"In quantum physics, the wave theory states that at a certain point in a range of probabilities, one becomes a visual reality. That reality precipitates a whole new range of probabilities and is known as ‘popping the quiff.’

Popping the quiff is commonly experienced by both scientists and artists. It is in that “a ha moment” that Joseph Campbell believed art could have a catalytic impact."  –Haruko Okano
