The claim that quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the most successful theory in history is critically evaluated. The Dirac equation was postulated in 1926 as a means to remedy the nonrelativistic nature of the Schrodinger equation to provide the missing fourth quantum number. The positive and negative square root terms provided an argument for the existence of negative energy states of the vacuum, virtual particles, and corresponding so-called QED computer algorithms for calculating unexpected… Expand

In a speculation, the triton-proton-quark model has been extended to the electron, to a succession of subquarks, and finally to the "cosmon." Rapid decay of a cosmon-anticosmon pair created from the "nothing" state in a spontaneous quantum jump initiated the Big Bang. Expand
