Is there a (theoretical) partial or total inconsistency in QFT's postulate/premise/description of elementary particles as dimensionless, point-like objects with respect to the wave-particle duality nature of QM? This is in the sense that such description is *only* particle-like.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Clearly, even if there were such inconsistency, QFT remains an extraordinarily successful descriptive framework of nature. If the inconsistency is there then, what theoretical issues would it give rise to?
