This article seems pretty intriguing, as an explanation for a phenomenon that occurs when electrons are shot into liquid helium. The electrons apparently "break up" into smaller size "things" and travel through the helium faster the smaller they are.
The explantion is that when the electron hits the top of the liquid helium, there is a chance that some of the wave function will be reflected back up and then some also continues into the helium.
How would the the electron charge break up if the electron is able to split its wave function like this, considering that electric charge can't be created or destroyed, I guess the smaller size "things" will have a fractional charge of a full size electron?
If this is the case does it imply there is no fundamental nature of an electron since the wave function and physical nature of the electron can be split like this?
