comment How can rising bubbles shrink and disappear?
The liquid used is Dichloromethane (a.k.a Methylene chloride) because it is very volatile, non-flammable and relatively harmless if accidentally released.

comment How do we know that there is more than one photon in the universe?
See Wheeler's "one-electron universe" for a similar idea en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-electron_universe (but it does not really make sense because there can be many isolated loops in the combined worldline and interactions that change electrons into other particles, similarly for photons).

comment Are matrices and second rank tensors the same thing?
No it doesn't. You can add more structure and define all kinds of operations but a matrix is just a 2d array of numbers.

comment Energy of gravitation
Why do you think that geometry has no energy? The geometry is dynamic so it has energy.

comment What is the actual significance of the amplituhedron?
I rolled back a change made by "community" because I did not like it. I dont mind edits that correct typos but if my answers are going to have more substantial edits then I dont want to write answers for stackexchange.
