Yo, Bob,
Lots of pretty pictures, but I don't know how far you'll get
with your commentaries and redefinition accompanying your
visuals. Things like these in
are a weee bit too unconventional, to say the least:
> Atoms are crystalline assemblies of identical regular octahedra.
> Light is particulate only.
> The photons are atoms or groups of atoms.
> The red shift is caused by the polar attraction between like photons
I suggest you do some editing and rewriting.
