How does science work? And what's all this about quantum mechanics?

An Electron: 1897 - 2019
===
In 1897 J.J. Thomson discovered an elementary particle - ''electron'' and
immediately many physicists ( M. Abraham, W. Kaufmann, H. Poincare,
H. Lorentz, . .) went to work trying to make models of the electron

In 1905 Einstein realized that electron can behave as a particle

In 1923 De Broglie wrote that Einstein's electron can be "wave"

In 2005 Volodimir Simulik wrote book " What is the Electron?"
In this book:
'‘ More than ten different models of the electron are presented here.
More than twenty models are discussed briefly.
Thus, the book gives a complete picture of contemporary theoretical
thinking (traditional and new) about the physics of the electron.'’
All of these models of electron are problematical.

In 2015 Brian posted article '' How big is an electron?''
https://gravityandlevity.wordpress.com/ ... -electron/

Until today we know electron by what it does, not by what it is
After more than 120 years electron is still remains an abstract, symbolic
construction and therefore you can read '' the quantum theory is weird'',
it is ''beyond common sense'', and therefore all debates about the
essence of ''Quantum Theory'' are ''blah blah blah . . .''

In 1928 Dirac formulated the relativistic theory of the electron
and invented an ''anti-electron''

An electron sometime is called ''fermion'' and sometime ''lepton''
The electron was needed many names because the electron
take part in many different interactions and therefore an electron
has many formulas and obeys many laws.
