and emitting the same number of photons per second. These lines or rays of photons are radiating in all directions, but the intensity of light that reaches one’s eyes is dependent on the number of these lines of connected photons that reach the retina. Thus if a greater number of lines of photons manages to reach the retina the more intense will the colour appear to be. However, things are not as simple as they sound.
Non-coherent light such as this radiates isotropically, which means that it spreads out in all directions and follows the inverse square law. Furthermore, every available bit of exposed area in that window will be subject to the same amount of radiated light. How does that happen? In an earlier article entitled ‘Gestalt Aether Theory : the Aether’, a brief introduction to the Aether as viewed by Gestalt Aether Theory was made. In that article it was explained that the Universe is immersed in a vast sea of ‘virtual photons’ that have a very low energy but are otherwise identical in structure to real photons. The ‘virtual photons’ of the Aether are oriented at random until a real photon is emitted when the ‘virtual photons of the Aether, line up in the direction of propagation of the real photon forming themselves into a line whose ends rest on infinity. The energy of the real photon then travels along this line of virtual photons. However, and this is extremely important, as the energy of the line of real photons travels along the line of aligned ‘virtual photons’ it is dispersed not only forward but also laterally so that the energy from the line of real photons spread out in a cone shape from its point of origin. All of the area covered by this shape is filled with the energy of the original line of photons being emitted at the source. This is why light follows the inverse square law. As the light moves further from its origin the intensity of the light varies as the inverse of the square of the distance from the source. Energy from the original line of photons is being dissipated, even as it moves forward at the speed of light, through all the photons immediately surrounding it laterally, these in turn are passing on that energy to neighbouring photons. Note that this is in keeping with the Conservation Laws, because nothing is being created or destroyed. Energy already exists it is just being re-arranged and re-distributed. The above hypotheses raises two points, first that the longer that a source of light is radiating, the further that it will travel and secondly at a certain threshold of energy when individual photon energy cannot be sustained, the light just fades away and is dispersed across the virtual photon field !
This is directly opposed to the Quantum Mechanics view of light which views a photon like a bullet shot off into space that with no air resistance and very few atoms in its path, will travel forever until after untold distances and time it finally meets with a solid object and is absorbed.
It is tempting to view the propagation of light in the same way, unfortunately it does not meet with observed criteria. Light (ordinary light, not coherent light) radiating through space, spreads out in accordance with the inverse square law. The great question is why ? This is a question that Quantum Mechanics has never asked of itself. When there are no barriers in the path of propagation and very few atoms why then does light spread out in this way, following the inverse square law? The most obvious and plausible answer is that it is propagating through some medium into which its energy is absorbed and dispersed, and that medium is in all probability the Aether !
If there was no Aether there would simply be no possible reason for light to spread out in accordance with the inverse square law, as it does spread out. If there were no ‘virtual photons’ that composed the Aether, there would be no possible way in which each photon of the rapidly spreading photon front would be able to have the exact or identical energy as the originally emitted photon. This is the difference between the ‘Gestalt Aether Theory of photon propagation’ and the Quantum Mechanics view of photon propagation.
Photons do not travel forever from the time of emission to the time of absorption. Instead as they travel through the ‘virtual photon aether’ at the speed of light they share their energy among all the ‘virtual photons’ directly in contact with and adjacent to them resulting in a distribution that obeys the inverse square law. This is why, a source of light is present at every point from where it is visible and not only in a focused line or as a single diffracted splash of light.
To sum up, electromagnetic radiation relating to the visible spectrum and higher energies are emitted directly from the electron and form lines or rays of photons which in the case of non-coherent light spread out in accordance with the inverse square law. If the threshold energy is reached where individual photon energies cannot be sustained, the available energy disperses through the ‘virtual photon’ field and the ‘light’ vanishes.
Re-examining the Quantum Mechanics explanation for the propagation of light according to the inverse square law. The Quantum Mechanics explanation is based on an existing theory , namely the Huygens-Fresnel principle . The problem here is that the Huygens-Fresnel principle on the propagation of light is inherently flawed. The Huygen-Fresnel Principle states that Every point on a wave-front may be considered a source of secondary spherical wavelets which spread out in the forward direction at the speed of light. The new wave-front is the tangential surface to all of these secondary wavelets.
Huygens’ principle can be seen as a consequence of the isotropy of space—all directions in space are equal. Any disturbance created in a sufficiently small region of isotropic space (or in an isotropic medium) propagates from that region in all radial directions. The waves created by this disturbance, in turn, create disturbances in other regions, and so on. The superposition of all the waves results in the observed pattern of wave propagation.
Isotropy of space is fundamental to quantum electrodynamics (QED) where the wave function of any object propagates along all available unobstructed paths. When integrated along all possible paths, with a phase factor proportional to the path length, the interference of the wave-functions correctly predicts observable phenomena. Every point on the wave front acts as the source of secondary wavelets that spread out in the forward direction with the same speed as the wave. The new wave front is found by constructing the surface tangent to the secondary wavelets.
Consider what this means IF the Huygen’s Fresnel Principle ( and Quantum Mechanics also) theory on the propagation of light according to the inverse square law is seen as a consequence of the isotropy of space, it is impossible that light would propagate in only the forward direction as stated by the Huygen’s-Fresnel principle. ALSO, if isotropy of space is responsible for light propagating according to the inverse square law, there would be NO difference between the manner in which coherent light and incoherent light propagate. This is manifestly not true coherent light propagates differently from incoherent light.
