Alright, I am determined to make some inroads into the understanding of what neutrinos are. As I have done so many times before, when faced with difficult problem, and having postulated that the Maxwell Equations derives all of physics, then I have to go back to the Symmetrical Maxwell Equations and pull out what those equations would say about the neutrino.
We know five facts about neutrinos that are essential. 1) We know they carry away mass/energy once a neutron decays apart into proton, electron and neutrino. So neutrinos serve as a accounting for mass and energy. 2) And we know that neutrinos all have a left handed chiral geometry. 3) And we know that neutrinos overall are less energy than photons overall, meaning that the average common neutrino is far less in energy than the average common photon, so that we can say the neutrino is primitive compared to the photon which is more complex. 4) And the neutrino seems to be associated only with electrons, not protons, for we have the electron, muon and tau neutrinos. And this is important in that the electron is hyperbolic geometry while the proton is elliptic and the photon is plane Euclidean geometry. 5) And finally, we can safely say the neutrino speed is the speed of light, for if it were less, our experiments would have uncovered it by now.
So now, if we put all those 5 considerations of fact into the Maxwell Equations, is there something we can extract out of the Maxwell Equations that may give us a deeper understanding of what the neutrino actually is?
Well, I spent the entire day trying to do that. To fit those 5 facts into the Maxwell Equations and I am happy to say, that one thing does come out of the Maxwell Equations, the symmetrical equations with the magnetic monopoles. It comes from the Faraday law of its J term, or, magnetic current density.
Essentially what it says is that the neutrino as a wave is not a transverse wave but rather a longitudinal wave and that would account for why the chirality is always left handed.
Now, I am a highly logical thinking person and studied science throughout my life. And I know of only one place in all of physics that has a longitudinal wave which is the sound wave. There is no longitudinal wave in the Maxwell Equations without magnetic monopoles. But when you include magnetic monopoles, you open the door for a necessity of a longitudinal wave.
The lines-of-force of physics is the photons and those photons are the fabric of space, but not just photons alone but magnetic monopoles. So if you picture space as lines-of-force of photons and magnetic monopoles, then you have a medium for which longitudinal waves can traverse. Sound exists because atoms fill the Space of planet Earth and those atomic vibrations create longitudinal waves.
Now the Ampere/Maxwell law has a "displacement current". The displacement current and the magnetic current density, those two entities maybe related so that they give rise to a longitudinal wave front.
So that when a free Neutron decays, there is a small amount of energy that needs to be accounted for, sort of like when people move out of a home to a new home they take most of their material, but a few items to be accounted for end up at the trash dump.
So as the neutron decays, some energy is emitted that is formed from the proton and electron and becomes a longitudinal wave of a neutrino.
Now to keep the chirality correct of the longitudinal wave, it is not a straight line of Euclidean geometry but a curved line of hyperbolic geometry. A hyperbola. Although a very small bending of the hyperbola compared to a straight line. Which would give experimental physicists something to look for.
