A curious mind.

comment Can we describe the classical laws of physics in a frame-of-reference-independent way?
I have accepted your answer, since I think this point of view will be most useful to me. Could you perhaps recommend some literature explaining classical mechanics from this point of view?

Thanks! I've been studying some differential geometry lately, so this point of view is more than welcome. I'll have to think this through when I have some more time, but for now, +1.

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?

comment What happens if we put together a proton and an antineutron?
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?
