Based on the law of energy conservation, we figured out that, the steady state electronic motion around a given nucleus generally depicts a rest mass variation throughout, though the overall relativistic energy remains constant. Note that our approach is, in no way, conflicting with the usual quantum mechanical approach. Quite on the contrary it provides us with the possibility of elucidating the ?quantum mechanical weirdness?. We happened to develop our theory originally vis-?-vis gravitational bodies in motion with regards to each other; hence, it is comforting to have both the atomic scale and the celestial scale described on just the same conceptual basis. One way to conceive the phenomenon we disclosed is to consider a ?jet effect?. Accordingly, a particle on a given orbit through its journey must eject a net mass from its back to accelerate, or must pile up a net mass from its front to decelerate, while its overall relativistic energy stays constant throughout. The speed of the jet, strikingly, points to the de Broglie wavelength, coupled with the inverse of the frequency, delineated by the electromagnetic energy content of the object of concern.This makes that, on the whole, the jet speed becomes a superluminal speed, yet excluding any transport of energy. Recent measurements appear to back up our conjecture. Here, furthermore may be a clue, for the wave-particle duality.
