Consider the electron-positron annihilationIf the positron has a negative mass -m, and the electron has a positive mass +m, their sum is-m+m=0Can we explain why the photon mass is zero (its rest-mass is 0)?Is it 0 because the photon is the particle into which the pair positron-electron is transformed in the annihilation?

I forget what it says since its been many years since I've read it but it's surely not popscience media, that's for sure. See http://www.newenglandphysics.org/Science_Literature/Journal_Articles/Bondi.pdfYes I've read it. It isn't popscience, but with respect, it's bad science that results from a lack of understanding of mass and gravity, along with a touch of "lost in math". And I will reiterate: the mass of a body is a measure of its energy-content. If you take away all the energy, the body does not exist, and you can't take away more energy. Ditto if you shorten a pencil to 0cm. It no longer exists, and you can't make it shorter.

According to my theory in my book, the property of mass is the result of a spherical momentum oscillation. An electron has an oscillation within its radius. The positron has a 180 degree phase difference in its oscillation as compared to the electron.. In addition both have degrees of linear and angular momentum. When you add an electron to a positron, you get a cancellation of the spherical momentum. This results in two photons. The energy is conserved and the photons now have high amounts of linear momentum.

Mass is entropy related, I do not know why you mention the above which I do not understand to mean anything, can you simplify that into layman terms?

If you have any questions or wish to discuss it let's take it to our private forum. Okay?Agreed.................At least this is in the forum where it belongs. I.e. this thread was moved here because it's outside the domain of mainstream physics meaning that what the OP claims are all WRONG.

He just can't fathom that he's wrong. What's bad about it is that he refuses to make an statement about why his claims should be taken as valid nor has he made an attempt to prove that he correct. He also ignores all the proof that he's wrong too.

Of course you are. Haven't you read the responses to your claims? Can't you see that your thread was moved to the New Theories Forum? That only happens when the claims made by the OP don't conform to mainstream physics like your bogus claims.

We know a nutcase when we see them because they insult people who explain their errors to them or say that they're wrong and that's all you've been doing since you got here is claiming that you know what's right and we don't because we're ignorant. The fact is that I've been a physicist for 30 years and you're merely an ignorant layman who refuses to state or prove why he thinks he's right.

The rest is more of the same stupid garbage. You don't deserve any help because you're not intelligent enough to grasp it.

In fact you were unable to grasp the fact that photons have a well defined relativistic mass because you mistook m = m_{0}/sqrt{1 - v^{2}/c^{2}} because that was derived on the assumption that the particle is a tardyon, not a luxon. The definition of relativistic mass is given implicitly as the m in p = mv. Therefore m = p/v. Since v = c for a photon m = p/c. Substituting in E = pc or p = E/c we end up with m = E/c^{2}

I don't think so.
