QED Is A Particle Only Theory

Glenn,

What you say about science is incomplete. QED, the most accurate theory in existence, is based entirely on particles, no fields. Everything in QED is hard matter, particles.

I do not particularly like that kind of reality. I do prefer the interpretation of QM where what exists in reality are wave functions like EM waves, that collapse into particle like bundles of energy, just because it is consistent with the Hindu concept of Maya.

Then there is the Bohm interpretation where bothg particles and waves exist, with the waves guiding the particles. There is also a many-universe interpretation, and probably a few more I am not aware of.

But you should not pick one particular interpretation of physics to justify Buddhism, especially when the concepts you are justifying are original in Hinduism and not Buddhism.
