Nach Heisenberg lassen sich die Bilder von Atomen malen, und zwar in allen Farben, die eine Palette hergibt. Wenn man eine Analogie aus der Welt des Verkehrs nehmen will, kann man sagen, dass die Menschen vor Heisenberg mit Kutschen gefahren sind. Jetzt stehen ihnen Automobile und vielleicht sogar Flugzeuge zur Verfügung, die einen Blick auf die Welt von oben – aus einer anderen Richtung – erlauben. 2 Eine Nacht auf Helgoland 49 Konkret für die Physik formuliert heißt das: Was Heisenberg in der Nacht auf Helgoland zu Papier brachte, nutzte eine Dimension mehr, als für die Zahlen gewöhnlich benötigt wird, die in den gewöhnlichen Gesetzen der Physik erscheinen.
