Wave Particle Duality — Rotating Loop Riding a Wire

Foreword

The Mythic Theory of Everything (MToE) is a fabricated theory created as a parody of modern physics. It has been refined to be irritating to all schools of study, but if I have failed to include anyone, please advise and I will make amends. For some it might be seen as pseudo-science, although at this time there is no advocate presenting it as actually being true. I freely agree that it is nonsense and it should not be taken seriously. In that capacity, it can never be anything more than just junk science. Ironically, it demands explicit adherence to the rules that it is built on, so it makes a great thought experiment. This essay addresses how Wave Particle Duality looks when viewed with the MToE.

This article is part of the series called the Mythic Theory of Everything. If you view my About data, a list of all the other articles can be seen.

Chapter 1 — Background

Do not under any circumstance study the MToE as actually theory. Keep in mind that the proper use of the MToE is to educate from a devil’s advocate position. For example, if I disagree with an aspect of modern physics, e.g. photons, rather than rant and rave about the subject and disavow the volumes of scientific literature, I simply ask the reader to explain why the MToE is wrong. Admittedly, the MToE concept is ridiculous, but it still demands thoughtful rebuttal to dismiss.

The first concept of the MToE states that giant filament loops fill up our universe. The filaments themselves are super strong, immensely long, very thin, and completely friction-less. These loops exist in a jumble that defines our universe. Other jumbles of filaments might well constitute other universes that we can not detect.

The second concept of the MToE states that all energy is transmitted though the filaments that make up the universe. As such, all treatment of electromagnetic phenomena must be viewed as actual waves and vibrations in these filaments.

The third concept states that mass is a stored form of energy when a loop is created in a one of these filaments. The loop can roll along the filament and represents an elemental particle. The loop also rotates around the filament to impart electromagnetic properties.

Chapter 2 — Wave Particle Duality

The concept of elemental particles, e.g. electrons, moving along waves seems a little odd at first, but examples are plentiful. Imagine a leaf floating in a stream of water, bopping up and down as it travels, or in a more personal manner, riding in a car traveling up and down hills. The unique part of modern physics is the electrons do this without the aid of a medium, i.e. a stream or a hill. We know about the phenomena because particles in a beam can interfere with other particles that they do not actually touch, much like the wake of a boat rocking other boats.

The MToE offers a visualization of this. As the mass loop rides a filament, it rotates as it moves along, creating a sine wave necklace. See the Wave Particle Duality illustration at the start of the article. Keep in mind this is not actually the true nature of a particle according to modern physics, although it does comply with the implicit requirements of a wave-particle. This is a deceptive aspect of the MToE, it shows a sensible appearance of things, but they are simply not an accepted scientific view. The accepted graphic can be found in the Visualization section of the Mass–Energy Equivalence article found in the link above.

Particle waves have a defined wavelength. This is the De Broglie Wavelength, which is calculated in a manner similar to the electromagnetic wavelength, but using the mass and momentum of the particle.

Chapter 3 — Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle

A related concept is Heisenberg’s Uncertainty principle. The wave nature of particles causes uncertainty in the accuracy of predictions in how a particle may behave.

Wikipedia Uncertainty Principle — 11 February 2022, at 20:48 (UTC)

 ... the uncertainty principle states that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be predicted from initial conditions, and vice versa ...

Although it has the purpose of telling us how far off we are in determining where a particle is located and how fast it is moving, it is often misused for all manner of speculative debate. Much of this appears to be confusion with the “observer effect,” where the act of making measurements in an experiment can influence the outcome.

My way of thinking about it is like this. Imagine you release a sheep with a bell into a large wooded enclosure. You know the sheep is somewhere inside, but you do not know where. If you can hear the sheep’s bell, you can determine the direction of its movement, but you do not know exactly where it is. If you enter the enclosure and track down the sheep, you will know exactly where it is, but if you stand at that location, the sheep may wander off in a new direction. Thus you can never reliably know both the location and the direction of movement of the sheep. (And they say you can not see this phenomenon in macro objects!) The “observer effect” would occur if the sheep sees you and reacts to your presence by approaching you and completely ruining the experiment.

The uncertainty principle is an annoying reminder for modern physics that wave particle behavior is a real phenomenon. For the MToE it is business as usual, but that does not make either one any more credible than the other.

Chapter 4 — The Photon Particle

It is easy to see that a particle moving in a wave fashion is actually traveling a greater distance along the edge of the sine wave than it would if it merely traveled point to point in a straight line, so it actually travels faster than it is clocked. Since this is not an observed phenomena in modern physics, I will assume there is a special quantum rule that prohibits it, otherwise, there would be consequences for Special Relativity. In the MToE it is a real phenomenon, so it needs to be addressed in some later article.

There is an interesting aspect of high particle velocities found in the introduction section of the Matter-Wave article found in the link above. The de Broglie wavelength is the same as the Compton wavelength when velocity reaches the speed of light. The Compton wavelength is the mass energy equivalence of a particle. Special Relativity would tell us that we gain infinite mass at the speed of light. Perhaps all our mass really just converts to energy waves. Note that no such phenomenon is seen in particle colliders. The faster the particles travel, the more massive they become. I think what we are actually seeing is the wave-particle sine wave shrinking to more of an “eye” form.

Spinning loops converging into an “eye”

In the same fashion, if a photon particle travels at the speed of light along a wave, it is actually traveling faster than light, but I know the quantum answer to this one. A photon is a particle only when it is convenient to be a particle; otherwise, it is a wave. In the MToE a photon is always a wave.

Chapter 5 — Mass Wave Compression of Particles

When an energy wave converts to a mass loop it does not keep the size expected. We expect the mass loop diameter to be the same size as the circular polarized wave that propagates it, but experimental data shows it to be much smaller. For example, a gamma ray with the energy of an electron has a wavelength equal to the Compton wavelength of the electron, i.e. 2.426×10^−12 m. However, work with a single electron in a Penning trap shows the upper limit around 2×10^−22 m.

See the junk science article for Mass-Energy Equivalence at:

Junk Science Version Of Mass Energy Equivalence

If we use the De Broglie Wavelength for an electron we are back in the vicinity of our original prediction for the size of an electron, e.g. 10^-10 m for an electron moving around 5×10⁶ m/sec. For the MToE this suggests that a filament structure in the expected range actually exists. Now, exactly how would this work?

Jump ropes with large and small loops
Mass Wave Particle Compression

If we hold a mass loop in a cradle as illustrated above, the force of gravity will pull it tighter and make the loop smaller. Since the MToE version of the particle is rapidly spinning, we would expect trans-centripetal force to perform the same compression. Therefore, the size of an electron in the MToE is governed by the speed of a particle cradle’s rotational spin and can be much smaller than expected. Note that if you try this with jump ropes or shoe strings, the force will tear the pseudo mass loop apart and create a pseudo neutrino. The mass loop gets gyro-stability only when the mass loop is spinning at a significant rate. (And, if you get a real world filament spinning that fast, you will have a weed eater!)

Chapter 6 — Conclusions

The MToE is the poster child for Wave-Particle Duality. What else needs to be said. Honestly though, if we took the geocentric model of the universe, the Ptolemaic system, created by Ptolemy in antiquity and we put it on a super computer with a million correction factors, it would probably work as well as modern astronomy. (Please, do not actually do this! It would be a great waste of resources.) So, the moral of the story is that just because the theory appears to work, it does not mean the theory is the best solution or even a good solution for that matter.
