Discontinuity: Taking the Quantum Leap
Although there is much data suggesting that discontinuity is a feature of creative insights, some researchers have difficulty accepting this. If you are having similar difficulty, consider the work of Niels Bohr. When an electron jumps orbits in an atom, said Bohr, it does not travel through the intervening space, first the electron is here, and then it’s there. It disappears from the old orbit and reappears in the new without passing through the space in between. Instantaneously.

The quantum leap.
Light is emitted only when the electron discontinuously jumps (denoted by "pop") from an upper to a lower orbit. The atomic orbits can be thought of as the rungs of a quantum ladder. The electron pops out of an upper orbit and pops into a lower one discontinuously.

Electrons emit radiation only when changing orbits, not while they’re in these orbits.
