ENTRY DESCRIPTION

The Quantum Interpretation explains the particle and wave properties of a photon or quantum (plural: quanta). In 1951, Albert Einstein wrote, “All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me no nearer to the answer to the question ‘What are light quanta?’” I believe he was very close to answering the question with his general theory of relativity. There he had the amazing insight to state that gravity results from the curving of spacetime. Now spacetime becomes something that is bent at the macro-level. If he looked at the micro-level, he may have declared that a photon is an energized spacetime particle. Like spacetime, a photon has no mass. If gravity results from bending spacetime at the macro-level, then electromagnetism results from energizing spacetime at the micro-level. Travelling at light speed, a photon produces a spacetime wake or wave. Just like the bending of spacetime in the general theory of relativity, the wake is a bending of spacetime. This same result happens when a boat is moving through water. As the speed of the boat becomes greater, so does the wake. The Quantum Interpretation provides for the wave-particle duality of light. It refutes the Copenhagen Interpretation which states that light does not exist as a wave or particle until it is observed or measured. Einstein hated the Copenhagen Interpretation and asked, “Does the moon exist only when you look at it?” The Quantum Interpretation should change the world of quantum physics. Instead of looking at the world as “deterministic” by the act of measurement or by probability waves, the Quantum Interpretation looks at the world as “realistic” or having pre-existing properties. It supports Albert Einstein’s famous remark, “I cannot believe that God plays dice with the universe.”
