  1. Hi Marc. I am very glad that you are back again.👋 The experiments that you mention are not very simple, whereas the experiment with the convex lens is the simplest possible. An experiment should be kept as simple as possible if man wants to come to the truth. Complicated experiments are not of much use because in such an experiment there are lots of factors in play, so that one cannot know how each factor contributes to the phenomenon. Descartes has already pointed out four hundred years ago that the problems (or experiments) should be divided in their simplest parts. But the

If we look at the flame of a candle or a cigarette lighter in a dimly lit room, the flame is blue-violet in the lower part and yellow-orange in the upper part. If the part of the wick running over the wax is very short, then the flame is very small and it appears only blue. The flame of a gas stove is also blue, but as soon as we increase the gas supply, yellow tongues appear in the upper part of the flame. The smoke of a cigarette, whose smoke columns are not very

  3. I like what you are doing, great. Now I need to digest it. The illustrations that look like a target, are similar to the Newton's Rings. Which seem exactly like the famous "interference Patterns" of the Michelson and Morley Interferometer. I'm not convinced we are seeing two beams of light "interfering" with itself in the Interferometer. I'm not convinced that Light is actually a wave at all, but its certainly not a Photon Particle. Sure you can SIMULATE light acting like a wave, by sending out pulses at a high frequency, but maybe you can also send out a single continuous
