Find out why the formula we use to work out conditional probabilities is true!
My thought is that where an electron is physically located is actually a chance, or probability, of where it could be. Once the electron is observed, we know for certain where on the "wave" of physical space the electron actually is. The observation of where the electron actually is removes all other location possibilities of that electron. In the "larger" world we exist in, I think of it like a range of choices a person could make. There is a range of probabilities what choice that person will make, but we only know for sure what choice the person will make when they actually make it. Like the Quantum Realm version of Free Will.
