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.
