I remember once, as a child, thinking that objects do not really "move," but that at a very small scale they would have to "disappear" and then "appear" again at their newly shifted position, just the way computers render moving particles based on refresh rates. This relates to Zeno's paradox which is solved by infinite sums.
Then I heard about quantum wave function collapse and the double slit experiment, and then thought: oh, maybe nature solved the problem by turning anything that wants to move into a wave instead of making a single particle "appear" and "disappear" in new positions as it moves. Waves is by the way a very elegant solution in comparison.
My question is: was my thinking correct? are waves (and wave collapse) nature's way to make particles move around?
