A property of the space-time: space-time occupied by a particle is an inverse function of its mass


The two great theories of physics, the theory of relativity and quantum theory, contradict each other in the space-time description. However, these two great theories and some theories that are trying to merge them are concordant that space-time no longer constitutes a simple inert screen on which natural phenomena are projected. This unanimity should encourage to explore more advantage the fundamental properties of space-time. Also, on the basis on the observations that quantum mechanics shows that the electron seems to follow several trajectories simultaneously and the theory of relativity which shows that the trajectory of a planet is very well defined, we postulate the following principle: In a space-time, the smaller the mass of a particle is, the bigger the space-time occupied by the particle is. For example, if we consider three particles without internal structure of sizes of an electron, a tennis ball and the planet earth, with this principle, it can be stated that the electron particle occupies more space-time than the tennis ball, which itself occupies more space-time than the planet earth particle. This principle of space-time occupied raises a number of questions. An initial analysis shows that the principle is compatible with the inertial mass, the gravitational mass and de Broglie's hypothesis. The agreement between the principle and de Broglie's hypothesis indicates that the principle can be extended to particles of zero theoretical mass. The question of the influence of interactions (weak, strong, electromagnetism and gravitational) on this principle remains central. If these influences are proven and are of the same order of magnitude, then they can constitute a fundamental basis for a merger of these interactions. A first idea for a possible application of the principle may be to analyze the evolution of stars especially that of the Sun or a black hole devouring a star. A preliminary analysis to the evolution of the Sun provides some possible explanations why the Sun’s corona temperature is much higher than that of its surface layer (see annex).
