comment What exactly is Electromagnetic Radiation?
I meant a great circle on the sphere where the wave's intensity is maximum

comment What exactly is Electromagnetic Radiation?
One thing I don't understand is that the waves should really die out as the move out in a phere at inverse square rate. I am assuming you meant that at a large distance the "surface of the wave" appears flat. This is analogous to a 2D wave from a pebble dropped in a pond. Does a single wave generated due to one oscillation have a preferred plane of propagation in the surrounding sphere or is it uniform in all directions?

comment Do quarks really exist?
What is "something else that could be like a quark"? If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck then it is a duck.

Does it mean that Pauli's principle does not prohibit particles occupying the same state, but rather it says that there will be a resistance when this is forced upon the particles (a kind of repulsion/pressure).
