      Richard Feynman once said: “nobody understands quantummechanics”. Still, those who devised it are perhaps the onesclosest to understanding their creation. It suggests that wheneverthe weirdness of quantum mechanics haunts you, it isbetter to go back to its creators in terms of their originalpublications. In the present article, the author has tried toseek help from Heisenberg’s 1925 paper, in order to reducethe weirdness of going from classical observables to quantumoperators.
