You don't really find many examples of discrete states, anywhere in the
natural world. Just not a whole lot of quantization out there, unless you
reduce to the subatomic level - and while you'll find discrete states
(quanta) there, they are by nature indeterminate.
Have to admit, we did get an interesting universe.
