My takeaway, caveat I'm not a physicist, this is a bit like the concept of 'wavicles' in quantum physics. So fields and particles equals fieldacles or partifields, I don't know, just saying.
Still, as some one who is interested in how science advances, it's just plain fascinating to see how theories evolve through the process of the 'scientific method.' Nothing is proven, it's only not disproven. A way of thinking that most people seem to have a hard time getting their heads around.
Only natural, as it's contrary to our normal way of thinking and how we take advantage of heuristics to save energy: from an evolutionary, Darwinian perspective thinking a lot is not maximally effective of making the best of minimal resources.
Anyway, enough bloviating.
