Creating Matter from Pure Light

In physics news, Scientists Create Matter From Pure Light, Proving the Breit-Wheeler Effect. The Breit-Wheeler effect, postulated as early as 1934, describes the conversion of light into matter. With the theory physicists Gregory Breit and John Wheeler were able to prove that when two high-energy photons collide, a positron and an electron arise, i.e. matter […]

Engaging the Particle Physics Reddit

I made a post on reddit despite my trepidation. Mind you, this was in r/ParticlePhysics. Well the comments became quite interesting including yet another ambassador of physics trying to shoo me away. You can look up the reddit post for the comment string if it is still there, but here is some of the thread. […]

Dear Particle Data Group

I sent this note to the PDG groups email address. It is actually monitored and they have responded to me in the past, for example when I asked if they would be producing a service level API interface. Well, it occurred to me that it is about time they start preparing for the point charge […]

New Ideas on Galaxy Dynamics

I was watching the video from Domain of Science which has an illustration that resulted in me pausing in dreamland for half an hour. Now I feel like brainstorming on galaxy dynamics. So here we go. I’ve written quite a lot about new ways to think about supermassive black holes and their cores and jets. […]

Rosetta Stone

This is a rambling post where I cover many ideas. Enjoy! I met Barry Barish in 2019-2020-ish after a talk he gave at UC Riverside on LIGO, when I approached to ask a question. Barry had an aide with him and you could tell they both stiffened up at the thought I might have an […]

Mass

What is mass? Did you know that physicists do not have a good answer? Did you know that physicists do not know if mass is fundamental or emergent? That they cannot calculate the mass of a particle? The field of physics has been stuck on these and other concepts for quite a long time. It […]

The Immutable Point Charge Architecture is Self-Tuning

A number of insights started flowing while watching this lecture by Dr. Peter Onyisi published by Aspen Physics on July 30, 2021. At the 23:10 mark, Dr. Onyisi begins to talk about neutron decay. I paused the video and started thinking, imagining, and visualizing how and why a free neutron might ‘decay’ in a short […]

Dismiss The Physicists

Yes, that is a provocative title, and it is actually the right thing to say. The “knowledge license” of prior era physicists has an expiration date that is fast approaching. It’s already long expired in my frame of reference! Many physicists will need to re-invent themselves for the point charge era. Fortunately it will be […]

Nature is Continuous and Discrete

I was listening to a 2019 podcast interview of Steven Weinberg from “The Universe Speaks in Numbers” podcast. The discussion delves into one of my favourite topics — where is nature continuous vs. discrete? The answer is that it depends on the concept. Structures may contain a mix of continuous and discrete behaviours. Steven says… […]

Mass Denial in the Physics Community

Physicists know that photons exchange energy in quanta. They know the relationship of frequency and wavelength. And they know that matter has a DeBroglie frequency and similar mathematical formulas. So why haven’t they realized that the implementation of these mechanisms is incredibly precise? Down to the quanta. This means that the structure of nature is […]

cd ~/career rm -rf *

The title of this post derives from Dr. Stacy McGaugh’s tweet and mimics the commands to access your storage for all files pertaining to your career and accumulated work and remove everything with no possibility of recovery. I know I just told a lot of y’all that you might as well cd ~/career rm -r […]

Physicists, Press Rewind!

One of my astute readers commented that they expected a response from me regarding Anton’s recent video. I really appreciated that comment because it demonstrates that there is at least one person who understands how I think about the universe and can predict that I would be excited about Anton’s video. And right they are! […]

What Really Causes the CMB?

I wrote this comment on a post by Dr. Stacy McGaugh’s at his Trition Station blog. In re: <commenter’s> prediction “that the background radiation will eventually resolve to be the light of ever further sources, shifted off the visible spectrum” This is why the JWST is incredibly exciting to me. As I understand it, the […]

Despondency at Triton Station

This post is a response to Dr. Stacy McGaugh’s post Despondency. Well, I hope I can meet the high bar that Dr. McGaugh has set for acceptable comments. Seriously. My first logical argument to Stacy and the readers/commenters is that the scientific method has failed you. The scientific method has not provided a means for […]

New Physics in Pictures

I’ve been making new (and remaking old) illustrations to describe Neoclassical Physics and Quantum Gravity in a visual form that may help people understand the point charge architecture of nature. I’ll add more illustrations here and occasionally republish this post for visibility. Enjoy! J Mark Morris : San Diego : California, Owensboro : Kentucky, Boston […]

Bickering with a Guardian of Physics

I proposed the following premise on the PBS Space Time discord #philosophy channel : Let’s brainstorm the impact on philosophy and various religions in the scenario where we discover : the universe has no known beginning or end. It is mostly steady state. (big bang, expansion implemented differently) everything is made of electromagnetic field generating […]
