What are photons?

Photons are said to be the quantum (new-Indian-term: प्र-भागी) that carries the energy of unified electromagnetic fields.

An unified field is an advance treatment of electric and magnetic fields that are treated “same” because of a great idea of Einstein’s special theory of relativity. Like the equivalence of space-distance and time-intervals, electric field and magnetic fields are the manifestation of the same “gauge” fields. This is necessary if one observes the electric and magnetic phenomena from a space-point (or frame of reference) which is moving so fast with respect to the highest speeds attainable in our Universe that if something moves even at 1/20th the speed of light differences start to show up in our calculation from so called classical understanding.

The nature of Physical truth and our approach to find it

The Unification of fundamental physical interactions is a result of that abstract thinking, and look at it, we are successful because nature nods “agreed”. One example of this unification is is how the electric fields (E) are same as a magnetic field (B) if you recognize that the E, B fields are not fundamental but a mere form of the more fundamental field when the speed of reference is quite ordinary. This was explained in much detail in the preciding chapter: What are photons? There we learned how we see these fields in an everyday sense, we do not see the lightening speeds if we were to we would not be seeing these fields but their rather fundamental origin and we would see that there is only one field: the electromagnetic field, which is jumping from one state to the next releasing something we call the photon or light corpuscles.
Now reductionism can be understood as a prevalent thinking in the theoretical approach to understand our Universe…

The story of particle physics

sitting here on my desk, a self-procreated office locus, on a rainy and lightening midnight what can I do?

My love for physical isn’t too much a secret. I try very hard to transcend that to Physics. And without much self-organization I can not weave the scattered threads. So I will just pick randomly on a topic and give it a go. I choose the importance of vision and say “what direction is particle physics going?”.

Why nothing moves faster than light !!

There is an interesting discussion on twitter why “nothing can move faster than light”. I could not resist myself from a simple explanation

I also think a similar one might have been given by Einstein himself, long time ago, so forgotten by most when they try to explain it.

How does something go faster !! by burning mass.

In case of a car to move faster and faster one has to burn the fuel, more mass in less time.
