    I am looking for authors who have explored the idea that light may be still or static. Does anybody know of research in that direction, whether proven wrong or not?

    Thank you!

    Kep in mind electromagnetic waves, light, "connect" electrons with nuclei..so if light is stationary there could be no atoms formed..hence nothing we see around us...all would be energy.....and since the strong/weak/and electromagnetic forces have been unified, they'd be kaput as well I think..
