My question is to do with our explanation for the apparent truth of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Does it result because the photons used to measure the electron alter its trajectory? If this is the explanation, why can't we account for the altered trajectory? We can presumably measure the energy of the incoming and outgoing radiation (E=hv) and so should be able to determine the energy added to the electron. I suspect it's some silly quantum mechanical explanation that I'll never be satisfied with but I have heard educated people give the above explanation. Thank you,Alex
Then the next valid question would be what is space? I suspect that is tied up with the electric field that propagates through out the Universe from all charged particles.
Suppose there was no space, time or matter and you create an electron.
The field of the electron
