Re: What is the relationship between "particle" and "field"?
※→ et al,

(OPINION - NOT AN ANSWER) Skip this post if you are short of time; or drop to the very last short paragrah.

I do not think that scientist (experimental or theoretical) has an understanding of what a "field" might be. Do they understand what a particle is? YES [the least significant bit (LSB)]. But they have little in the way of an explanation of what a "field" is.

They talk (quite frequently) about the Wave-Particle Duality, frequency (the reciprocal of "time"), quantum field theory (QFT), E-Fields and H-Fields [electromagnetic (EMF)]; but cannot explain the simplest of results in a fourth grade science experiment. I know that we all understand how to detect and exploit "fields" (as Faraday and Maxwell) demonstrated to us. but have we ever explained what it is; what reaches out and reshapes the physical reality.

We think we understand that something reaches-out and reorganizes the iron filings (top image) into an organized pattern along magnetic lines of flux; but we do not know what a flux line is. We know that something reaches-out and "pulls" (what force pulls?) the iron filings up and off the paper and arranges them into a unique formation (bottom image) at the poles. We even hypothesize about this mysterious forces that pulls atoms into a polar alignment in ferrous materials. We even use this mysterious property as a research tool to accelerate particles for collision (like in the LHC).

BUT, they do not know what reaches-out and picks up iron fielding.

But then a photon of light has a frequency. The reciprocal of the frequency is time. What is the relationship between space-time (the fabric of space) and the energy in the electromagnetic spectrum?

Image

Each frequency, depicted in the image above, has a certain amount of energy associated with it; this we know. The higher the frequency, the greater the energy required to sustain that frequency. But what we seldom depict is the relationship between these light waves and the their respective frequency in terms of magnetic fields.
Image

Each single beam of light enters the prism and then its energy is divided into separate and distinct waves. How is that distribution made since each color has an increasing amount of energy required from IR → UV? We don't know. We can measure the frequency and intensity of light. but not the association between the individual separate bands of light - which combined makeup the original white light before it entered the prism.

There are a zillion question that have gone unanswered; beyond our comprehension.

The answer to Dark Energy and Dark Matter (related) and the nature of light, suggests that no matter where you are in the universe, if you can detect light (a small example extracted from the EM spectrum) , then there is energy (an E-Field and an H-Field).

(∑)

All of these things (relationship between "particle" and "field") are related (from the fabric of space to the lowest level of energy). A packet (or quantum) of light that vibrates at a specific frequency (giving it its distinctive color) is largely an unknown quantity. It brings with it these associated fields. We think we know that the two fields (E and H) are rotationally offset by 90º. We are not sure whether the rotational offset may be varied, and what effect that would have on the overall energy level. (Yet, just another set of question that we do not have the answer.) But we know that Frequency and Time are reciprocals (1/f = T | 1/t = F). All particles (above absolute zero) vibrate at some frequency. Frequency of a particle implies energy, implies an E and H Field.

Most Respectfully,
R

Here is another one of those crazy fields-only guys. Right in the abstract of the paper, he lays down this doozie :

This article reviews several phenomena showing that particles are incompatible with quantum field theories.
