(A disclaimer: I'm not an expert, having genuine confusion) There is a high concentration of introductory material on wave-particle duality that claims that the uncertainty principle manifests itself identically to the behavior of waves in the macro world. This however appears to be in direct contrast with most physicists here and elsewhere that claim such correlations with the macro world are at best good [to mediocre] analogies, and at worst, fallacies that take away from proper understanding on quantum mechanics. And I wonder (and question the forum), is the consensus that touching the macro world to explain those things dangerous and should be avoided, or is it safe to say "the uncertainty principle can be easily seen as an analogy on part of the behavior of common wave behavior in the macro world"? I do get a sense that would be incorrect and I wonder if I should ignore those saying "forget the "spooky" nature of quantum mechanics, it's just waves". It seems like the cheap way out.
