Light may be a direct result of small violations of relativity. Physicist Alan Kostelecky of Indiana University describes light as "a shimmering of ever-present vectors in empty space" and compares it to waves propagating across a field of grain. This description is markedly different from existing theories of light, in which scientists believe space is without direction and the properties of light are a result of an underlying symmetry of nature.
