Let There Be Light!

2 years, 2 months ago

Above all else, the presence of light has given rise to life. All energy comes from the sun, and our entire universe is filled with light-generators.

Does anyone else share my fascination and deep curiosity with the power and mystery of the photon?

It also moves exclusively at a certain speed, seeming to be maybe the only constant in the equation of reality.

@ancientmystic, I’ve been reading a physic forums about photons for the past hour and this thread showed up and I couldnt be happier.

I have deep fascination of photons as you do. Photons can act as a wave and a particle and that just blows my mind. My question for this elementary particle can be answered by most physicists but I still dont get how photon is ‘massless’. Do they say its massless because its so light weight (pun intended) that physicists decided to just round it down? Also if its truly massless, then why does it have a constant speed?

First, please share your physics forum! That is a new idea to me, but it strikes my curiosity!

Second, I find it terribly hard to visualize a photon without mass, but that same trouble helps me to visualize it moving constantly at light-speed.

Paradoxical… :)

@ancientmystic, here is the forum that i go too: http://www.physicsforums.com/

Be aware, it can be quite challenging to understand wtf they are talking about but that is a good thing if you decide to do external research on the concepts you don’t quite understand.

The thing that is mind boggling to me is that if its truly massless, wouldn’t it be everywhere in the known universe at the same place with unlimited speed? Maybe consciousness is massless?
