Hello again Didier,
The intuitive idea of "events" happening to "things" is completely artificial, we know it, still we haven't (yet?) developed the linguistical and conceptual tools to dispense with it -- although some literary "cases" like Kafka and Borges insistently point to that possibility. Will it be the next collective "step"?
We seem to be speaking philosophically about the same thing. The catch is that the reality found inside the atom forces it's leading researchers to sound like philosophers. It's not a choice they make. There are simply no words to describe nor familiar concepts to relate their finds to that gives us a handle on this quantum stuff. The electron/nucleus planetary illustration is an example of how trying to describe it actually misleads the listeners.
Have a great week-end, all
