“absolute size—An object is large or small not by comparison to another object, but rather by comparison to the intrinsic minimum disturbance that accompanies a measurement. If the disturbance is negligible, the object is large in an absolute sense. If the intrinsic minimum disturbance is nonnegligible, the object is absolutely small.”
