This is what is known as an adhoc theory where the results are essentially assumed. That is not to say that physicists do not do that all the time, or at least some of them some of the time. But usually the assumptins are so hidden that the average reader, no, the average physicist does not realize that the answer had been assumed. I did it all (no, really just some of)the time in working on Star Wars because it was a bluff meant to persuade the Sovtets to spend ten times as much money on a system that we knew could not work. It was inherently vulnerable. And the Soviets were vulnereable to bankruptcy. Reagan's SDI was the straw that broke the cmel's back.

So bottomline, the problem with what you have done and are doing is that it is too transparent. That the assumptions are the answers is too obvious.

By the way, assuming the answer is not considered kosher physics even though it is done quite often and sometimes leads to a better understanding, which is the light in which your work should be judged.

QED is already the most accurate theory ever developed. All you can add to that picture is a way for the average reader to understand it better.

Sincerely,

Richard
