When I examine the light under this magnifying glass, I'll be able to see whether it's a particle or a wave. Gasp! What?! What do you see?? A BUG! Light is a BUG!!
Let's conduct an experiment to determine whether light is a particle or a wave. Experiment? Yes! You shine this flashlight at the ground, and I'll look at it under this magnifying glass. Thus, by applying the Scientific Method, we work together to extend the boundaries of knowledge. How come you get to hold the magnifying glass?
