents offensive. The document below does not necessarily represent the opinions of its author, or indeed any person, animal, alien or sentient artificial intelligence, living, dead or yet to be born.
