I chalked it up just as another way your system is not mathematically self-consistent.

You have your ur-electron claimed to be "like a photon" so one would think you were using the model of quantum field theory but then

1) it doesn't obey conservation of momentum

2) it doesn't obey the deBroglie relationship

3) it doesn't seem to be a quantum particle at all

4) its motion isn't independent of choice of standard of rest.

So, given that it's motivated by no compelling divergence of observation from theory, it seems you are willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater in favor of filling the tub with tapioca. You are trying to understand the 1928 Dirac single-particle model for electrons in terms of a conceptual mechanical model and ignoring the (c. 1934) quantum field theory many-particle physics which doesn't have the same problems. It is the latter approach which is used in (c. 1950) quantum electrodynamics which has had the successful descriptions of electron interactions at all scales down to fractions of a femtometer.

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.[16]

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

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.
