RE: Matter waves - a central concept in quantum mechanics
Particles and Waves. Interestingly, I learned mostly the Particle side of things in high school, and some Wave side of things at University. I from time to time read books about quantum theory, therefore reading your post brings back the stuff I was reading about. I love the fact matter can be waves. Some say, everything, every object has music. I suppose this has nothing to do with the waves in quantum theory, but more with the own frequency of any object :) What I find so amazing is our ability to see one thing at the time, either something as a particle or something as a wave; We can not see both states at the same time and since time progresses all the time, we can not record both states.
