What is the nature of Light Quanta ?
In my opinion this question is similar to other one:
How can the SRT be understood ?

More than 100 years have passed when SRT was created
but the discussions about it are still going on .

I suggest my own opinion about SRT (Light Quanta & Vacuum)
=== .

One of the SRT laws says:
The speed of Light Quanta in the Vacuum is constant
equal to : c=1. No other particles can reach such speed.
If all the other particles cannot reach this seed it means
they are absolutely different particles. Their abilities
are absolutely another. And if they absolutely different,
so we cannot compare them. From our school days
we know that to compare two incommensurable quantities
is not possible.
It is the same as to compare the elephant and the whale.
We can see the elephant in the safari and the whale in the
ocean. But we cannot meet them together in the same
reference frame.
Therefore I say the SRT is theory about Light Quanta.

Once again:
The speed of Light Quanta in the Vacuum is constant
equal to : c=1. In the Vacuum !!!
The conditions of safari created the geometrical form of elephant.
The conditions of ocean created the geometrical form of the whale.
Then we must suppose that the conditions of Vacuum have the
influence on the geometrical form of Light Quanta.

Question: What are the conditions of Vacuum ?
1.
The matter ( and its density) in the Universe is very small.
This small mass cannot roll the Universe into sphere therefore
the Universe must be infinite.
2.
This infinite space is Kingdom of Cold.
Now it is considered that the temperature of this Kingdom
is: T= 2,7K. But this quantity is not constant, it is relative
and decreases, and in the future will reach T= 0K.
and the laws of thermodynamics say: the particles in the
Kingdom of Cold (T= 0K) cannot have volume. It means
they are flat particles. And from all flat geometrical forms
the most symmetrical is circle: c/d= pi = 3,14 ……
3.
According to Quantum Theory the Vacuum is some kind
of energetic space, it means the particles, the Light Quanta
are also some kind of energetic power.

All discussions are tautology without understanding what Vacuum is.

So, in my opinion, the Quantum of Light is some kind of
energetic particle with flat geometrical form of circle.
But if the Quantum of Light always moves only with constant
speed c=1, then, it seems, it is a mad particle. Thinking in such
way it is hard to understand its importance in our life.
But SRT helps us to understand that this view on the Quantum
of Light is wrong. The SRT says: its laws depend on the movement
of the Quantum of Light.
Once again.
The SRT laws (Lorentz transformation ) explain us how the behaviour
( movement ) of the Quantum of Light changes.
The theory says : in the movement
a) the mass and energy of Quantum of Light changes.
b) the geometrical form (circle) of Quantum of Light changes
c) the time of its life changes.
(according to Lorentz transformation )

In AWT vacuum has structure of foam and through foam every isolated wave propagates like less or more dense blob, i.e. wave packet. You can play with this concept by using of mouse on the Java applet herein

By using of special relativity the existence of light quanta can be explained in any way. AWT explains SRT postulates independently to QM postulates.

The problem is, people don't listen explanations of others, because they prefer to think independently under hope, they'll find proper solution first. In such way, even though such explanation is proposed already, people repeating their own ideas like mantra. There is quite thin boundary between creative (i.e. positive) and ignorant (i.e. negative) stance: if you're speaking, you cannot listen and vice-versa.

In general, SRT can be explained without exact knowledge of true nature of vacuum at all. What we know, light is wave of vacuum environment analogous to wave at water surface. Now we can put a question: can we see water surface by using of water wave?
The answer is: no, by using of water wave is impossible to see water surface, because this surface is serving like environment for spreading of water wave instead.

After then another question can be raised: Can we see the motion of water surface by using of surface waves?
The answer is: no, if we cannot see water surface by using of surface waves, then we cannot detect its motion by using of these waves as well. It means, EVERY wave is invariant to (motion/reference frame) of its own environment by its very definition. And this is basically, what the postulate of light speed invariance of special relativity theory is saying. The rest of SRT is just a thin mathematical envelope surrounding this basic concept.

Sorry, SRT doesn't care about Light Quanta at all. On the contrary: SRT is just describing light as a flat wave without any particles at all.

Existence of light quanta follows from particle nature of light environment and its relevant only for light waves, whose wavelengths differ from wavelength of cosmic microwave background. Light waves of shorter wavelengths are propagating through such chaotic field like photons, whereas waves of larger wavelengths are propagating through such field like tachyons, i.e. gravitational waves.

No object can serve both as a subject, both as a mean of observation at single moment, because we would observe it both from inside, both from outside perspective - which is virtually impossible.

Running is not environment for motion, sorry. Your question is not analogy of my question.

2.
SR does not deal with photons.
They pertain to - and initialized - the quantum physics.
Photons are observed by emission and absorption.
What propagates is the other aspect of light - the wave.
Electron waves and field aspects of all particles propagate at C.
/ Georges Metanomski /
3.
Mr. Israel, there is no such thing as quanta of light as it contradicts SR.
The particle wave duality of light fails as this duality of QM works
only for subluminal waves. Photons are not quantum particles
as they violates Uncertainty principle.
/ Dr. Kanda /

Socratus:
Why I say the SRT is theory about Light Quanta.

In 1905 Einstein wrote the paper :
‘ On the Electrodynamics of moving Bodies.’ ( SRT).
And the photon is an electrodynamics body – particle.
So, the particle - quantum of light is part of SRT.

Photon is not body, as it has no rest mass.

No, in the same way, like we cannot see the (motion of) vacuum by using of light waves.

I like this sentence and your thought .
It calls to think:
What is Vacuum ?
What is Photon and light waves ?

In AWT the vacuum is the same stuff, like ordinary matter: dense fractal structure of space-time curvatures, simmilar to nested foam, formed by density fluctuations of hypothetical gas of immense density, so called an Aether.

Light waves are transversal waves of that foam, while gravitational waves are longitudinal waves. Photons are mixture of boths.
