Shakespearean Quandry Has Limits

As a measure how far can this be taken? Some like to think like Smolin, and Smolin's reference to Glast is a important one:)This defines his limits.

Others, have decided to go beyond this.:)

If you could trap a photon into a blackhole but utilising its own gravitational mass, it would spin around endlessly. In classical electromagnetism, a photon is pictured as a pair of sine waves, one representing electric and the other magnetic field. Half of the photon is negatively charged, and half positive. Although pair-production is normally thought of as being an abstract process, it can be considered crudely in classical terms. You need a gamma ray of at least twice the rest mass energy of the electron. It interacts with a string field near a nucleus, and there emerges a positron and electron. Somehow the energy of the photon has been converted into matter and antimatter. If the classical analogy is of any use, the photon has broken into two loops, two black holes, each spinning at light speed. When you look at the electric and magnetic fields which result for this electron, it gives the radial electric field, magnetic dipole, spin, and mass.

The usual barrier between classical and quantum theory can be broken down.
