Our modern understanding of reality is based on some fundamental concepts: that the world around us is tangible; that the theory of relativity holds; that cause and effect works as we'd expect, and that humans have free will. But take quantum theory at face value, and it turns out the four can't co-exist together.

That, that seems like it could be a problem. This video, put together by New Scientist as part of YouTube's Geek Week, attempts to explain — which I certainly can't. So you better watch it. [YouTube]
