In all my reading on the dual slit experiment the idea that the particle went through a single slit is never even considered and yet I don't see any reason why this idea should be discounted. If an atom can decide to be in two places at the same time in order to give a certain result then it seems much less physical work for it to simply change its direction slightly in order to give the same result. This would get pretty spooky so I can see why we wouldn't ever want to think the atom could do that but I fail to see why the "spooky" level of it should discount it. Bottom line you can't see whats happening anyways so you don't have proof its not happening only that maybe its less likely. Am I missing something is there some law that says an atom can decide to be in two places but it can't decide to change its direction?
