## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I'm kind of new in the QM world and I'm having difficulties understanding the superposition and the measurement principles together with the have function collapse. This is how I understand these principles:

Superposition: While not measuring, the particle is in a superpsotion of all possible eigenstates,

Measurement: While measuring, the particle can only be in one precise state. (in other words, the wave function associated to the particle collapses)

And here's my question: when we stop doing the measurement, will the wave function be "rebuilt" so that the particle will be in a superposition of states or, in contrast, will the wave function continue collapsed until the end of the days?

Thank you very much for your anwers!
