Is it possible that zero could have negative charge, positive charge,

Zero is the cardinality of the empty set. It's not part of the physical
Which reminds me, why is it that the photon doesn't have an
anti-particle other than itself? It makes no sense to me that Bosons
for the most part don't have antimatter equivalents.
They all have anti-particles. It's just that for the uncharged ones may
be their own anti-particle.
I would think that the antiparticle of a photon has got to be magnetic
Photons don't carry charge. If they did they'd interact with other
photons and we wouldn't be able to see anything.
If the word wasn't taken already, I would say that the antiparticle of
a photon is a graviton
The graviton (if it exists) is a spin 2 particle.
or a magnetron, which to me, gravitation and magnetism are
manifestations of the same force, just different reactions to
Andre Sakharov wrote a famous paper that suggests gravity is an emergent
curvature of spacetime from the vacuum fluctuations of quantum fields,
including the EM field
The idea is popular again because black hole thermodynamics implies
gravity could be an entropic force.
And at the risk of sounding (even more) crazy, I would say that the
photon and its anti-particle are entangled at the essential connection
point that bridges between matter and that hidden world. Something
that makes planets levitate as a magnet levitates a rotating magnet,
that carries light, that in every closed system creates an attracting
and repulsive force. It is that something that tips over when it
collects enough mass and makes it collapse. Not the Higgs.
I'm sure there's someone out there who has thought of this and has the
math to back it up!!
Somebody may have thought of it, but nobody's been able to back it up.
My brother rose thru his gravity, while contrariwise I sank due
to my levity.
