Quantum mechanics was invented to address questions just like this. It describes the electron as a wave that can squeeze through both slits, not a bubble, but the idea of it squeezing through both slits appears to be correct. If you called the electrons a "bubble," that bubble would have to have all the properties of a quantum mechanical wave function.

But also as a bubble it could expand and retract, no?It could cover a huge area in a flat disc shape, take many different shapes and forms, but still be a bubble.

Electrons don't usually. And when they do, quantum mechanical wave functions describe them perfectly well. You haven't given any mathematical details of how these bubbles work, but if they model electrons properly, I can say with almost certainty that they're identical to wave functions. If they're different from wave functions, then they don't model electrons accurately.

AS for the maths involved, someone else would have to work that out.

Quote from: Wiybit AS for the maths involved, someone else would have to work that out. Unfortunately, science judges ideas almost entirely on their ability to use mathematics to model reality. Without any mathematical basis, an idea is basically scientifically useless.

I had an idea, sadly the to learn the maths I would have to learn to form a mathematical model for this idea would probably take quite a few years, plus quiet a few year of study into nuclear psychics.Needless to say it's a lot of effort just to draw up a model of an idea that could be wrong.At least this way possibly someone else that does have the knowledge could look into it and possibly draw up a model.

Even if someone did want to spend their valuable time doing all that work on a new idea, you would have to give them a good reason why yours is better than all the others out there.

Wiybit. It's always the interaction that defines the outcome. and what defines the interactions are the 'surroundings' and 'relations'. You don't really need to bind the intermediaries to any specific shape.

Yes, if Wiybit wants to develop it into a theory. As it then will be on its way to become a new idea of life, the universe and all
