Paper Abstract

A new topological study is presented of a semi classical quantized model for the electron, consisting of a circularly bound monochromatic photon. This model for the electron includes a topologically created elementary charge, point‐like behavior in high‐energy scattering events, half‐integral spin, and the magnetic moment of the electron. We will also present evidence for the causes of: 1) the magnetic moment of the electron, 2) the elementary charge, 3) a binding force (Poincare) which allows a photon to be confined to become and electron, 4) the property of inherent inertial mass in the electron, and 5) Relativity. Within this context we propose that all matter is composed of EM waves, and that Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are the simple result of the behavior of those EM waves. For the most part we will use simple scalar mathematics to support this premise, because most of the problems have relatively simple solutions. However we will also submit that new formulations are needed for field equations.
