Now I have two things on my mind tonight, 1) how the Dirac equation is derived from the Schrodinger equation as a compounding of the terms into area formulas. For example, superconductivity is the compounding if Ohm's law with Malus's law when we replace resistance in V=iR with the Malus law.
And the second thing on my mind tonight is how polarization actually works to turn unpolarized light into polarized light. I need to know that because a conductor is one in which the polarization is not fully that of allowing all the light to go through but blocks some of the light, whereas a superconductor allows all the light to go through and a insulator is close to being a cross filter that blocks 100%. I need to know how polarizing lens work because when a superconductor is cooled to its transition temperature, it works because it is thence polarized to allow all the messengers to travel through and signal the electrons to move without resistance.
So those are two big questions on my mind tonight. Reading on the Dirac equation I am fascinated by how Dirac needed a 4 x 4 matrices. Now I wonder if that need for a 4 component is related to the fact that a double transverse wave has 4 vertices, 2 vertices of E field and 2 vertices of magnetic monopoles. Now the Maxwell Equations join together space and time into one fabric, for the Maxwell Equations are already relativistic, so I think I have to go back and see how or why Schrodinger did not incorporate the Maxwell Equations into his equation so that it would be relativistic. The answer probably lies in the fact that the Schrodinger Equation was a outcome of diffusion equation of Fick's law. And so, then I would have to go and see how Dirac's Equation follows more the Maxwell Equations rather than Schrodinger's equation. So in some sense, I would have to see if given the Maxwell Equations and a concept of double transverse waves, that I can derive the Dirac Equation without ever using or even knowing of the Schrodinger Equation.
As for the polarization, I need to find out exactly what happens on the atomic level when light is polarized. So far, my conceptions of polarization involve only filters or reflection, but nothing that tells me what is going on at the atomic level of interaction to create polarization. Superconduction and resistance occur at the atomic level, or molecular level and I need to reduce polarization to that same level.
