## Abstract

Some physicists will tell you the Heisenberg uncertainty principle is the most basic aspect of quantum theory. This is clearly wrong. The uncertainty principle as Heisenberg originally proposed is not even an exact quantitative statement; it basically says some sorts of situations can not happen. Later it was cast as an *inequality*. But no inequality can be used to predict what will occur in nature, although it can predict what can not occur.
