so thinking: where do regular waves come from? Well, if a circle is rotating at a steady rate, it will reach the same spot at the same time, which can ripple outwards if let’s say it was an imperfect circle – -degenerate I think it’s called? i dunno But then I’m thinking, “but circles are fiction (but perfected descriptions of real behaviors)” so what about spheres? Spheres are kinda real but why do they generally rotate in one direction only? Looked it up. Angular momentum. Ok, so if it’s already going that way, it’ll probably keep going that way, just like linear momentum. But what keeps the fixation in the middle part? Like, what makes middle do uniquely middle things? [pause, didn’t get anywhere] So I move on and end up back at electron spin (720 degree rotation instead of 360 degree, which is where 1/2 spin” comes from – … then I see “intrinsic angular momentum” .. and it’s .. ok, then I’m just like,

“Video explaining quantum spin versus classical magnet in the Stern–Gerlach experiment” Quantum spin ? An experiment in 1922 convinced physicists that ANGULAR MOMENTUM is quantized: that is, it’s THIS or THAT but not inbetween. The music is a bop too.
