The Quantum Bicycle Society (or Quicycle) is a group of free thinkers who aim to throw light onto things that matter, and to continue our mutual education beyond the post-doctoral level. We aim to develop mind-tools to enable human thinking, both inward into the inner workings and structure of the “elementary” particles of the standard model, as well as outward into the cosmos and its workings.
uicycle is dedicated to the principles of:
- Furthering Pure Science
- Science that is analytic, testable, calculable, and subject to the scientific method
- Science that can be used to imagine new materials, devices, and systems
- The most solid scientific proof of all manifests in bringing a concept from thought into material reality
- Enabling thinking which could otherwise not be thought about at all
- Elementary particles are not assumed to be axiomatic
- Sub-quantum mechanics and particle structures are investigated and elucidated
- Excluding the untestable
- Many worlds, hypothesized particles, infinities, unphysical (or unobservable) concepts not subject to experiment are not contemplated
- Extra dimensions beyond those of the fabric of spacetime are avoided
THE NEXT QUANTUM LEAP!
This first one () took 100 years to solve — from 1897 to 1997!
1. The electron‘s substructure, that gives rise to its properties, is proposed:
2. The electron’s charge is CALCULATED using this model
3. The physical reason and calculation for g-2 (the electron’s anomalous magnetic moment)
4. Why and how the electron has both a particle and wave nature
5. The nature of charge
6. The quantization of charge
7. The relativistic basis of quantum mechanics
8. The nature of and reason for quantum collapse
9. The way Relativity emerges as a consequence of photon and particle structure
10. Subatomic particle structure and symmetry
11. How protons and neutrons bind to form nuclei
12. Why some nuclei are stable and others are radioactive
13. The physics behind the Pauli Exclusion Principle
14. The reason for no magnetic monopoles
15. The reason for the flatness of the universe
16. The nature of the Poincaré stresses
17. The topology of electron spin & zitterbewegung
18. The nature and mechanism of paramagnetism vs ferromagnetism
(Yes, we know. This is not a small thing!)
(This is not many small things!)
An electron is formed when a photon makes two revolutions per wavelength, tracing a torus-shaped double-loop rotation in momentum space, in order to comprise the stable, elementary particle.
A Quicyclist is a person who generally accepts that, from atoms up, the accepted models of electromagnetism, matter, and gravity give a reasonably good description of the world around us, if not yet a fully complete one.
We consider that, while the standard models of the things that matter in subatomic particle physics, as well as our understanding of gravity and the structure of the universe, have contributed much of value, many anomalies and unexplained phenomena persist. Modern physics has continued to build upon the axiomatic existence of the subatomic particle without considering from where its properties emerge.
We intend to build upon what has been learned from the standard model, and in recognizing where and why its limits arise, to overcome them and extend our understanding. We accomplish this by delving into both the very large and the very small. On the one hand, we examine the level of sub-quantum mechanics, where particle structures are investigated and elucidated. On the other, we probe the large-scale structures and origin of the Universe. Our aim is to tie together and also extend the elements of the standard model. In this pursuit, we warmly invite other scientists to similarly engage in public in this manner.
It is time to pursue deeper levels of clarity and understanding, and to find the science that works, based upon established principles, experimental results, and thinking that makes sense.
And if, through this process, we find ourselves in the vicinity of Hilbert’s 6th, all the better.
Quicycle meetings take place via video conference, and are recorded for posting on this site, on a private area, or on other online venues such as Youtube. All meetings are open to all Quicycle members.
Presentations are given by invitation. Quicycle members can submit a proposal for a presentation and invitations will be offered accordingly.
Following the presentation, a second session will convene immediately, which will be a QA&D session — Questions, Answers, and Discussion — on the presentation. This session will also be recorded, and it constitutes one part of our public peer review process. (see Videos)
The Quicycle Society presentation and peer review process may lead to the publication of an associated paper on this website. (See Journal) However, Quicycle members may also submit a paper for publication without that paper first being offered as a presentation.
