Fast Talk: Principles of Quantum Mechanics

Principles of Quantum Mechanics: This one is a Fast Talk jackpot. This mind-numbing showcase of layered technobabble, which simultaneously attempts to address a number of plot complications relating to the ever-indefinable speed force and the complexities of time travel, speaks for itself. The evil clone Inertia has utilized 30th century technology to build a contraption designed to rob Bart Allen of his connection to the speed force. Dedicated to foiling that sinister scheme, Iris Allen attempts to aid Valerie Perez--and, by extension, the head-scratching reader--by offering a simple simile comparing the current state of the timestream to a roadway in a state of disrepair. Fortunately, the S.T.A.R. Labs intern seems to be up on her studies in theoretical quantum mechanics. I'll leave her incomprehensible mathematical formula--something along the lines of "(5x)-YV(=V)-(123)*(>)"--to you to decipher!
