In a Newtonian model of

Though the standard hypotheses or cosmic homogeneity/isotropy imply such forces have a__incorrect__*zero-mean,*they also have a**non-zero***variance!*It is known since Fenyes (1952) & Nelson (1967, 1985) that Schrodinger's Equation is derivable from Newtonian mechanics, in(__Stochastic Mechanics__**SM**) as a**neo-classical**alternative to the Copenhagen interpretation of QM. In SM, the forces acting are augmented by a zero-mean, non-zero-variance*background-field*process, but (although Nelson remarks that**"no physical system ... is truly isolated"**) no plausible candidate for theof__source__**mutual energy transfer which averages out to zero"**and is thus**"responsible for ... quantum fluctuations"**has hitherto been identified.
