The nature of the field

I’ve attempted my first “photon” in the simulation, but am not getting propagation yet, probably because the parameters are not properly set up. I converted the field type to normalized and modified how information is displayed so that permutations of a unitary field can be more readily seen. It occurred to me that the fact that there is no propagation yet means that the simulator is working right–right now the field appears to be dissipating rather than propagating, which one would expect if the twist were not of the correct frequency and initial velocity.

This did get me thinking whether it can be shown that a unitary field can’t be right. If there is a photon in the presence of other photons, are there sufficient degrees of freedom available to represent the total system? In the presence of a strong E or M field? The problem is, though, if we take away the unitary requirement, then there is danger that quantization can be lost since photon E/M twist fields now have an extra degree of freedom (field magnitude). I realized that Maxwell’s equations can be slightly simplified if we assume unitary fields–and I also realized the quantum mechanics representation using multiple oscillators suggests unitary fields.

I did some additional thinking on this and think that unitary fields could work–for example, a high-voltage potential source could emit continuous streams of photons in the form of unitary field twists. Photons intersecting each other would have linear combinations of twist angles, not necessarily summing of EM field magnitudes. If such an approach using unitary fields doesnt work, there’s a very serious problem if magnitudes are allowed–this would provide a mechanism for quantum particles to dissipate.

But the most important reason that fields must be unitary: A twist cannot dissipate in a unitary field!! Unitary magnitude topologically means that there is one structure, and one structure alone, that cannot dissipate–the twist–without causing a field discontinuity. This is profoundly important because it provides the mechanism for quantum quantization. Up to now, there has been no geometrical explanation for quantum oscillators or the e = hv quantization.

I’ll keep cranking on this until an answer shows up.
