No my objection is to the term quantum and thinking of light as particles i.e. a photon. which has no baring in reality.

But we have covered that.a quantum is a discrete unit of energy. I fail to see what you objection to that statement and therefore the word is

Waves are infinite in potential, quanta discrete units of energy are a finite resolution. Not infinite.

Of course they are not infinite.they are discrete. Waves are infinite in length not energy.

 

There is no contradiction there

Apologies I mean a field is infinite potential. Not a discrete resolution of potential.

Fields are infinite in length as well.the wave moves through the field for well ever.

 

The energy decreases over time to a lower quantum of energy but never no energy

The energy decreases because of conservation of energy, and pauli exclusion principle is at play at all times. Fields are infinite potential, not any dimension/attribute you try to attribute to it.

No it doesn't it decrease as the wave get stretched on it journey. That's why stars are dim and the sun is bright the photons had the same energy when they left

no that's because of inverse square law and radiated energy of all types following that. Talking of stretching, that is doppler effect seen visually, which is qhat gives rise to red and blue shift.

And why does light get dimmer in accordance with the inverse square law ? Because the photon loses energy over distance

It's the formular that applies not a explanation

Yea but they only get longer.so just red shift

and blue when the object is travelling towards you, its analogous to doppler, instead of being sound it is light. Interestingly there is a doppler circuit within a magnet.

Have you misread that. There is a dipole in a magnet

yes it can, light is omnidirectional not directional. The blue or red shift is a stretching or compression of the "wave" which moves it up in pitch in terms of doppler, or towards blue in light, down in pitch or red in light.

No it cant.it depends on photons hitting you retina. If the photon is traveling away from you it cant possible hit your retina
