While doing some research for a sci-fi novel I'm writing, I read most of a two part online pdf about Dirac's equation.
Basically, the two articles dealt with the "sea" of negative energy, which Dirac proposed years ago, I believe around the 1930s, whereby possibly
all matter is simply composed of only four particles:
3. negative energy electron
4. negative energy positron
This theory does away with protons, neutrons, and photons, not to mention doing away with most of the leptons. Quarks are essentially missing as well
(since protons and neutrons consist of quarks, in certain quark flavors and colors). Gone too are all the force particles (including photons, as
mentioned above). The author of these articles believes that electromagnetic radiation simply consists of what he calls "epos" which are electron
and positron "pairs" which attract other epos by connecting positive to negative ends, linearly, one pair after another -- this in effect becomes
the missing photon particle found in electromagnetic radiation. Within the two articles, the author explains in detail how gravitation, strong nuclear
force, and weak nuclear force exist without their force particles as well.
Okay, I know this must sound "out there" and I know it's not the first time someone has proposed some type of theory whereby only
electrons/positrons and/or maybe a few other elementary particles are all that's needed to make up physical matter, but, this author really seems to
have dotted his i's and crossed his t's. His theory makes a lot of sense.
I've studied particle physics and string theory, and WOW! does the Standard Model and even string theory beg the reader to believe numerous particles
are necessary for matter and the universe to function. We're led to believe numerous resonance particles, that barely last for any conceivable time
interval, and many quarks and leptons are needed in the Standard Model, while complicated Calabi Yau dimensional spaces are necessary for the
vibrations of elementary particle strings, along with complicated, head spinning mathematical equations to have string theory make any proof positive
And when is the Standard Model going to have its Grand Unified Theory? Doesn't look like anytime soon, going the same route most physicists have been
following (which may have a lot to do with Heisenberg and his uncertainty principle...see the articles for more)
Doesn't a simple theory seem so much more natural and intuitive? Though sure, we've grown up to believe the standard model of the atom, with its
proton, neutron, and electron, many paranormal phenomena, that seems unexplainable from our current view point of physics, could possibly be readily
explained by this author's theory. Epos as electromagnetic radiation, and even an ether (yes, I know, that idea was trashed long ago), show great
promise in solving how telepathic and telekinetic processes truly work. Trust me, if you read these articles, you'll get a good eureka, it will all
make much more sense.
The only thing I have to question in practicality with this author's theory is the numerous tracks left behind from particle collisions (like at
CERN)...not sure these tracks can be explained by only four elementary particles alone...
Here are the two urls:
Though I encourage anyone to read these articles, I have to admit that having a basic understanding of physics, especially nuclear and particle
physics would help, though, if you love science like me, it really doesn't matter. Read them anyway.
