How to Predict the Future: In Six Easy Steps!

Astrology? Tarot cards? Psychics? Biblical prophesy?

No!

Quantum Mechanics!

How to predict the future:

1. Make drawing
2. Analyze energies
3. Write classical Hamiltonian function
4. Substitute classical variables with corresponding quantum operators
5. Write up Schrodinger Equation
6. Solve it!

Ummm… not so easy after all.
