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 served physics well, they have not yet been able to achieve integrated causal models. Conventional theories and approaches have only provided partial solutions, and it is possible that a more radical reconceptualisation of fundamental physics may be required. This work comes at the issue from a totally…

Bundles of Nothingness: Unravelling the Zero-Dimensional Particle Premise of Fundamental Physics
The conventional conceptual framework for fundamental physics is built on a tacit construct: the premise of particles being zero-dimensional (0-D) points. There has never been a viable alternative to
Mirror images : Matter and
Existing theories of physics struggle to explain the difference between matter and antimatter in ways that make physical sense. This paper offers a reconceptualisation based on the cordus conjecture.
A Physical Basis for Entanglement in a Non-Local Hidden Variable Theory
Problem: Superposition and entanglement are coherent effects, which can be quantified by quantum mechanics (QM), but lack descriptive explanations. They are typically analysed with inequality
Mirror Images: Matter and Antimatter
Existing theories of physics struggle to explain the difference between matter and antimatter in ways that make physical sense. This paper offers a reconceptualisation based on the cordus conjecture.
Inner Processes of Photon Emission and Absorption
Problem- There are deep unanswered questions about photon emission, specifically how the field structures of the photon emerge from the electron. While this problem cannot be answered from within
Restoring physical realism
Problem - Many attempts have been made, starting from Quantum mechanics (QM), to prove the non-viability of hidden-variable (HV) solutions, and to justify the unnaturalness of QM explanations over
Energy Conversion Mechanics for Photon Emission per Non-Local Hidden-Variable Theory
Problem-Energy conversion processes in optical phenomena are incompletely explained by wave theory or quantum mechanics. There is a need for ontologically rich explanations at the level of individual
A physical interpretation of string theory
This note identifies similarities between the cordus conjecture and string theory, and suggests opportunity for new research directions. To fully define a cordus particule requires 11 geometric
Synchronous Interlocking of Discrete Forces: Strong Force Reconceptualised in a NLHV Solution
The conventional requirements for the strong force are that it is strongly attractive between nucleons whether neutral neutrons or positively charged protons; that it is repulsive at close range;
Why Does Quantum Mechanics not Scale Up
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


Cordus Optics: Part 2.1 Frequency
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 1.1 Quis es tu Photon?
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 Conjecture: Part 1.2 Quo Vadis, Photon?
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 Conjecture: Part 1.3 Explanation of Fringes
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 optics : Part 2 . 3 Refraction
Explaining basic optical effects is not possible with classical particle mechanics, and even with quantum mechanics it is not straight forward and not particularly intuitive. The problem is much
Cordus Optics: Part 2.2 Reflection
Optical effects such as reflection and refraction are conventionally best described by Electromagnetic Wave theory, at least when they involve beams of light. However that theory does not explain why
Cordus Conjecture: Overview
The Cordus conjecture suggests there is a deeper, simpler, deterministic, and more elegant reality beneath quantum mechanics and wave theory.
