I don't know if this question falls within your experience ... if it does ... if a lucid answer to this question is possible ... but here's the question.
Numerous purely mathematical theories are often discussed in semi-technical presentations and the statement is made "and out of this calculation came an entity that is a graviton"; or neutrino, or whatever.
No one ever takes the time to explain how it is that one can look at a mathematical statement and see "all" of the properties of a graviton or any other entity.
Do you have a reference to an answer that doesn't resort to quaternion math or similar but, rather, is in semi-technical lay terms.
