Quantum Mechanics allows this sort of thing all the time. Google Schrodingers Cat. Basically, all particles exist in a mix of all possible states until somebody measures it, then the different states collapse, and leave you with the most likely state.


Not exactly. If I remember correctly, the purpose of the story of Schrödinger's cat was actually a form of criticism against this interpretation of quantum mechanics.
