    Thanks Bob. Amazingly, this sort of stuff goes back nearly two hundred years. I wrote something about it in an article called A worble embracing itself. It starts like this:

    An electron is an electromagnetic wave in a closed path which sits around a proton to form a hydrogen atom. Think of the electron as something like a hula hoop of light. It goes around the proton, but it isn't some speck that goes…

    That sounds like an incomplete gamma-gamma pair production. If the interacting photons were traveling 100,000 times slower, it sounds as if they're looping somehow. Maybe moving in a helical fashion.

    I don't know if you know, but…

    Here's a little something more about light interacting with light.

    "groups of three photons interacting and, in effect, sticking together to form a completely new kind of photonic matter"

    "the researchers found that the bound photons actually acquired a…

    OK noted.

    That was the impure Breit-Wheeler process that involved gamma photons and laser light. See https://www.imperial.ac.uk/new…y-turn-light-into-matter/ for something more recent.

    I've written an article about Oliver Consa's excellent paper. IMHO it deserves all the publicity it can get: Something is rotten in the state of QED

    It sounds rather exotic and rather odd to me, Navid. Sorry. A transition state orbitosphere is not something I'm familiar with. As far as I know matter is what we call it when energy moves in a closed path. That's all. That's what de…

    I'm sorry Wyttenback, but the evidence says it's one wave in a double loop. That's why the electron is a spin ½ particle with a g-factor of 2.002319. In electron-positron annihilation we typically see two 511keV gamma photons.

    Sorry Wyttenbach, I don't know what you mean here.

    But can I offer this: a 511keV photon has no rest mass because it isn't at rest. But if it's interacting with itself it goes round and round in a closed path, then it's effectively…

    Hi Oliver. I think your paper is great. It is forensic physics at its finest. I'm doing a physics detective article on it. You will like it.

    No Mark, the photon-photon interaction is really strong. It's the interaction that makes an electron stay an electron. It;s also the interaction that makes a proton stay a proton. We have good scientific evidence that the electron is…

    Yes. It's called gamma-gamma pair production. Light interacts with light. I wrote an article about it: http://physicsdetective.com/how-pair-production-works/

    At all times. Because electron mass is resistance to change-in-motion for a wave going round and round at c. Meanwhile photon momentum is resistance to change-in-motion for a wave moving linearly at c. See

    I think it's an interference phenomenon Navid. I wrote about it. Art Hobson gave a similar explanation of the double slit experiment in his 2013 paper There are no particles, there are only fields. See page 12. I’m surprised I hadn't…

    That's an excellent paper. Only I'd say the situation is even worse than Oliver Consa thinks. QED was wrong from the very beginning. I've studied the history, and spent a lot of time looking into this. Here's some articles I've…

    Any comment ?

    "Quantum electrodynamics (QED) is considered the most accurate theory in the history of science. However, this precision is based on a single experimental value: the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron (g-factor). An examination of QED

    It's all baloney. Since it's the wave nature of matter, a more massive particle has a shorter wavelength. Martin van der Mark wrote about this. See on the nature of stuff and the hierarchy of the forces: smaller mass means bigger…
