This is especially true when dealing with the most fundamental branches of science. Quantum physics, in all its richness, has more than its fair share of such mysteries.

Thus far, we’ve caught a few glimpses of the otherworldly aspects of quantum physics. Photons are waves on Mondays but particles on Tuesdays. Electrons can “exist” in multiple places at once, including some that shouldn’t be allowed in the first place.
