leaving us seeing the blue!
Explained Heisenberg one day to his son,
"My Principle is not a difficult one.
Measuring x is an ease,
and finding p is a breeze,
but determining both I'm not sure can be done."
Is light a particle or wave?

What causes the mountains to lift?
What causes a fissure to rift?
What makes the ground shake
