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 electro-magnetic 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 electro-magnetic WAVES.

3. In a lossless, total-internal-reflection path,
the electro-magnetic 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 electro-magnetic standing waves,
a PHOTON EVENT does not exist


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,

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 electro-magnetic waves
exist between a source system
and a sink system.

When nothing is happening
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.
