A Two-Fluid Vacuum, the Photex, and the Photex-Photon Connection

A general description is given of a fluidic model for physical reality. It conforms with relativistic invariance in an operational manner. Fluid models replace the canonical particle representations. A major feature of this work is a physical representation for the generation of electromagnetic waves which are quantized. This is closely related to the Hertzian dipole wave pictures. The energy of this discrete minimum electromagnetic dipole half wavelength field distribution is approximately 10−15 electron volts. Many quantum and other effects can be calculated via this approach but more important a number of experiments are suggested whose confirmation would be needed to bring such ideas into serious contention.
