  • Show me velocity without location in space; show me location without velocity.
  • Show me a tendency to exist.
  • Explain why, when successively magnified, all matter becomes a series of patterns serially out of focus.
  • What are the other worlds in which wave functions collapse?
  • Here you are. Show me your anti-self.
  • How can a particle also be a wave?
