===

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?''

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 . . .''
