You are indeed among the people here.

Scientific inquiry into the wave nature of light began in the 17th and 18th centuries, when scientists such as Robert Hooke, Christiaan Huygens and Leonhard Euler proposed a wave theory of light based on experimental observations https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics#History


I like how you think that citing an entry level description of Quantum Mechanics is meant to indicate that you know what Quantum Mechanics is.

This is something we were discussing the other day: Wikipedia Warriors. Yes, we all know there's entries for everything on Wikipedia, but the existence of it on Wikipedia, and the knowledge of how to type in the words and find the relevant page doesn't actually confer any sense of the person actually knowing the topic. Generally, it's actually quite the opposite. You go to Wikipedia to find out basic information about a topic you know little about. So little, in fact, that an entry level description is sufficient, else you'd go to the actual source, like published peer-reviewed papers on QM.

Who is?

Where are they doing this?

How can light particles 'form' matter?

Your link suggests nothing of the sort.

He probably also believes that Quantum Mechanics is debunking physical matter in favour of a computer simulation.

But while Quantum mechanics may hold this theory, it seeks mostly to try and understand how physical matter can be formed


As far as I am aware, QM is specifically concerned with describing observations of how things behave.

A quick search through your link of the Wikipedia page turns up no suggestion that QM is specifically concerned with the genesis of matter.
