sometimes a particle

“…light sometimes acts as a wave, and sometimes a particle…

“The observer is not a passive player in the observation of natural phenomena. If light behaves as either a particle or a wave depending on how we set up the experiment, then we cannot separate the observer from what is being observed… The idea of an objective reality, existing independently of the observer, is lost.”

–from: The Dancing Universe: From Creation Myths to the Big Bang, by Marcelo Gleiser
