Anastassov (1993), SelfContained PhaseSpace Formulation of Quantum Mechanics as Statistics of Virtual Particles, Annuaire de l'Universite de Sofia "St. Kliment Ohridski," Faculte de Physique, Tome 81, 1993, pp. 135163 In the paper Anastassov presents the novel idea of 4atomism  discreteness in both space and time, more precisely, discreteness in spacetime. This seems to be a promising research direction, because it questions a fundamental continuity  continuous existence in time  at the very heart of quantum physics. Then the probabilistic behavior of the quantum object may be represented as a manifestation of a probabilistic distribution of the quantum object itself in the forever given spacetime: an electron, for instance, can be thought of as an ensemble of the points of its disintegrated worldline, which are scattered all over the spacetime region where the electron wavefunction is different from zero. Then, in the ordinary threedimensional language, an electron would be an ensemble of constituents which appeardisappear ~10^20 times per second (the Compton frequency); and, obviously, such a "single" quantum object can pass simultaneously through all slits at its disposal in the doubleslit experiments with single electrons and photons. Had Minkowski lived longer he might have described such a probabilistic spacetime structure by the mystical expression "predetermined probabilistic phenomena."
