Actually the resonant particle increases its geometrical reaction cross section, thus
intercepting not on the Poynting component intercepted by a static unit charge, but also some additional
energy from the surrounding and unaccounted Heaviside flow component.
In short, Bohren's experiment
decisively proves the presence of the unaccounted Heaviside energy flow component.

And to most other branches of physics.
The effect upon quantum mechanics of the introduction of
hidden order inside every potential — including the quantum potential — would seem to have startling
consequences.
Similar hidden order exists inside every ordinary EM field and wave, if we add
superpotential theory where two potential functions comprise any EM field or wave.
Each of those two
potentials is subject to direct alteration of its internal Whittaker structuring, which
at least in theory
can be
engineered.
In stripping the interacting charge of its self-fields and self-potentials, Lorentz-Dirac electron theory
eliminates the associated deterministic, negentropic ordering of the vacuum surrounding any charge or
dipole.
As Hestenes puts it,
"The electron in the Dirac theory is an emasculated charged particle, stripped
of its own electromagnetic field, like a classical test charge.
The central problem of quantum
electrodynamics... is to restore the electron's field and deduce the consequences.
This is the self-interaction
problem.
Whether, in the ultimate solution to this problem the electron will emerge as a true singularity in
the field or some kind of soliton... is anybody's guess.
One thing is certain, though, the problem is nonlinear.
And if quantization is a consequence of this nonlinearity... then the self-interaction problem can never be
solved with standard quantum mechanics; a more fundamental starting point must be found."

The
quote is from p. p. 33.
A potential impact on general relativity and particle physics looms, where at least in theory any
spacetime curvature is itself internally structurable by smaller ST curvatures produced to order. Thus precise
sets of ST curvatures, or "engines" tailored to perform specific actions on mass, including inside the atomic
nuclei, or even inside a nucleon itself, may be possible.
