This post is the first in a series of posts based on a talk that the author gave at the 2019 Conference of the International Society for the Study of the Developing Mind. In this post, I am going to explore the concept “etherum”.
Etherum is the concept of the quantum world in which everything we observe is a quantum wave function, with each quantum wave function having a definite, unique position and momentum. These quantum waves can be described as packets of energy. As you may know, quantum mechanics is one of the big reasons why we can never repeat a single event.
I was not aware of this theory before, but I’m now convinced that it is correct. After all, it’s just a theory. The problem is, it’s a theory that is too simple to explain how it works. For example, it’s difficult to see how the quantum wave function of a photon would have a definite position and momentum.
Well, that’s actually not true. The position and momentum of a photon are just mathematical functions of its energy and wavelength. The problem is that since a photon doesn’t actually have a definite position and momentum, it’s impossible to explain the wave-function collapse that occurs as a result of a quantum event. As you can imagine, the quantum wave-function collapse is one of the best things about quantum mechanics.
The problem is that in this particular example the photon doesnt actually have a definite position and momentum. It only has a definite energy and wavelength, and that’s just a mathematical function. That means that any particle that has a definite energy and wavelength is also a possible position and momentum. A photon is the simplest example of this because it is the smallest possible particle. It could be any particle, but its the smallest.
The quantum bit is the smallest of the quantum particles (as well as the smallest possible quantum particle – the spin of a proton is about 0.99999… photons). In the standard model of quantum mechanics, photons are the only elementary particle that are both a position and momentum.
The concept of a photon is one of the simplest mathematical structures we can understand. The photon is the smallest possible classical particle that is both a position and a momentum. The photon is just a point in space and can travel from one position to another. This is why we have a photon and not a particle. This also explains why you can’t feel photons or see a photon, because photons are nothing more than a particle with a position and a momentum.
To put it simply, photons are the smallest possible classical particle that can travel across space. They are also only allowed to move in one direction, they cannot travel across space in both directions. The concept of a photon and its motion is one of the fundamental concepts of modern physics. In fact, this is one of the most fundamental physical concepts humans have ever created. The concept of a photon is so simple it can be described in an instant.
The term “particle” is not used in the most common sense because photons have no mass. Instead, particles are measured in energy. The term “particle” is used to refer to the whole thing, or a small portion of it, with the word “photon” used to refer to the whole thing. The whole of matter is thought of as particles, not photons.
