When I began presenting Elementary Wave Theory to meetings of the American Physical Society in 2010, I was surprised that the main objection many listeners had was that Elementary Waves convey zero energy.
Critics claimed that zero energy waves could not possibly do anything. They ignore the fact that Schrödinger waves convey zero energy. Schrödinger waves convey probability amplitudes for energy. They carry Hamiltonian operators. But the waves themselves do not push or pull particles. The waves do no work, because they are zero energy waves.
Our concept of an Elementary Wave simply expands the idea of a Schrödinger wave packet, to include the context of that wave packet, which is a larger Elementary Wave traveling in the opposite direction. My concept of an Elementary Wave including a Schrödinger wave, has evolved over time, and is tricky to understand. I explain it in an 18 minute YouTube video. That video references an article published in a peer reviewed Physics journal, and another article in a peer reviewed Mathematics journal, that are loaded with equations and diagrams. But the video just mentioned contains zero equations, because I don’t want lay people to vomit.
The paths of Feynman’s “Path Integral approach” also contain zero energy. When people say with such confidence that “every wave carries energy,” what they should say is, “Every wave other than Schrödinger waves and Feynman diagrams carries energy.”
If you follow me down the Rabbit Hole into the world of TEW, you will discover that physics today limits its attention to that which has mass and energy. They ignore the other half of physical Nature, that has neither mass nor energy. That is where TEW lives. In other words, Nature as pictured by TEW is twice as large as Nature consisting only of matter-energy. Because it focuses on neither mass nor energy, TEW is considered to be low in prestige among the sciences.
Many visitors to this website point out that we are opening the door to a spiritual world. Many visitors interested in bio-energetics, Chinese medicine based on que, Indian medicine (ayurveda) based on prana, and a wide variety of spiritual traditions, tell me they are enthusiastic about TEW.
I have a spiritual life. I don’t talk about it here because my view is that we do best if we keep our natural sciences separate from spirituality. I enjoy learning about Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism and Native American spirituality. My own tradition is Episcopal, a denomination in which I am ordained.
