He was a bit more rational than his followers, but having started up something with massive momentum behind the toleration of contradictions which would in every other field be recognised as invalidating a theory, it set up something like the giant red spot on Jupiter which just keeps on going as a very stable, persistent entity.If everything was perfect, we would be quite unhappy, so long live our mistakes! :0)
How can you confine it when a wave radiates out in all directions unless you have some kind of container spread all round the outside?Lasers don't radiate in all directions, and they work sort of like my particles: the light only bounces back and forth between two mirrors instead of between two particles. In addition, the light emitted by one of the particles has just escaped from the steps between its components because they are always a little late from the particle's one, which helps to confine its direction, so as to be completely absorbed by interference in the line of sight between the particles. We can produce that kind of interference with lasers, and particles are a lot better tuned than them, so why couldn't they?
