Hi Vern. Hope your still there. I'm back. We went out for a bite. I've just read through jerryGG38's post more carefully. Sorry my words lose you. Please try and understand them. Better still tell me where I've lost you. Glad to explain, if I possibly can. It's that eternal barrier between the trained and untrained. I hoped concepts bridge this. It seems to work for Vern.

Vern. Just to recap. The interaction between the 2 zippon composite and the field is proposed as the 'driving force' so to speak of the photon's path which would then radiate outwards in the neutral field of that curved framework of the primary magnetic field. In effect, all the photon's two composites would then do is systematically swap places with each other. No real expenditure of energy. Just a closed system. The actual electromagnetic interaction comes when it is moved, not courtesy it's own energy but courtesy the the energy from the field that then rejects one half of the photon's composite.

Now I'm not sure if this expains it - but here's the best I can do for a justification - outside of my patterns. The photon presents two charges on either side of the string. A plus say, on one side, and a minus say, on the other side. EDITED - The field only has one justification or charge, being, say a minus. The result is that the plus and minus cancel out leaving a minus. A single charge results in a single direction. And, I've already said that the the only path for the neutral composite of the whole photon would then be between the zipons. So it goes in a straight line through the neutral part of the primary field in a single direction and a straight path.

The problem is this. Back to the boundary constraints and that machine. If the field is moving the particle, and if the field has a constant velocity, as I've proposed, then this primary field can do something that that machine can't do. It can calculate the frequency of the photon and adjust the strength of it's throw so to speak, so that it invariably moves the photon at a constant speed regardless of it's frequency. This is patently absurd. The more so as the photon can move through an almost infinite range of frequencies. BTW is there an upper or lower limit?

What I've proposed is this. The time that it takes for the slow and fast truant to reach the zeniths of their orbit relates to the zipon's time frame. In other words, let's say the frequency of the photon is 50 zipon moments big. So. In relation to the time frame of the field, it would take 25 zipon moments for both truants to reach that zenith. Another 25 zipon moments to decay back into the field. And then another interaction and - off they go again. Then it doesn't matter what its frequency. Anything as small as a fraction of a zipon moment all the way up to a million million zipon moments, the photon will always then be constrained to light speed - exactly half the speed of the zipons in the field.

Is this interaction that much different to your's? In effect you're dealing with the manifest truant. There's nothing to preclude an invisible anchoring quark, as I've referred to it. And - to all intents and purposes the photon would always then move as, indeed they do. The difference being that it's frequency would be marked by a 'flicker' as it disappears from view when it decays and interacts with the field.

This post is way too long. I feel you wincing - right across the Atlantic.

EDIT - actually I've just looked at it. It's not too bad.
