This is the result that made all this possible:

Early 1970s, Emil Grgin and Aage Petersen (Bohr's personal assistant) were investigating the links between classical and quantum mechanics at Yeshiva University in NY. It was Bohr's belief that the correspondence principle had more to reveal.

Out of this work first came the idea of the correspondence between observables and generators (now known as dynamic correspondence), and to make it all tie up, the idea of composability. This turned up to be a core principle of nature and the key insight needed to really understand quantum mechanics.
