And no, please don’t accuse me as trying to
dominate this thread; it’s just that I agree
and intend to agree with the atomistic viewpoint
and am merely speculating on the composition of
the invisible lines-of-force between participating
particles. Lines of force idealized and imagined
as iron particles on a sheet of paper with a magnet
underneath, but otherwise quite invisible.
I’m saying this as an experienced coder of numerical
simulations of things, NOT as a physicist.
So my image of those invisible lines of force as not
only being described by conjugate polynomials, but also
caused by the conjugate polynomials, might, as some say,
be too good to be true, and therefore most likely false.
So I elevate conjugate-ness to a first principle in
retribution….. makes sense to me….
