Mark,

>>>What About The Letters On This Screen? What are they? ......continuous flashes of light that encounter the phosphorus chemicals on my computer screen's pixels? What you are reading right now is the same thing Peter will be reading is the same thing Alex will be reading....and so on and so on....but the ACTUAL A's B's and C's on this screen surely can't be in two places at once.....>The reason I bring this up is because it was a precurssor to a solid point I'd like to bring to your attention. I am proposing that it is NOT actualy objects that we see and touch that we call "real". What I think is real is one thing, and one thing only, ....INFORMATION!>Is position a piece of information?>The wave function is simply the "uncollapsed" quantum state, and hence I myself find it safe to say that the particle IS everywhere at once until an observer collapses the wave function ....well.... the information is everywhere at once.
