The only thing we can be certain of

We know that particles display properties of both particles and waves. This triggers the question of whether it means that particles are both particles and waves or that particles are neither particles nor waves. Particles are obviously balancing between particles and waves, the question is if it means that they are both or neither.

If they are both, then it invalidates our distinction of particles and waves, whereas if they are neither, then it invalidates our distinction of particles and waves. The only thing we can be sure about is thus that reality invalidates our distinction of particles and waves, and thus also our distinction of parts (ie, particles) in reality.

In spite of this, the distinction of particles and waves is practically useful if we consider particles to be neither particles nor waves.
