Hello rpenner, While quantum field theory has been extremely successful, we should remember that what I am describing is a proposal for a description at the sub-quantum level so it is not necessarily expected to immediately make different experimental predictions from those of quantum field theory. Then you might ask, what is the value of my approach? One possible answer is that in at least one area of application, quantum field theory apparently makes a very poor prediction. From Wikileaks:Cosmological Constant "A major outstanding problem is that most quantum field theories predict a huge value for the quantum vacuum. A common assumption is that the quantum vacuum is equivalent to the cosmological constant. Although no theory exists that supports this assumption, arguments can be made in its favor. Such arguments are usually based on dimensional analysis and effective field theory. If the universe is described by an effective local quantum field theory down to the Planck scale, then we would expect a cosmological constant of the order of Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!. As noted above, the measured cosmological constant is smaller than this by a factor of 10−120. This discrepancy has been called "the worst theoretical prediction in the history of physics!". " My article on the hypothetical cosmic quantum, at https://www.academia.edu/4429777/A_Transluminal_Energy_Quantum_Model_of_the_Cosmic_Quantum, is based on my transluminal energy quantum approach to modeling fundamental particles and predicts that our universe may have arisen from a single quantum dark matter boson with zero entropy. It also predicts two varieties of hypothetical dark matter WIMPs-- a boson and a fermion. Since dark matter apparently existed in our very early universe, my hypothesis could at least be plausible and worthy of a further look.
