This thread is for discussing the nature/mechanisms of ELECTRICITY/MAGNETISM/PARTICLES/WAVES etc. in preparation for answering the questions in the "THEORY OF EVERYTHING BEGUN FROM ABSOLUTE CONCEPT" thread's relevant-STAGE QUESTION & ANSWER SESSIONS. Hopefully participants will use this thread to introduce/refine their insights/answers in these areas. Thanks.
'Interpretation of quantum mechanics by the double solution theory Louis de BROGLIE'http://www.ensmp.fr/aflb/AFLB-classiques/aflb124p001.pdf
(link has been down for a while)
"This result may be interpreted by noticing that, in the present theory, the particle is defined as a very small region of the wave where the amplitude is very large, and it therefore seems quite natural that the internal motion rythm of the particle should always be the same as that of the wave at the point where the particle is located."
de Broglie's definition of wave-particle duality is of a physical moving particle having an associated physical wave. The particle occupies a very small region of the wave.
"I called this relation, which determines the particle's motion in the wave, "the guidance formula". It may easily be generalized to the case of an external field acting on the particle."
The external field acting on the particle is the aether.
"I think that when this interpretation is further elaborated, extended, and eventually modified in some of its aspects, it will lead to a better understanding of the true coexistence of waves and particles about which actual Quantum mechanics only gives statistical information, often correct, but in my opinion incomplete."
The following further elaborates, extends, and modifies in some of its aspects de Broglie's correct understanding of wave-particle duality.
The galaxy clusters in the following article are not traveling with dark matter. The galaxy clusters are moving through the aether. The galaxy clusters displace aether.
'Hubble Finds Ghostly Ring of Dark Matter'http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hubble/n...ng_feature.html
"Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope got a first-hand view of how dark matter behaves during a titanic collision between two galaxy clusters. The wreck created a ripple of dark mater, which is somewhat similar to a ripple formed in a pond when a rock hits the water."
The 'pond' consists of aether.
The moving 'particles' are the galaxy clusters.
The 'ripple' is an aether displacement wave.
The above is physical evidence of a moving 'particle' having an associated aether displacement wave.
In a double slit experiment the particle travels a single path and enters and exits a single slit. It is the associated aether displacement wave which enters and exits multiple slits. The aether displacement wave creates interference upon exiting the slits. It is this interference which alters the direction the particle travels. Detecting the particle causes a loss of coherence between the particle and its associated aether displacement wave and there is no interference.
