I was trying to iron out sources for some thoughts that have been floating around in my head about matter being frozen light. On Google, I am able to find a few posts about physicists claiming that all matter is frozen or slowly moving light.
I think I remember Andrew talking about this a while ago and comparing it to some of the beliefs in Buddhism but I cannot find anything about the two online. I’m trying to find what he may have been discussing in Buddhism that is linked to this idea.
Maybe he never mentioned it, but I wanted to ask before leaving this theory to scientists alone. I thought I remembered him discussing this at one point or another.
This is the best I could extract from AI about this topic:
Just as light can be understood as a form of energy or vibration, matter in Buddhist philosophy is seen as a manifestation of energy or subtle elements. This understanding is closely related to the concept of emptiness, which teaches that all phenomena lack inherent or independent existence. Matter, in this view, can be seen as a relatively solid or frozen form of energy or light.
