Posted By: AtomIf you arrange charges in a sort of geodesic sphere structure with electrons prominent to the outside and positrons slightly sunk (sort of like the dimples in a golf ball), and you add one more positive charge to the sphere, then an external electron in space (all of this in a simulation of course) will be held at a distance somewhat like the electron in a Hydrogen atom, this means that it (the external electron) is at an orbit height but it does not need to move and that it is held by the sphere (if it gets further away it sees a positive charge more than the differential repulsive charge and so is drawn back to the orbit height).
Posted By: AngusI get it now.
Posted By: AtomFor some more intrigue to a wild model, if you try and construct an electron positron geodesic sphere you end up with a number of pucker points (because you cannot cover a sphere with balls perfectly) and these pucker points can become sort of anchor points for a positron electron spike (sort of like the prongs on a sea mine). These can be either positive at the tip or negative at the tip and 3,6 or 9 particle long. Now here is the cute bit, they can then link to other protons or neutrons and the repulsive forces are just a bit less than the link forces. Accordingly the predicted stable atoms are in fairly good agreement with reality.
Posted By: AtomWhat I found intriguing was the idea that if the big bang only produced positrons and electrons then they could self form structures (initially hexagons) just like carbon can form fullerene and cnt.
The only condition is to assume that electrons and positrons can sit next to each other without annihilating.
Posted By: AtomSome University in the UK did an atomic mass plot using the theory and the fit was astounding compared to the other known models.
Posted By: AtomPerhaps most importantly it suggests that any model or theory is only good for a while.
