The Cross Referance on Bees
Posted:

OK, let's talk about a lighter change of topic which is Uranium... Well, I guess it is commonly known at this point that electrons in the outer shells of the heavier elements traverse at relativistic velocities... What does that mean? Well, it means they don't spin and the energy of the electron's orbit is a function of that electron's radius... What is surprizing to me personally is that what I associate with Feynmann seems to indicate that he may have modeled much of his analysis on Uranium... Electrons in the outer shells of Uranium don't interact with each other such that the orbit of one electron influences the orbit of another electron in the same shell... That is acceptable up to a point but I don't think that the orbit of electrons is a repetative cycle analygous to the orbits of gravitational bodies... The cross referance with bees is that electrons in orbit in the outer shells of Uranium have a given resonance and that given resonance is present in electrons that are not in orbit about a given radius... Electrons that traverse through a conductor such as a copper wire have a similiar resonance.
