MATTER IS MADE OF WAVES
" The material Universe is solely made out of Aether "
by Gabriel LaFreniere. The Blog.
This spherical standing wave system is an electron.
Actually, it is not "standing" but rather moving as a result of the Doppler effect.
Phase opposition areas appear in red. This method allows zero amplitude zones to be displayed in black.
Then it becomes possible to enhance the stunning phase wave, which is clearly visible on the right.
Mr. Jocelyn Marcotte's equations are fundamental.
They were well known in the math literature, yet they had never been related to the electron.
x = 2 * pi * distance / lambda
y stands for amplitude.
The amplitude singularity for x = 0 is normalized to y = 1 for phase and to y = 0 for quadrature.
Matter is made of waves. Nothing else exists but the aether. Yes, I realize that this may sound quite weird. However I know a lot about optics, waves and physics and this is why I strongly affirm the wave nature of matter.
For example, one should answer this simple question: how does a photon work, from a mechanical point of view? Surely, nobody ever proposed an acceptable explanation. The point is that, as long as this question remains unanswered, nobody is entitled to believe that photons really exist. Up to now, it was just a convenient word hiding one's ignorance. Additionally, there is absolutely no evidence of photons inside radio waves. There is no evidence of electric and magnetic fields inside them either because they may simply induce such fields inside matter as well without any need for carrying them all the way. Finally, the true nature of light, radio waves, electric and magnetic fields, gravity, energy, fields of force, electrons and matter itself is still totally unknown.
Despite our immense knowledge, we are still standing in front of the Unknown. The goal is to find the truth. So our first step should be to propose hypotheses and examine them.
Actually, this web site does explain all from a mechanical point of view. Nobody else ever proposed so many acceptable hypotheses. There are many revolutionary assumptions throughout these pages. If you are unable to propose some of your own, do not reject my ideas simply because they sound ridiculous. You should examine them first. And if you disagree with them, you need an acceptable reason.
RIPPLES ON WATER
One may produce ripples on water by throwing a pebble into the calm waters of a lake. This produces outgoing waves.
One may also produce ingoing waves by means of a large hoop. They culminate at the center and then become outgoing waves. So they must meet ingoing waves.
The following animation shows that the superposition of ingoing and outgoing waves produce a well-known structure: standing waves.
This concentric spherical standing wave system was first proposed by Mr. Milo Wolff.
The Doppler effect.
If the hoop is slowly moved forward while producing such standing waves, they become compressed forward and dilated backward. This is the Doppler effect, which acts in the same way on ingoing and outgoing waves.
This produces the very special wave shown below. Let's call it a "moving standing wave", because this wave system truly moves.
The spherical non concentric Doppler system.
Here, it seems immobile as seen from inside its frame of reference; but actually it is moving to the right.
Please note that the correct device should also undergo the Lorentz Transformations.
That is, the circular hoop should transform to a squashed ellipse and it should undulate vertically along the displacement axis.
The movie clip below shows the accurate process in a 2-D space:
I used an artificial 3-D effect in order to produce a more intuitive view. However, unlike waves on a flat surface, this moving standing wave system rather extends in a three-dimensional space. It is made out of spherical waves. It is represented in its own moving frame of reference, where it does not seem to move. This is all about inertia. But in fact, it is a highly mobile system and it may also change its speed and direction.
This wave shows all of the electron's properties.
It is unlikely that this wave is known, else it would have been systematically mentioned as an example to illustrate the Lorentz transformations. Indeed, it conforms to them in a spectacular way and even allows the theory of Relativity to be explained. For instance it shows vertical parallel zones traveling toward the right. This is the "phase wave", which was apparently discovered by Louis de Broglie. Each zone indicates places where the Lorentz t' time is the same, as a result of the time shift.
Even better, this wave exhibits all of the electron's properties. Everything indicates that it actually is an electron.
This wave is an electron.
Judge for yourself:
This wave contains energy. When immobile, this energy is constant, which explains quanta. Otherwise, its energy increases according to the gamma factor: this was predicted by Lorentz. Moreover, this wave can move. Its speed and direction do not normally change, which explains Newton's inertia. But they can change because of the radiation pressure. This leads to mechanical properties exerted from a distance. This wave also exhibits a spin as a result of its phase rotation.
This wave spectacularly conforms to the Lorentz transformations. It seems at rest as seen by an observer moving along with it. It even seems to act and react in every frame of reference as if it were at rest. From its perspective, another standing wave system seems to undergo the Doppler effect only according to its relative speed. This explains Relativity.
Thus, the presence of a "solid" particle is no longer needed to explain matter. It is even excluded. An electron isn't a metal marble covered in chrome. An electron cannot be made of matter. This site shows that it is rather matter which is solely made out of electrons.
NO AMAZING INVENTIONS
You will not find here any indication that a better knowledge of the wave nature of matter may lead to some amazing inventions. Clearly, all of matter's properties have been already discovered. The final touch was just to explain why matter behaves like this.
Unfortunately, I could not find any practical idea based on my discovery.
No, there is no new sort of energy which could be cleaner or cheaper then petroleum.
And no, I did not find the secret of levitation. I must be very clear here: if you one are impassioned of esotericism and the paranormal, you are politely invited to go elsewhere. Here, one speaks quite simply about physics and mechanics.
This site contains 33 pages explaining matter and all physical phenomena.

Graphics made since Feb. 2004 have been improved thanks to programming information from Mr. Philippe Delmotte, from Lille, France.
Mr. Delmotte also invented in June 2005 a fantastic new computerized virtual medium to study waves.
A Fantastic Wave Simulator!
Mr. Philippe Delmotte invented his amazing wave algorithm in June 2005. He finally released this first English version in May 2009:
In a near future, those wave simulators will become a must for opticians and acousticians. It is indeed a powerful laboratory allowing one to observe and study all wave phenomena. I am quite sure that it will especially become unavoidable for studying matter waves. It is a well known fact that matter exhibits wave properties. In spite of that, up to now, very few people realized that matter waves cannot be just an analogy. Waves are waves. Here, one is dealing with standing waves, wave fronts, amplitude, frequency, wavelength, interference patterns, and so on. The goal is to show that regular waves can have some influence on spherical standing waves. Thus, considering that the electron is a pulsating wave center, two of them put together are surely capable of influencing each other. This is all about Newton's action and reaction law.
You may uncompress the file in any directory. Click the image, then click the "New Project" icon on the upper left corner to clear the wave area. Click the concentric wave icon to obtain a pulsating wave center. You may change its position, amplitude, wavelength, etc. You may also add a second one to observe interferences. There is also a linear emitter (observe the Fresnel-Fraunhofer diffraction), a circular emitter (producing circular standing waves in the center), a parabola, etc.
This is much more interesting than flavorless equations. I made a lot of similar programs and I succeeded in showing that waves are surprisingly unpredictable. Their "personality" is mainly dependent on the medium properties. That is why we need to explore many wave algorithms. However, I already made my choice: in order to achieve the electron amplification, the aether should be made of granules repelling one another. In my picture, it must be compressible.
