Well I finally got the book and gobbled up about 30 pages on first reading ... can't say I am ecstatic with what I read but that is because of the challenges it poses ... [Dr Little's] questioning of the conventions is important and interesting and even if [he is] not completely right it puts [him] up there with Galileo, Darwin, the longitude man John Harrison and everyone who says no to peer pressure. [ ... ]
I have a few possibly naive questions however...
When we fire subatomic particles, in my understanding, they come from an anode and emerge at various energies depending on the voltage applied. Hence we can have microwaves, x-rays and so on up the energy scale.
When we watch old fashioned CRT TV we are seeing the results of electrons impacting the screen. These 'particles' are guided to the screen by coils at the side.
How does the elementary wave [ ... ] 'guide' them in this case?
Finally, how does the elementary wave 'know' in advance the energy of the emitted particle. That energy is determined by the anode voltage is it not?
