If there is a photon in a vacuum, then it isn't a vacuum, is it?
Meaning, light and other electromagnetic "forces" are their own element on which their wave travels.
Is it a particle or wave? It is both at the same moment, but just as you cannot "say" where a particle is and at the same time determine its direction of travel, so you can not "see" electromagnetic phenominom as a wave and a particle at the same time?
What do you think?
