So, this boring history of quantum theory starts when scientists began realizing that not everything can be explained using classical mechanics (though even today i dont see how it describes things 🤔; nothing seems real). Actually, in a sense they were already aware of their ignorance but as the experimental observations began piling up and they couldn’t figure out why, they started doubting that there is more to this world than the mold they were trying to fit it all in. Too bad 💔🥺😑… But life goes on…
If I remember correctly, there was this blackbody radiation experiment; it turned out that warm bodies are quite picky in what kind of radiation they want to emit (like i set aside anything that i don’t like in my plate, no matter how fresh or healthy it is) no matter how powerful or energetic. And then Max Planck came to the rescue and told us that the electromagnetic radiation is very picky and can’t be helped.
In a pile of pages, there was a paper explaining how matter particles ignore the number of photons coming to its rescue unless they really struck the right cord. How romantic ☺❤🥰 After reading this paper that person (you know who 🤭) declared that not only the electromagnetic radiation but atoms themselves are very picky. There are teenii tiny bits inside them; these little babies are very nauseas about leaving their home 🥺😭💔
I don’t know if he woke up from a dream where he saw a swarm of photons shouting, We Are Bored…, We Are Bored…, We are Bored…!!! It was really cute, so he decided to do something about it. He thought why not announce a race between them. So, he made two holes in a paper, and… listen carefully, made them Real Close. “Get, Set, annnnnnddddd GO!!!”, he said. Cute, chubby, and yellow photons glittering everywhere around him. The Sun must be really happy today; its children, little pieces of its own heart are having a bllaaassstttt!!! Those yellow babies started racing faster and faster…. “me going fassttt 🥺” … “nooo me going faster”… but they didn’t realize that they were all racing at the same speed. “It’s so fun to see these cuties mushmashing in there”, he thought. “I should do it more often”.
Sadly, when people found out what was going on, they weren’t happy at all 😑😐. They said that’s not how a swarm of photons should behave! It’s against the law… blah blah blah. But Remember, the photons were already having a blast so they never listened to anyone, and they even started enjoying when humans were annoyed by their behavior. So they decided to do something bigger…. 🤭
One of them, who had just arrived on earth and was pretty bored travelling for millions of years, suggested. “hey buddies, i’ve heard they are going to install cameras in tomorrow’s race, to spy on us!” … “whooaaaa really!”, a little photon who just got up from its nap said. “I’m telling you, we need to really mess it up!”. And after explaining them what its plan was (author: which is always kept secret in movies so i’m not gonna tell you either) raising both of the hands said, “Are You With Me!??” And everyone shouted, “Yes We Are! We Are Bored… Yes We Are! We Are Bored”.
And again, no one was happy how the swarm of photons were behaving. Suddenly, they were famous all over the world. They kept making new plans for annoying the humans, (who were always so keen to have a control over it all) and enjoyed every bit of it. People started telling these stories generation after generation.
Not only humans, but there were others who were not happy about their fame. And they decided to beat ’em up. They were teeny tiny bits inside the atoms. But no matter how silently they talked about their plan, the atom was bound to find out. So they took it in their plan as well. 🤫
So now not only photons, but those teenii tiny bits and their atoms also became famous. But photons had their own charm and no one could ever take their place. 🥰
Humans were always having a blast, destroying everything, and killing each other but it wasn’t enough so they decided to find out why and how the photons and atoms were having such a blast without killing each other 🤔. But NO ONE EVER FOUND OUT WHY OR HOW. 🤯
While photons were celebrating and having a blast, humans were getting mad, scribbling on papers, trying to find out how they can figure out the secrets of the universe. (🤫🤭There were no secrets at all🤭🤫).
But there were some photons… They leaked some of the information to a german guy…,”Hey buddy, what’s up? You know we have decided to have some privacy. Hope you people don’t mind… and blah blah blah”. And he got so happy that he couldn’t sleep all night and waited for the sunrise with a big smile on his face.
