I'm getting the distinct impression that physicists don't know why this happens because I can't find an answer to this question. If it's not other particles neccessary for measurement, such as photons or even smaller low energy paticles, hitting the subatomic particles and interfering with them why are they behaving differently? Does anyone know?
