A Wave Structure Perspective
The idea within this section is to examine an alternative model of the underlying nature of matter. Some of the ideas may still be on the fringe of even speculative science and therefore may ultimately be proven to be wrong. However, it seems clear that there are issues within the current model of physics that are unresolved and may ultimately require a radical re-think of what we currently called accepted science. The following questions are tabled as examples of the sort of questions that this section may come to consider:
What is the fundamental nature of matter, i.e. the
wave-particle duality problem?
What is the physical interpretation of quantum theory?
Can the conflicts between relativity and quantum theory be resolved?
Does the vacuum of space have an underlying energy structure?
At this stage, the main focus is on examining the work of Milo Wolff and Gabriel LaFreniere, who both seem to be suggesting that the fundamental nature of matter is best described as a standing wave.
- A basic description of space resonance can be found on Milo
- Gabriel LaFreniere's website provides some very informative diagrams and simulations related to the concept of standing waves, as illustrated below.
As you might expect, there are no particles in the wave structure of matter in the sense of a discrete 'something of substance'. However, there are electrons, protons and neutrons, although these are made up of concentric spherical waves. An spherical in-wave moves inward towards some focal centre, which then undergoes spherical rotation and moves outwards from this centre as a spherical out-wave. Combined, their amplitudes add up to a spherical standing wave. The model below is simply a 2-dimensional representation of what is actually a 3-dimensional process.
Within the wave structure, it is impossible to say definitively where the electron starts and ends. Equally, a portion of the out-wave of one electron is a portion of the in-wave of another electron, so even the boundary between electrons is hard to define. The terms 'wave centre' and 'spherical resonance' are clearly more relevant to a wave model than a particle model, as the wave centre refers to the location where the in-wave undergoes spherical rotation to become the out-wave. It is also this wave centre that moves and gives the appearance of mass and momentum. Of course, while there is no harm in assigning the term particle to this wave centre, it has to be remembered that there are no discrete particles of substance with the wave structure of matter.
