On the Possible Deeper Structure of Leptons and Quarks: A View of the “Ultron”-“Logotron” Theory


The deeper structure of leptons and quarks is still not experimentally and/or objectively clearly elucidated. No detailed accepted theory is yet established. Consequently, experimental and theoretical physicists have been investigating to find experimental or objective proofs related to the deeper structure of fundamental elementary particles in quantum physics. The author proposed a hypothesis of the “ultron”-logotrn” theory that might explain relationships between self and consciousness: mind and matter on the basis of his review of modern quantum physics and his personal experience of valid precognitive dreams, and further published an article that describes a considerable parallels between Confucian philosophy and quantum physics from the ontological perspective. Ultrons are the building blocks of matter of the universe. Logotrons are the building blocks of conscious mind. In this study, possible deeper structures of leptons and quarks: yin- and yang-ultron with mass of 0.16 eV, electric charge of _ and +1.602176565 × 10-19 coulomb/(3.19 × 10-6 _ 2k) (see Equations (7) and (8)), size less than 1.616199 × 10-35 m, total number of ultrons as well as number of yin- and yang-ultrons in a neutrino, electron, positron; and up, down, strange quark (see Equations (2) to (6) and (9)) are presented on the basis of reported data in particle physics and the perspective of the author’s hypothesis of the “ultron”-“logotron” theory.
