quantum mechanics...the theory of time disapears?

Right now it's very late, but I do want to ask one question to you guys.
What are the situations under which a wavefunction will collapse when talking about eigenvalues and superposition?

Right, but what are those conditions from which the eigenvalues/functions are first depicted - what is the very essence of those values that make the function collapse? I don't understand it.
It also doesn't make sense that you can have a time independent Heisenberg equation if the frequency from E = h*f suddenly has time as an independent variable, but at the same frequency has standard units of seconds^(-1)
