Properties of some combinations of them (or dynamic of interactions between them) we label as "touch" others as "smell" or "gravity" or "wave", or "light" or "sound" or "mass", etc.

But an object consisting of many of those "elementary" objects (say, a billiard ball, or a star) does not have to obey SAME properties as an elementary object (say, a photon, or an electron).

So, I do not understand why should we DEMAND that a photon be IDENTICAL to tsunami wave or to a billiard ball? And if it is NOT identical, then to demand rejecting its EXISTENCE?

Why if a photon does NOT look as a shiny steel ball should we pronounce it as NON-EXISTING?
