Bohr’s Idea of the Observer’s Role The world’s physicists have given a lot of thought to what micro-particles actually are: objects, waves, fields, or charges with mass? In classical physics there is no doubt: a wave is a wave, and a particle is a particle. , momentum) are well-defined properties of the particle, with exact values, and these are completely independent of each other and of any observer. They exist objectively. Such is not the case, however, in the quantum world. Here, the prevailing uncertainties and ambivalences seem to both damage and even tear apart the independence and objective properties of the micro-particles.

It appears to be paradoxical. As yet we have no answer to this. von Neumann’s Infinite Chain If it was Heisenberg, Schrödinger, and the English physicist Paul Dirac who first created quantum mechanics, it was the Hungarian-American mathematician John von Neumann who wrote the bible of the quantum world, Die Mathematische Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik [Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics].
