ABOUT LIGHT

I walked into a
co-worker’s office with a technical calculator in my hand to ask
him a question, something related to our work. I was a chemical
engineer, but he had a double PhD, one in chemical engineering and
another in electrical engineering, so I often went to his office for
technical advice and also for interesting discussions on many other
subjects. I leaned against the door frame as the discussion drifted
to the fascinating subject of light.

He told me that he
had long sought for a physical analogy for light. We use such
analogies to describe many aspects of what we cant see, like an
electron orbiting a nucleus can be thought of as a planet orbiting a
sun or the moon orbiting the earth, and those visual analogies can be drawn as an image on a blackboard and discussed. That helps us find
and refine the mathematics and the physics and the forces that define the processes
involved.

But, so far, light is a mystery. It has a set of dual properties
that can define light as both a particle and as a wave. But how can we draw an image that represents both a particle and a wave.

However
he had found a much better, much simpler analog:

- “A photon of light
is neither a particle nor a wave.”

His explanation was

- "A photon of light is TWO particles orbiting each other at the
speed of light, and traveling together in one direction at the speed of light."

Think of it as two neutrino sized particles, lets
call them “pips”, one is positively charged and one negative.
They are orbiting each other with a speed of ‘C’, that is
~300,000 kilometers or ~186,000 mile per second. AND they are
traveling together at that same speed through space. These are very tiny, but their speed is reportedly the fastest in the universe, i.c. "C".

When
we use an instrument to detect the photon by stopping the photon, it
appears to be a particle with some minuscule amount of mass, just like
Einstein taught us. When light passes a massive body, such as the
sun, it bends. And, when it gets close to a black hole, gravity will pull
it into the black hole. However, when we use an instrument that
looks at the photon from the side, or as it passes the instrument,
the photon looks like a wave… it is actually two opposing waves.

That would certainly explain some of the mysteries
connected with a photon of light…. but he had more. He went into a
long mathematical explanation of what an electron is. He said that
an electron is three photons, or 6 pips, “trapped” in a tight orbit.
He explained that (statistically I think) this cluster of three
negative pips and three positive pips would have a constantly changing “core
area” of two positive and one negative pip and a constantly moving
exterior shell of one positive and two negative: that leaves one
extra negative charge on the exterior shell, thus an electron is seen
as being negative.

Then he tried to explain, with a long
long equation, how the energy of these six pips (many values of ‘C’)
was generating the mass of the electron (remember E=mC

^{2}
?). The math was way above my pay grade, but the logic seemed plausible.

He continued to
explain what happened to five (5) photons that entered a similar
cluster. Again he put the math on the green board. It was the same
long formula but with two different different numerical

factors,
the first and last numbers. It looked something like this:

A) 3 photons or 6 pips (an electron?) looked like this: 2 * ( xxx *

yyy *** **zzz * qqq) * ԉ^{7}^{
}
and B) 5 photons or 10 pips
(???) looked like this: 12 * ( xxx *
yyy *** **zzz * qqq) *
ԉ^{12
}

He
then informed me that the second object with 5 photons or 10 pips was
a proton??? At this statement I reacted. “No," I said "you only have a
ratio of 10 to six or five to 3. That is not the mass ratio of a proton to an electron !"

His
response was ‘do the math’. If we divide the energy formula B
by the energy formula A all the factors disappear but this: B / A =
(12 * ԉ^{12})
/ (2 * ԉ^{7}^{
})
= **6 ****ԉ**^{5
},
or six^{
}pi
to the 5th power.

Then he said “You have
a calculator, do the math.” I looked down at my calculator and
input the number. I instantly recognized the first four digits as the
mass ratio of the proton to an electron.. some number stuck in my
memory from decades before.

I looked up at him in astonishment and said, “That’s it.” He smiled at me and echoed “That’s it.”

- Six
times
*pi*
to the fifth power is 1836.118109

__The
mass ratio of a proton to an electron__ as reported in
Wikipedia is:
μ
= mp/me =
1836.152673

Thus,
there
is a difference of only 0000.034
or a difference of 3 in the sixth significant figure between these two calculations. Is that number, coming
from a technical study of the energies involved, just a
coincidence???

As
I absorbed the wave of understanding that
came from my calculator, my
friend smiled and said, “In Genesis *He
*said
‘Let there be light’… that is all there is! Everything is
composed of light.”

I
have mentioned this concept
of
light to
a handful of physicists. Without
even
offering
to look at any
of my
friend’s
work, or his
math,
or
even ask me for his name they
immediately dismiss it as being
“numerology”. After all, my friend only has two PhD’s to his credit. However, neither
of those
degrees
are in ‘physics’; so
why should they even consider a different approach by an “outsider”.
Jeremiah once said 5:21 *“...**O
**foolish
**people,
and without understanding; which have eyes, and **see
not**;
which have ears, and **hear
**not:”*

What
they have rejected, and thus failed to read or hear is his ability to also
formulate
Planck’s constant (to 5 significant figures), the characteristics
of all the quarks, and other Physics
constants
and
phenomena. All of his math and conclusions were based
on the number and the
positive or negative charges
of ‘pips’ in
the photon,
all based on this unique and
easily understood definition
of the photon.

In
parallel to my friend’s experience there is now another theory of
light, the Pilot Wave Theory. It
is much simpler than the QED or “quantum theory”
and
it is easier to understand,... that is, Pilot Wave theory is logical,... while QED
defies logic.
An interesting historical note is that Pilot Wave was
proposed by
a grad student 92 years ago at
the same 1927 Solvay Conference where
QED
was
proposed and accepted an pursued, attracting most of the research funding in physics.
QED was illogical, but won, supposedly
because
the math was a little simpler, or perhaps
because
the leaders at that 1927 conference had
developed
QED. (Politics?)

Sadly,
I do not have any any published work by my friend on this subject. He has not been able to attract any funding to test his concept. However, below is a video on the Pilot Wave theory... which most physicists
have ignored for well
over
90 years. At
last a few people, mostly in France, have given it serious consideration, so perhaps
the 100 year mark will bring new hope to this simpler, more
logical theory. Then, in another fifty years or so, perhaps my friend’s
theory will get an audience.

I
read a book a few decades ago called “Ideas in Conflict” (Theodore J. Gordon, 1966).
In it the author said that in order for a person to get a truly new concept
accepted by the world, they only have three hurdles to overcome “Organized Religions, Organized Government, and,
surprisingly, Organized SCIENCE.” In my reading of recent and ancient history, and
in my personal experience, I
have
found this to be true many, many
times.
