  44. 44. Abstract A comprehensive description of the nature of light, electricity and gravity is provided in terms of quantum wave mechanics. Detailed models include the photon as a travelling electromagnetic wave and the electron as a closed loop standing wave formed by a confined photon. An electron is modeled as a torus generated by a spinning Hopf link as a result of an imbalance of electrostatic and magnetostatic energy. Electric charge is a manifestation of a slight precession characterized by the fine structure constant. The physical vacuum as a polarizable medium enables wave propagation and appears ultimately to be quantized at the Planck scale. Standing wave transformations for objects in motion are reviewed and Lorentz Doppler effects compared. The mechanism for generation De Broglie matter waves for objects in motion is depicted including the inverse effect of induced motion of an object by synthesis of contracted moving standing waves. Gravity is viewed as a frequency synchronization interaction between coupled mass oscillators. The acceleration of gravity is described by a spectral energy density gradient. Antigravity corresponds an inversion of the naturally occuring energy density gradient. Gravitons are shown to be phase conjugate photons. The metric of curved spacetime corresponds to the electromagnetic wave front interference node metric. Hence, the gravitational field becomes quantized. Quantum Wave Mechanics
