About corpuscles 415kB, 39 sek

"For I shall have to ask you to believe neither in corpuscles as permanent individuals nor in the suddenness of the transfer of an energy quantum from one carrier to another. Discreteness is present, but not in the traditional sense of discrete single particles, let alone in the sense of abrupt processes. This would contradict other well-established evidence."

Erwin Schrödinger, 1952
