Episode 3 establishes the principles of quantum mechanics.
In this first part, we discuss the representation of knowledge.

Topics we encounter include: the uncertainty principle,
the choice of the observer, the wave function,
compatible and complementary observables,
Born's rule, the Hilbert space and its inner product,
the physical interpretation of the wave function,
and the so-called "collapse" of the wave function.

The notes contain more detailed explanations of some of the
points raised in the video and some technical details:
