No one questions the computational accuracy of quantum
mechanics. What's at issue is whether it is the only model that
can do that.

There is evidence from fringe science that electromagnetism can
influence gravity, yet mainstream theories seem unable to offer
a clue why this happens. Although quantum mechanics does well
what it does, it does not tell us how to develop the new
technologies we need today such as anti-gravity and energy from
the vacuum.

Quantum theory is a great computational theory but it's
explanatory power  is weak. That's why we have things like the
Copenhagen and many worlds interpretations of what it all means.
People have built such philosophical frameworks around the
theory to make it meaningful. No one framework is required by
the theory, and this in itself is an indication that the theory
is limited.
