Why Does Quantum Mechanics not Scale Up

- Physics, Philosophy
- 2011

Quantum mechanics (QM) has the problem of lacking a coherent conceptual foundation, even if its quantitative algorithms are functionally adequate. This paper appraises the conceptual logic beneath…

Circumventing Bell’s Theorem? Design of a Non-Local Hidden-Variable Model with Physical Substructures

- Philosophy
- 2012

The purpose of this paper was to look for non-local designs of particles. We show that the Bell-type theorems are not proof against a hidden variable solution, by presenting such a model complete…

Wave-Particle Duality: a Conceptual Solution from the Cordus Conjecture

- Physics
- 2011

There are several integration problems of fundamental physics that still lack coherent solutions, the case in point being wave-particle duality. While empiricism and mathematical modelling have…

Wave-particle duality: A proposed resolution

There are several integration problems of fundamental physics that still lack coherent solutions, the case in point being wave-particle duality. While empiricism and mathematical modelling have…

Weak interaction : Reassembly of particules

- Physics
- 2011

The Standard Model interprets the weak interaction, e.g. neutron beta decay, to be a short-range field carried by the W and Z bosons. In that interpretation the short range arises because of the…

Time: Frequency, irreversibility, and connectedness of matter

- Physics
- 2012

A novel conceptual model is described for time, one that is independent of existing theories. The cordus conjecture suggests that time consists of frequency oscillations of matter. The arrow is…

Limits of coherence: Where and why is the transition to discoherence?

- Physics
- 2012

This paper provides a conceptual solution to the questions of what causes discoherence and where the limits of coherence might be. Coherence is reinterpreted from the cordus perspective, as being a…

Annihilation mechanisms : Intermediate processes in the conversion of electron and antielectron into photons

- Physics
- 2011

The outcomes of annihilation are known, including some of the intermediary products, and the process can be represented by Feynman diagrams and modelled mathematically. However the mechanisms of…

The preponderance of matter: Asymmetrical genesis via the antineutrino route

- Physics
- 2011

The existence of the universe is an enigma because the energy at genesis should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter, which should have subsequently annihilated. What happened in the…

Strong interaction reconceptualised: Synchronous interlocking of discrete field elements

- Physics
- 2012

The purpose of this work was to create a new conceptual model of the strong force (interaction). This is necessary because existing models, of which quantum chromodynamics is the dominant paradigm,…

Cordus Conjecture: Part 1.2 Quo Vadis, Photon?

- Physics
- 2011

Photon path dilemmas are a difficult area for conventional physics. Typical situations are the double-slit device and interferometers. The problem manifests as an apparent ability of the photon to…

Cordus Matter: Part 3.5 Schrodingers Cat Reconceptualised

Quantum mechanics is the dominant conceptual foundation for fundamental physics. Nonetheless there are effects that it does not explain, or explains only by reference to metaphysical effects. While…

Cordus Conjecture: Part 1.1 Quis es tu Photon?

- Physics
- 2011

A new conceptual model is proposed for the internal structure of the photon, and the mechanics thereof. This internal structure is called a cordus. The cordus consists of two reactive ends (RE)…

Cordus in Extremis: Part 4.1 Electromagnetism

- Physics

The Cordus conjecture is extended to create a conceptual model for electromagnetic fields. The resulting model shows how a cordus particuloid generates small transient units of force at the…

Cordus in Extremis: Part 4.3 Gravitation, Mass and Time

- Physics

Gravitation is conceptually problematic to General Relativity and Quantum mechanics in that the fundamental mechanisms are unknown to both, and the theories have different requirements that are…

Cordus in Extremis: Part 4.4 Quarks

- Physics

A conceptual model is created for the composition of quarks and the internal structure of the proton and neutron. In this model the charge of a quark indicates the number of hyff (force lines) it…

Cordus Optics: Part 2.1 Frequency

- Physics

Conventional particle and wave theories struggle to explain the frequency of photons and matter in a coherent manner using natural physics. This paper applies the cordus conjecture to develop a model…

Cordus Conjecture: Part 1.3 Explanation of Fringes

- Physics

The cordus concept is shown to be able to explain wave behaviour in gaps, and fringes in the double slit device. This is useful because one of the enigmas of the double-slit device is that single…

Cordus Matter: Part 3.2 Matter Particuloids
