    It is only a thing in respect to your experience of it, but when you don't have the experience it is a possiblitiy.

    this question has beatiful answer from theory of quantum electrodynamics
    feyneman the father of this theory has convincingly explained that there is no neccessity of a particle-wave picture.
    he explained with his theory how even paricles of light can be used explain patterns of interference.. hence no need attribute this nature of light to be as a wave.

    his theory is based on something called sum over histories..
    a probablistic approach.
