question for the science side of tumblr:
if the observable state of an electron is only when it is interacting with a photon whats to say that it stays an electron while in the in between (potential well?) periods of it’s predictable visibility
whats to say that in these brief periods of invisibility this electron isn’t dispersed into smaller fragments in a cloud around the atom, and the overal balance of positive negative energy is what causes this electron to unform and reform from a cloud into a tangible observable thing that is affected by the gravity of the atom, like a small microcosmic starcycle of life and death.
I’ve only barely scratched the surface of QM but this question came into my head.
