    … but Heisenberg is more appropriate than Einstein.

    i’m uncertain about this statement and the principles behind it.

    ^ Yeah, kind of a 20thC-physics-geek point.

    Anyway, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (you cannot know for certain both position and momentum simultaneously) is a fundamental part of Quantum Mechanics, which Einstein didn’t buy into (he liked a deterministic Universe, not the probabilistic one of QM).
