NEOCLASSICAL PHYSICS AND QUANTUM GRAVITY
Imagine that nature emerges from a Euclidean 3D void space populated with immutable oppositely charged Planck spheres, which we call the electrino and the positrino. These are the only carriers of energy, in electromagnetic and kinetic form. They observe classical mechanics and Maxwell’s equations. Nature overlays Euclidean space (Map 1) with a lightly interacting Riemannian spacetime æther (Map 2). 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 is compatible with GR, QM, and ΛCDM observations, while providing a superior narrative that explains nature and the universe.
For 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 basics see: Idealized Neoclassical Model and the NPQG Glosssary.
Let’s talk about the physical implementation of a photon in 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 and the characteristics that arise. I’ll show that GR-QM era physics does not understand the physical implementation of a photon, nor the real implementation of wavelength and frequency.
In 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 a photon is a composite of both particles and waves at all times. The composite particle is six electrinos and six positrinos forming an empty shell which we can imagine as a sphere that the electrinos and positrinos traverse. Those 12 particles are orbiting around the surface of that imaginary spherical shell. The wave equation of the path that those 12 particles follow is what implements what GR-QM era physics calls an electromagnetic wave. It is a wave that is self contained in the photon. The distance that the particle travels in one full transit of the wave equation is what we call wavelength. The frequency is one divided by the time for that full transit. Furthermore, the photon has a mass, albeit very small, and it is constantly interacting with particles of spacetime æther in the vicinity of its travels, producing a pilot wave.
Let’s evaluate Fermat’s principle in the context of 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚.
“Fermat’s principle, also known as the principle of least time, is the link between ray optics and wave optics. Fermat’s principle states that the path taken by a ray between two given points is the path that can be traversed in the least time.
Fermat’s principle was initially controversial because it seemed to ascribe knowledge and intent to nature. Not until the 19th century was it understood that nature’s ability to test alternative paths is merely a fundamental property of waves. If points A and B are given, a wavefront expanding from A sweeps all possible ray paths radiating from A, whether they pass through B or not. If the wavefront reaches point B, it sweeps not only the ray path(s) from A to B, but also an infinitude of nearby paths with the same endpoints. Fermat’s principle describes any ray that happens to reach point B; there is no implication that the ray “knew” the shortest path or “intended” to take that path.”Wikipedia
The term ‘wave’ in the description of Fermat’s principle is technically incorrect according to 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚. Fermat is using the term ‘wave’ for a large collection of photons emitting continuously in all directions from a source, with each photon having the same or similar energy from the reaction that produced it. To a GR-QM era observer, the collection of photons looks like an electromagnetic wave similar to what would result from dropping a pebble in a still pond. Yet, as mentioned above, each photon implements its own wave by the circulation of the electrinos and positrinos in the wave equation of the photon shell.
Let’s use 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 to examine a case where path A-P is in spacetime æther and path P-B is in water. Any photon particle that originates at point A in spacetime æther, passes through point P and refracts at the water’s surface and ends up at point B follows a path A-P-B. There is no other point P2 that could have refracted to B. Furthermore, if you imagine a different point P2 and calculate the sum of a photon travel time A-P2, and then a different photon travel time P2-B that sum would be longer than the time it took for the single photon in the first cast to travel A-P-B. I suspect that it was this mathematical observation that led Fermat to presume that the mathematical possibilities matched nature, especially considering the contemporary understanding of light as a wave.
I was thinking about 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚 photons, which are both a particle and a wave, moving through space and all of a sudden it hit me! Of course! The electromagnetic waves that a photon gives off are caused by the electrino/positrino particle-wave function of the photon. Doh! It is so obvious!
Science understands a lot about particle-waves and fields. We may be able to transform that information so as to deduce the configuration and wave function for each particle type as well as its reactions. We know about orthogonal electric and magnetic fields. That’s a leap of imagination, but it is exciting nevertheless. I hope it pans out with further development of 𝗡𝗣𝗤𝗚. Here are some ideas on how to pursue this conception.
- Explore these insights for all types of particle-waves.
- We know that the electric and magnetic fields are perpendicular and, we know Maxwell’s equations, and the frequency vs. wavelength equation.
- What can polarization inform? It may help explain interactions that cause changes in polarization
- What is the simplest configuration and geometry of a shell?
- What is the configuration of a photon?
- How does the electric field oscillate in a sine wave? The charge distribution must end up all on one side or most on one side at the peak, and then it must continue its wave function until the charge distribution reverses.
- How does the magnetic field oscillate in a sine wave?
- We’ll need to correct our integrals to reflect the quantum nature of particles. For example, in Maxwell’s equations.
- It seems like for a photon to produce electromagnetic waves, the motion of each electrino and positrino would be continuous and not a cloud probability like QM. How can this be reconciled? Is this leading to a situation where these 12 particles (in a 6/6 configuration) are swarming around in a cloud? Is that what science has been observing?
- How does this knowledge map to configurations of the other particles of the standard model?
- How does phase map to particle-wave configuraton and function?
- How are frequency and wavelength implemented via the particle-wave function? Certainly we know this will relate to the size of the photon.
- This may be straightforward. It’s like having an image of the particle path.
- Does this have any relation to how weak force and strong force are implemented?
- As the photon size gets smaller with energy the shell still produces the orthogonal electromagnetic field. Little tiny fast waves are at the highest temperatures prior to decay or phase change.
- What exactly determines the permittivity and permeability of any medium? Is it related to the shell temperature of spacetime? What about the shell temperatures of other matter-energy? Well we know that it will already be continuously mirrored in spacetime æther. So, yes, it would be logical that permittivity and permeability are related to the temperature of the spacetime æther.
- How shall this be approached mathematically? Analytically or via computer simulation? Probably both. I would imagine closed form solutions are possible for straightforward situations like constant temperature spacetime æther. The solution likely has various quantized harmonics, some imaginary numbers to rotate the waves polarization, Maxwell’s equations, and classical mechanics.
This post has been an introduction to how NPQG solves the age old wave-particle duality issue. Which is it? Wave? Particle? QM says wave. GR takes no stance. The answer is BOTH. The immutable Planck radius electrino and positrino particles trace out wave equations in particle shells and generate electromagnetic fields.
