This author has discovered a classical link to the quantum condition. The link is the elastic limit of space. The introduction of the elastic limit reveals the path of the quantum transition and provides insight into the duality of particles and waves. Convention represents the matter wave as the superposition of an infinite number of component waves. The Fourier addition of component waves localizes the matter wave. Waves, other than the matter wave, are localized by restraining forces. This author proposes that the natural forces are pinned into the structure of matter (restrained) at a discontinuity produced by the elastic limit of space. Reflections are produced at the discontinuity. The superposition of the incident and reflected wave is the deBroglie wave of matter.
