Here I share a little brainstorm I made after having read Einstein's article On Quantum Theory of Radiation from March 1917. I am perennially interested in physical models of the atom, how atoms possibly consummate light and electrical events and so on. Although his mathematical ideas were useful and revolutionary, I think Bohr's quantum jumping concept was figurative. And now our models of the atom are mathematical. In enjoy certain equations and like to think how I can provide a physical interpretation for them.
E = hv is a microcosm of E = mc2. E = mc2 is macro. Einstein's equation subsumes all the atoms of the Universe.
E refers to an object's capacity to do the work of light. This capacity is based in an object's fundamental connection to all the atoms of the Universe. A single Hydrogen atom's (or proton's) capacity to work light is rooted in its fundamental connection to every single other H atom of the Universe. Einstein seems to think direction is important and this is essential to understanding the atom. All atoms have a mutual line of sight, so to speak via via this mediator. All atoms face all others.
This capacity is proportional to m. M refers to the permanent # of existing connections rooted in the atom. The atoms are connected each to the other by a fundamental object that mediates light and gravity, (call it the EM Rope) the same from which the atom assumes its form . All these objects converge and crisscross to form the atom, and the atom is constantly reforming itself by these. Fusion increases the number of fundamental connections an atom has. Or if an object say a star is comprised of many atoms and molecules this increases its permanent number of connections and makes it more resistant to push or pull mediated by encircling objects.
C squared refers to the atom's ability to communicate light with all atoms via the mediators inherently connecting them all. So an atom can potentially signal (emit) or be signaled to (absorb) along these mediators described by m. This is why c is squared. This work helps maintain tension between all atoms so that they have inertia and gravitational potential.
When I get to Planck-Einstein's equation and the way it is divided I come into some blind spots. A quantum refers to a double stranded link of this fundamental entity called thread. But how does emission and absorption happen? What are all the parameters?
The Planck-Einstein equation, E = hv is a microcosm of Einstein's. This equation basically refers to an atoms ability to work together with the very objects which connects it to all others as well as the extraneous ones crossing through. It does this via a set of objects protruding from it's proton. These are two stranded double helical electron threads in my Hairy Head model of the atom. They are probably about half the # of permanent existing connections to all atoms it has established of itself per atom. So there may always be a disproportionate ratio of EM Ropes to electron threads superposing at all the locations around the nucleus. The atom is a double star-like pattern of thread. An atom is like a little star. In totality the ratio of EM Rope to electron thread is about 2/1 for each atom (but note there are always extraneous EM Ropes crossing through an atom so this ratio is idealized). For every 2 EM Ropes converging upon a proton there is one electron thread emanating. I think this is significant and can be used to explain emission (spontaneous and stimulated) as well as absorption as well as electricity, photoelectric effect, etc,
Around the nucleus sets of these electron threads and EM Ropes can temporarily align and superpose perfectly so as to establish a critical anomaly. I call this Critical Ethereal Thread Anomaly. This is why I describe the atom as a double star like pattern. This critical anomaly establishes a potential for the atom to signal in emission or to be signaled from other atoms in absorption. Emission and absorption probably depends upon a ratio of EM Ropes to electron threads or vice versa at any given location.
Generally in the E2 - E1 relation it seems to me that when an atom is in E2 that means that a set of electron threads are outnumbering the EM Ropes at critically anomalous locations. This is an excited state. This enables the electron threads to temporarily take charge of the EM Ropes and torque them, signaling in emission and a reaction happens. Once this happens the electron threads relocate and reorganize. In higher numbered atomic elements the atoms have been so crushed together in fusion that there are some locations where electron threads naturally outnumber EM Ropes in this critical anomaly and this makes it resistant to photoelectric effect because in order for irradiation (ionizing radiation) to occur perhaps EM Ropes have to take control of the electron threads so as to spin adjacent ones out to greater lengths.
In quantum electrodynamics we have this idea that the "EM Field" has an E2 - E1 relation. So perhaps at some other locations around the nucleus a superposing bunch of EM Ropes outnumber electron threads 2 to 1 in the critical anamoly. This sets up the atom for absorption. The EM Ropes take charge of the electron thread and torque it CW or CCW. And the fractions could be different at different locations pursuant to this critically anomaly. And this could have something to do with frequency. At an E3 favoring the EM Ropes, they could outnumber in higher ratio and vice versa favoring electron threads. In a dynamic mode this is all made more complex because if nucleons rotate electron threads would always be realigning at different rates. And perhaps a critical number can only be aligned at once and this forces extra electron threads to react perpendicular to the superposing line (in a fanning mechanism). And from here it is a game of chance. If at an anomalous location all the electron threads are turning in the same direction there may be a spontaneous emission. If they are not then they may need to be stimulated by the outnumbered EM Ropes so as to get them all torquing in the same direction so as to enact coherent light.
Quantum Jump is also called atomic electron transition.
I think Bohr was using analogy to illustrate an abstract mathematical concept. In order for an electron to literally jump or even orbit around a nucleus an object would have to be referenced in place of of the word electron and some object or set of objects would have to connect that electron to the nucleus. But even though that is how electron is usually taught at elementary levels this is not at all clear. And Bohr never took his own illustrations literally. Electron to me references a primal or basic light or electrical event mediated by a superposing set of fundamental subatomic objects. It is a sort of anomaly. Almost impossible to explain. I call it Critical Ethereal Thread Anomaly. If you want call it elementary charge.
This event never happens at the same make believe conceptual position twice in a row, and it is impossible to predict precisely where it will happen next, thus a more modern conception is electron cloud (a cloud of probabilities where a primal event will happen in reference to the nucleus). So physicists are led to believe or simply know better that electron does not motion, i.e. assume a succession of locations. If electron references a motion or event it would be irrational to think that this motion assumes a succession of locations (i.e. moves). Motion cannot possibly move. Electron is a motion, one of the simplest possible motions of the Universe. It always happens. To explain how it happens one will have to think critically, make profound assumptions about the atom and the entire Universe, study a bunch of literature about experiments, etc.
The E2 - E1 = hv is simple, idealized and a completely different context than Einstein's equation. Energy refers to an objects capacity to do work. A decrease in energy means that some sort of object transitions from consummating more of these primal light events to less per unit time. And this translates along the mediators connecting all atoms to longer wavelengths (really linklengths), since the mediators are being turned CW or CCW less frequently. And the object can be induced in many ways to do the opposite.
If atom is the quantum system let’s just say that 'at' E2 the atom actively consummates two gazillion light events per unit time. At E1 the atom consummates one gazillion light events per unit time. If the quantum system is the superposing alignment of mediators, it would consummate 2 events per unit time at E2 as opposed to 1 at E1. This is all idealized. Each atom has its own complex rhythm of consummating these light events. How it does this is what I'm mainly interested in. But its difficult to imagine.
In electricity when they say electrons are flowing this is crazy. It's more about consummating these primal events across a set of atoms. In order to do this something or some object may have to be forced out of the atom in order to establish these events further away from the nucleus. And this translates along a line of mediators as shorter wavelengths, more pressure, push, etc. Or perhaps in a collision of atoms something temporarily lines up in superposition so as to consummate more of these events.
There are probably thousands of ways of doing this for example shining a high frequency light source on an atom. This may may reel something from the atom so that more and more of these events can happen further and further away from the atom. But this is not very efficient. Or rotating a magnet next to a wire. Or atoms being crushed together or colliding at the core of a star.
Well this is sort of how I see things at this moment.
