  1. This confirmed de Broglie hypothesis concerns only microparticles. Moreover, the wavelength depends on the pulse h/p.

    If you really think of yourself as a wave, then first you need to calculate its length.

    If one applies the de Broglie hypothesis to macro objects (although this is not accepted), for example, a human, then the de Broglie wavelength will be less than the Planck wave. Here are the calculations:

    if m=60 kg and v=10 m / s, the formula gives the following result:

    your wavelength = 6,63*10^(-34)/600= 1.11*10^(-36)Moscow, Russia.

    Try it, measure your wave incarnation. Really nothing?

  2. Man is made up of particles, the very ones that can exhibit wave-particle dualism. Most likely, inside a person, particles exhibit both, but they are more prone to corpuscular behavior – after all, inside a person, particles are mostly bound into molecules and are located among other molecules – they simply have nowhere to roam, and the mass of bound particles does not have. However, I'm not an expert here, if someone corrects me, I'll be glad.

    Wave behavior is shown not only by elementary particles and nucleons, but also by larger objects — molecules. In 1999, fullerene diffraction was first observed. In 2013, it was possible to achieve diffraction of molecules with a mass of more than 10,000 AU, consisting of more than 800 atoms each.

    However, it is not entirely certain whether objects with a mass greater than Planck can exhibit wave behavior in principle.

    The Planck mass (Mp) is close to the usual scales for humans: for example, a flea has a mass of 4000 to 5000 Mp.

    Achieving human behavior as a wave is difficult, if not impossible. I think that conducting an experiment with diffraction of people on two slits contradicts many laws and the UN convention in principle.

    Most likely, massive objects like fleas can no longer display wave properties, let alone a person.

  3. If we ignore the incorrect wording of the question and try to cover the topic in a simple way, then we do not consist of waves or particles, but of some entity that we can neither directly see, measure, or fully realize. Humans have neither the ability nor any way to grasp this entity in its entirety and at once. Therefore, the human way of knowing this essence is to build models (theories) based on association with objects already known to man and to conduct experimental research of objects using these models. So this very entity, which is neither a wave nor a particle, can be described by a wave model in a certain way of observation and interpretation, and in a different way of observation and interpretation – as a particle. We are all objects that represent the complex structure of this most unknowable entity. We can consider both the wave and particle properties of this object, but we are neither one nor the other, but only look like one or the other from a certain point of view, depending on which properties of this entity we consider important, and which we neglect or ignore. So far, the best approach to understanding this entity is to describe it as a quantum object. But even this description is probably not complete, and sooner or later we will encounter (if not already encountered) the limits of applicability of this model, and beyond these limits we will have to come up with something new…

  4. When A. Einstein was asked what a person consists of, he replied that a person consists of a bunch of emptiness. You know perfectly well that matter consists of energy and it naturally has everything that is inherent in energy A person under all conditions consists of energy and emptiness. With respect.

  5. Well, no, that's not how it works. Only Lenin is both a mushroom and a radio wave.


    The principle of quantum-wave dualism does not apply to other macro bodies.

    They have too much mass and size. Moreover, the boundary between micro – and macro-objects runs somewhere in the region of individual atoms and molecules.

  6. We are a cloud of wave packets and fields. Simply put-a wave.

    The concept of “wave-particle dualism” is no longer relevant. These were early attempts in the early 19th century to understand quantmech.

    With the creation of the KTP, everything fell into place – everything is a wave in its nature. A “particle” is a kind of reference description of a wave packet localized in a small region of space and having a certain scattering cross-section.

  7. Try to squeeze through a narrow gap, if you get something different from you, then a wave, and if you appear on the other side, then a ghost, well, and if you can't squeeze through, then a physical body.


    A wave is a form of matter. Humans, being a warm-blooded animal, emit infrared waves. Another person sees you as reflected waves in the visible range of radiation and hears in the sound range of vibrations of the environment. It feels like something soft and hairy. A person becomes a person by his actions, i.e. as a result of material influence on the material world, sometimes with kicks, sometimes with waves, as it turns out, but most importantly for the benefit of other people.

    Good deeds that define a person do not belong to material categories, i.e. neither a wave nor a substance can do something conscious, only a free citizen of society can, i.e. an individual who has realized the necessity of this or that action.

    As the famous proverb says: “Do good and throw it in the water.”

  8. The vast majority of your volume is the void located between the protons and electrons in the atoms that make up your body. Well, if a slap on a soft part of the body causes vibrations in the body, then you are a wave.

  9. First, not “quantum-wave dualism”, but “particle-wave dualism”, that is, elementary particles are both a particle of matter and a field wave.

    Secondly, waves, or more precisely, a field, are also matter, which exists in the form of a field and matter, so the question does not make sense.

  10. Modern particle-wave dualism should be counted from the explanation of the photoelectric effect given by Einstein at the very beginning of the last century. Up to this point, the opinion about the purely wave nature of EM radiation has already been established. What followed directly from Maxwell's work. But, after that, Planck discovered the constant of the same name. It turned out that ALL physical processes are quantized. This includes light EMISSION and ABSORPTION. Strictly speaking, this does not mean that light is quantized “by itself”. That's not the point. There is simply not a single experiment in which, apart from light, a tangible material body is not involved. How do you see it? So the quantization of the photoelectric effect, if we simply talk about the result of direct observation, is related to the properties of atomic matter. Light is not atomic. But, for some reason, they were in such a hurry to proclaim the quantization of it, too.

    The fact that we cannot observe light without introducing the properties of a material (atomic) body into it is one thing. Dualism of light (EM radiation) obviously does not follow from this.

    Now scientists do not deny and even talk about the remaining problem of “quantum wave collapse”. – There is no understanding of the process in which the meeting of a WAVE with an atom leads to the movement of PARTICLES that make up its composition. So, if you look at it, science itself does not recognize the same dualism “in fact”. It simply states the problem of collapse.

    Humans, however, do not collapse. And if they do collapse, it's not like that.

  11. Of course not. Dualism does not exist and cannot exist, waves and particles are directly opposite entities. It is obvious that the so-called wave-particle dualism was invented in order to justify the impotence of material science in the knowledge of nature.

  12. Since our Physicists have no idea about the existence of a 3 dimensional sine and do not study how energy is distributed and converted so this kind of misconception arises!!! An atom has volume, a wave has frequency. Therefore, a person consists of a large number of atoms, therefore he is material, but at the same time he emits certain waves and energies that can be demonstrated experimentally. What kind of energy does a person emit-thermal, electromagnetic, static, and other types of energy that have not yet been studied?

  13. LIGO was able to detect gravitational waves. This means that when a gravitational wave passes through space, then a person becomes undulating=)

  14. You are certainly material. Don't bother with this question. As long as the size of objects and their energy (motion) do not become sufficiently small, as well as the intervals (ticks) of your hours, the world consists of particles with certain sizes, occupying a certain position in space and having a certain speed. How to combine quantum nature and the classical world we are used to? Take my word for it – it's possible. But you will have to strongly reconsider the usual views on the existence and finding, etc. similar, but not identical concepts. Do you need it? Acquire extra wrinkles for the sake of what you can't touch without special skills and equipment. The simplest example: a wave on water is quite a classic object. But the energy that it carries is added or removed from it by quanta, as if it consists of particles. But it is very difficult to verify this. Something like that.
