Title Author Date
Failure to demystify C, David Aug 30, 2006
I'm afraid this attempt to demystify physics by removing the wave aspects from massed particles is all wrong.

For one thing, if physicists had it all wrong for massed entities like protons and electrons, then the solution of the Schrodinger wave equation for the hydrogen atom would not conform to experimental results. But it does. That demolishes the thesis of this entire essay.

But the author and his fellow physicists make a fundamental error from the start: what they observe with electrons, photons, and other fundamental physical entities is not wave-particle duality. It is wave-particle non-duality! Wave-particle duality is what is observed in the macroscopic world. The physics community is looking at the problem from a philosophically backwards perspective.
