    Wave/Particle episode has inspired me to ask Pamela a question

    Hi there! After listening to the Wave/Particle Astronomy Cast, and hearing the obvious passion you have for the subject (Afshar's experiment in particular), I thought I'd try my luck with a question/idea in this forum.

    Ten years ago, I posted a long rambling thought-experiment on Usenet, and got no useful feedback. I'd like to try again here. I'll post a link to the original post, but I've decided to include a picture that may preclude any need to even read the original post. Forgive my primitive drawing skills and terminology. If you find quantum physics at all interesting though, I hope you'll have fun considering my thoughts and correcting them as necessary. Thanks!

    In the image below, nothing is to scale, and I pulled my distances out of a hat so to speak, but that should not affect the principle I'm trying to understand.

    Well, thanks anyways. Doesn't matter as someone in the Physics Forums, after much effort, finally made me see the error in my thinking.
