What exactly is an electron any way?
An electron is said to be a fundamental elementary particle protons and neutrons are made of quarks but what is an electron made of? I looked around on the internet and apparently nobody really knows and it is still a mystery.
But I did find out a lot about what electrons can do and the only tangible substance that can come out of an electron is light.
I heard that electrons act like waves and particles as suggested in the famous "double slit experiment" Ö.
I mean to suggest that an electron is literally made of light this would explain why light can come out of it and it would explain why they can act like waves and it would explain why you can make electrons with light.
But if that were true then perhaps the electron is a ball of light.
To me that doesn't make sense to me because I thought light can only go in straight lines but according to quantum physics light photons can orbit each other!
