Rejected, citing that 'the hidden variables are not of scientific interest'

Bryan O'Sullivan has written a new article 1) on his vision on todays quantum mechanics, and added a popularized movie to summarize his view.

The movie is fun to see, and in combination with the text it is hard to understand that the majority of physicist are still in favor of the Copenhagen or similar interpretation of QM.
Especially the film exposes the strange way of arguing of the founder of this QM interpretation, Niels Bohr, in comparison with the usual scientific method.

Unfortunately Bryan's scientific version of his argument (“The Hopf-Fibration and Hidden Variable in Quantum and Classical Mechanics” 2) has been repeatedly rejected for review, using the argument from this blog title.

Double slit is no longer proof of non-classical quantum behaviour II

A year ago I wrote a post about the same topic 1).  Very recently a new publication was posted on Arxiv, summarizing the latest work on classically simulating quantum effects appearing in single and double split experiments 2).
Some citations from the document:

[The model] reflects the old idea of de Broglie’s particlewave duality.
This model contains, on the one hand, a possible explanation of the work-energy exchange between the two separated motions, thereby providing an energy quantisation as originally postulated by Max Planck. On the other hand, the system perfectly obeys the Bohmian-type law of motion in full accordance with quantum mechanics.
And specific about the double slit:
Then,on the basis of classical physics,the exact intensity distribution on a screen behind a double-slit has been derived, as well as the details of the more complicated particle current, or of the Bohmian particle trajectories, respectively.
