It is shown that quantum mechanics is a plausible statistical description of an ontology described by classical electrodynamics. The reason that no contradiction arises with various no-go theorems regarding the compatibility of QM with a classical ontology, can be traced to the fact that classical electrodynamics of interacting particles has never been given a consistent definition. Once this is done, our conjecture follows rather naturally, including a purely classical explanation of photon… 
No Need for Dark-Matter, Dark-Energy or Inflation, Once Ordinary Matter is Properly Represented?
In a recent Foundations of Physics paper [5] by the current author it was shown that, when the self-force problem of classical electrodynamics is properly solved, it becomes a plausible ontology
Conjecture: A future perturbation to a chaotic system is manifested in its present behavior
The following is undisputed: 1. The conceptual relation between QM and the macroscopic world is as mysterious today as eighty years ago. 2. Chaotic systems can’t be propagated beyond a short time, as
Local Scale Covariance and Its Radical Implications for Cosmology
Local scale covariance posits that no privileged length scales should appear in the fundamental equations of local, Minkowskian physics—why should nature have scale, but not position
Dark Matter as Variations in the Electromagnetic Zero-Point Field Induced by Baryonic Matter
TLDR
The possibility that ‘dark matter’ is yet another, hitherto ignored facet of good-old classical electrodynamics, therefore seems no less plausible than it being a highly exotic and conspirative new form of matter.
The Electric Origin of Magnetic Forces Theory: General Framework
TLDR
This paper presents the first general framework to explain the magnetic force as a result of electric force interactions between current charges moving at any constant speed and combination using the basis of electric forces.
Electric Model for Electromagnetic Wave Fields
TLDR
This paper presents the first theoretical framework that defines the electric infinitesimal structure model of electromagnetic waves, which represents the electromagnetic fields by electric field components only and found to be exactly equivalent to Maxwell’s equations proving the validity of the proposed model.

Quantum States as Ordinary Information
TLDR
This paper develops the case that there is a plausible underlying reality: one actual spacetime-based history, although with behavior that appears strange when analyzed dynamically (one time-slice at a time), by using a simple model with no dynamical laws.
Bell’s theorem and the causal arrow of time
Einstein held that the formalism of quantum mechanics involves “spooky actions at a distance.” In the 1960s, Bell amplified this by showing that the predictions of quantum mechanics disagree with the

Physical restrictions on the choice of electromagnetic gauge and their practical consequences
It is shown that electromagnetic potentials convey physical information beyond that supplied by electric and magnetic fields alone, and are thus more fundamental. Observable physical properties can
Classical theory of radiating electrons
The Lorentz model of the electron as a small sphere charged with electricity, possessing mass on account of the energy of the electric field around it, has proved very valuable in accounting for the
