|Po8 > Introduction|
We‘ve submitted an introductory paper to BCS/Vigier proceedings, which is expected to be formally available via World Scientitic Publishing in 2013. We‘ve written a simple introduction, and provided a preprint below:
We have proposed an abstraction and physical model that:
We've created a simple 'unification' of waves and particles, and an implicit model that defines fermions as being self-quantizing snapshots of bosonic waves. We have proposed a foundational sub-physical abstraction for the alegbra of waves and interactions, and used a four-wave approach to define fermionic matter networks, from which all physical phenomena can be described. The approach is elegant: it is simple, has wide coverage, and work continues to find results that can (or cannot) be reconciled with currently accepted theory.

Pieces of Eight (“Po8”) is the working title of a project to develop a fundamental representation for physics:
We believe that by looking at the foundations of physics, new insights will lead to many higher-level concepts in physics emerging naturally with minimal complication or intervention. Fundamental symmetries run deep, and a newly-discovered method at this level may be applied to the same fundamental elements as they occur in other phenomena.
For the reader, this approach means taking a step back to appreciate physics from a different perspective; foundations run so deep that they must define what matter is, how it occurs, how it behaves, and anything that contributes to physicality and its measurements. Ideally, a good foundational theory for physics will describe all of these using very similar abstractions.
