comment What exactly is a quantum of light?
@Ron: I have upvoted your comment, because I completely support your right to do so, but I have to say that I accepted that answer for a reason. It is because I believe it has given me the most insight into how physicists think. Your answer and your comments were also very helpful and together with the other answers helped create a better picture of the concept in my mind.

@voix: thanks, this is pretty much what I was hoping for in question (2).

comment What happens if we put together a proton and an antineutron?
Since an antineutron is made of quarks -u, -d, -d and a proton is made of quarks u, u, d, I can imagine what remains is a particle made of two quarks: u and -d. According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mesons that could be a pion or a charged rho meson ... Could it behave like an atomic nucleus?

Ok, but this raises two more questions: (1) what about at other energies or some other circumstances? (2) If it annihilates, is it still possible that the thing it annihilates to remains somehow stable enough to behave like an atomic nucleus?

Thanks everyone, I have upvoted your answers, since they're all quite helpful at this stage. I'll have to think about the answers for a few more days before I accept the one that is the most helpful to me.

Thanks for the suggestions. The double-slit video is quite interesting.
