The photons can lose energy when they bounce off things, but the effect is usually only noticeable when the things are small....sorry, you cannot view external links. To see them, please

why not consider light as a screw/tornado action instead of a wave? & how might clockwise & counterclockwise effect?
Let us summarise it then. As something have a 'elastic collision' it has the same momentum going 'away' from whatever it collided with, as it had when going towards it, as I get it?
I don't get that first part at all JP? And 'magnitude' here I presume to be a statement of that 'kinetic energy'.
What I'm not getting are definitions in where you expect the kinetic energy belonging to a colliding particle to be the same before as after a collision?
At some scale I think everything is balanced against everything, like a ever spreading sphere of relations, and if it is so then even very small differences will build up, as I guess that is
Yeah, that's a other one I'm wondering about. The conversation laws define it as transformations, nothing ever getting 'lost'. Entropy seems to defines a ground state as 'heat' ? If I got it right. But for every transformation, if we assume some logic chain from 'high energies' to 'low energies' there seems to me to be something irrecoverably lost? Would that be radiation? And if so, at what time scale does it disappear? The last one sounds weird, especially as I'm not that happy any more over 'virtual particles' but as 'energy tags down', what is it 'tagging down'?
Yeah, it's vague. But it's a valid question.
Ah, just meaning a 'interaction' So let's see, we got three ways of a 'interaction' then?
That one you should expand on JP.And you're treating it as a 'system'. It's somewhat of a paradigm shift from treating it as objects 'interacting', isn't it? Not that I see it as wrong, actually I'm thinking along similar lines myself in my totally unscientific way discussing all interactions/outcomes as definitions from where and how we measure.
