A New Direction for Physics?
Lewis Little discusses his Theory of Elementary Waves

Wave goodbye to: wave-particle duality, entanglement, non-locality, faster-than-light signalling, instantaneous action, Schroedinger's paradox, the fashionable modern indifference and dogmatic contempt for physical explanation, and all the spooky Zen-like convolutions and contortions of standard quantum and relativity theory.


Wave hello to: cause and effect, locality, the law of identity, solving the EPR paradox, putting physicality back into physics, explaining the constant speed of light.


Say G'day to logic and reality! Yippee!


Topics covered in this interview include

The history of theories of light -> Aristotle (384 - 322 BC), Isaac Newton (1643-1727), Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695), Thomas Young (1773-1829), James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879), Max Planck (1858-1947), Albert Einstein (1879-1955), Louis de Broglie (1892-1987).


What is the double-slit experiment? How did Dr. Little re-think this classic experiment? What happens when you move the detection screen toward or away from the source of light? What is Dr. Little’s interpretation of the results?  Why haven’t other physicists come up with Dr. Little’s conclusions?


What’s wrong with the standard theory of quantum mechanics?  “Locality” vs “non-locality”. How does the reverse or “reciprocal” wave work? Why “elementary” waves? The mathematics is not the physics. How does the Theory of Elementary Waves theory offer a simple physical explanation for Relativity Theory and the constant speed of light? Dr. Little’s opinion of Albert Einstein. Einstein misquoted! Thought experiments. What was the idea behind the EPR (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen) thought experiment, and how does it fit in with the idea of elementary waves?

Guest: Dr Lewis Little, Creator of the Theory of Elementary Waves (TEW)


P is the photon source. S is the double slit. A, B, and C are the one detector screen, but moved into three different positions. a1, b1, and c1 are the points where the first maxima occurs on each detector screen.

Photons travel from the photon source P, through the slits, S, and arrive at a detector screen. A wave-like diffraction pattern is seen.

The detector screen is moved from position A to position B to position C. We see that the diffraction pattern on the screen shifts exactly as one would expect to see it do if light were waves.

However, photons are actually particles and NOT waves. Photons have only ever been detected as particles. In fact the brightest points on the screen - the maxima - are simply those points where the photons emerging from both slits are most heavily concentrated - as PARTICLES.

This diagram shows the changing position of the first maxima on the detector screen as that screen is placed in three different spots.

Note how, as we move the detector screen from A through to C, the angle of the photons - their trajectory - as they emerge from the slits - is different for each detector screen position.

Indeed, in order to conform to a standard diffraction pattern the photons MUST change their trajectory as the screen moves.

Therefore we can conclude that:

  1. The photons are obeying a wave influence
  2. The screen is influencing photon trajectory
  3. The screen is a source of wave influence
  4. The screen is a source of waves ??

Some handy Flash animations online!
These were not created by TEW (Theory of Elementary Waves) supporters but they illustrate effects that will help you understand how particles and waves behave - including the famoust double slit (or "two slit") experiment.

  • This one allows you to get acquainted with Thomas Young's "interference" experiment AND allows you to alter the distance between the screen and the double slit -> click here
  • This one shows the double-slit experiment using electrons one at a time hitting a detector screen -> click here
  • Here's a groovy Physics animation that shows particles going through a double-slit and then waves going through it. You can see that they behave very differently -> click here
  • Thomas Young Double slit experiment -> click here
    You can move the detector screen on this one by dragging it.
