Photons don't have poles and the spin is not like spin in classical mechanics. In this case that means that photons don't behave as "spinning pole over pole."
Glad you recognise that ;)
We seem to have had a similar conversation in new theories, do you have a relative called waterpourer?

Aquarius might have got himself locked out, and decided to re-engage for a short while before going travelling in space again, so logged in as water pourer.

Kind regards

aquarius pouring water.
At least there is still some outpouring and you haven't dried up or been reduced to a mere dribble.
