Quantum theory is extremely successful in describing the micro cosmos. The caveat is that nobody knows what quantum objects really are. Consequently, the intention of this article is not to introduce any new formalism but to develop some ideas about the ontological meaning of quantum theory. The centerpiece of quantum theory, the Schrödinger equation, requires a deterministic development of quantum systems; measurements however show an indeterministic distribution of measurement values. All previous interpretations of quantum theory are dubious. Here we will present a new understanding of one of the key features of quantum theory, namely, of superposition. Contrary to the previous understanding of the concept, we assume that superposition represents an oscillation between different... states. This will lead to a completely new understanding of the universe and of quantum objects. Quantum objects are no longer considered to be elements in space, rather they are considered to be properties of space, namely, possibilities for interaction. The new understanding also leads to the conclusion that space and time are discrete. This entirely new concept will finally provide some relief for Schrödinger's cat.
