This work asserts that quantum theory runs into a fundamental conflict with the principles of energy conservation inferred from the statistical evolution of interacting systems. The gist is the energy of systems by the principles of Lagrangian mechanics leaves out of account their energy associated with the phase flows of non-invariant phase volume. The quantum theory takes this fact into account, but does that improperly. We show it by presenting insoluble inconsistencies and a case study.
