With an on-the-shoulders-of-giants approach, he lightheartedly dances from Isaac Newton's great understanding of gravity and light to Thomas Young proving that light was wave-like to Louis de Broglie's notion that light and, indeed, all matter somehow have the characteristics of both particles and waves to Faraday, Maxwell, and then Ernest Rutherford discovering the nucleus of an atom to Einstein doing his supernaturally astounding things -- onward, upward, inexorably forward to other prominent current-day scientists.

The Elastodynamics of the Spacetime Continuum (STCED) [16] has similarities to Bohmian mechanics in that the solutions of the STCED wave equations are similar to Louis de Broglie's "double solution" [17,18].
In fact, the basic idea behind it was formulated in 1927 by Louis de Broglie in a model he called "pilot wave theory".
The topics include the genesis of wave mechanics, Schrodinger's cat and her laboratory cousins, digital and open system quantum simulation with trapped ions, the Bohr-Schrodinger dialogue on quantum discontinuity, and a few reasons why Louis de Broglie discovered Broglie's waves yet did not discover Schrodinger's equation.
“The separate identity of each String as Wave or Electric or Nonmetal, Particle or Magnetic or Metal, and Wavicle or Electromagnetic or Metalloids were deduced from the discovery of Photons and Electrons by the following Nobel Prize recipients; Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Louis de Broglie, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrodinger, James Maxwell, Richard Feynman, Ernest Rutherford to name a few and their colleagues.
