In dealing with the wave particle duality theory, it helps to look at it through a different perspective. On a deeper level everything Is based on Vibrational frequecies. Energy Vibrates at a higher frequency where as Matter is a much slower, denser frequency. That also brings into effect the law of conservation of Mass/Energy & E=MC^2(Energy = Mass times the speed of light squared) This means that by speeding up the vibration of Matter times the speed of light squared, it becomes energy. (Or more correctly, slowing down the vibration of energy) This is why we have wave particle duality because they are in essence the same thing. Its like a Frequency scale with matter on one side and energy on the other.

A Practical example. It you heat up(Raise somethings vibrational frequency) say a piece of metal; it turns red to yellow to white, as it climbs up the light spectrum. eventually it will melt and become liquid, and if you keep heating it it will eventually become plasma, and if you keep heating it, it will eventually "phase out" and become energy which will immediately disperse.

does anybody have any other thoughts?
