What is light? go to light-sequences
Physicists are discussing this question since a long time. Some experiments show results as if light is a particle, some other as if light is a wave. Fundamentally you could think of four different viewpoints:
1. light is particle
2. light is wave
3. light is both particle and wave
4. light is neither particle nor wave
Our logical mind thinks, that it is necessary to opt for one of the four viewpoints, because each of the four seems to be in contradiction to the other three. This contradiction is eliminated, when we assume, that light is a process, which includes all four viewpoints as four necessary aspects of an overall process. This kind of approach is based on the idea of the great Indian philosopher Nagarjuna, who postulates, that all phenomena are beyond the four extremes of existing, non-existing, both and neither. I took this approach and from that developed a graphic model, which I called the „quantum model“. The graphics shown here are depicted in colours of the Shambhala-tradition.
Fig.1 shows light as sequence of two manifestations, wave (orange and white arrows) and photon (black dot), arising from a source, where light is neither wave nor photon, depicted here as the area blow the blue arrows. Wave and photon are just potential, but not manifested yet. Therefore this source is called "not-manifested potential". The cyclical light-process is a mandala, manifestations of wave and photon arise flash-like and are self-liberated immediately after that, dissolve back into the not-manifestes potential. Flashing happens with the frequency of light, wich is hundreds of trillion times per second. Fig.1 shows light as process, in which light is wave and particle, but also the common source. And within this source, the not-manifested potential, neither wave nor particle are manifest.
Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr has described a similar process of manifestation from the not-manifested in one of his lectures* as arising like in the beginning of the BIG BANG. In the same way photons appear BIG BANG-like from the not-manifested potential. The term BIG BANG points to the fact, that this kind of arising brings about not only new manifestations of form, but new manifestations of space as well.
Fig.2 shows this manifestation of space, depicted here as light-blue area with a white dot. The white dot in space is the invitation for the photon to manifest there.
Fig.3 combines Fig.1 and Fig.2. The white dot of space is not seen, because it is hidden behind the black dot. In Fig.4 the white dot is depicted a bit apart from the black dot to show, that space manifests first and form (photon) follows.

".. the joke is, that there is nothing in-between. In the left the electron disappears and in the right it will appear again, that means that out of nothing something appears and is sinking back again into nothing. It is a lively, genuine creativity, that means that it is not a development and not an unfolding, but that it is really something new, which than disappears. It is like at the beginning of the BIG BANG, it takes place continuously: The world is created new every moment, but with a memory of the world before."
In his lecture Prof. Dr. Dürr uses the term BIG BANG not to refer to the famous event, which might have happened 13,7 billion years ago, but to point out, that BIG BANGs are happening here and now continuously. Therefore it is not the one and same electron moving from A to B. The electron A vanished into nothing, and out of that nothing the electron B arises as totally new electron BIG BANG-like. Electron B is therefore totally new, but at the same time it is similar to the electron A, because it has arisen with a memory of the electron before.
