Sometimes life takes a lazy route to its destination. Sometimes your relationship with physics demands that this must be so.
And sometimes you realise that the power you give to the profession is only because your father, a practitioner of sorts it was judged by many, held great sway over all you were able to think and do and see.
And now it is time to reject his teachings. And now it is time to be free of his dogma. And now it is time to live this life. And now it is time to be, and do, what you always did desire.
The solace of liberating yourself from quantum is now yours.
