Part I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX
In Part II, I wrote about Ezekiel's vision of strange symbolic creatures called cherubim. I wrote that cherubim represent normal matter particles and I gave a rundown of the various symbols and metaphors associated with seraphim and cherubim. In this post, I examine the electron in the light of my current interpretation of the ancient symbols. I also argue that there might be three types of electrons and that a positron is really an electron with a flipped orientation.
Why I Think that There Might Be Three Types of Electrons
Physicists tell us that the electron is a point particle and that it has several properties such as mass, charge and spin angular momentum. Spin is responsible for the electron's magnetic properties. We are told that the electron is a spin 1/2 particle meaning that its has two spin states or directions, +z and -z. Let us ignore the angular momentum nonsense (particles do not really spin) for now and suppose that the electron's spin is just a discrete property corresponding to its absolute, discrete direction. My hypothesis is that the scriptural symbol used for a particle's direction is the face and that a face can have one of two orientations, forward or backward. This would suggest that an electron has only one face and two possible orientations. However, I have good reasons to suppose that an electron has at least two faces, one for magnetic interactions and one for electric interactions (see paragraph below). Let's call them the magnetic face and the electric face for now.
The Real Difference Between Electrons and Positrons
As I mentioned above, an electron apparently has two faces, a magnetic face and an electric face, each of which has two possible orientations. What this means is that a positron is just an electron whose electric face is oriented in the opposite direction. In Part IV, I'll explore the finer details of electron/lattice interactions and electric fields in the light of the properties I have described so far.
