The NO Zero-mass Particles Is A Bit Odd

Especially for an astronomy forum where what we think we are detecting is starlight in the form of zero-mass photons. If photons had mass, they could not travel at the speed of light and the universe would be considerably smaller than astronomers now think it is.

In the most accurate theory available, there are no waves, only particles. The bosonic form of string theory is in 26 dimensions. But two are timelike. So perhaps you meant 24 space dimensions.

You will not find any decent physicists on this forum. Not even astronomers as far as I can tell. I recommend presenting your ideas on the physics forum where they will receive learned criticism, pro and con. It can be found at
