    Photons know a few tricks that physicists don't.
    ==..
    1. Einstein discovered photons *without mass*.
    2. Dirac discovered virtual photons with *imaginary mass*.
    3. Photons take part into photosynthesis and must have *positive mass*
    ( biological physics - quantum biology)
    4. These three kinds of photons should not be imagined as being
    the same kind of photons that we see from a flashlight.
    ==..
    There isn't *Physics* without *Quantum Physics*.
    There isn't * Biological Physics* without *Quantum Biology*.
    Physics - - > Quantum Physics -- > Biological Physics - - > Quantum Biology
    and photons take part in all these effects. And in all these effects photons
    know a few tricks that physicists cannot understand. Photons are an enigma.

    1) Reality is based on particle dynamics (!)
    " For the basic problem of philosophy seems to be to discover
    the forces of nature from the phenomena of motions
    and then to demonstrate the other phenomena from these forces."
    / Newton . /

    2) Trying to "simulate photon's behavior" we are confused because
    a) on the one hand, photon at constant speed c=1 knows a trick
    to have infinite frequency and wavelength.
    b) on the other hand, photon knows a trick to have specific
    frequencies and wavelengths.
    =.
    Conclusion: We cannot understand the dynamical behavior of photon.

    and dont forget, when we are trying to find if they are particals or waves, they know which test started first.

    1) In 1690 Huygens published his wave theory of light,
    2) In 1704, Newton published Opticks, in which he expounded
    his corpuscular theory of light.
    3) In 1954 Einstein wrote:
    " All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me
    no nearer to the answer to the question, 'What are light quanta?'
    Nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows it,
    but he is mistaken.'‘
    4) Today's opinion is: photon can be particle and can be wave . . .
    . . . . . . but . . . . " it is not wave nor particle".
    ==.
    The problem is: to explain how the wave-particle (as " both /and / or")
    is converted ( "to/ either/or") during the act of observation.
    In my opinion, the key to understand photon (and this wave-particle
    converts - duality) is hidden in the photon's geometrical form. (!)
    The thought that photon is a "point" brings misunderstanding.

    Most of that end of physics is people making new guesses based on a strong FAITH in someone else's previous guess.

    If that happened in any other science we would laugh them out of business.

    Physicists are like rock stars; all show and very little substance.

    No, maybe they are more like Popes. You need real strong faith to believe they have the one true answer.

    . . . but . . . only the "Physics" can explain us the nature and existence

    As a fun thought experiment, I like to think of what the universe "looks like" from the point-of-view of a photon.

    At first, if I were a photon I would not "look like" a point.
    At second, at constant speed (c) I (as a photon) have no "time"
    (like a dead man) and the universe would look very boring and therefore
    I will try to change situation and create "time" by some action.
    Maybe by act of "vacuum transformation / polarization"
