Speculative Mechanics: A Concept for Modeling the Vacuum Medium
Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences, Ul. J. Fiszera 14, 80‐952 Gdansk, Poland
In this paper, a strategy for modeling the vacuum medium, called speculative mechanics, is suggested. This strategy consists of three main steps. In the first step, assumptions about fundamental properties of the vacuum medium are introduced. In the second step, elementary processes appearing in the vacuum medium are described. In the third step, the possibility of the realization of numerical simulations, for instance for elementary particles, is discussed in order to confirm or reset assumptions previously introduced. Here the discussion focuses mainly on the first two steps. The speculation line is based on the main assumption that the vacuum medium consists of four components, which are united and create a stable medium for low‐energy states. It is assumed that some pairs of these components attract each other. For higher energy, some of them can be separated. Then, we obtain two three‐component media, which are constituents of the electron and positron. The following phenomena are discussed in the framework of the multicomponent medium model: stability of charge, stability of particle, spin precession, motion of a particle, mass as a dynamical property of the medium, wave‐function, electromagnetic waves, and interaction of the neutrino with the electron by boson Z. Additionally, modeling of the neutrino, the gravitational field, and the wave‐function are presented in more detail. The speculation line shows there is a chance to attain unification of all elementary particle interactions within such a multicomponent approach.
