The Wave Nature of Matter
IMO the following is an extremely important paper that points the direction to further advances in physics. In an article named "The Physical Origin of Electron Spin" Milo Wolff has completed the proof that all properties of the electron are able to be derived from a physical model. In that model there is a wave that converges on the electron center, rotates and diverges again so that the combination leads to a standing wave. The rotation is according to the model known as spherical rotation (to distinguish it from the normal cylindrical rotation). There is a detailed explanation at http://www.sirius.com/~flapjack/milo/PhysRevSpinNov97.html although unfortunately the figures from his PhysRev paper are missing. Wolff traces his ideas back to Clifford in 1876 and later to the pioneers of quantum physics and so the solution to this problem has been a long time coming. Wolff's words on this result... 'Although the origin of spin has been a fascinating problem of physics for sixty years, spin itself is not the important result. Instead, the most extraordinary conclusion of the wave electron structure is that the laws of physics and the structure of matter ultimately depend upon the waves from the total of matter in a universe. Every particle communicates its wave state with all other matter so that the particle structure, energy exchange, and the laws of physics are properties of the entire ensemble. This is the origin of Mach's Principle. The universal properties of the quantum space waves are also found to underlie the universal clock and the constants of nature. This structure settles a century old paradox of whether particles are waves or point-like bits of matter. They are wave structures in space. There is nothing but space. As Clifford speculated 100 years ago, matter is simply, "undulations in the fabric of space".' -- Ray Tomes -- http://www.kcbbs.gen.nz/users/rtomes/rt-home.htm -- Cycles email list -- http://www.kcbbs.gen.nz/users/af/cyc.htm
