**6 TRUANTS, ANTITRUANTS AND VIRTUAL PARTICLES**

The proposal is that a string from the field has broken. Zipons have become disassociated from the field and they cluster in a visible amalgam seen as a nebulus in space.

I've proposed that a primary particle, the zipon, has now manifested as a truant. For symmetry and for every manifest truant there must also therefore be an antitruant. The truant is proposed as the zipon that has gained mass at a corresponding forfeiture of its velocity in the field. They are visible precisely because they are within the boundary constraints of light speed and light, therefore can detect them. Equally therefore, an equal number of those zipons would have gained velocity at the fofeiture of mass. They, however, would be the antitruant and would not be evident within the boundary constraints of light speed. So light would not be able to detect them.

Given that the disappearing truant is the truant's antiparticle then where, in space does that anti truant go? The proposal is that in losing it's mass it actually moves towards a point in space that is precisely where it first decayed as a zipon. In other words it does not occupy space in the sense that the truant occupies space. In effect it has the properties of velocity at the entire forfeit of its mass. The antitruant, therefore, does not share the same dimensions of volume in space. In point of fact it only retains the properties of charge and velocity in the same but opposite way that truants only retain the properties of charge and mass. Then, like the manifest truant, it will 'hang' in a fixed position in space, two different manifestations of the same zipon, but both outside of the magnetic field itself. And the zipons in the field can find neither truant. The one is too big and the other too small. Therefore there is no interaction with the field.

The proposal is that some of the truants will decay back into the field. These are virtual particles and, in effect, they will simply regain that velocity and lose mass and then, eventually, slot back into one of the strings in the field.

But the truants are only really very small magnets. Magnets have the overriding requirement to structure themselves into orderly fields where their charge is most perfectly balanced. Over time, therefore, as the truants and the anti truants expend their energy from the force of the singularity, then they will again collect into some structure that expresses this magnetic requirement. They eventually move to structure themselves into fields and they do this in small steps.
