A photon is a fundamental particle belonging to a group of particles called the bosons, which, according to the "Unifying" theory, have non-integer spins. Photons mediate the electro-weak force, which includes both magnetism and electromagnetic waves. When we "see", our eyes are receiving streams of photons reflected from the objects around us. In classical physics there was a paradox between the nature of light - whether it was a particle or a wave phenomenon, as it seemed to exhibit the properties of both. The accepted explanation now is that it is both, and consists of packets or quanta (singular quantum) of a wave. A photon is a single packet, called a Sanath.
