Interpretation of Quantum Phenomena

Quantum Phenomena

Reference: Disturbance Theory


This paper summarizes a new interpretation of Quantum mechanics that was introduced in an earlier paper, Quantization & the Atom.



The following postulates form the basis of the interpretation of quantum phenomena being presented here:

  1. The reference point that allows ultimate objectivity in viewing the universe is EMPTINESS.

  2. The UNIVERSE is intrinsically consistent, harmonious and continuous.

These two postulates are derived from the HEART SUTRA of Buddha. They support the perspective of “continuum of substance”.



The substance of this universe may be divided into two major categories:

(1) MATERIAL-SUBSTANCE – This is the structured aspect of substance. The smallest material-particle having the simplest structure is the hydrogen atom.  Atoms acquire greater substantial-ness by growing in size. They acquire more complex structures by combining in various ways as molecules and aggregates. The substantial-ness of material-substance is measured in terms of INERTIA.

(2) FIELD-SUBSTANCE – This is the non-structured aspect of substance that starts as a wave of disturbance. This wave congeals into greater substantial-ness as it follows paths of smaller and smaller radius. This leads to a pattern similar to a “whirlpool”. The substantial-ness increases as one approaches the center of this whirlpool formation.  The electromagnetic spectrum provides the progression of substantial-ness of field-substance. The substantial-ness of field-substance is measured in terms of QUANTIZATION.



It may be pure speculation to say that substance starts with disturbance in emptiness; but it is valid to associate basic substance with disturbance; because, at lower quantization, the wave characteristics dominate. The particle characteristics come into picture with increasing quantization, which parallels the increasing frequency of electromagnetic spectrum.

Quantization increases as the disturbance follows a curved path of decreasing radius. Here we have the scenario of galaxy-like whirlpool formation, where quantization is increasing from periphery towards the center. Such a formation may apply to the atom, where maximum quantization at the center converges to form a “solid” nucleus. The ultimate quantization of field-particle thus leads to the formation of a material-particle. For material-particles, increasing quantization appears as increasing inertia.

Any particle with a quantization less than that of the simplest atom is a field-particle. Thus, electrons, protons and neutrons are all field-particles. The stand-alone electron may be regarded as having a whirlpool formation that has yet to form a solid nucleus at the center to give birth to an atom.


The Force Characteristics

Charge has the same significance for field-substance, as mass has for material-substance. The difference is that charge is animated and dynamic, whereas, mass is structured. The field and material substances exist in equilibrium with each other. Here charge provides animation to the structure of mass.

The force characteristic, such as,  electromagnetic and nuclear forces, originate at the level of field-substance. Their range is limited. But the force characteristic of gravitation appears at the level of material-substance. The range of gravitation is unlimited.

There seems to an inverse relationship between quantization/inertia and natural velocity of a particle. The higher is the inertia, the lesser is the natural velocity. The lower is the quantization, the greater is the natural velocity. The black hole at the center of a galaxy has so much inertia that it anchors the whole galaxy. Its natural velocity may be considered almost zero on an absolute scale. Light, on the other hand, has such a low level of quantization that it’s velocity is almost infinite.



The electrical lines of force were postulated by Faraday to originate and terminate at “centers” called charges. Such charges could be light years apart, and yet be connected by a line of force. [See Faraday: Thoughts on Ray Vibrations].

Each point on the electrical line of force, however, is surrounded by a circular magnetic lines of force. This is like the whirlpool formation mentioned earlier. Here the whirlpool is described by the magnetic lines of force, and the center line of the whirlpool is described by the electrical lines of force. The two ends of the electrical line of force ends at two charges. The quantization at each point of electrical line of force is provided by the radius of the magnetic line of force surrounding it. Thus there is a gradient of quantization along the line of force from one end to the other.

The gravitational lines of force between two material particles also carry a gradient of quantization. This force characteristic of this quantization pertains to the whole atom and not to parts within it as do electromagnetic and nuclear force characteristics. The lines of force representing whirlpool formation of the two material particles bend away from each other. But they interact with each other by aligning with each other. This results in material particles as centers of force being dragged toward each other. This is gravitation.


Uncertainty in Measurements

A decreasing gradient of quantization means that the field-substance is gradually becoming less substantial. Therefore, it’s characteristics of space and time are simultaneously becoming less substantial. A consolidated point location at a higher quantization may expand into a flimsy region at a lower quantization.

This explanation seems to underlie the Heisenberg principle of uncertainty. Heisenberg is basically saying that a point location no longer remains a point at lower quantization; instead it spreads out producing uncertainty.

But this uncertainty arises in reference to material-point. The lower quantization has its own point location as a field-point. In other words, the uncertainty disappears in reference to the field-point. Thus, we may account for uncertainty when we look within the atom by accounting for the decrease in quantization.
