Michael Talbot On Electrons

Michael Coleman Talbot (September 29, 1953 – May 27, 1992)

Time and again the limits of our language define the limits of our understanding of the universe. The indistinguishability of subatomic particles points out still another weakness of our linguistic approach to understanding reality. For instance, all electrons are exactly alike. It is as if they are all mirror reflections of one another—there is no way to distinguish between two electrons. To the physicists it therefore becomes as meaningful to say that two electrons are the ‘same’ as that two electrons are ‘different.’
