Certain Uncertainty

When you realize
That what
You’ve realized
Is too complex
To grasp
You know
That only God can hold it together
While you
will have to make
with either

The Uncertainty Principle: The position and momentum of a particle cannot be simultaneously measured with arbitrarily high precision.

This is not a statement about the inaccuracy of measurement instruments, nor a reflection on the quality of experimental methods; it arises from the wave properties inherent in the quantum mechanical description of nature.

Even with perfect instruments and technique, the uncertainty is inherent in the nature of things. 1
