Mistake To Quantize Fields

That is a mathematical approximation. Fields are not quantized in nature in my opinion, or rather in the creativity of my mind. Particles are quantized. But they are also approximations and a creation of my mind. We cannot prove that either fields or particles exist. All we can do is develop a set of mathematical relationships that seem to explain how nature works and wins us prizes, or earns us a living.

My belief is that a set of relationships based on fields is a better approximation to how nature exists than relationships based on particles, which in my creation only has fleeting existence.

BTW, your post implys that it is possible to prove something, since you said that fields can only be induced, not proved. I am surprised at that statement as I thought you were of the same mind as I regarding proof. So I challenge you to prove something.



Or should I say DrummerDick
