I recently had a fever, and while lying in bed burning up, I decided to take my mind off it by thinking about physics, when I had an interesting thought. most people say light behaves like a wave and a particle, but I don't think thats true. we never actually observe light as a particle, during or at the end of its trip, the only thing that happens is that an electron (or several) absorb the whole energy of the wave in a finite point, which fools us into thinking of the light as a particle, when in fact we are just looking at the particle-like behavior of the electron. so basically, we don't have a duality at all, we just have a quantized wave, which we are tricked into thinking of it like a particle by the particles it interacts with. just a crazy, fever induced, idea I had. any thoughts?
