2. Although Planck's work did solve the infinite energy puzzle, apparently this goal was not what directly motivated his work. Rather, Planck was seeking to understand a closely related issue: the experimental results concerning how energy in a hot oven—a "black body" to be more precise—is distributed over various wavelength ranges. For more details on the history of these developments, the interested reader should consult Thomas S. Kuhn, Black-Body Theory and the Quantum Discontinuity, 1894-1912 (Oxford, Eng.: Clarendon, 1978).

3. A little more precisely, Planck showed that waves whose minimum energy content exceeds their purported average energy contribution (according to nineteenth-century thermodynamics) are exponentially suppressed. This suppression is increasingly sharp as we examine waves of ever larger frequency. [COLOR=Orange][B](Epsilon=One: (Epsilon=One: This suppression is most likely a result of the increasing distance between nuclear and orbital Resoloids with each pulse of a Pulsoid.) Return to Text

7. It is worthwhile to note that Feynman's approach to quantum mechanics can be used to derive the approach based on wave functions, and vice versa; the two approaches, therefore, are fully equivalent. Nevertheless, the concepts, the language, and the interpretation that each approach emphasizes are rather different, even though the answers each gives are absolutely identical. (Epsilon=One: This would certainly indicate that the approach of Pulsoid Theory's multiple forms of harmonically, aligned oscillations to explain the enigma's of Reality are "on point.")

8. Richard Feynman, QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter (Epsilon=One: An excellent book to assist in understanding the complexity of expelled orbital Resoloids (photons); and, why the uncertainty of random Seminal Motion can serendipitously align from infinite "paths" such that a Pulsoid is formed when alignment is such that the "vector" is the square of the Pulse. Thus, the Inverse Square Law becomes one of the most fundamental Laws of Reality.) (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1988). Return to Text
