If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesen't find fault. James 1:5 (NIRV)

What is Light?

According to science – “light” is simply a name for a range of electromagnetic radiation that can be detected by the human eye .. and electromagnetic radiation has a “dual nature” .. as both particles and waves. One way to look at it is as changing electric and magnetic fields which propagate through space, forming an electromagnetic wave. This wave has amplitude, which is the brightness of the light, wavelength, which is the color of the light, and an angle at which it is vibrating, called polarization. This was the classical interpretation, crystallized in Maxwell’s Equations, which held sway until Planck, Einstein and others came along with quantum theory. In terms of the modern quantum theory, electromagnetic radiation consists of particles called photons, which are packets (“quanta”) of energy which move at the speed of light. In this particle view of light, the brightness of the light is the number of photons, the color of the light is the energy contained in each photon, and four numbers (X, Y, Z and T) are the polarization. Which interpretation is correct? Both of them, actually. It turns out electromagnetic radiation can have both wave-like and particle-like properties as demonstrated in experiments such as the dual slit experiment. In this exploration of light, we will primarily take the wave viewpoint as it is a more useful description of the everyday properties of light, but keep in mind that both viewpoints are valid, and sometimes we will use the quantum viewpoint too.

God is Light !! .. and according to the Bible – “God” can be detected by the human person who has “eyes to see and ears to hear” .. even though they be blind and dumb from birth. In our world – electromagnetic radiation may have a “dual nature” as both particles and waves, and is constantly changing as it propagates through space. This wave has amplitude, which is the brightness and wavelength which is the color .. and an “angle” at which it is vibrating, called polarization.

BigDaddy’s interpretation of God – as Light .. He has a “dual nature” as both God and Man ( in Christ Jesus ), but never changing – God is the same yesterday, today and forever .. and God as Light is not held captive to the confines of darkness, time, space or matter, and yet, is faster than the speed of light .. So, in closing – BigDaddy’s classical interpretation, crystallized in BigDaddy’s Mind Equation says this: when it comes to “angles” men can’t figure out whether they are coming or going.
