I am imagining the universe as one of those "live photos" (that a smartphone might take). If you say "put an electron here", an electron is really small and moves very quickly, so like in depicting a small thing in a video it kind of informs the state of multiple pixels in an localized area across multiple frames within the photo. Kind of like your eyes in a selfie. The wavelength is the set of pixels in the area where your eyes are in the photo.
