There exists an incorrect "assumption" in fundamental electromagnetic theory. <br /><br /> For almost 100 years we have assumed that photons physically traverse non-zero distances, i.e. that photons literally move. <br /><br /> In his second paper of 1905 Einstein wrote:<br /><br /> "In accordance with the assumption to be <br /> considered here, the energy of a light <br /> ray spreading out from a point source is <br /> not continuously distributed over an <br /> increasing space but consists of a finite <br /> number of energy quanta which are localized <br /> at points in space, which move without <br /> dividing, and which can only be produced <br /> and absorbed as complete units."<br /><br /> This work by Einstein was truly brilliant, and I <br />agree with most if it, however, I now disagree with<br />his assumption that such energy quanta actually <br />(i.e. literally)'move' any distance at all, from the <br />point of emission to the point of absorption.<br /><br /> He actually made _six_ assumptions:<br /><br />1) The energy of a light ray spreading out from a point source is not continuously distributed over an increasing space.<br /><br />2) The energy of a light ray consists of a finite number of energy quanta.<br /><br />3) The energy quanta of a light ray are localized at points in space.<br /><br />4) The energy quanta of a light ray move without dividing.<br /><br />5) The energy quanta of a light ray are absorbed in complete units.<br /><br />6) The energy quanta of a light ray are produced in complete units.<br /><br /><br /> Initially this paper paper, he assumed that a light ray’s energy quanta “move without dividing”. There was no evidence for such, this was simple limited deductive reasoning of how a particle, namely the ‘energy quanta’ of a light ray produced at source A came to exist at point B. Einstein used real motion (i.e. the human perception of locomotion) on this _new_ particle he conceived.<br /><br /> Considering that most of mainstream science considered “light to travel through manifestly empty space”, his assumption was imprisoned by human perception. Concerning particles as previously defined particles (i.e. bits of matter with real mass) have been considered, real motion from A to B was his only option. <br /><br /> The photons motion is relative! I'm simply adding one more degree to Einstein's relativity and one degree of discountinuity quantum theory. <br /><br /> The energy quanta of electromagnetic radiation <br />do not physically ‘move’ any distance (at all), <br />as EM waves propagate from the point of emission <br />to the point of absorption.<br /><br /> This means that photons are manifested one at a time, in succession from the point of emission to the point of absorption. Just as in Maxwell's third and fourth equations, a changing magnetic field manifests a changing electric field and vice-versa.<br />The rate at which photons are manifested is very<br />specific in any isotropic medium. <br /><br /> Once grasping this many of the unexplanable phenomena are easily explaned.<br /><br /> For example, the speed of light MUST be constant regardless of the motion of source or target.<br /><br /> Particle/wave duality is explained, because EM radiation is at ALL times a propagting wave of non-moving particles. <br /><br /> Photons exist as part of an EM wave. They exist in <br />our realm for a very very brief moment. <br /> <br /> Now to address your comments:<br /><br />> So what about photons then? No matter the <br />> frame of reference, their speed is always the<br />> same: c. <br /><br /> No! The photon speed is ZERO.<br />The EM wave is propagted at c, which <br />is the rate at which non-moving photons <br />are manifested. <br /><br /><br />> So no matter the frame of reference, <br />> their movement through time is always <br />> the same: zero.<br /><br /> They do not MOVE through time at all. For<br />a very brief moment the photon will exist in our<br />time, i.e. they will have real and defined values for ENERGY, LOCATION, and TIME.<br /><br />--<br />Kind Regards<br />Don Palermo<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <br /><br /><A></A><A></A>Posted by<A><B> </B></A><A HREF="http://www.blogger.com/r?http%3A%2F%2Fpixnaps.blogspot.com%2F2004%2F04%2Fwheres-einstein-when-you-need-him.html" TITLE="photon at stny dot rr dot com">Don Palermo</A>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
