Superposition limitations

  1. Jan 4, 2016 #1
    Hello, my question is a bit broad but it is as follows; when a particle is in superposition do any laws affect or limit the possibilities for that particle. An example would be if a particle is observed in space then during another instant it is not observed will that particle be at the edge of the universe or would it be limited to a specific radius (i know for this example there are nearly infinite possibilities but just as reference).

    The speed of light is always a limit for subsequent position observations of a particle.
