Neutrino Oscillation Musings

NEOCLASSICAL PHYSICS AND QUANTUM GRAVITY
Imagine that nature emerges from ample pairs of immutable Planck radius spherical particles, the electrino and the positrino, which are equal yet oppositely charged. These are the only carriers of energy, in electromagnetic and kinetic form. The are located in an infinite 3D Euclidean space (non curvy) and observe classical mechanics and Maxwell’s equations. π—‘π—£π—€π—š explores this recipe for nature and how it emerges as a narrative and theory that is compatible with GR and QM, yet far superior in ability to explain the universe and resolve open problems.
For π—‘π—£π—€π—š basics see: Idealized Neoclassical Model and the NPQG Glossary.

Neutrinos are known to oscillate between flavors (i.e., electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino), but the mechanism is not understood in quantum mechanics. Perhaps π—‘π—£π—€π—š can lead to an explanation by showing how the energy, electrinos, and positrinos can behave in a loose coupling of dipoles that possibly interacts with the superfluid gas of spacetime. First, let’s examine oscillation probabilities for a three neutrino system.

In NPQG, we hypothesize that neutrinos are implemented as a payload only particle of loosely coupled electrino/positrino dipoles. The model configurations are 3Ξ΅βŠ–/3Ξ΅βŠ• electron neutrino, 2Ξ΅βŠ–/2Ξ΅βŠ• muon neutrino, and 1Ξ΅βŠ–/1Ξ΅βŠ• tau neutrino. Superfluid gas is modeled as being composed of neutral shell particles and is dominated by low energy shells. Neutrino oscillation could be explained as neutrinos flying in formation and exchanging energy and epsilon pairs.

Consider the probability curves in the neutrino oscillation charts. The three probabilities add to one. We can see that the energy of the neutrino is related to the speed of the oscillation. Perhaps we can consider the probability as a proxy for the amount of energy carried by each of the particles in superposition. Wikipedia says, “The basic physics behind neutrino oscillation can be found in any system of coupled harmonic oscillators.” This is fascinating, because π—‘π—£π—€π—š electrino/positrino dipoles carry harmonic waves, and are harmonic oscillators.

How would we describe the physics of a group of electrino/positrino dipoles? First, within each dipole the electrino and positrino attract each other. As each particle orbits the other, it is chasing the ephemeral position of where their partner was in the past when it emitted the electric field that is currently arriving after having propagated at the local speed of electromagnetic fields, also called the local speed of light, c.

We might explain neutrinos as an attracted group of dipoles. They drift apart and back in. There would be a regular cyclic trade of different energy forms for this amorphous group. The electron neutrino is three dipoles in a cluster. If you name the dipoles abc, you can imagine various clusters forming in a loose coupling: abc, ab + c, ac + b, a + bc, a + b + c. So this makes perfect logical sense. The muon neutrino is two dipoles in a loose cluster. The muon neutrino could oscillate such that it regularly splits into two separate dipoles and appears as two tau neutrinos and then those dipoles reverse course and approach each other again, not appearing as a muon neutrino. The tau neutrino is one dipole and isn’t stable in low temperature surroundings such as spacetime gas in free space or earthbound conditions. As we can see from the charts above our model doesn’t quite explain how a muon neutrino could appear as an electron neutrino or how a tau neutrino could appear as a muon neutrino or an electron neutrino.

Is neutrino oscillation related to the mass-energy exchange flux with spacetime gas, i.e., the gravity of the neutrino? Mass-energy flux means a particle exchanges a gravitational energy wave with the superfluid spacetime gas. Does a moving neutrino exchange energy between it’s constituent electrino/positrino pairs as well?

As of this writing, there are more questions than answers, but directionally the π—‘π—£π—€π—š model seems to lend itself to a neutrino oscillation mechanism.

PREDICTIONS AND HYPOTHESIS

  • An electron neutrino can briefly split into lower energy muon neutrino and a lower energy tau neutrino OR possibly into three lower energy tau neutrinos
  • A muon neutrino can briefly split into two lower energy tau neutrinos
  • Does the periodicity of neutrino oscillation relate to the gravitational waves exchanged by the neutrinos?

p.s. If an electrino and positrino were to collide, would they stick together? No, because energy must be conserved, and therefore in cases where they do collide they could transfer momentum, and depart with a change in velocity.
