Einstein created a Tower of Babel when he "discovered" Planck's **quantum** of action, in the LITERATURE, ( As Mahipal Observed.)
and with the help of the Mass Media,
brainwashed the masses to believe that particles called "photons" travel between sources and sinks and convey quanta of energy.
1. A "photon" is an EVENT whereby a SPECIFIC wave length of an electromagnetic standing wave shifts one quarter wave length and causes electrons at both ends ( Source and sink.) to shift from one stable state to another.
2. Change is conveyed between a source and a sink by electromagnetic WAVES.
3. In a lossless, totalinternalreflection path, the electromagnetic standing wave persists until such time as conditions are right for a sink electron to shift to another state, at which time a PHOTON EVENT occurs.
In other words, the universe is a sea of electromagnetic standing waves, a PHOTON EVENT does not exist
UNTIL
conditions are right to allow an electron to move to another state.
The maximum amount of energy ( Actually action ) is transferred WHEN the load impedance equals the source impedance,
and in a quantum interaction, the maximum energy and the minimum amount of energy is the same, ONE QUANTA.
Newton had this figured out very well with his Newton's Cradle, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Newtons_cradle_animation_book_2.gif
and Planck discovered that he could express a one cycle quantum change as angular momentum with his constant.
Photon events occur at sources and sinks, and electromagnetic waves exist between a source system and a sink system.
When nothing is happening a STANDING WAVE exists, and when a photon event occurs, the wave shifts one fourth of a wavelength.
Also take a look at "group velocity".

Also observe that stable VOLTAGE levels exist in electron systems, and if you calculate the levels you will find that you get a much better fit with measurements using "fine structure constant" squared divided by two, than you do using gamma.
