The Checkerboard Theory of the Nucleus

The Checkerboard Theory of the Nucleus
By Theodore M. Lach II P.E.

"The nucleus is a precessing 2 dimensional structure"   • "This theory elminates the need for a 4th force of nature, the strong force" • "The proton is the smallest quantum vortex, as the up quarks going around the proton have a DeBroglie wave lenght of 1.000. • What holds the protons together in a nucleus is the electrostatic attraction of oppositely charged orbiting quarks and magetic flux coupling (electromagnetic forces).

The result of this calculation is that the up quark has exactly the speed and momentum to be exactly 1.0000 de Broglie wavelengths going around the proton.

Checkerboard Board Model of the Nucleus
Presented APS April Meeting Jan 29, 2017 Washington D.C.
By Theodore M. Lach
The Checkerboard model of the Nucleus has been in the public domain for over 20 years. Over those years it has been described by nuclear and particle physicists as; cute, ``the Bohr model of the nucleus'' and ``reminiscent of the Eightfold Way''. It has also been ridiculed as numerology, laughed at, and even worse. In 2000 the theory was taken to the next level by attempting to explain why the mass of the ``up'' and ``dn'' quarks were significantly heavier than the SM ``u'' and ``d'' quarks. This resulted in a paper published on arXiv.nucl-th/0008026 in 2000, predicting 5 generations of quarks, each quark and negative lepton particle related to each other by a simple geometric mean. The CBM predicts that the radii of the elementary particles are proportional to the cube root of their masses. This was realized Pythagorean musical intervals (octave, perfect 5th, perfect 4th plus two others). Therefore each generation can be explained by a simple right triangle and the height of the hypotenuse. Notice that the height of a right triangle breaks the hypotenuse into two line segments. The geometric mean of those two segments equals the length of the height of this characteristic triangle. Therefore the CBM theory now predicts that all the elementary particles mass are proportion to the cube of their radii. Therefore the mass density of all elementary particles (and perhaps black holes too) are a constant of nature.
