## Abstract

This article is part of a program to provide a new perspective on the wave-particle duality of quantum mechanics by viewing the "spread" in particle positions and the conjugate "spread" in particle momenta as the response of the particle to an excitation from the medium which surrounds it. In this view, the medium, heretofore largely ignored or considered only passive, is now seen as active. The position probability density function of the quantum ground state of the simple harmonic oscillator is seen as a superposition of an ensemble of classical oscillator orbits that result from excitation from the aether. The aether's excitation characteristics are inferred. The probability density of orbit momentum states has the proper form to explain the quantum uncertainty.
