"A 'Fusion' of the Wave and Particle Concepts". The Director of Yale’s Division of Physical Sciences, A. Douglas Stone, points out in his book on "Einstein and the Quantum" that Einstein believed that there needed to be some “fusion” in quantum theory to arrive at some deeper level of understanding of the quanta phenomenon that exists between matter and waves. “In 1954, a year before his death …Einstein wrote…to de Broglie…"Indeed, exactly like you, I am convinced that one must look for a substructure, a necessity that the present quantum theory hides.”
This paper proposes that there is a fundamental connection between space and matter that ties them together as two sides of one system and the quanta of energy is a fundamental part of that connection. That connection gives a new perspective on the nature of light, the fundamental forces, including gravity, and the flow of energy.
