From Wikipedia: Wave-particle Duality
The modern double-slit experiment is a demonstration that light and matter can display characteristics of both classically defined waves and particles; moreover, it displays the fundamentally probabilistic nature of quantum mechanical phenomena.
From Wikipedia: Double-slit experiment
A well-known thought experiment predicts that if particle detectors are positioned at the slits, showing through which slit a photon goes, the interference pattern will disappear. This which-way experiment illustrates the complementarity principle that photons can behave as either particles or waves, but cannot be observed as both at the same time.
From Wikipedia: Waves
There are two main types of waves. Mechanical waves propagate through a medium, and the substance of this medium is deformed.
The second main type, electromagnetic waves, do not require a medium. Instead, they consist of periodic oscillations of electrical and magnetic fields originally generated by charged particles, and can therefore travel through a vacuum.
From Wikipedia:Electromagnetic Waves
The electromagnetic waves that compose electromagnetic radiation can be imagined as a self-propagating transverse oscillating wave of electric and magnetic fields.
Re: energy and mass are the same thing

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
I disagree with your stance on energy. Energy has a mass equivalence. You can make matter out of it.
That's quite incorrect for the reasons I mentioned above. You really should read the entire paper since it refects what nearly all relativists hold to be true. I can send it to you if you'd like. But it's quite wrong to assert that you can make matter out of energy. What you're confusing is that there are only changes in forms of matter. Creating matter out of energy would mean creating matter out of nothing and that doesn't happen, ever. Where did you ever get the idea that You can make matter out of it. anyway? Post an example and I'll explain the misconception that you have.
