This is one of those foundational questions that is difficult to answer.

*How **exactly does the photon emerge from the electron? How is light absorbed by matter? *

Even asking how an electron physically emits a single photon is a meaningless question from the zero-dimensional point perspective of quantum mechanics: it can only go so far as to explain it in terms of quantum changes in energy levels. And wave theory does not extend to single particles.

However cordus is a non-local hidden-variable solution, so it has additional variables, hence this opens up more dimensions to its available solution spaces. We have been working on this emission problem for a while, designing possible solutions. Now we have some new ideas to suggest, and recently put them out for scrutiny.

We show that it is possible to develop new insights into this problem, based on the cordus model. We start by predicting the structures of the photon and electron, both the internal geometric sub-structures, and their discrete fields. Then we go on to explain how the photon is created and separated out of the electron, in terms of how the fields arise.

Now we can start to put explanations towards those fundamental questions. Q: Why exactly do electrons emit photons?

*Answer: Emission of photons is an escapement mechanism whereby matter particules that are over-prescribed in position can get rid of that energy. *
