QED All-Path is Challenged
QED all-path method for mirror reflection claims by adding all the amplitude vectors for all the probable paths, it finds the optic path naturally, and independently. This is absolutely a false claim!
In order QED all-path method claim to be valid, QED all-path is supposed to reach to the Optic Path conclusion by its own method independently, and absolutely without any lead from the Optic Path. In the following short passage I am going to expose the flaw within QED's deceptive argument.
The photon source at point S sends a single photon to the surface of the mirror. This photon has specific direction and specific angle of incident, and the Optic Path defines the path of the reflected photon. Let's assume the reflected photon gets detected by a detector at the target point T1. Since QED all-path method includes all the incoming paths into its configurations, then it ignores the specificity of the direction of the incoming photon. QED all-path does not identify the receiving detector at the target point T1 by its own natural and random method. If I move the receiving detector one inch from the target point T1, side way, to the target point T2, QED all-path method still produces an optic path for the target point T2. In fact if I move the detector to different target points of T3, T4, T5, . . . , T10,000, each of these target points produces its own VALID optic path, and QED all-path can NOT differentiate between any of these target points. QED all-path is incapable to identify which of these 10,000 target points actually receives the reflected photon. This is where QED all-path cheats, QED conveniently implements the correct detector at the target point T1 into its methods, and because of this cheating, it naturally ends up with the correct result! QED all-path is supposed to figure out the reflected path by its own method independently, and not by cheating.
Let me present another argument how the correct target point from the Optic Law enters into QED methods. For the photon in mirror reflection, both the wave function method and the all-path configuration method, they both require that the target point to be provided. This fact simply indicates that none of these methods discovers or identifies any target point (path), but rather they only examine the details of the path for the PROVIDED target point. And the correct target point is PROVIDED by the Optic Law, that it is conveniently implanted into QED methods.
The ramification of this cheating is huge, the energized electron at the surface of the mirror emits its photon at the specific direction that it is defined by the Optic Path, this emission with specified direction rejects QED's randomness to its core. From the perspective of photon content, mirror image reflection is an extremely orderly phenomenon, that it humorously brushes off our prized achievement of QED probabilistic theory.
