Planck’s quantum of action

I find it most amazing that – with few physical laws and geometry formulas – we are able to understand reality.

These laws – Maxwell’s equations, Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence relation, and the Planck-Einstein relation – are not easy. The geometry formulas – Euler’s formula, basically – are not easy either. But once you get them, all falls into place—like Enlightenment (or kensho, satorinirvana, etc. if you’d happen to like Buddhist philosophy). 🙂

All has a resonant frequency: photons, electrons, protons, neutrons, atoms, molecules, complex systems—all that is stable. Unstable particles and systems do not obey the Planck-Einstein relation: ω = E/ħ. They die out: they are short-lived transients or even shorter-lived resonances. We should not refer to them as particles or particle-systems, and we need non-equilibrium math to analyze them.

It is all most beautiful. I will, therefore, not say anything more about it here. I’ve written about the nitty-gritty elsewhere.

  1. Google Rotating Wave Theory of Electron by Bill Christie. I studied economics and physics in my undergrad. I was interested in science and architecture. Then I went into the School of Architecture at UBC, Vancouver, Canada. I thought I knew it all, but my architect mentor Charlotte Murray told me I needed to get outside the box, to get uncomfortable, to learn to really be aware of what I was dealing with. More humility at the end of my second degree, but it was worth it. I thus applied it to the Mitchelson Morley 1887 Experiment and realized that matter as a wave function was doing the same thing that light was. Hence no fringe shift. Then I realized that a rotating wave function explained relativity and after that gravity, charge, and more. Zitter at a billion billion times a second makes the electron appear hard. Space and time are not connected. They only appear to be via the localized wave function of matter. That localized wave function is a travelling wave rotating in a circular path. I did become an Architect and love to draw. However, my big hobby was to keep learning all I could about physics and how the rotating wave provides another insight. A fork in the road.
