So I was randomly thinking about Einsteins most popular contribution to physics, and I have a problem with it:

If E=MC^2, then how is it possible that a mass-less photon can carry any energy?

I expect there's probably a well established answer to this, but in trying to track it down I'm realizing a lot of this stuff is well above my reading level.

Got me OP. I don't even know how I ended up on this board. I'll text my bro tho. He doesn't addict and graduates degrees in chemistry.

K so here is: shit only applies to partials dog. You gotta have mass to be a partial, see? The reason the equation doesn't make sense is, is because E=MC^2 is like, baby's first formula and is actually truncated af the real formula has photons covered mane don't even sweat it bro

there is some energy in those photons for sure man

You can't ignore your feelings4ever.
So who is it? Who is the lucky lady? Or perhaps male? Possibly both!
Tell me all about the juicy details.
I don't need a PHD in rocket science 2 senz there is a chemical reaction happening to you...

photons have mass which equals there energy divided by C^2
they have zero rest mass

E=MC^2 is the rest mass of a particle. It is NOT its total energy. Things that carry momenta (such as photons) have energy besides this. This is the reason I fucking hate it when people quote that result. It's literally not true generally for anything except immobile things. You can read about relativistic energy if you don't want to listen to the ravings of these loonies here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy%E2%80%93momentum_relation .

OK so a photon can actually push matter in their direction, without having mass. Now if a photon had mass it would not be moving at C (speed of light). Photons get their energy from the event that created them (electrons jumping energy levels).

This is correct. E = mc2 is incomplete
The full equation is E2 = m2c4 + p2

E is the energy
m is the mass
c is the speed of light
p is the momentum

Hi babe, I just wonder if phen and trypt synth threads are still alive?

Thanks! Those threads have more or less died at this point. My experiences with psychedelics is on hiatus since I my consecutive ego deaths on like 750 LSD, 35mg 2-CE, 125mg 4-AcO-DMT, and other doses similar.

That shit actually scares me to the point where weed gives me intense spiritual flashbacks and really need to take a break. Times a changed, I guess. I'll be back soon, though.

Keep grooving in the meantime and ask any question whatsoever.
