Quantum of what?
Physicists have been wrestling for more than a century with quantum mechanics, a set of rules that govern the behaviour of atoms and other small systems — small compared to a human being. As a matter of fact, even what quantum mechanics is about is not so obvious: first, because if everything is made up of small constituents, then everything should be subject to the rules of quantum mechanics. Second, there are…
