As a quick thought experiment, the fine structure constant has been experimentally determined using the electron spin g-factor
Quote from: Mr. ScientistAs a quick thought experiment, the fine structure constant has been experimentally determined using the electron spin g-factorI'll have more to post after I read your paper. I can offer a source for the fine structure constant given a universe comprised only of electromagnetic phenomena. The fine structure constant, in that universe, would be the ratio of the electron's diameter to its electric charge. The electron's circumference would be the wave length of its constituent photon.More later 
Bolded by me; that would be interesting. I'd love to see the derivation.
Quote from: Mr ScientistBolded by me; that would be interesting. I'd love to see the derivation. I didn't actually do the derivation, but took it far enough to see that one was possible. The notion that the FST would be related to the diameter of the electron comes from the postulate that electric charge derives from the bent path of a photon. The fields cannot be symmetric in the bend because the outside of the curve has more area.The tighter the bend radius, the greater the force.I followed your links and went through the posts. It was interesting. Your paradox seemed more to do with entanglement. I settled the observations of entanglement in my own mind by thinking of the photon as occupying a spacial area as a field. The field has points of saturation. The points are driven through space by the changing amplitude of the field. The field is oriented in the classic electric and magnetic planes. Polarization is a property of the field. Entangled photons share the same field. To change the polarization, you must change the field. So, naturally, both points of saturation reflect the same polarization when detected.
