|The Leptonic Theory of Matter|
|The initial appeal of the leptonic theory is its simplicity. The standard theory of particles has electrons, neutrinos, quarks of six flavors each of which has tree colors, gluons, plus all of the corresponding antiparticles, plus photons. The leptonic theory, as envisioned by Assim Barut (I am most familiar with Barut's theory having worked with him, but I should also mention B.G.Sidharth) has only photons, electrons, positrons and neutrinos. All other particles are bound states of these four.
In the standard theory, a proton consists of three quarks. If it is created, and antiproton consisting of three antiquarks of the same flavor and color must be created. In the leptonic theory, a proton is a tightly bound state of two positrons and an electron. Instead of being bound by gluons they are simply held together by their magnetic fields. Therefore we could create a proton-electron pair (a total of two electrons and two positrons) without violating particle-antiparticle symmetry or any other conservation laws.
If matter is created where matter exists and is created in electron-proton pairs, then there should be evidence of hydrogen coming from the earth's interior. The absence of this hydrogen was once used as an argument against matter being created in the earth. As it turns out, there is evidence of so much hydrogen emanating from the earth's interior that Hunt, Larin and others have formulated the hydridic earth theory around it.
