comment What happens to the electron density in a metal during an electric discharge?
@CuriousOne, in the case of a gas discharge, even if we cannot distinguish individual electrons, will there be a change in electron density, e.g., surrounding the sites at the surface?

comment Does the frequency of photons decrease at outer radii of a helical mode?
@CuriousOne, your argument does not seem to be general. Would you extend it to x-ray and gamma photons, for which our experiments make it clear that they travel along well-defined lines, from point a to point b?

comment Does the frequency of photons decrease at outer radii of a helical mode?
Interesting discussion. I was wondering whether the line of equal phase was really straight, which seems not to be the case (except, perhaps, for a brief moment of time).

comment does photon travels in a helical path in an optical vortex?
If the photons are traveling in a straight line, how do ones at the inner diameter of the vortex know to undergo a change just a little bit faster than the ones at the outer diameter? Moreover, the "change" in that context would not be a sinusoidal one. I think the photons are traveling in a helix.

comment Orbital angular momentum of photon
(I guess this angular momentum wouldn't be "intrinsic," in the sense that it's required for a photon to be a photon. So I have been using the term incorrectly.)
