Mystics and crackpots mutilate modern physics so much that at the end it appears as one of their spiritual karmic entities. A favorite mutilation is to equate masslessness with non-materiality and conclude that a particle such as photon – the particle of light which is massless – is non-material. Yet the theories of relativity and quantum physics, and therefore, the entire modern physics, which studies only material objects, is based largely on photons and photon-like particles. Crackpots’ conclusion? Modern physics talks about non-material in precisely the same manner that Eastern theosophy talks about tao, qi, chakra, prana, akasha, dharma, Tantra, etc. Therefore, Eastern mysticism is on a scientific footing! … But is mass a necessary property of materiality?

In his 1939 seminal paper that won him the Nobel Prize in 1963, Eugene Wigner, the great Hungarian-American mathematical physicist, asked the question: If we assume that *relativistic* energy and momentum are properties of matter, how should we characterize the particles of which matter is made up? The answer came in the form of a *mathematical proof*: the particles of matter are characterized by two non-negative numbers, mass and spin. Either of these numbers *could be zero*. Therefore,

With the exactness of a mathematical proof, we can assert that photons – and other massless particles – are as

materialas electrons, protons, atoms, molecules, and billiard balls!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
