But Dr. Albert Frankenstein brings the dead Sir Isaac back to life with electricity!
But it just didn’t work. With the notion of particles, you can get tantalizingly close to Planck’s formulas for radiation, but you would’nt be completely correct.
And Planck’s formula has proved unassailable due to the experimental results.
Exactly! That’s why I had to rethink it, especially as it was impossible to develop a full-blown theory from the assumption of light particles. Lorentz’s electrodynamics was unbeatable, as monstrous as it seemed to me with its contraction of moving bodies.
