A scientist might counter, matter is made of particles that are localized in one place at one time. Experiments with individual things shot at a beam splitter show detection at one sensor or the other, but not both at the same time. Therefore, matter and light are made of discrete bits of stuff.
Wait! All minuscule bits of matter can also show a diffraction pattern as though they were interwoven with their surroundings, a wave of some kind. Scientists can calculate the momentum of an electron under certain conditions. In other experiments they can calculate its wavelength.
The skeptic responds: quantum mathematics predicts the probability of finding a particle at some point. Therefore, the wave patterns are just the probability of finding a particle at some point.
Wait! Despite decades of high energy experiments, scientists have not detected a scalar “particle,” one that cannot be further divided into light-like events. When scientists smash protons or electrons, various forms of light stream out. In some experiments, colliding energetic beams of light can produce electrons. Quantum Bell experiments are evidence that matter is relational, neither particle-like nor wavelike. Experimenters can send identical electrons off in different directions. When they preform some operation on one electron that affects its “spin,” this statistically affects the “spin” of its distant twin. Non local connections are evidence that matter is a relation with light, as one would expect from the text of Genesis.
We observe relational things everywhere in nature that display dual natures and non locality. We cannot measure the relations. We can only catalog them with observations and statistics. A brazil nut tree needs an insect strong enough to lift the hood of its flower and a tongue long enough to reach the nectar. Female orchid bees and the brazil nut flower each have a physiology that works, providing food for the bee and pollination for the flower. The male orchid bee depends on forest orchids in his courtship. Without orchids, orchid bees could not pollinate the brazil nut flower. Without the strong teeth of the Agouti rodent, the brazil nuts could not be extracted from their rock-hard capsule to germinate. Complex non local relations connect many life forms. In a similar manner, holistic atoms are evidence that matter is a relation with light. Light reveals the truth because everything in the physical universe really is light.
How does light confound errors and reveal truth? The Bible states knowledge is available to all in the plural heavens (shamayim) and in the spreading place (raqiya) - Psalm 19. The only history that we observe as it happened long ago is galactic history.
1. We observe that all ancient galaxies, which we see as they existed long ago, shine at tiny fractions of the light frequencies of modern atoms. We also observe that many ancient galaxies were compact and naked, without starry appendages. At closer ranges, we observe strings of equally spaced globs around many primordial cores. Evidently galaxies intrinsically grew into local growth spirals as the properties of matter changed relationally. The Bible states that the creation is enslaved to change that is orderly, together, yet degenerative: Romans 8:19 - 22.
2. We observe point sources in many local galaxies with bidirectional jets moving outwards as matter takes up more volume, spreading outward. We find rivers of hydrogen connecting the Magellanic galaxies to the Milky Way. Evidently they were ejected from formless matter at in the core of our galaxy. Atomic clocks, the space matter takes up and countless star streams accelerated outwards, changing relationally, throughout cosmic history as billions of galaxies intrinsically grew into huge growth spirals. All parts of the light spectrum support biblical creation and biblical cosmic history.
3. We also observe that matter increases in volume locally. Three times the Bible states that the earth spreads out in unbroken continuity. The continents only fit together on a tiny globe, without major seas. A global expansion seam passes through every sea and the ocean floors are younger than the continents. The theory of subduction is clearly false, since the subduction zones have layered, undisturbed sediments. Evidently the Earth has continued to grow in size, as formless matter continues to take form as a relation with light. The finishing of the plural heavens and the earth is are incomplete actions in the Hebrew text of the creation account.
4. Eta Carinae is an example of how matter continues to take form, spreading out, as a relation with light. The biblical creator continues to place the Sun, Moon and stars in the spreading place, raqiya, according to Genesis. He spreads out the plural heavens and calls the stars to come out in unbroken continuity, yet none go missing, according to Isaiah. He spreads dense things into clouds in the sky (Job 37:18). From 1837 to 1858, Eta Carinae brightened until it became the second brightest star in our sky. We observe huge bidirectional lobes emerging from the star. Astronomers can use reflections of star eruptions to measure their distance, using the duration of modern years as a yard stick. The reflections from one of the past Eta Carinae events are brightening surrounding clouds in the nebula. Astronomers explain that the reflection spectra is too cold to fit their theories that the star explodes by attracting dust from a companion. The picture from NASA shows this reflection brightening.
The Bible predicted that in the last days mockers will obfuscate the age (the history) of the plural heavens with their idea that all things remain the same (2 Peter 3:3 - 6). Western science was founded upon that idea: that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging relationally. Scientific definitions, measuring units and mathematical methods were contrived with the notion that ancient atoms were identical with modern ones. Scientists have filled the universe with invisible matter and vacuums that change the frequencies of passing light to protect their assumption that atoms are immutable and dither with perpetual motion. How great will be the triumph of the word of God over Western science.
