I can say that because I’m very familiar with QM and quantum field theory, complete with their rather complicated mathematics. Do any QM woowoomeisters know even the tiniest bit about the math of QM?

I must say that I find some QM math very elegant, like the ladder-operator versions of the harmonic oscillator and angular momentum. I’m sometimes disappointed that such things aren’t more widely appreciated.

She also believes that our house is haunted too; and was quite surprised (and mildly disappointed) when I informed her that we’d experienced nothing unusual in the 3+ years we’ve lived in it… let alone in any of the other places we’ve lived or visited.

Fortunately, we seem to have “agreed to disagree” on this particular issue: she hasn’t raised the subject since, which is good because I like her and want to get along with her… but not at the cost of passively accepting nonsense.
