when talking about base state and excited state in quantum theory, it has been said that " the easier the flipping back and forth between the two states, the higher the coefficient A and thus higher the energy separation between the two states". i find this paradoxical.(i thought easier the flipping, lower the energy required to make the transition from one state to the other). I am referring this information from volume 3 of "Feynmann lectures of physics " in the chapter" other two state systems " from the paragaph " the benzene molecule ". Could you please explain this.(It looks paradoxical to me. Maybe i haven't understood it correctly!). Thank you.
