Quantum Units Wild Guess
In my model, the proton’s presence (three quarks if you like) is literally composed of the high density spots that form at the overlap of the multiple quantum standing waves within the proton; the wave/spot/wave action.
Spherical waves are bursting out of high density spots (HDSs), expanding spherically, overlapping, and forming new HDSs within the proton. It is a continual process where the wave energy out flow that escapes the proton from the surface spherically (equal in all directions) is replaced by wave energy arriving at the surface (directionally) from the out flow of wave energy from other particles. Thus the presence of the proton is maintained by the inflowing and out flowing standing wave action.
Let’s say that we can freeze the quantum action process that has established the presence of a proton. That freeze frame will contain a finite number of spherical quantum waves in overlap positions within the proton. Each overlap is a high density spot in my jargon. There are a finite number of high density spots within the particle space where the spherical waves have overlapped at the moment of the freeze frame. That close configuration of high density spots has stability because there is no niche on the surface for any additional surface quanta or high density spots in a stable environment, i.e. the surface wave energy out flow is equal to the wave energy inflow in a stable energy density environment, like at rest. (Increase the energy of the environment or accelerate the proton and there are more surface quanta and proportionately more total quanta, hypothetically.)
The question is, from what we know about the proton at rest, and from what I hypothesize about the process of quantum action at the foundational level, can we derive a ball park figure or even a wild guess of the number of high density spots (or shall we say quantum units) within a proton? A quantum unit would be the foundational unit of energy in a universe composed of wave energy in a foundational medium, i.e. in my model.
In this exercise you might point out that the units of measure don’t work unless we define the whole exercise in terms of a new unit, i.e. a speculative “quantum unit” that occupies an average amount of space per quanta in the freeze frame view inside a proton. We are not talking about energy in joules for example because the units of measure wouldn’t work. We are talking about energy in quantum units; quanta. Each quantum unit is a quantum of wave energy, not only the individual spherical waves, but the high density spots that accumulate a full quantum and burst into new spherical waves when "parent waves" overlap. So the number of quantum units would be the total number of spherical wave intersections that are present as hypothetically represented by the high density spots that form and burst into quantum waves. Supposedly we could count the HDSs in a freeze frame of the proton, and if we could we would know the total energy in quantum units of a proton at rest.
This hypothetical exercise is to put some perspective on the number of energy quanta in a proton and an electron at rest to quantify my idea of the composition of quantum units within a stable particle. For simplicity we will call these “average quantum units” which simply occupy the space within the proton; a quantum unit would consist of one high density spot at the overlap of multiple spherical quantum waves. This can also be thought of as the wave energy, in quanta, in a volume of space occupied by the proton, accounted for unit by unit in a whole number. I am suggesting the following widely speculative guess at the number of these quantum units within the space occupied by a proton:
I am using the approximate ratio of the rest energy of an electron vs. a proton, which is 1/1836, to equate the number of quantum units in the proton to the number of units in the electron which give me some basis for a calculation.
In addition, I am supposing that the number of quantum units in an electron is equal to the number of quanta at the surface of the proton for various reasons, but for this exercise that is just to have a relationship to allow us to do the calculations.
Area/Volume = (4 pi r^2)/(4/3 pi r^3) = 3/r = 1/1836,
therefore r=3*1836 = 5508, thus the radius of the proton is equal to 5508 quantum units.
4 pi r^2 = surface area of a sphere
4/3 pi r^3 = volume of a sphere
pi = 3.14159265
Quantum units in an electron = 381,239,356
Quantum units in a proton = 699,955,457,517
I'll just call it 400 million and 700 billion respectively, or even just hundreds of millions and hundreds of billions respectively .

From that link we get the number of quanta in a proton and we get the number of quanta at the surface of the proton, but that does not give us the number of inflowing and out flowing quanta. We can say though that about half of the wave energy of each surface quantum goes out into space, and half goes back into the particle space during each quantum period (the length of time it takes for all of the high density spots to form and burst into waves, once). Therefore it would follow that the number of quanta at the surface, divided by 2, roughly equals the number of quanta that are out flowing during each quantum period. Then we could state the containment ratio as the total contained quanta divided by the out flowing quanta during each quantum period:
Radius = 5508 quantum units
Surface quanta = 381,239,356
divided by 2 = 190,619,678 inflow and out flow in quanta per quantum period
Total quanta in proton = 699,955,457,517
Containment ratio 3,672:1
Time delay = 3672 quantum periods
If we use a heavier particle, like an accelerated proton that has, say 10,000 quantum units for the radius, we get a much higher energy containment, we have a much more massive particle, and we get a greater time delay, 6667 quantum periods.
These calculations are simply wild guesses intended to put the amount of energy contained in a particle, and the relative time delay associated with different masses into some perspective. The relative duration of the quantum period between different energy density environments will be discussed later. These ideas will be helpful when visualizing various aspects of the model, especially when we get back to the freeze-frame tool
