And, an alternate theory to QED (classical Continuum Mechanics based) suggests a variable FSC, given by the equation:
1/FSC = 2 SQRT (3/k) * (2Pi*MMA)2
Where MMA is the Magnetic Moment Anomaly (1.001165923) and k is the dielectric constant of the bulk material in which its measurement is made. With air, k ~= 1.0006, thus we get 137.03523, accurate to 0.0005%. The remaining inaccuracy can be attributed to that of the measurement of k...
The basic idea is that, there is some form of energetic media (some have proposed light, neutrinos, or other basic particles or wave dispersion) that is relatively uniform and isotropic throughout space. This in turn interacts with matter in a fashion as to lose or deposit some energy into the matter, causing a pressure to be exerted on the matter...
The basic continuity equation of Continuum Mechanics is given as:
d(rho)/dt + (rho)Div v = 0
where rho is the field density, and v is the mean velocity. If the field is incompressible this simplifies to:
(rho) Div v = 0
Since with the incompressible assumption, there can be no change in density. We can further simplify the equation by removing density (dividing it from both sides) we then get:
Div v = 0...
This article is to present an overview discussion for a conceptual model which is based on basic kinetic theory, and Maxwell's model of atomic vortices. It also encompasses gravitation and its Newtonian derivation, Quantum Mechanic & Planck's constant, and EM (as well it should, being based on Maxwell's model). The model does specifically predict certain differences that are not currently covered in the standard physics models as they exist today. These include:
- A thermal emission component that is directly related to the gravitational field of a material body.
- A drag component for any mass with translational motion in free isotropic space.
- Distorted orbital rotation velocities for very large gravitating mass distributions and bodies.
- An acceleration field results from any E field gradient.
- The actual value of elemental charge is not constant, and depends on the permitivitty and permeability of the region of space in which it occupies.

The discovery by Max Planck.s in 1900 that the emission of thermal radiation could only occur in discrete quantities related to a emission constant (called Planck's constant) and the subsequent evolution of quantum mechanics, has resulted in an inability to establish a standard foundation for all classes of physical phenomena. Recent efforts not withstanding (Superstring theories, SU(3)XSU(2)XU(1) ...etc), there still remains a distinct separation of quantum mechanics from other branches of physics, notably general relativity. This discussion suggests a common foundation for all physical phenomena and derives the known physical constants (h, e, o, ?o, , R). It also provides for the manifestation of the four known forces as well as a simple explanation of there existence.
Once fully rendered, one will realize that gravitation is a connective process between matter and the ZPE (Zero Point Energy or aether) field. It not only produces the obvious result we call gravity, but also is the productive agent of elemental charge, inertia (which is why inertial mass is identical to gravitational mass), and the deBroglie wave phenomena.
A long time ago, Lord Kelvin (W. Thompson), Lorentz, Maxwell, and Hemholtz recognized that the behavior of matter had characteristics similar to vortex ring structures in a fluid (the atomic vortex hypothesis). This concept was abandoned in the early 1900's. This abandonment was more philosophical than substantive with the real problem being the math describing the model was, "at the time", intractable. Must more success was being obtained by QM methods. This same model rears up again in modern physics in the form of the mathematical topology of string/super string theory as well as in superconductivity and superfluidity. Penrose's twistor is a vortex ring, as is a magnetic field. It is interesting to note that vortex rings can sustain transverse vibrations (analogous to guitar string vibration), indeed Kelvin proved mathematically that linear disturbances in a saturated 3D vortex fluid (he termed a vortex sponge) would produce propagation of pure transverse waves identical to the equations and properties that describe the propagation of light through space. It was this relationship as well as many others that caused this hypothesis to be considered seriously. It also is interesting to note that Maxwell used this conceptual model as the basis for his derivation of the EM relationships.
