From Quantum Motion to Classical Motion—Seeking the Lost Reality

We show that the natural motion of particles in continuous space‐time (CSTM) is not classical continuous motion (CCM), but one kind of essentially discontinuous motion. The wave‐function in quantum mechanics is the very mathematical complex that describes CSTM. The Schrödinger equation is just its simplest nonrelativistic evolution equation. We call such motion quantum motion. Furthermore, we show that, when considering gravity, space‐time will be essentially discrete, and the motion in discrete space‐time (DSTM) will naturally result in the collapse process of the wave‐function. This collapse finally brings about the appearance of CCM in the macroscopic world.
Keywords: quantum motion, classical motion, continuous space‐time, discrete space‐time, wave‐function, Schrödinger equation, wave‐function collapse
