We present a realistic interpretation for quantum mechanics that we have
called the 'creation discovery view' and that is being developed in our
group in Brussels. In this view the change of state of a quantum entity
during an experiment is taken to be a 'real change' under influence of the
experiment, and the quantum probability that corresponds to the experi-
ment is explained as due to a lack of knowledge of a deeper deterministic
reality of the measurement process. The technical mathematical theory
underlying the creation discovery view that we are elaborating we have
called the 'hidden measurement formalism'. We present a simple physical
example: the 'quantum machine', where we can illustrate easily how the
quantum structure arises as a consequence of the two mentioned effects,
a real change of the state, and a lack of knowledge about a deeper reality
of the measurement process. We analyze non-locality in the light of the
creation discovery view, and show that we can understand it if we accept
