There is no easy way to explain all this to you and that is why we don't try. Quantum Mechanics involves all complex mathematics because we really do have to deal with this stuff.

However Quantum Mechanics is built on thousands of experiments not a pile of mathematics.

The universe really is a lot different to how you imagined it and the childish physics we teach you at school smile
