Subatomic Particles

The Simple Universe is a physics model that uses classical principles to model the
subatomic particles,
the ones that make up the atom.
A classical approach might seem to be at odds with quantum physics,
but by allowing each particle to have a shape,
breaks in symmetry occur that suggest that a
classical atom
is possible.

However it has not been possible
to model the quark particles,
so instead, the
proton
is modelled as a positron and two 'neutral' particles.
The inclusion of the 'neutral' particle into the physics
leads to the possibility of explaining quantum effects as a consequence of classical processes.

The subatomic particles are modelled pictorially and where possible as an animation.
From a realistic point of view, the animations are not proportionally accurate,
but nonetheless, are sufficient for analysis and deduction.

Ideally a 3D 'physics engine' of the model would be available
to remove the need for manual analysis and deduction.
