Photogenesis: How Motion Becomes Matter

Research Article

Robert J Martineau


Photodynamics refers to the dynamics of particles, like the photon, that have a rest mass and travel at the speed of light. Recently we derived an energy-momentum theorem which provides the dynamics of such particles. In this paper we derive the same theorem from a slightly different point of view which better illustrates the connection between kinematics and dynamics. We use the photon, and its associated photokinetics to reveal how its rest mass is created. We reveal the same process at work in Quantum Mechanics. We then discuss the process of Photogenesis which we believe, at the fundamental level, is used to create matter, and argue that it has universal applicability.
