The trouble with a Quantum Santa, part 2

This interlude story came about after I was sat thinking about quantum mechanics (as sometimes happens when you’re me). The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle mixed with Wave-Particle Duality works on the basis that anything that may possess wave-particle duality can be both a wave and a particle at the same time, but will become a fixed point upon observation. Now add to this the idea that if you had a wave as big as the universe it could, in theory, exist everywhere at the same time.

I mixed in the problem of Santa having to reach every house on the planet in one night and came up with the idea that Santa must exist in a state of Wave-Particle Duality with his wave being equal, or greater, in size than that of the Earth’s own waveform. However, he cannot be observed in this form or he will suddenly exist in only one position; which makes delivering presents a problem.

Thus this story was born. Tune in later for the rest of this little interlude!
