Ok, so what I'm getting out of this, as a layman, is that if the Pilot Wave theory is correct (and this experiment isn't proof, just some interesting evidence on the macro scale), it means that quantum weirdness is NOT random, it is just that we cannot measure the hidden variables because any attempt to do so messes up the experiment. This could mean that that there are predicable variables controlling QM, but we have no current method of observing them without disturbing them at the same time.
Am I even close here?
BTW Popeyes Pappy, thanks for the link! That video helped explain it in layman terms for me.
