Now that we're talking photons (plural), why would multiple dimensions be required for multiple frequencies?

a wave packet will require electron to accel in multiple directions meaning multiple dimensions

What electron and how did it get into this?

3 dimensions allow for plenty of multiple directions, FWIW.

The three spatial dimensions that we perceive allow for travel in infinite directions. No other dimensions are necessary.

thanks. my point is that during, b4 and after the transition, do the electrons change their zitter bewegung from being in 3 dimensions to being in more than 3 dimensions. I would imagine so

Not that I know of. You don't have to dip into a neighboring universe to come up with a photon, if that's what you're interested in.
As he photon comprises of a wide range of frequencies, i would think they have to accel in more than just 3 dimensions

Frequency has to do with input energy, not dimensions. All frequency is (for a photon) is energy level. Or, as I would look at it, the rate at which the electric and magnetic fields are oscillating. No dimensions involved.

Move in different directions all at the same time

photon or photons are wave packets arent they

Sure. But any one photon has only one frequency. And that's set by the energy of the photon.

No single photon moves in different directions at the same time. For single particles, you have indeterminacy as to where the photon exactly is in the wave. But not different directions.

No. You may be misunderstanding what they mean by 'wave packet'.

If you think it means more than one frequency or direction for a single photon, yes.

Given nearly everything you've said thus far in this thread, yes, really.

So you know more than me how i perceive things, eh. Yeah Right

All we could know is what you post. Everything you have posted would lead most people to say that you are misunderstanding what is meant by wave packet.

arnt electrons able to be at two places at once? There can be one in an atom in the match and be entangled to another on the other side of the Galaxy?

posted on Mar, 7 2016 @ 10:29 AM

No. It's more a case of an electron being "anywhere" at any given moment. No way to tell when it will be where.

Different concept from entanglement though.

Photon is a digital representation of the em wave and hass all the attributes of an em wave

While I'm not sure what you mean by "digital" here, a photon is both an em wave and a particle.

However, that doesn't mean a single photon goes in multiple directions, or has multiple frequencies, because it doesn't.

Imo the electron that generates the photon moves in multiple directions
