Your answer shows you also are unable to accept criticism of your pet theory in an objective manner, which again suggests you have no actual rebuttal founded in your theory or any scientific knowledge.
I am able to accept criticism, that's why I'm here. I get frustrated when it is my vocabulary that is the subject. I understand that there are different kinds of glass made of different elements, and that it is a combination of atoms that make glass. I was calling that combination, a glass atom. I suppose I should have said 'molecule', sorry for calling you pedantic.

Because they graph them separately to make it easier to visualize each one without the whole thing becoming a jumbled mess.



You misunderstand. It does not oscillate between the states. It oscillates in space. So a 2p orbital/1s orbital superposition state will oscillate from being mostly on one side of the nucleus to mostly on the other and then back again. Whatís changing isnít the energy states, but only the phase relationship between them.


I misunderstood; I have been looking at it all wrong. Thanks!

It seems I have some work to do.

I pictured the tension wave pulling on the electron cloud and thus the atoms that make the glass molecules. That is an interaction, my words were misleading. When I said, 'couldn't interact with', I meant increase the electrons energy level.

Given that you use your vocabulary to explain concepts and that science uses a very specific set of terms to explain things, you should be glad you are corrected.

And you need to be corrected again. Glass is most certainly not made of molecules. If it were it would not remain a solid.
The bond between Si and O is nearly ionic in nature, though not fully. Since you are claiming to explain how electrons interact with photons in a totally novel way, the ignorance you show about the way bonding between atoms is described is not helping your case at all.

As others have suggested, I too would suggest you actually study the literature, in this case the way transition metals bond and how you describe that correctly, before you start claiming you know a radical new way.

In what way does your grid differ from the thesis by esteemed scientist Dr Gene Ray?

Your words are mainly inunderstandable.

I sit munching toast corrected: thanks. I think in terms of crystallography at times...

Hence one of my previous posts: there is an already defined and accepted language for pretty much all you are trying to say, but you are not using it. If you don't use that how are we to know exactly what you mean? It appears that you are saying things other than what you mean: this is not about picking on your vocabulary nor about pedantry, but trying to gain clarity and understanding of what you actually mean (and this is before we get to the lack of mathematics...).

Yes, if you really want to understand quantum mechanics, you have literally years of work to do, and likely a lot of math to learn along the way as well.

Have you done any calculus? How about linear algebra?

I want to say that while it is true that quantum mechanics is written in the language of mathematics, it is possible for someone who isn't versed in said mathematics to gain a basic understanding of most of the principles, on a general level. There is plenty of non-technical information available, written for a general audience, and it's not even particularly hard to find.

But it's important to remember that this basic level of understanding is quite superficial, suitable for the scientifically curious lay person, but not sufficient to do any actual science. If you want to use quantum mechanics to make any actual predictions or observations, you must delve deep into the mathematics.
