Surely that isn't the case? If we look at your model of atoms, a diatomic hydrogen molecule has equal numbers of electrons and positrons so it would have to be neutral. As you heat up these hydrogen molecules, they gain more electrons as they get hotter and hotter so they would have to have a net negative charge.
It sounds like you could make some good mathematical predictions about just how much weight should decrease as a piece of metal gains or loses negative charge, since negative charge comes in discrete, quantifiable amounts.
I will probably need to know why a proton weighs almost 2,000 times more than an electron if the components of a proton are only two positrons and an electron. What mechanism in your model accounts for all the extra mass?
The article reads "To build its device, the team developed a grid of tiny cavities etched in silicon, forming the photonic crystal. By precisely applying electric current to the grid, the scientists can control, or harmonically tune, the photonic crystal to synthesize magnetism and exert virtual force upon photons". This sounds to me something like an electromagnet.
Deflection of light by an MRI magnetic field may be too small to notice. Placing many magnets in sequence such as in particle accelerators could increase the effect.
In my theory there are no negatively charged materials, only positive.
Also interesting is to determine how many negative heat particles are found in 1 calorie.
A proton deflects less than an electron in a mass spectrometer. Neutrons are not deflected. In my theory a proton could deflect less than an electron because some of the force is used to drag the neutral constituent of the proton.
.What is "required" is that you pay attention to the results.

Theories are ten a penny. Theories with numbers are very rare because they tend only to live long enough for someone to disprove them. Theories without numbers are worthless.
A population of hydrogen molecules could consist of cationic and neutral molecules. As more negative heat particles are added more cationic molecules are converted to neutral molecules and the positive charge of the population and weight decreases. As more negative heat particle are added at some point there will be more negative than positive particles in the volume and the charge of the volume will become negative.
I don't know how you can make quantitative predictions without results of experiments. If you do the experiment and find say 1 microgram drop in weight per 1 calorie absorbed you can begin to make quantitative predictions. Also interesting is to determine how many negative heat particles are found in 1 calorie.
I actually did spend time reading your website and I've come to realize that your model doesn't necessarily predict a violation of conservation of mass. It predicts that weight should change at increasing temperature, but weight and mass are not the same thing. A mass of one kilogram will have a different weight on Mars than it will on Earth, for example.
Inertial mass is a measure of resistance to acceleration. Even if you hold that inertial mass is an electromagnetic effect, it's still a measurable and important quantity.
(1) Does your model predict that positrons and electrons have equal inertial mass?
(2) Does your model predict that positrons and electrons have electric charge that is equal and opposite in magnitude?
(3) Does your model have any problems with the accepted inertial mass and charge of the electron (that is, 9.1 x 10-31 kg and -1.6 x 10-19 C respectively)?
Weight and mass are the same thing under the conditions of the proposed experiment carried at a fixed geographical position. W =mg. g is constant. Any change in W is a change in m.
So would that mean that a hot object should also be easier to push in a zero-gravity vacuum than a cold object?
If that's true, then wouldn't that mean that electrons have to have negative inertial mass? If adding them to an object with positive inertial mass makes that object's inertial mass less positive then their inertial mass has to be negative. However, then we end up with a contradiction because you propose that all objects are made up of electrons and positrons (and you agree that they both have equal inertial mass). This means that all objects should have negative inertial mass too. How does your model account for this seeming contradiction?
I don't understand this part of the message.
In order to break it down a bit, imagine that you put a single electron on a very, very sensitive scale. Does the scale register a positive weight?
I imagine an electron placed on top of a pan should reduce weight of a pan and if placed at bottom of a pan should increase weight of the pan.
What accounts for this?
As an alternative scenario, imagine that I want to accelerate an electron that is in a zero-gravity vacuum. Do I have to expend energy in order to accelerate it? Will a positive force be necessary?
In my theory weight of the pan is determined by the difference between opposite positive repulsive forces acting on the pan, stronger repulsive force from above and weaker repulsive force from below. Placing an electron on top of pan will reduce the repulsive force from above and reduce the difference between forces acting on the pan and its weight. Placing an electron at bottom of the pan will reduce repulsive force from below and increase the difference between forces and weight.
The electron can be accelerated by applying a negative charge to push it or a positive charge to pull it.
Hmm... so what happens if we add an electron to a single atom? Due to quantum mechanics and the wave nature of particles, the electron should be equally smeared over the surface of the atom and therefore equally above and below the atom at the same time. If the electron is equally spread out over the whole atom, then the weight should not change, right?
And that acceleration will give the electron a positive measure of kinetic energy?
Electrons are equally smeared all around an atom located far away from a gravitational force. Near a positively charged object such as the earth the distribution of electrons shifts towards the positive earth
Electrons are equally smeared all around an atom located far away from a gravitational force. Near a positively charged object such as the earth the distribution of electrons shifts towards the positive earth giving the atom polarity with a weak positive pole facing the earth and a strong positive pole facing away from the earth. The weak positive pole decreases the positive repulsive force from the direction of the earth and the strong positive pole increases the positive repulsive force from above pushing the atom towards the earth. The difference between forces gives weight to a stationary atom.
or(2) Weight and mass are the same thing, which creates the paradox that adding electrons both increases and decreases the object's weight at the same time.
