> "we are limited by our language to lists of words much as our worldly experiences limit the concepts those words bring to mind.? With this in mind Zajak points out that we naively apply to the micro world concepts which only have applicability in the macro world. Electrons don?t behave like mini billiard balls and light does not behave like scaled down sea waves. As Zajak notes ?particles and waves are macroscopic concepts which gradually lose their relevance as we approach the submicroscopic domain.? (H.Zajak,. Optics, Addison Wesly Publishing Company, New York., P. 449"
