NEOCLASSICAL PHYSICS AND QUANTUM GRAVITY
Imagine that nature is emergent from pairs of Planck scale fundamental particles, the electrino and the positrino, which are equal yet oppositely charged. These are the only carriers of energy, in electromagnetic and kinetic form. Now add in an infinite 3D Euclidean space (non curvy) and Maxwell’s equations. 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 explores this recipe for nature and how it emerges as a narrative that is compatible with GR and QM, yet far superior in ability to explain the universe and resolve open problems. For 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 basics see: Idealized Neoclassical Model and the NPQG Glossary.
I understand that quite a few physicists long for a magnetic monopole, although I really do not understand why. What are magnetic monopoles?
In particle physics, a magnetic monopole is a hypothetical elementary particle that is an isolated magnet with only one magnetic pole (a north pole without a south pole or vice versa). A magnetic monopole would have a net “magnetic charge”. Modern interest in the concept stems from particle theories, notably the grand unified and superstring theories, which predict their existence.Wikipedia
There is no such thing as a magnetic monopole in NPQG theory. NPQG postulates the universe as comprised of two energy carrying charged particles, the electrino and positrino. These two particles obey Maxwell’s equations, but they only produce a magnetic field if they are moving. Furthermore even if a single electrino or a single positrino is moving, it would produce a magnetic field that would have a north and south pole.
So, sorry, not sorry, to burst anyone’s bubble, but there is no such thing as a magnetic monopole.
