Quantum mechanics is defined as, “[a] framework of laws governing the universe whose unfamiliar features such as uncertainty, quantum fluctuation, and wave-particle duality become most apparent on microscopic scales of atoms and subnuclear [sic] particles” (NOVA – The Elegant Universe); this is the mechanism by which quantum physics operates. Quantum physics, as a “discovery,” as well as a discipline, has its roots in the early 1900s. “In 1905, the accepted and proven theory of light was the light was a wave phenomenon.” However, “In spite of this, Einstein published his famous paper proposing that light was a particle phenomenon” (Zukav 133). And so, the wave-particle duality existent in modern physics, as we know it, is born. Zukav goes on to say, “Einstein’s thesis led to the wave-particle duality from which quantum mechanics emerged and [brought] with it, [ … ] a way of looking at reality and ourselves that is vastly different from that to which we were accustomed” (134). This “discovery” of existent duality was not alone in the realm of physics. For example, the duality of bourgeoisie/proletariat was beginning to rise in the consciousness of the masses during this time – along with the duality existent in socio-political spheres in the form of collectivism vs. individualism: the “greater” duality which essentially caused socialist (and inevitably communist) uprising (symbolic of the rise of post-modern thought, creating the “greatest” duality existent during this time: modern vs. post-modern). These various events were part of a “collective consciousness,” which the Chinese would consider to be similar to the “Western” notion of the soul.
