Time And Planck's Constant For A Photon

Alan,

A photon has a definite frequency and by your definition qualifies as a measurement of time.

Planck's constant is the constant of proportionality between a photon's frequency and its energy.

So given this I am having difficulty understanding the following quote from your post above.

***Planck's constant apparently represents the jump from one view of a set of permutations and combinations, to another view where the alternatives have changed due to the constraints imposed by the new view.***

It seems to me that Planck's constant is just the proportionality between time and energy, at least as far as photons are concerned.

Richard
