  • In 1924 Louis de Broglie introduced the idea thatparticles, such as electrons, could be described not only as particles but also as waves.
  • Werner Heisenberg contributed to atomic theory through formulating quantum mechanics in terms of matrices and in discoveringthe uncertainty principle, which states that a particle's position and momentum cannot both be known exactly
  • What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
  • Erwin Schrödinger describedhow a cat in a box could be in an uncertain predicament. The peculiar rules of quantum theory meant that it could be both dead and alive, until the box was opened and the cat's state measured.
  • "Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms."
