Recent fits to nucleon form factor data show that the nucleon core has a Gaussian charge density distribution and peripheral periodicity of declining amplitude whose wavelength approximates the particle's Compton wavelength. This periodic feature was not anticipated by quark models, but its characteristics do match those of a three-dimensional Turing wave pattern produced in certain nonlinear reaction-diffusion systems. Almost three decades prior to these observational findings, the novel physics methodology of subquantum kinetics had predicted this type of electric field distribution for the nucleon, theorizing that subatomic particles may be Turing patterns or dissipative structures that emerge from an underlying reaction-diffusion matrix. This model, which is now confirmed by particle scattering data, provides new insights into the origin of charge, spin, nuclear binding, particle diffraction and electron orbital quantization.
