Take a Heisenberg uncertainty principle. It originates from the fact that on a microscopic level everything (electron, proton, photon,graviton, etc)is a wave. What is the POSITION of a wave? If the wave has DEFINITE momentum (=definite wave number k = definite energy = definite frequency), then its LENGTH (which is Fourie  image of momentum) is INFINITE. (Not the wavelength, but a length of a wave packet). And what is the position of infinite wave? Infinitely uncertain. So it is MATHEMATICAL RELATIONSHIP (Fourietransformations) between entangled properties of a wave: momentum and the length of wave train.
