This guy's series is getting crazy. There's another thread about the whole series... but I am making this thread to talk about ONLY the implications
of the 2 slit experiment explanation, deriving planck's constant, and how photons only gain their packet like energy after slowing down when absorbed
by an atom, much like a tsunami.
And there is math that proves ALL of what he says... At the end it says the next segment will show how to derive this speed of transition from first
principles... Although it also explains why the fine structure constant is dimensionless, because its a ratio of 2 speeds... The speed of transition
equals the speed of light over 2times the fine structure, but the math is circular until he shows us how to derive the speed of transition from first
principles, so i can't wait. (ok maybe i'm a nerd lol).
This video starts deriving Planck's constant, and produces Einsteins photoelectric effect without Planck.
This one, the first few minutes are just him complaining... like the first 3 minutes.. Then he explaines why they are using the plate capacitor
equations to calculate the capacitance of a photon, and gives an overview of the 2 slit experiment.
This one gives the explanation for the 2 slit experiment, and the explanation for why the photon has a width used in calculating the capacitance of
the compressed transitional photon.
I think all of this makes sense... Discuss.

The single biggest problem I had with the videos was that they didn't properly explain why Frank was using the capacitance formula.
So I'm looking forward to hearing an explanation.
EDIT - That being said, I was very impressed by what I did hear. This is more tangible and better supported than most of the "crazy" theories that
come through here.
It is actually worth a watch, and Frank's paper is worth a read as well. Some people were claiming they couldn't find it, but if you just search for
his name "Frank Znidarsic" the paper shows up, and you can read it for free in pdf.
Please understand I'm being hyper-skeptical of this. It actually sounds very good to me, but I am finding problems wherever I can. This hypothesis is
worth some careful scrutiny by experts, but it would be a mistake to jump to any conclusions. I'm still confused by his use of formulas, and I am wary
of potential unit manipulation. His math is sound; there are no problems with his significant digits, or values or anything... but math is just a
tool. You can use math to prove anything if you disregard the physical meaning of mathematical symbols. In the end, I really can't pass judgment on
the physics. I don't know enough.

Skepticism is good... What part are you having a problem with? It's hard to think that the compacted photon is a capacitor.. But the explanation of a
tsunami scrunching up, forming the wave packet makes a hell of a lot of sense to me.
Plus it really does seem like a photon has the properties of a capacitor, once it's collapsed anyway.
GAHH!! This dude is killin' me with re-uploading videos.. The NEW link for part 12:
Lord knows what what he changed, but I'm not gonna get mad... Obviously he wants them perfect. I don't blame him... This stuff will be in the history
books, one day, I think.
And in reply to you, Vt comes from 2 things:
it is the speed of light over 2times the fine structure constant, which explains why the fine structure constant is dimensionless: it's a ratio of 2
speeds. And also Vt can be derived from first principles as the speed of sound within the nucleus.
That is the key component of franks work, that the impedance matching required to transfer 100% energy from mechanical state (electron orbiting) to
electromagnetic state (photon), necessitates a matching of the speed of light and the speed of sound. Of course this can only be achieved through
force equalization, namely through the magnetic components of gravitomagnetism and electromagnetism.
