On 'Photon Capture' and the 'Red Shift'
« on: 20/10/2016 12:03:43 »
Photons incident upon an electron are currently viewed as having undergone a process of ‘absorption and emission’. By comparison, the ‘capture and release’ concept, puts the photon into a temporary hold state in an orbit around the electron. It is the presence of a photon around the electron, that places the electron into an ‘energised state’.

The implications of this change from physical ‘absorption and emission’ to a system of ‘storage and release’ by electrons, gives a new explanation for the 'red shift' in light received from distant galaxies.

The ‘capture and store' mechanism does not necessarily end with the storage of a single photon. Further incident photons of the requisite wavelength, are also captured into orbit around the electron, developing a series of concentric rings around itself.

Every time a photon is captured, it takes its place around the electron, creating a new concentric ring. This process leads to each captured photon undergoing an incremental increase in its wavelength. However, this change in the photon’s wavelength does not affect the photon’s kinetic energy, nor does it alter its velocity.

When we are viewing the light emitted from distant galaxies, we are seeing photons that were dispatched many billions of years ago by electrons in their young forming stars. The electrons of atoms located within the interior of the star, release photons that are re-captured by the electrons located in the outer layers of the star and it is these electrons that become loaded as double, triple, quadruple or even more photons around the electron. This photon ‘capture and release’ process is also the mechanism that causes materials to expand, when they are irradiated with photons.

With multiple photon rings circling around the electron, it is the outermost photon that is the first to be released and these photons emerge with their longer wavelength intact. In the energetic environment of a young star, these released photons are rapidly replaced by new ones, maintaining their density of concentric rings and consequently, the longer wavelengths of released photons.

As we observe galaxies which are progressively nearer to us, we are looking at them, far less back in time. The photons released by them have travelled shorter and shorter distances to reach us and hence we are observing the behaviour of more mature, but less energetic stars in these galaxies.  Stars cool over time and shrink in size, through their ongoing release of light photons into the space of the universe and this reduces the photon capture rates of electrons in the outer layers of their stars.

Reduced capture rates, results in less concentric ‘photon rings’ being located around each electron, so consequently, the photons in the outer ring, are released with a relatively shorter wavelength than those received from the more distant galaxies.

The nearest galaxy to us is Andromeda and the light released from it, has taken a mere 2.5 million years to reach us, making the wavelength of its photon emissions the most similar, but not the same, as stars in our own Milky Way galaxy. This receipt of photons with longer wavelengths from distant galaxies, when compared to the wavelengths received from the sun here upon earth, is what we call the ‘red shift’.

So the explanation of the ‘red shift’ is not necessarily the Doppler effect created by all the galaxies in the universe accelerating away from each other, but is simply a reflection of the cooling process experienced by the stars within a galaxy over the passage of time.

If a galaxy emits light with a ‘blue shift’, like Andromeda, it does not imply that it is accelerating towards us. It simply means that its stars have cooled faster than our own stars in the Milky Way galaxy and is emitting light from electrons with less concentric circles of photons around them, compared to the numbers of photons located around the outer electrons of our own ‘hotter’ sun.

This ‘red shift’ in the light that is received from galaxies around the universe is simply a product of their age upon release, with the shift towards longer wavelengths being directly correlated with their increasing distance from our own ‘Milky Way’ galaxy.

If we could somehow receive light from these distant galaxies that is being emitted right now, then we would not observe a 'red shift' at all, for these distant galaxies would be as mature in their development, as Andromeda and our Milky Way are today.

   What is your perspective of a photon? The proton is like a marble to a football field for the electrons path. can the photon be mass traveling through space? Atoms would have to lose mass if that were correct and we do not observe that. Relativity math does not work if photons had mass. This leaves us with one option. Mass and energy being two different things. Photons being wavelength disturbances on c energy propagating through space. Relativity has all of the answers when looked upon properly. Dilation of space due to macro mass refracts the light wave. Light produced in dilated space is red shifted compared to less dilated space. As we descend a gravity well space energy becomes more dilated. So light produced in the more dilated space creates a longer wave because the electron moved further to create the wave. When the electrons move further the physical object increases in size proportionally. So we measure the distances differently in every frame. Dilation of GR and wave travel time in SR cause equivalence in the view of your measuring stick. GR is physical and SR is visual. Relativity is a unique set of smoke and mirrors.

When I first met you online I thought you had the best open minded scientific approach and still respect your views. Alex from this site also as an open mind. Any subjective interpretation needs to follow relativity and mechanics to pass the conditions of reality. Mass even when called a virtual photon cannot travel through space at c. Only a wave propagation on existing c energy spin can move through space at c. The electron creates a disturbance in c spin for its jump distance we call a wave and frequency of rotation of the electron through the space jump. The dilation of c spin particles changes the distance and angle of refraction in the wave.

When you realize mass as a particle through space violates Relativity you need to reassess your model to include Relativity math not just use a weasel word virtual photon.
