THE LUXON HYPOTHESIS
There is an unambiguous physical extrapolation, according
to which the most elementary particles within tardyons have the velocity of
light (Sexl/Raab/Streeruwitz 1980, page 72):
The smaller and the more elementary a formation is, the more the velocity of the
particles contained in it is near the velocity of light, the more luxon-like
the particles become! The smaller the considered space is, the bigger is the part
of the rest energy of the oxygen atom which is based on a part of the movement energy.
The De Broglie-wavelength of the particles in the atomic core must be approximately
of the same size as the core diameter, because the particle is limited to the space
of the atomic core. In case of the oxygen core considered above, the wavelength
for the velocity v
of the core particles follows:
Thus, the particles in the atomic core move with a fifth of the velocity of
light! This can be attributed to the small dimension of the core. The smaller a
formation is, the bigger are, according to the de-Broglie-relation
the impulses of the particles contained in it. The atomic core is therefore
not a static order of proton and neutrons at all, but a very dynamic formation
in which the particles are whirling confusedly around.
The thermal energy of a body, i.e. its internal movement, increases the rest energy
of a body. I state: Rest energy is not an independent form of energy at all, as
chemical or electrical energy is. It is a form of kinetic energy.
Molecules, atoms, protons, quarks, subquarks -, the smaller, the more elementary
the particles are, the smaller the proportion of rest energy, respectively, which
is responsible for its entire energy, becomes, and the bigger the proportion of
energy which originates from the inner movement, becomes.
From this I extrapolate the most elementary particles in the atom are
completely without rest energy.
