Another catastrophe in the making?

It’s funny, but I feel the scientific atmosphere may resemble that of the end of the 19th century: what was supposed to be the triumph of classical physics (with Maxwell publishing his famous equations of electromagnetism) suddenly turned into a catastrophe: the ultraviolet catastrophe, to be precise. And it required an Einstein to publish a radical theory altering the world view (relativity theory). I feel a similar catastrophe – and a better theory of quantum mechanics as well, of course! – may be in the making. Hence, I couldn’t restrain myself and thought it’s time for some fun. So I wrote the following letter to the Nobel Prize Committee.

Let’s see if they react. I don’t think so, but then one never knows, right? 🙂


Dear Sir/Madam – I am just an amateur physicist but, having followed the popular physics scene for many years now, I feel I must alert you to a growing feeling that the Nobel Prize Committee may have been awarded to some rather ‘non-productive forms of atomic theory’ lately.

The mainstream interpretation of quantum physics has been criticized severely, both by professional as well as amateur physicists (for a very professional critique, see – for example – the latest article by Dr. Consa:

Also, awarding a Nobel Prize because experiments reveal ‘signature signals’ of the hypothesized W/Z bosons, quarks and/or Higgs particles do not confirm these ‘intermediate vector bosons’ or these (virtual and non-virtual) quarks and gluons actually exist. There are also other credible ‘mechanisms’ explaining mass and/or the anomalous magnetic moment (the ring current model of electrons and protons, on which I publish myself (see: and is just one example of what I think of as credible alternative explanations).

To many of my colleagues – amateur physicists just like me – it feels like the Nobel Prize Committee has really been in a hurry to ‘consecrate’ the Standard Model asap. If this is to confirm the ‘triumph’ of the mainstream interpretation of physics, then I am afraid the effect is just the opposite.

This is just an opinion, of course – but I just wanted to alert you to it – because the unease with the ‘Standard Model’ seems to be spreading quite rapidly lately and has become very palpable, I would think. In this regard, I refer to books such as Hossenfelder’s ‘Lost in Math?’ and other ‘mainstream researchers challenging other mainstream researchers.’

Kindest regards – Jean Louis
