dc.description.abstract This paper derives the properties of light from the properties of processing, including its ability to be both a wave and a particle, to detect objects it doesn't touch, to choose a route after it arrives, to take all paths to a destination and to spin in any direction both ways at once. In this model the quantum wave is a processing wave instantiated from an entity class, and quantum collapse is when a class stops all its instances to merge with another. This approach gives insights into entanglement, superposition and the measurement problem, but has the conceptual cost that non-physical quantum states are real. en
