The Second Quantum Revolution
Quantum mechanics has been dormant since the early 1930s and our travelers were lucky to have tripped over its resting mass destined to be executed by a gang of over active coders to become just another artificial intelligence application.
Virginia, Bertie, and Jeeves took up physics hoping to understanding quantum mechanics. In the process they take a grand tour on an old sailing vessel and aid a sow in distress. On their journey they discover physics is not as difficult as they imagined. After dismantling physics they reassemble it in a form where gravity, the strong force, the weak force, and electromagnetism all stem from understanding a gambling strategy known as the fair-game.
We need characters to both lighten the plot and bring some light to the subject. The simple creations of P.G. Wodehouse can be dropped into any time period, but are particularly adapted to both the present, 1900, and the early 1930s when troubles were ignored. Our story about quantum mechanics is best told with the help of these characters who respond to a culture of fashion and conformity by cheerfully dismantling the nonsense and in the process shed light on the dark. The neutrino will now be in her proper weightless supporting role. That great cultural divide between science and the arts first expounded on by C.P. Snow was found to be a mere ditch that could be stepped over. The sins of the past were multiple violations of the conservation of energy, forced notions about mass, and non-physical geometries. By defining mass without the aid of the Standard Model, particles and their physical properties are much easier to describe. The electron now has structure and is no longer captured in a point. The structure defines the electrostatic field removing the need for the single virtual photon of quantum electrodynamics. The Gluon and Axion are also no longer required to shore up the nucleus. The God particle gets demoted to be another unstable boson. The action of our story is triggered by an EU directive to normalize pork production, eliminating non-conforming breeds. This puts a beloved and overly large sow in danger of an experimental program to automate faux schnitzel production using accelerator beam technology. These cave dwelling accelerator technicians picked on the wrong hog.
Rather pleased at having saved the sow and finding a gambling strategy to revive quantum mechanics, a text was left with a few problems for those who like to see how things work.

About the Author
Attended Hampden-Sydney College starting 1999 and studied physics, then took geophysics at Montana Tech in 2003. I have coauthor four longer works in physics: Dark Matter from Light, The Principles of Matter, amending quantum mechanics, "yes Virginia, quantum mechanics can be understood", and Terrestrial Nuclear Processes on cold fusion.
Table of Contents
1) Fashion: Lacking understanding of the role of language led fashionable committees to flawed quantum models.
2) Spaces: Mathematicians ignoring experiment introduced their own fantasy spaces for physics ensuring ignorance.
3) Faust and the Neutrino: Using relativity to derive the basic equations of quantum mechanics restores an experimental science.
4) Dimensions: Introducing statistical independence within quantum spaces producing information, matter, and fields.
5) Information: Information’s two forms produces the quantized fields for both photon and neutrino.
6) Quantum Roulette: Structural derivation of spin for particles and fields buries a long standing abstract fantasy about spin.
7) Forces: A topic that no longer needs avoiding in quantum mechanics by eliminating some poorly made assumptions.
8) Landfall: The structural origin of gravity and strong force complete the trip tying the four forces to Bertie’s fair-game
