No it isn't. A lot of people have put forward papers on this theme, I've just read them, that's all. There's Williamson / van der Mark's Is the electron a photon with toroidal topology? which appeared in Annales de la Fondation Louis de Broglie, Volume 22, no.2, 133 (1997). They were at CERN for 7 years. A somewhat similar paper The nature of the electron by Qiu-Hong Hu appeared in Physics Essays, Vol. 17, No. 4, 2004. Another one is Rotating Hopf-links: a realistic particle model by Elrich Unz, which appeared in Physica D 223 2006, then there's the more recent Electron, Universe, and the Large Numbers Between by Manfred Geilhaupt and John Wilcoxen. There's more, such as Confined Propagation as a Particle Model by Don Jennings at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. See google for other instances. This isn't the half of it. I was talking to a guy a couple of weeks ago who had a long list of papers going back to 1911 I think. I should dig it out and do a proper list. Besides, paper don't really count. Evidence counts, the evidence of pair production, spin angular momentum, magnetic dipole moment, the Einstein de Haas effect, electron diffraction/refraction/optics, and annihilation. How much more evidence does anybody need?
