This article is part of a series of articles about the Karpinsky Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. There is also The Karpinsky Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics Part 2.

In the article, I am going to show that we all have had the wrong idea about what is quantized in quantum mechanics. We have thought that the energy of a photon is…
