The moon is a particle but the graphing out of the moon`s path throughtime revealing phases, currents, and tides is measuring the moon wave. We then freeze future perspectives of moon particle, like full or new or first quarter, at a moment in time.

This is a relativity perspective of partcle/wave duality from quantum physics, like light or electrons.

A skier in powder snow is the particle and the "S" turns down the hill show the wave. We can see the position or the momentum in a photograph, the ski tracks are where the skier`s been, wave/momentum, while the skier is the particle/position.

Particle and wave are just perspectives. Shoot light or electrons at a thin sheet of metal and out the other side pops a particle, like the cue ball knocking the eight ball. But let two waves iteract and we see interference pattern, like sunlight reflecting off ripples on a pool of water onto a wall.

Everything has it`s position and momentum, its particle and its wave, like Jesus and God.

The analogy is not limited only to the very small like present day physics teaches us.
