Planck and the Conservation of Energy
According to Planck an electron in a constant orbit cannot produce thermal radiation. He concluded, from the law of energy conservation, that the electron must lose energy, and thereby also stability. However, we must regard the fact that two electromagnetic waves in, opposite phase, can produce zero radiation. This fact is also in conflict to the conservation law for energy. This conflict can only be solved if we assume no energy in light, and in other electromagnetic waves. Therefore, light in itself cannot contain real forces. Instead we must conclude that the orbiting electron produces a potential force, that is not real if it is not detected by another electron.
We must regard this potential force as a kind of disturbance in the ether that has capacity to act on a charge if the charge is present. If we could use a half electron as a detector, the force would be reduced by half, and no electron at all would mean no force at all. These facts imply that the electron does not provide the energy to the other electron.
We can now conclude that the bound electron does not lose energy by radiating. Instead, the energy needed must be provided by the ether. Therefore, electromagnetic radiation, like light, is without energy. Energy relations are not relevant for transport of light. This is reasonable, since our experiences of light is limited to the behavior of electrons during emission and absorption of light. We have no direct experiences from transmission of light, since light is not visible.
A possible way to explain this mystique is to assume that radiation is represented by polarity of ether particles. Polarity demands energy for changes, but not for maintaining constancy. Therefore, it is possible that electromagnetic radiation, like light, does not have to transport energy. Instead light can have a capacity to link energy between ether and matter.
Planck invented quantum jumping as an act of despair, and perhaps this act was not needed. Instead light can be information without energy.
