The characteristic of the field is “continual change”, which manifests itself in the form of endless CYCLES. Each cycle is an oscillation between electric and magnetic states. This oscillation is the source of quantization of **ENERGY**. Energy is the active substance that appears in all interactions and builds all phenomena including matter.

#### Field consists of cycles of ENERGY.

Each cycle has the same amount of energy. A cycle thus represents the ultimate unit of energy. The quantitative value of this unit is the Planck’s constant ‘**h****’**, which is a universal constant.

#### A CYCLE represents a unit of energy.

The rate of recurrence of cycles is called FREQUENCY. As frequency increases, there are more cycles in a measured interval. So the density of cycles increases with frequency. Energy becomes more focused and substantial with increase in frequency. This can be shown by the relationship

#### E = hf,

where **E** is energy, **f** is frequency, and **h** is the Planck’s constant.

Energy builds up with cycles**. **These cycles organize themselves in different phenomena. Energy can be converted from one type of phenomenon to another. Such a conversion seems to conserve the cycles of energy. Thus comes about the law of Conservation of Energy.

**Energy appears to conserve itself as the total number of cycles in the universe.**
