Plans for UFT393

These are to extend the zitterbewegung theory of UFT392 to macroscopic electrodynamics. The first note will review the results of previous UFT papers on this subject, notably UFT170 and UFT340 and similar papers and also the summary in “Principles of ECE, Volume Two”. The basic idea is simple, that the vacuum causes the electron to “shiver”, to “zitter”, so that r in the potential energy is replaced by r + delta r. The shivering of the electron in the H atom gives a very precise theoretical description of the Lamb shift in H. The Lamb shift cannot be explained by the Dirac equation as is well known. The Lamb shift is a clear and precise demonstration that the vacuum can influence one electron, so the vacuum can influence circuits as in UFT311, UFT321, UFT364, UFT382 and UFT383. The idea is to extent the zitterbewegung theory from the one electron to the macroscopic level, and to calculate the spin connection. The latter was used in UFT311 to explain the Ide circuit exactly, a rare thing in physics. This circuit was replicated in UFT364, and new circuits designed in UFT382 and UFT383. I wish to extend the zitterbewegung methodology to the whole of electrodynamics, and demonstrate the conservation of trace, scalar and vector antisymmetry. The shivering of the electron was first inferred by Schroedinger in 1930, using the Dirac equation. The theory was used in the late forties by Bethe at Cornell to explain the Lamb shift, observed by Lamb and Retherford at Columbia. It was greatly developed with quantum electrodynamics, but at the cost of introducing adjustables that cannot be observed, such as virtual particles, dimensional regularization, sums involving very large numbers of terms, and renormalization of infinities. So Feynman at Cornell described his own QED as hocus pocus, and Dirac described it as an ugly theory. In the ECE theory these adjustables and hocus pocus are not used. Adjustables were scornfully described by Wolfgang Pauli as “not even wrong”, because they produce a non Baconian brew. Pauli was a precise, sceintific, thinker. QED has a lot of trouble descrbing the interaction of one electron with the proton, so it is useless for circuits and macroscopic electrodynamics.
