Disconinuities in Quantum Theory

“The discontinuities introduced by the quantum theory require revision of physical concepts in order to meet them.  In particular, it has been pointed out that some theory of discontinuous existence is required.  What is asked from such a theory, it that an orbit of an electron can be regarded as a series of detached positions, and not as a continuous line.”

-Alfred North Whitehead
