Alex,

1. The Copenhagen Interpretation of QM considers the electron to be distributed throughout a wave function until the act of observation causes it to collapse into a point. But why should the mere act of observation cause a wave function to collapse?

Simply put, in order for a particle to be observed, at least one outside particle *must* come in contact with it. So the disturbance of the original particle by the outside particle has caused the original particle's position to be known, and thus we perceive the original particle as 'particulate.' Thus, the Copenhagen Interpretation assumes, reality does not exist until (or unless) we observe it.

Are you sure you want to make this claim?

2. >>>"No causality can be defined within time of pass of wave."
