Inspired by: As a nuclear physicist and researcher for many decades, it's frustrating to witness new technologies not being used to their maximum potentials. My inspiration also stems from the original Lorentz theory. A long time before quantum mechanics, Lorentz suggested that some disturbances, like waves, could be transmitted with traveling particles through the vacuum without moving. Lorentz was ahead of his time and this approach led to the natural introduction of the field values (group velocity and intensity of de Broglie waves) into Maxwell's equations and antimatter (antiparticles or modes with negative group velocity) into Newtonian mechanics.
