Another example of the six blind men whom are asked to describe an elephant.
========================

Until today we don't know what electron is.
We don't know why the electron has six ( 6 ) formulas
E=h*f and e^2=ah*c ,
+E=Mc^2 and* -E=Mc^2 ,
E=-me^4/2h^2= -13,6eV and E= ∞

And we don't know way an electron obeys five (5) Laws :
a) The Law of conservation and transformation energy/ mass
b) The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle / Law
c) The Pauli Exclusion Principle/ Law
d) Dirac - Fermi statistic
e) Maxwell - Lorentz EM theory.

We don't know: what are interactions between these formulas and laws.

And assuming all these maths formulas and laws are correct
and they depend only on the discipline physicists are working on
(electrostatics, electricity, magnetism, plasma physics, relativity,
laser physics, superconductivity . . . etc) then it is possible that
an electron can have more than only six formulas and five laws.

As somebody wrote: ''We know electron by what it does, not by what it is''
================================.

Robert A. Millikan, in his Nobel speech ( 1923) said,
that he knew nothing about “ last essence of electron”
#
Feynman wrote about electron :
“ It is important to realize that in physics today,
we have no knowledge of what energy is.
We do not have a picture that energy comes in little
blobs of a definite amount. “
===============

Therefore the situation with an electron is similar to an old Indian story:
''what is an elephant ?''
One blind man touched the elephant’s foot and said elephant is like a column
Other blind man touched the elephant’s tail and said elephant looks like a snake
The third one touched the elephant’s stomach and said elephant is like a ball
The . . . . . . .. . .
=============.
The electron was '' touched'' in different experiments from different sides
but it seems that our knowledge of an electron is similar to the blind – knowledge
of elephant from this old Indian proverb.
