Well, I am a physicist and Feynman (with a y, not an i), is not talking about
the linear algebra.
Of course, linear algebra  here is used a vector space . The tricky thing
is that humans then "measure" the state. And this is confusing step that causes
Feynman to say that no one understands it.
But the measurement step and how it interacts with the vector space can be
approximated by an algorithm  using ExistentialQuantification and Arrows.
