comment Electromagnetic fields vs electromagnetic radiation
wow, such a long answer. No need to shake the balloon though; I understand that every object, just by not being at absolute cero, is already emitting light (it's like electromagnetic radiation is almost a property of matter).

and that propagating disturbance is what is called a photon?

Ok, so that diagram I linked is an oversimplification. The ratiation emitted is not just one wave-length, it's a range of wave-lengths. And if after yellow comes white I guess it means the object radiates the whole rainbow at that temperature.

I see. So a photon is actually the interaction between the electric and magnetic field? (or at least the energy involved in that interaction)
