How an Electron "Emits" and "Absorbs" Electromagnetic Radiation
Recall that the atomic torus vortex carries the electron in its vortical motion; thus, the electron does not represent motion relative to
the aether-medium. An electron causes a disturbance in the aether-medium—propagated compression pulses (electromagnetic
waves)—only when it accelerates relative to the aether-medium.
According to Bohr, for an electron to shift its orbital position it must “emit” or “absorb” energy. These words are misnomers:
electrons do not emit or absorb energy, they translate it. An electron accelerates as it moves closer to the center of the nucleus of
an atom torus vortex. This is because the strength of the bond—the static electrical force—between the electron and proton (or
proton-neutron pair) becomes stronger. (Remember, a force exerted on a mass causes it to accelerate.) But if it accelerates, it
creates, as I just explained, a compression pulse in the aether-medium. Thus, when an electron moves from an outer orbit to inner
orbit, it “emits” a quantum of energy that is propagated through the aether as an electromagnetic wave. When an electron moves
from an inner orbit to an outer orbit, it must overcome the strength of the sink-source flow link with a proton (or protons). To effect
this, a compression pulse—a quantum of energy—must collide with it and push it from one orbit to another; in other words, the
electron must “absorb” a quantum of energy.
How an Electron, an accelerating "charged particle," Orbits a Proton Without Constantly Radiating Electromagnetic Energy
- How does an centripetally accelerating charged particle ("electron) orbit an atomic center has centripetal acceleration if
electromagnetic theory requires that any accelerating charged particle to constantly radiate electromagnetic waves, or energy?
For if it did, the electron must proportionally lose kinetic energy, too; thus, electrons would spiral into the nucleus and atoms
- Bohr avoided the problem by claiming, ad hoc, that in this case, electrons do not radiate energy. This is an unacceptable evasion
of the problem.

Atoms represent a fixed quantity of aggregated energy: a greater quantity of aethrons within a smaller volume of space is
equivalent to a greater quantity of energy (amount of motion) than the energy of an equivalent volume of space of isotropic
aether. If the condensed state of these fluidly organized patterns are broken up, and the aethrons are forced out of their
permanent flows,—such as by nuclear fission—they would all expand into the surrounding space at the speed of light (for that
is the speed at which disturbances of the aether are propagated). This immense energy, freed by the decondensation of
matter, is represented by the equation E=mc^2.

|Why Quantum Vortices have Wave-like and Particle-like Properties
“Quantum particles” are perpetually surrounded by the aether-medium; thus, as they move through the aether-medium, the
former disturbs the latter, and this disturbance is transmitted via waves. This unique wave motion, called a pilot wave, is
created in the aether-medium directly in front of the “particle” as it moves. It resembles bow wave a moving boat creates in
the water. This pilot wave accounts for the wavelike properties of the “particles.”

How a Quantum Vortex Creates Quantums of Radiated Energy
An electron makes 100s of trillions of revolutions per second—with momentum enough to produce radiation frequencies within the
range of visible light of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Note: this passage is repeated in the page on Light.
When an electron accelerates, it collides with the aether-medium, compressing it. For a very short time interval there is an extremely
high increase in the density of aether-medium aethrons in front of the accelerating electron. This compressed layer of aether-medium,
to dissipate the extreme density disturbance, rapidly accumulates a velocity high enough to separate it from the electron. This can
occur because the unlinked aethrons of the aether-medium are able to freely move in one direction faster than the linked aethrons of
an aethron-body like an electon. When this occurs—when that pulse of accumulated excess density separates from the electron—
empty space is left in front of the electron for a very short interval of time; the electron obviously cannot compress this empty space.
However, this space is rapidly occupied by the surrounding aether, which is in turn compressed by the electron, which of course is
decelerating with each new compression. Thus, one compression pulse follows another compression pulse. The empty space that
succeeds the departure of one compression from the electron causes these pulses to follow one another at a certain quantity of
distance. The repetitive action of space-following-compression causes light to “radiate” or propagate discontinuously in the all-
pervading isotropic aether-medium. One compression pulse represents the minimum quantity of excess energy of electromagnetic
radiation as Planck so discovered. These dense compression pulses are equivalent to a “photon,” but of course need not be
considered particles. The density of these compressions causes them to collide with aether-bodies like electrons in a particle-like way.
Compression Pulses: As the piston
(electron) accelerates, it rapidly
compresses the aether. The
compressed aether rapidly moves
away from the electron, leaving empty
space behind it. NOTE: light is not
longitudinal wave because the aether
is a three-dimensional medium not
bound within a tube. (Sound is not a
longitudinal wave as well.)

A macroscopic analogy of the "deBrogile Pilot Wave"
In the micro-solar model of the atom, the orbital revolution of the electron, while it is being carried by the torus vortex of the
atom, does not represent motion relative to the medium. This is similar to the absence of the relative of motion between
earth and the supposed immobile aether that produced the Michelson-Morley null-result. When an orbiting electron is carried
by the aethrons of the atom-vortex it only radiates energy when it accelerates relative to the latter; in other words it does
not create a disturbance in the aether that would be propagated as an electromagnetic wave (radiation energy), unless it
accelerates within the atomic-vortex.
Expectation of the nuclear atom:
because the accelerating electron
radiates energy, the orbit decays
