How do the energy particles/waves know what is the cheapest route?
By trying routes in all directions and following the easiest one they encounter ...
The random Brownian motion of the particles mean they try to move in all directions, and will follow the path of least resistance they encounter, e.g. a patch with lower pressure, or region with less electrical repulsion , ( the filaments in Lichtenberg figures are evenly spaced because they repel one another ).
And is the reason why they can encounter routes in all possible directions due to wave-particle duality? Because the wave property is able to simultaneously try every possibility and therefore will "select" the path of least resistance?
