Apparently you do think that the universe revolves around humans' perception of "everyday life". We are not talking about what matters to humans, but whether a model matches reality. Of all the activity taking place in the unverse at any one moment, things that are "accurately" modelled by Newton are ESOTERIC compared to the number/scope of things that are "accurately" modelled by Quantum.
