Mirror Images: Matter and Antimatter

Authors: D.J. Pons

Existing theories of physics struggle to explain the difference between matter and antimatter in ways that make physical sense. This paper offers a reconceptualisation based on the cordus conjecture. We create a new concept of handedness, called ma, and an operational definition based on the energisation sequence of the cordus reactive-ends. Each reactive end for a stable matter particuloid, e.g. the electron, has three orthogonal hyff. The hand of these is held to be the same for all matter particuloids, whether positive or negative charge. For all antimatter particuloids the hand is inverted. The inversion also changes the direction of the hyff, and thus reverses the charge, but this is a secondary effect. This cordus concept permits models to be created differentiating between the electron, proton, and antielectron (positron). This explains why the antielectron is very different to the proton despite the same charge, and why the photon does not have an antiparticle. It also allows the wider integration of bonding and annihilation as manifestations of a single deeper mechanics.
