Enigmas and Dilemmas

One of the two radiating waves of a hydrogen atom shown at the left is stable, while the other is unstable. Try to guess which one is stable. This is a plot of an eigenvector.

Did you pick the top wave at the left as being stable? It does conform to Einstein's theory which limits the velocity of all waves to no greater than c, the speed of light in a vacuum. However, the shape of this field wave continually changes shape with time and never reaches a steady state. This is a conflict, since the hydrogen atom is known to have stable states of harmonic motion. This graphic is illustrated and discussed in "The Secret of Gravity".

The lower wave maintains its shape with time. The wave continually rotates, and it is therefore a harmonic wave with the radial distance between successive wavefronts equal to one wavelength.. This resolves the above conflict by having a steady state, but it creates another dilemma. This wave appears to be spherical but it has no closed curves! Electromagnetic waves are presently assumed to propagate in the form of in a radial direction while having a spherical wavefront. There is some evidence to support this belief, which you may be able to sense from this graphic. However, that is not the caes, since these waves are not closed curves. Electromagnetic waves travel not only with a radial velocity, but also a transverse velocity. In both of these scenarios, the wave's radial velocity propagates at the speed of light, but in this new model, the transverse wave increases in velocity as the radius increases and can move much faster than the speed of light! There is solid evidence from measurements that confirm that transverse waves do move faster than the speed of light, as presented in "Secrets of the Atom". Therefore, the commonly accepted interpretation of Maxwell's equations is flawed.
