(Please define how you have determined a differential velocity.
Is the entity velocity with respect to you causing you to be the second entity?
As you can see the velocity is always with respect to a second entity.
You can not have a single entity with a velocity because it is not moving with respect to itself.)

lol Duane, you put so much in a post its like climbing Mt Everest to deal with... lets take the above snippet...

i'm at a loss for the correct phrase but all entities such as electrons, atoms, ect. have an intrinsic energy, an (average?) motion if you will, its called zitter*&%@# or something like that. well anyway you can see the sense in the idea that nothing is ever absolutely still when you ponder the laws of thermodynamics. nothing can reach absolute zero. essentially heat is a result of motion and vibrations of molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. so no absolute zero implies no absolute stillness. the law of uncertainty also implies that absolute stillness is unobtainable and along with the de Broglie equation that quantized energy levels are the rule. the point being an electron say or what ever has an intrinsic wavelength regardless of neighbor entitiies.
look in your physics textbook there should be some text referring to a particle in a box. that classic problem should discuss the wavelength nature of a single entity whether it is an electron in the box or a marble.

regards, tim
