Concentric Spherical Waves as a Model for Elementary Particle

Milo Wolff is promoting the idea that all particles are couples of an inward bound wave and an outward bound wave. (Dr Milo Wolff, 1990)

Outbound wave

+Inbound wave =

Standing wave

He wrote this article on the subject: The Wave Structure of Matter - How Waves form 'Particles'. The figures are from that page.

"The Wave Structure of fundamental Particles evolved over five years. It began with a simple speculation that waves in Space could explain the de Broglie wavelength. It continued to agree with more laws and observations than I first expected and I was amazed. The 'Particle' is two identical spherical waves travelling radially in opposite directions so that together they form a spherical standing wave. The wave which travels inward towards the center is called an In-Wave, and the wave travelling outward is an Out-Wave. The nominal location of the ‘Particle’ is the Wave-Center, but as must be true for any charged Particle, it has presence everywhere in Space because the charge forces extend throughout the Universe."

Here is another posting on the same topic.

It is interesting. I like how the waves would have a very large size in that the outbound wave extends far from the center, and still have a very dense center that could interact with matter.

My issue with this is what creates the inbound field from nothing in the distant outside space. It is a cool idea, but it needs some work.
