Worries of a Bio-Scientist: Do We Need a New Atomic Model?
Cell biology has entered the age of quantum biology. In some situations even a single electron
matters, particularly with respect to the mind-body dialogue. More and more bio-scientists depend on
a sound quantum physics. Biology is about stable matter: electrons, protons, neutrons and their
relation with photons. This elicits the question: Can we trust the ‘classic’ atomic model? The answer
is: No! This review summarises the not very much known discoveries of Kanarev, of Thomson and
Bourassa and of Mills, who each revealed an astonishing number of mistakes in the physics
underpinning atomic theory as it is instructed in introductory university courses. One mistake elicits
another and that might have been the reason why the developers of quantum theory found
themselves in front of such a difficult task. Mistakes were found in not considering the unity of
matterspace-time, in Bohr’s equation for line spectra, in the way Maxwell’s equations are applied
at the quantum level, in the way the original insights of Coulomb were mistreated, in the historical
abandonment of the concept of the aether by the experiment of Michelson and Morley, who disproved
a static aether, but not a dynamic one, and in the obsession of seeing particles at all levels. In an
independent way the above authors developed their own alternative theories in which the weird
aspects of classic quantum theory fade and become replaced by Newtonian mechanics and simple
algebra. It is amazing how these independent theories following entirely different approaches come to
quite similar insights. Some aspects of the new theories will be put together and compared. They are
very complementary, reinforcing each other and together building the main-frame for a new atomic
theory. Because these theories can only be touched briefly, the advice is to read the original
manuscripts and start the scientific debate.
