Comparative Wave Models
While the wave structures described by Wolff and LaFreniere have already been outlined, it may be useful to consider an animation where both wave structures can be directly compared, as in the case below. In the top section, we can see the Wolff model, while directly underneath is the LaFreniere model. At first glance it may seem that there is not much to choose between either, but on close examination, it is clear that these are very different descriptions of the wave structure of matter.
In the animation above, the relative velocity [β=v/c=0] is zero, such that we might visualise a stationary wave-centre. Within each section, the top set of waveforms, e.g. red/black and blue/green, might be interpreted as the individual waves propagating through the media of space according to the Wolff and LaFreniere models respectively. However, the Wolff model appears to have a set of 4 waves, which in the stationary case have equal wavelength:
- forward-in (fi)
- forward-out (fo)
- backwards-in (bi)
- backwards-out (bo)
In contrast, the LaFreneire model might be initially described as consisting of only 2 waves being sourced by other wave-centres, forwards and backwards of the central position being modelled:
- forward (f)
- backwards (b)
At this point, you might be wondering whether the LaFreniere model is describing IN or OUT waves as the nomenclature used by the Wolff model appears to be missing. This is because the LaFreniere model is essentially only showing OUT waves, which a paraphrasing of LaFreniere words below suggests creates a semi self-sustaining resonance, which only requires a ‘top-up’ of wave energy:
“Without incoming energy, the electron, i.e. wave-centre, would still emit spherical outgoing waves. So it would rapidly fade out. Obviously, it needs replenishment. This is accomplished by powerful and constant aether waves. Travelling waves penetrating through standing wave antinodes are deviated because of a lens effect. A small part of the energy is transferred to the standing waves. This constantly refilled energy allows the electron to exist forever and means that in-phase IN waves are not needed any more."
While we will also need to question the LaFreniere wave model further,
the fact that this model does not require in-phase wave on a continuous
basis, as per the Wolff model, may solve a number of the apparent problems
raised. For example, the following animation is the same comparative
model as presented above, except that the wave-centre is now moving
with a velocity [v=0.5c]:
To-date, no permutation of the Wolff IN-OUT wave model in motion appears to avoid a discontinuity of the standing wave amplitudes in the forward and backward directions at the wave-centre. This problem appears to be avoided by the LaFreniere model, such that an exact distribution of in-phase IN waves may no longer be required. So with this basic issue tabled, the following sub-page will try to summarise some of the wider concerns with the Wolff model.
