The internal logic in quantum mechanics as a fundamental framework for all ingredients in the atomic and sub-atomic world, has lead many researchers to believe in magic and mystery; they want us to abandon simple logical reasoning as this seems to lead to contradictions. It is stressed here that we should go in the opposite direction. Reality is extremely simple, except for one thing: there are lots of particles in our universe; all these simple little objects together may lead to results that look complicated.
