Plank's constant h (or better h/2[]) is reinterpreted as a quantum of angular momentum instead of a quantum of action. The photon with its quantum of angular momentum [] is shown to be the mediator of low energy quantum physics. Action is identified as angular momentum and the principle of least action is construed to be the conservation of angular momentum.*
