Perhaps this is an easy one for you experts our there. When we consider an electron that occupies some local and small region of space, and then we assume that this electron [if it means anything to talk about a particular one] is un-measured - back in an unknown state- but that by the laws of physics it must still exist with some radius of our local space Ct, where t is the time since our last measurement of the position of charge q, and that this electron then disappears from this local space due to some quantum fluctuation, or by some other acceptable mechanism allowed by Quantum Theory [I don't claim to understand what I'm into here]. Then what about the dE/dt of local space - E being the electric field of local space? Do we require that time is quantized here, or can dE/dt become infinite? Am I way off track here? It seems to me - based on my limited understanding of such strange stuff - that this situation is allowed. But it also seems that if it ever did happen and we would all go to infinitely magnetic...which would seem to be a problem. But I also understand that quantized time is still considered an unresolved proposition. Enlightenment please?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
