sir, what is pi meson theory and quark theory? are they related? do neutron and proton have independent existence in a nucleus?
The quark theory proposes organizing particles into 2 quark particles (called mesons examples: the pion and kaon ), 3 quark particles (called hadrons examples: the proton and neutron) and 5 quark particles (pentaquarks).
There are 3 groups of quarks, Up/Down, Charm/Strange, and Top/Bottom, and each of these quarks has a corresponding anti-quark. The proton is made of a combination of up, up, down quarks (with a mixture of quark and anti-quarks in the combination); while the neutron is made of up, down, down quarks.
Assuming that a quark is an elemental conscious particle produces a very complex system composing many different particles and particle types. Such an assumption results in a theoretical system populated by far too many elemental particles, each of which would follow its own unique programmed laws of behavior.
Thus, we shall postulate that the quark is a subatomic orbiting assembly of Negative and Positive DPs. This system would allow any quark to exist which could maintain an identifiable level of stability, or what we shall call a resonant state.
The bonding of proton and neutron is considered to be a manifestation of the strong force, but reframing the interaction as a sharing of particles shows that the Strong force is not a force at all,
