The smaller the particle socks mass is, the higher their rate of oscillation(twisting), but the longer the particle survives(before decaying)? Sock time has more to do with age of the particle sock than position of the sock(ct)?

If the (sock) magnitude of the twisting elastic space-time oscillation is greater for higher mass particles then what happens to the particles space-time during the process of decay? Wires break if you twist them enough times, what about space-time, are its properties altered by repeated twisting?

EnergeticRobb978 suggests in post:72, that there could be a hypothetical vacuum or void outside of our universe, devoid of space-time, but what if large angle repeated twisting due to the high mass of a subatomic particle lets in the void, fractures in space-time? When the fracturing or cracking becomes resealed somehow, a lower mass more stable subatomic particle takes the place of the previous higher mass particle? Could the exterior hypothetical void permeate a hypothetical interior media composed of space-time particles?

My hypothetical fractured (sock elastic)subatomic particle space-time, is a very Doctor Who`s Amy Pond`s crack in the wall kind of idea, but to me its a more satisfying explanation smiley - smiley than the (Wikipedia) probability equation for particle decay.

Looked up some probability equations for the survival probability; P(t)=e^-t/Y.t(mean particle lifetime), or the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution f(E)=A.e^-E/k.T(temperature). While its possible to calculate a particles chances of survival, the cause of the particles demise remains a mystery ?

Is time continuous," arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9706059 " or is it the sum of particles( Chronons )? A chronon duration lasting ~6.10^-24 seconds( maybe too short a duration to measure? )

If the quantum unit of time is a chronon, my sock model units equivalent would have to be, socks-on-time smiley - smiley , whats the quantum unit of size called( my choice obviously being a socks-on )? Maybe the size of a quantum particle = c*6.97*10^-24 meters?

An electron(sock), exists because its intrinsic energy-mass gives the space-time`s elastic property a slight 4d twisting motion. Unlike a named particle (4d twisting sock), a sock-on could be an equivalent named particle action, or the thing that locates where a twisting may take place? smiley - winkeye The more sock-on`s the more likely a twisting can take place?

The thing that locates where a twisting continues to take place is its surroundings, spherically expanding waves from other similar frequency 4d-twisting resonances, occurring at other places( socks of a similar tint), within the space-time media( a kind of sock inertia )? But what is this space-time media, its easy to measure and yet an explanation for whats being measured( a good yarn smiley - winkeye ) remains a mystery?

Electron (socks) not only have inertia, but they also exhibit charge & obey something called the Pauli exclusion principle. Somehow an electron rotates to cause a spin up or down magnetically aligned field, allowing two electrons to occupy the same orbit, drawn together by one of the two having the opposite field to the other, yet kept apart by something called the Exchange Interaction?

If the spherical vibration of the electron(sock) were to produce the charge effect, and the magnetic effect were due to an acceleration of the charge, could the charge acceleration be caused by beat frequencies between the incoming & out going waves? Surface dimples traveling clockwise or anticlockwise?

Could electron(like socks in the tumble dryer smiley - smiley ) magnetic up or down spin, be a tide like effect, that causes a rippling, or an out of phase component, to the spherical wave front, by the motion of the nearby protons within the atom?

In post 89, maybe electron (twisting sock) inertia would be relative to the electric field (due to other nearby twisting socks). Likewise maybe magnetic field inertia(due to other nearby tumbling & twisting socks) & mass inertia due to the other masses pretensioning the space-time(surrounding socks pretensioned the common sock elastic smiley - winkeye before our sock was twisted into existence)?

Tensioned space-time(sock elastic), as a cause of mass inertia, is like the idea put forward in post 3, particles bouncing about within an object cause lots of small momentary stretches within its region of space-time. Space-time may be tensioned by the mass, generated within two nearby objects, causing space-time to shrink between them, but measured distances in the objects co-moving frame of reference is unchanged, although maybe now their time varies instead? How fast can changes to the rate of change of time propagate? smiley - winkeye

If both nearby objects share the same rate of passing of time there is no net force between them. But if they both have a slightly different rate of time passing compared to the other, then an attractive force occurs while there is a disequilibrium in the rate of time passing? All those little 4d twists in both objects plus contributions from farther away objects, all seem to sum together so time can tell objects when its a good time for a change of location. smiley - smiley Does the sum happen instantly or does it also take some time tally up?

Force being an expression for the disequilibrium of time between objects, being proportional to change in momentum over time, momentum being proportional to change of position over time. So does it take time for time to change over time? Could times speed be equal to light speed, or is it proportional to something else, maybe entropy?

Electrons(sock) momentum being a measure of the time it takes for the fold in space-time to relocate to a new point, from a past event to now, or from now to a future event. Momentum = gamma x mass x velocity, where gamma Y=(1-v^2/c^2)^-0.5, is a factor that goes to one if velocity is very much less than light speed (c as measured in a vacuum away from any masses like the Earth the Sun our or other Galaxy?smiley - winkeye ). Gamma compares the ratio of the time it takes to transfer a packet of energy between points to the time it takes to transfer the energy packet between the same points at light speed. An electron(sock) could never be transfered at light speed since it would then be an equivalent photon energy packet(and not a sock)? At what speed will an electron become a photon(maybe another Zeno type paradox)?

See Synchrotron radiation, maybe the emission of photons due to acceleration prevent electrons reaching light speed. If an electron-neutrino were a fold in space-time that is almost halfway inverted, then maybe a photon is actually halfway inverted, giving it zero mass, yet the possibility for an oscillating polarity?

The emission of photons due to an electron being accelerated is a grainy, whole hertz, almost digital process, while the gamma factor assumes its a smooth, analog process, smiley - smiley what`s being observed seems to depend on the chosen scale? Could a photon be like an electron(sock) half way inside-out(see postings 77 & 78 )?

For more on four-vector stuff see wiki`s web pages, sorry lots more baffling maths smiley - erm . Lorentz transformations, the gamma factor relates proper time dT to measured time dt? Trouble is dt is due to lots of little events, as the electron being accelerated stores up enough energy to then emit each photon. The emission of which changes the direction and four velocity of the electron, an almost iterative process just to travel between two points(or events?).
