No. With Quantum Mechanics NOTHING is a wave function, that is to say no
observable quantity is. The wave function is a calculation device of no
more reality than lines of longitude and latitude. If you want to talk
about reality you've got to SQUARE the wave function, and even then all you
get is a probability not a certainty; not only that but the wave function
contains imaginary numbers so 2 different wave functions can yield the
exact same probability when you square it.
