CASIMIR is it an effect or a fact?

The Casimir effect is a new physics explanation of proton synchronisation
In classical physics like charges repel each other and move apart.  But if the protons are forced together in less than an atomic radius then the protons will bundle together in set quantums and their 3D spins will be synchronized and bind together within the nucleus as witnessed in all molecules.

"The Casimir effect is a new physics explanation of proton synchronisation"
No it isn't.

Nope, ordinarily they bounce off each other.
If they hit each other hard enough they may fuse
But if the protons are forced together in less than an atomic radius then the protons will bundle together

"as witnessed in all molecules."
no.
In a molecule the nuclei are effectively glued together by the electrons.

Wouldn't it be better if you learned a bit of science before you posted silly stuff like this?

It is new to me, but apparently the Casimir effect is one component of the "Chiral Bag model" of the nucleus, which allows reasonably accurate estimates of the mass/energy and size of a nucleus.

An accuracy of 10% is claimed for this theoretical model, which is a big improvement over previous models. The actual mass of the nucleus can be easily measured to within 0.001% in the laboratory*.

On very small scales, the Casimir effect can exert considerable force between conductors.
I guess you could consider protons (plus pions and quarks) as small conductors, very close together?

*As Karl Popper pointed out, estimating something you already know is much easier than estimating something that you don't already know.

In the traditional version of the Casimir effect, with closely-spaced, conductive parallel plates, the metal surfaces form boundary conditions on the electromagnetic field between the plates (and outside the plates).

This allows calculation of the force between the plates, including the interactions of virtual particles.

Unfortunately, the calculations often come up with infinite answers, so mathematical tricks have been used to get around the infinities, and come up with a finite force (which is what is observed in the laboratory).

The electromagnetic field plays a large part in the mass & energy of a nucleus. So defining the boundary conditions of the electromagnetic field within the nucleus is necessary in order to come up with a reasonably accurate model of the nucleus. The mathematical techniques used to analyse the Casimir effect have proved useful here.
