The rules governing the behavior of very small-scale physics have no classical analogy. Below the nanoscale, molecules, atoms and subatomic particles happen to be very accurately described by Quantum Theory (QT). However, the anti-intuitive nature of QT made it hard to be accepted by the scientific community, since its very genesis, for accepting QT implies the acceptance that Nature behaves as something that we can not make any parallelism with.
