A20.- The Autodynamics' Concepts of Mass and Inertia.
The same graduate student mentioned in A19, "AD Derivation, Relativity, Simultaneity and Force", asked the following:
"Does AD explain the concept of mass so eluded by other theories?"
Speaking in the abstract, AD's mass concept combines a "Substratum" and "Motion."
The substratum is the more elemental quantum or "particle"  for which there is no difference between "matter" and "energy", i.e., something indivisible. Motion refers to the movement of that "particle" or "quantum of energy."
The "inertia" of mass is not given by the substratum, or the quantum of energy. The inertia of mass is given by the substratum's quantity of motion. This follows from the definition of inertia: a body's tendency to maintain its state of motion.
The so-called "elemental particles" as we know them (photons, electron, etc.) are only complex structures formed by a substratum in a different state of motion and configuration, and of course, in the number of the elemental substrata involved. These complex
entities are at a ground state that could be exited, or transformed dynamically.
The concept of "inertia" is related directly to the quantity of motion that the substratum possesses.
To change this motion is to interrupt the "particle's internal motion," or from the "exterior," as inertia. Interrupting, changing that motion, we can create particles (super-photons, or Pico-gravitons) faster than light velocity, because this motion exists inside the complex structure or could be created internally.
It is very well known that the Atom absorbs energy by quantum. These quanta of energy that we call photons (X-ray or Gamma radiation) are absorbed by the electrons in the electronic cloud. We said, many times, in private e-mails, that the electrons could be equivalent, after absorbing photons and emitting them later, to a decay process.
Could it be possible that what we call electrons are really complex structures formed by a large quantity of photons, self-assembled as complex structures, as was described above, as a substratum.
The expression "radiation absorption" is very common, but doesn't mean anything by itself, without the AD concept of complex elemental structure. Only a complex structure could absorb energy, radiation, like the electrons in the electronic cloud, and simultaneously, only complex structures could emit quanta of energy.
In AD, energy absorption and mass decay are the principal actions in the Universe. Through this conception, AD opens the gate to a Unified Theory for explaining the elemental forces via a common origin.
The AD Universal Gravitation, founded in the energy absorption and mass decay principle, is only possible if we have complex structures to absorb the energy, the substratum called Pico-Graviton that creating the motion of celestial bodies, places the gravitational field within the AD Mechanics. AD theory includes Quantum Wave Mechanics inside its own equations, explaining Dirac's equation, that is to say, the Quantum Wave Mechanics is no longer useful because its problems could be handled by AD Mechanics. But what is more striking, with the concept of superluminal velocity and minute particles like the Pico-graviton. AD supports the possibility of "communication" between elemental particles. As is known, phenomena of diffraction and others, dubbed as quantum phenomena, seem to show that the electrons or photons know what other electrons are "doing," that is to say, each electron knows the position of the other or knows when it will confront one or two slits. It is interesting to point out the following from the same reference 7:
“Crucially, the measurements on each photon were made almost simultaneously, so that no signal - even one going at the speed of light - could travel the 10 kilometers between the photon. As a result the entanglement of properties could not have arisen from a signal passing from one photon to the other, but instead implies a mysterious link between the two.”
This “mysterious link” is only a prove for a “superluminal signal” passing from one photon to the other. This superluminal connection could be done by the Pico-Graviton.
.- Without becoming entangled in a detailed philosophical analysis, it is possible to say that: "To know is to relate the unknown to the known." Of course this involves a philosophical conception about what is "known" at the beginning, at the starting point. In two thousand five hundred years the problem has not been resolved, and probably will remain unresolved after many more hundreds of years.
From the scientific point of view, as scientific knowledge is Historical knowledge, the first proposition is accepted.
One simple and classical example could be useful. Formerly (in antiquity) "heat" was described as a "fluid" that could be transferred from one body to another. Scientific researchers discovered soon that heat is the body particle motion, that is, particle's kinetic energy. To relate heat, the unknown, to "particle motion" or "kinetic energy," the known, yield the solution to understanding what heat is. We can say today that we "know" what the heat is.
. - Here, we remind the reader of AD's triumph in explaining the Compton Effect under this process, giving an equation many times superior to that of SR.
.- This has apparently been demonstrated to occur between photons. “light’s spooky connections set distance record,” by Mark Buchanan, “New Scientist,” 28 June 1997.
