Take a look at any smart mobile phone and it is possible to see that the phone is capable of processing data at the rate of several gigabits per second. Imagine what the word process means; collecting input data, processing that data and storing or outputting the result. Now look at the humble electron! Compared to the mobile phone the distances over which an electron has to oscillate are miniscule! It should be fairly obvious that an electron can easily oscillate at several hundreds of terahertz per second! What does this mean ? It means that the fuzzy definition of electromagnetic radiation hitherto accepted as fact, namely that in some cases the electron actually absorbs and emits electrons but that in the majority of others the radiation is in the form of an electromagnetic wave that is reflected off the atom. For instance take the case of someone looking out of a window on a sunny day at a beautiful lawn. Quantum Mechanics will tell you that what is seen is merely a reflected electromagnetic wave. Neo-Classical physics (or Gestalt Aether Theory) states that the electrons within the atoms of the grass lawn are oscillating at the rate of 600 THz (6 x 10 14) approx. and emitting photons at a similar rate. THUS the term frequency that quantum mechanics treats as an abstract term, is a very real term in Neo-Classical physics, denoting that green light is made up of a line of photons emitted at the rate of 600 THz by receptive electrons within the atoms in the blades of grass. Thus Neo-Classical Physics (Gestalt Aether Theory) states that ALL changes in the energy states of the electron are through the emission and absorption of photons. There is no sometimes particle , sometimes wave interpretation, every interaction involving electrons is due to emission or absorption of photons.
Having established that photons are emitted and absorbed at prodigious rates. It is time to return to the first moments of the Big Bang ! Although it is generally accepted that the Big Bang was not a bang in the accepted sense of an explosion but that it involved a rapid inflation or expansion, opinions is almost unanimous that light must have been present also. It is almost a corollary that if matter was present light (or rather photons) must have been present also, although light might not at this early stage of the Universe have been able to propagate. The question is what happened to all that light, look at the ratio; for every atom of matter, photons were being emitted at the rate of hundreds of Terahertz per second (1012) per second. What happened to those photons ? They could not have escaped over the borders of the Universe because by definition nothing exists outside the Universe, so they must have been contained in some way within the Universe. Most of the readers here will be familiar with the Neo-Classical Physics (Gestalt Aether Theory) model of the photon and will be aware that it resembles a di-pole that can be oriented in any direction and has the capability of storing energy. This particular structure for the photons also means that photons can join together either in parallel or in series and it is presumed that this is what happened.
According to Neo-Classical theory the electron is a charged particle, whose energy is mediated by the photon. What could be more natural than that the way in which this energy exchange is affected, is achieved is through the electron emitting or absorbing bursts of electrical energy ?
The pulses of energy emitted by the electron are separated by distances that are small enough to exclude atoms or molecules, since no atom or molecules can exist in the spaces between the pulses of emitted energy they make an ideal di-electric. This gives to the photon a capacitor like aspect together with the ability to store energy for long periods of time. These bursts of electrical energy are polarised, resulting in the formation of a dipole, the existence of a di-pole formation in turn results in the formation of a solenoidal field existing around the photon, this solenoidal field is what gives the photon its wave characteristic.
Thus the picture of the photon that emerges is of a di-pole particle.
It can now be easily verified that this model of the photon accounts for all of the properties of the photon:
1. The photon has no mass.
2. The photon is never at rest.
3. The photon is electrically neutral
4. The photon always travels at the speed of light c. in a vacuum.
5. The photon retains its energy intact over huge distances until it is absorbed by another electron.
6. The photon possesses both wave like and particle like properties.
7. The photon can manifest in trillions of different frequencies energies and wavelengths.
The electron emits bursts of energy that form small packet or quanta of energy, that travel at the speed of light, that have no mass, that deliver or take away energy and thus act as mediators of the electron energy, that such a mechanism allows for the existence of trillions of wave-lengths and associated frequencies and so on.
As the Universe continued to expand the network of linked photons expand with the Universe, as the expansion went on the individual energy of the photons was spread out among the network of linked photons, till eventually they reached such a low state of energy ( about 10-45 eV ) that they for all practical purposes ceased to exist! Because of this extremely low energy it was possible for this linked network of photons that permeated the entire Universe, to exist for practically ever, with life times similar to that of the proton or the electron. These 'virtual photons' f the virtual photon aether were almost stationary dipole particles with which no matter would or could interact, thus they could travel through matter as if it did not exist. Eventually when all of the Universe was full of this linked network of photons, light began to propagate in the way that is familiar to us today. When an electron within an atom emits a real photon the photons of the virtual photon aether, line up into a line whose ends rest on infinity and the energy of the real photon travels along this line of linked photons.
