  Thus the mathematical physicist tends to believe that their language of mathematics is the closest possible approximation to describing this strange reality, and is limited to describing the numerical relationships between things, rather than describing the things themselves. 
  Philosophy, by contrast, does not examine some portion of what is, in respect of the accidents of each such group of things, but contemplates being, as the being of each of such things. 
  Fortunately, mathematics is not subject to this limitation, and it has been possible to invent a mathematical scheme  the quantum theory  which seems entirely adequate for the treatment of atomic processes; for visualisation, however, we must content ourselves with two incomplete analogies  the wave picture and the corpuscular picture.
