I'm a little confused as to what you are getting at here...
Am I correct in understanding that you believe that the duality of particle physics (where they act as both a probability wave and a single particle)
applies to the grand scale objects that Newtonian physics is related to, I.E. planetary bodies, but since the particles are interacting with other
particles, creating matter, their wave form collapses, thus creating the matter we know and love?
Seems to make sense but when things make sense, dealing with quantum mechanics, you are usually wrong.
There is indeed a rift between the two, you can not apply quantum mechanics to large objects, and you can not apply Newtonian physics to sub atomic
objects. This is why a grand unified theory is sought, something to fit in the overlaps, M theory is one of the best in my opinion.
I'll have to look into your thoughts, it does seem to make sense, as shown with the double slit experiment, once you begin to measure the particle
(any measurement requires physical contact, even if it's merely a photon) you interfere with the waveform function and it behaves like a single
But I'm confused as to at what level this would manifest. A buckyball is a collection of atoms, so right there, if your theory is true to my
understanding of it, shouldn't those atoms interfere with the waveform function and for the buckyball to react with classical newtonian physics?
Personally, I still think there's a massive piece of the puzzle missing, but i sure love reading about this junk
