QCD Made Simple.
Left: QCD Red-Green quark-gluon vertex.
A green-anti-red gluon transmutes a red quark into a green quark.
Right: QCD Red-Green-Green charged gluon vertex.
A vertex of three gluons: green-anti-green, green-anti-red, and
In QCD Red, Blue, and Green (arbitrarily) represent
three 'kinds of charge.'
Those two vertices show QCD inheritance of one generation
older Feynman's much more classical QED notions.
To roughly compare QCD to Quantonics, quarks are matter
(material, fermionic), while gluons are more akin quantonic included-middle
Students of Quantonics should note that transmutation

one kind of charge.
In Quantonics we view our above diagram classically
as a "Feynman diagram."
Straight line up arrow is classically a 'particle.'
Up squiggle is some classically 'virtual particle,'
in QED it is usually a photon.
Straight line down arrow is classically an 'anti particle.'
Junction of three is referred as 'vertex.'
In Quantonics said 'vertex' is a quantum real
EIMA. It is a tap
into and a pathway through QVF.
