comment Common false beliefs in Physics
Oh come on now. There is no accelerating charge in the ground state of the hydrogen atom and everyone knows that.

comment Common false beliefs in Physics
It's hard for me to understand what you are trying to tell me. In what interpretation are the charges accelerating in the ground state of hydrogen? More to the point, when you say "this is not correct" I'm wondering if you can identify one specific error in what I said?

Aaron, while I believe my last edit was technically correct, I have concluded that it does not really address your actual problem. So I am going to edit my answer one more time...

Yes, you're right again. I'm going to revise my answer for the third time.

comment Focusing light into an optical fiber cable
Okay, I must be wrong, because it is true that using a magnifying glass, I can make an image of the sun that is smaller than the actual sun.

comment Focusing light into an optical fiber cable
Those seem like related issues. If I can make a smaller image by collecting light over a certain solid angle, then can I not make multiple images in different places, collect them with optical cables, and concentrate them into a single reduced volume?

comment Does a photon interfere only with itself?
Robert, perhaps you will post this as a fresh question, because questions that appear in the comment field do not seem to attract much attention here. I for one would be happy to post an answer.

comment Why does light change direction when it travels through glass?
Looking it up on Wikipedia, it appears to me that Fermat's Principle is indeed nothing more than the rule that light gets from A to B in the least amount of time. This doesn't explain why. If anything, Huygen's principle appears to be more in line with what I have called an explanation with a mechanism. Either way, I still do not know what further insights are gained from QED; and I am not aware of any corrections to classical trajectories are obtainable by a more complete QED treatment. If you are able to correct me on this I would be interested.

comment Tracking photon color in Bell experiments
This is a really good answer to a question I put up a few weeks ago. It raises more question in my mind which I think I will place as an edit to my original question, because otherwise it will tend to languish unnoticed if we try to discuss it in the comment field.
