In a previous thread, I confessed to having a 'possible' explanation regarding the bias of matter over anti-matter:

However, as the universe was expanding so fast, some of them separated beyond c ..... and this really is key; Imagine two such electrons e1 & e2, undergoing superluminal divorce - However, this may not be the case for their corresponding positrons (p1 & p2).
eg;- e1 & p2, e2 & p1 may well be relatively local ...... now here's the big "IF" biggrin.gif

If an electron - positron pair are just mere points within a timespace hoop of specific rotational direction (one in which the rotation goes from electron to positron) - could it be, that from the frame of the electrons - both local positrons appear to be electrons, brought about by means of a rotational inversion, created via superluminal departure of their electron twins? blink.gif - This type of mechanism might hold true for all particles created within the inflationary period of the universe!

Wow - that feels better ..... getting that codswallop off me chest. laugh.gif

So there we have it - half the electrons in our 'section' of the universe may be simply 'backwards' positrons.

In our observation matter is favored over antimatter but the mechanism underlying our observation would not necessarily work in the same direction in the early universe. Future determination of this mechanism, together with cosmological calculations will tell us how our measurement fits into the matter dominance puzzle.

I do remember seeing something similar here.

I was in the french quarter on fat tuesday and I had misplaced my van. I was under the influence of a bunch of cocaine, 1/2 quart of Patron, about ten of these little yellow speed goodies [never knew the name], and probably five fatties of primo columbo. The quarter was shutting down [the only time it does during the year] and I couldn't find my friggin van. My body felt like I'd dropped a tab of acid but my head felt like I was sober. Does that qualify as a pharmaceutical stability analyst?

I looked it up. Sounds like a high tech drug screen. Just kidding. Sounds interesting. My tale was from my 'continually stoned phase' which ended about 25 years ago. After I retired I tried living on the bud for about a year but it was to much work and onset of old age was already making me stupid enough.

Holy smokes! I was picturing you as a refined gentleman and here you were at the famous Louisiana accelerator. No wonder you’re such a fan of SR. You’ve experienced time dilation firsthand. I’ve only had limited alcohol and marijuana once. That’s all I could smuggle into the psychiatric ward. Too bad you weren’t a male psychiatric 'nut-house' nurse.

At first thought this is what I get. Inflation is GR working on a quantum field in a special way where the pressure term is dominant so the inflating field is a false vacuum of negative pressure and constant energy density. Read this for the Guth easy to understand version.

http://web.mit.edu/physics/news/physicsatm...2_cosmology.pdf

Leptogenesis is believed to have occurred after inflation [Guth explains how the false vacuum provides all the stuff the early universe was made of]. So if you could place leptogenesis before inflation ended you would still need to explain why inflation separated matter/antimatter asymmetrically. Not so sure I made sense.

Hey, you're right - read the Guth stuff and this wiki job ..... so like, inflation was over and done, long before any particle other than Higgs had arrived - thanks, should have done my homework before blathering .... next time I spam this nonsense, I'll omit the "might hold true for all particles created within the inflationary period of the universe!" bit. laugh.gif

That aside - clearly, due to spatial expansion, many particles (and growing) now exist beyond our light horizon/observable universe. I wonder what the percentages were during the first 10 - 20 seconds after the BB (from the perspective of a newly born electron?).

Cheers brucie boy.

Well, we've now dispensed with "inflation" as it totally doesn't apply. The 'concept' I'm attempting to promote here (and as a spammer, elsewhere laugh.gif ) to account for the apparent asymmetry, involves a purely speculative mechanism, whereby the counter-particle of a >c removed one, locally exhibits a reversed state - on the basis of both being but one overall 'structure/geometry' .... aspects of which exist in higher dimensional space, and as such are able to breach this otherwise impenetrable barrier. In addition, one which also has an intrinsic directional 'wave-flow' - possibly what we term "charge" (excuse the ad-lib terminology, I'm only a friggin' pharma' scientist after all laugh.gif).

Core to this actual reversal, is a Lorentz transformational process involving a hyperspatial wavefront, as it arcs between two points of separation exceeding c, correspondingly producing a negative value, but only for (in the case of the positron) as it's receiving this uni-directional 'flow' originating from the electron.

ps;- and you think you have trouble making sense! laugh.gif

You're not a crank. Cranks are folks who can't roundfile an idea in the face of having been shown, or discovered, it's the wrong approach. I would say, at this time, I don't understand what you're trying to convey [based on your description last night]. I thought I was getting your idea when inflation was involved. The wiki page placed lepto/barygenesis at reheating just when the inflating false vacuum finished rolling down the potential to true vacuum. The idea is, I think, the potential oscillates around the minimum while leptons and quarks are created from the oscillating quantum field created during inflation. Something like that. So it seems something happened, around then, which led to the asymetry. Look at this one:

It's pretty hard to understand all the details. We're not particle physicists or cosmologists. Since I can't review all the detail I'll look at the discussion and conclusion and pick out the key stuff to review. One key thing is the BAU, baryon asymmetry of the universe, was consummated during the electroweak phase transition 10e-11 second to 10e-5 second and temperature 100 Gev to 1 Gev [quark, gluon, lepton W +/-, Z, Higgs].

Electroweak phase transition LHC.

http://www.jrank.org/space/pages/2330/elec...transition.html

And the following is the key section of the conclusion section of the paper.

"In this paper we have studied resonant leptogenesis in the MLFV framework where it
is assumed that the charged-lepton and the neutrino Yukawa couplings are the only
irreducible sources of lepton flavour symmetry breaking. In such a framework, the
heavy RH neutrinos are highly degenerate in mass, and their decays in the early
Universe may give rise to the observed baryon asymmetry through the mechanism of
resonant leptogenesis."

Also

"It has been explicitly demonstrated
how the observed matter–antimatter asymmetry in the Universe may be successfully explained
by thermal resonant leptogenesis at the electroweak scale, independently of any non-zero
primordial baryon asymmetry."

So they'rer basically saying the BAU, beginning from null asymmetry, can be a result of the decay of large degenerate mass neutrinos during the electroweak phase transition. They also expect to test this hypothesis at the LHC.

Something like that. Haha. Might even fit what you had in your mind.

Fivedoughnut,

Exactly the right question, in the topic name.

In Diracs interpretation,positrons that are pairs of electrons with positive energies filling our world, would have returned to and disappeared in negative energy sea without the electron to properly seal the hole in it ->which is positron. So the hole ( positron) disappears by other means, perhaps by spreading the hole out over all Dirac sea or by closing via deformation of negative electron energy states that are still there.

Any of such processes must create excited states in Dirac negative energy sea, and it is these states, negative energy perturbations perhaps in -mc^2 to 0 or mc^2 gap over Dirac's unobservable negative energy sea whose lowest energy states are fully filled, perturbations which we collectively experience as vacuum.
