So if I understand correctly and trying to fit it into what we know about particles this is what I came to (mind that I am no science guy, just trying to imagine your theory)
- there are only electrons (bands like twisted rubber band creating infinity symbol) and they seek lowest energy state (thus repulsion - if I want to rest, I do not go to party). If under certain conditions (like forcing them to come together at the bend point in Borromean rings fashion - kinda resembles uud quarks in proton imho) they would be at lowest energy stable configuration - proton (uudd quarks or 4 electrons - neutron is lowest energy state possible but unstable and eventually loosing one electron). The lower energy state the higher mass or the more particle is opposing to change its energy to higher (so neutron is strongly opposing to change its energy state so highest mass, proton is almost at its lowest energy state but not completely so opposing strongly, electron is at its stable maximum energy state so strongly seeking its lowest energy state and thus very low mass).
Could the infinity-like band be like Mobius strip? This in my understanding could explain spin of electron and if you now visualise proton as a 3 Mobius strings in borromean configuration you will see that any two of them create double torus and if you add 4th strip stretched around that it would (if I imagine this correctly) be interlocked in infinite motion seeking its "way of entry" into the proton. Very good visualisation is toy electric DC motor
but the casing of that motor would do the spinning and in all 3 axis of rotation (in both directions, not simultaneously of course; as proton vibrates and the lowest energy entry point change).
The interesting conclusion I came based on above is that bringing hydrogen into state of absolute zero would not make electron collapse onto proton but would lock it into place (like turning off toy electric motor) thus creating dipole or permanent magnet. The higher "temperature" of proton would create sufficient displacement of inner bands to allow fourth band to enter the proton and creating neutron. But neutron would radiate its excess energy (vibration) over time (lowering its "temperature" and making displacement smaller) and in the end inner bands would expel fourth outside (creating hydrogen or even completely separating proton from electron <is it even possible to have a single proton without electron, more complex atom could be without an electron but lone proton, wouldnt attraction be too great to allow that for at least longer periods of time?>).
What do you think, did I get it right?
The experiment to check that would require multiple electron guns that would shoot electrons and colliding them in same point of space at same time. Would that work? Would it create proton in the end?
So matter would be lowest energy possible setup of system or how I could call it simply - laziness (the more lazy the more mass)?
