According to Classical Mechanics (still nowadays able to launch space laboratories at the other side of the solar system with the highest precision), any particle beam may be converged into a single point-like focus, by the refractive role of a suitable lens system (figure A). Quantum Mechanics asserts, on the contrary, that any particle beam is piloted by a “matter wave”, whose diffractive effect shall generally lead to the formation, due to the focalizing lens system, of a narrow ( but not pointlike) focal region. And so far… so well. On the basis, however, of the well-known Schrödinger equation, which it isn’t able to exactly solve, the official Quantum Theory attributes to its approximate solutions a merely statistical and probabilistic interpretation. Already in principle, no particle trajectory may exist – not even in God’s mind! Einstein himself rejected this opinion, maintaining that “God doesn’t play dice with the Universe” (handwritten letter sent in 1945 to Paul Epstein, a Caltech theoretical physicist). And we have found these “impossible” trajectories solving Schrödinger’s equation: here they are, in figure B!
