On 04/11/2013 02:39 PM, Bruce Sherwood called attention to
"There are no particles, there are only fields"
idea he reviews is that everything is fields; "there are no particles" (to
put it provocatively).
An excellent point. To me this is completely un-provocative. I've been
explaining it that way for years. I gave up on "wave/particle duality"
back when I was just a sorcerer's apprentice.
Wave mechanics says one and one makes 0, sometimes. Wave mechanics says
one and one makes 4, sometimes. Wave mechanics says one and one makes
2 /on average/. We can see how the classical result emerges from the
quantum-mechanical result, in the appropriate limit.
