Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
The researchers are not shining light through crystal — they are transforming light into crystal. As part of an effort to develop exotic materials such as room-temperature superconductors, the researchers have locked together photons, the basic element of light, so that they become fixed in place. “It’s something that we have never seen before”, said Andrew Houck, an associate professor of electrical engineering and one of the researchers. “This is a new behavior for light”.

We see light as something special.
And yet it seems that it is not after all.
Everything is matter.
Matter is perceived energy.
Everything is mind.
Everything is us.
Everything is as it seems.
Everything is blessed…
