We show that the energy and the momentum of the standing waves formed by trapping electromagnetic waves between two reflecting surfaces transform exactly like those of a point particle. When such a standing wave system is given translational motion, it is observed that its time-dependent part transforms into a plane wave while its space dependent part becomes the amplitude wave which gets compacted into the internal coordinates. Using the idea that the electromagnetic waves can have spatial amplitude, we show that if such a wave is confined after imparting spinning motion, a system of two confined helical waves is formed with the one travelling forward in time forming electron and the one travelling backward in time forming positron. The confined helical wave picture of the particle gives a simple explanation of Pauli’s exclusion principle.
