In the Cordus theory, the strong force arises as the synchronisation of the discrete forces between neighbouring particules. This concept provides unification of the electric. magnetic. gravitational, and strong forces. (The weak has a separate causality in the Cordus theory). There is another interesting prediction that emerges from this theory, which is that the electric. magnetic. gravitational (EMG) forces are the interactions between discoherent matter, whereas the synchronous (strong) force is limited to coherent matter. This means that the strong force does not need the peculiar repulsive-strong-weak ranged characteristics that it is conventional given: instead the Cordus theory says that the strong force is simply switched off when the particules are not coherent.
This is another example of how physics from the non-local hidden-variable (NLHV) sector can provide fresh theories for old problems.

The conventional requirements for the strong force are that it is strongly attractive between nucleons whether neutral neutrons or positively charged protons; that it is repulsive at close range; that its effect drops off with range. However theories, such as quantum chromodynamics, based on this thinking have failed to explain nucleus structure ab initio starting from the strong force. We apply a systems design approach to this problem. We show that it is more efficient to conceptualise the interaction as interlocking effect, and develop a solution based on a specific non-local hidden-variable design called the Cordus conjecture. We propose that the strong force arises from particules synchronising their emission of discrete forces. This causes the participating particules to be interlocked: the interaction pulls or repels particules into co-location and then holds them there, hence the apparent attractive-repulsive nature of that force and its short range. Those discrete forces are renewed at the de Broglie frequency of the particule. The Cordus theory answers the question of how the strong force attracts the nucleons (nuclear force). We make several novel falsifiable predictions including that there are multiple types of synchronous interaction depending on the phase of the particules, hence cis- and trans-phasic bonding. We also predict that this force only applies to particules in coherent assembly. A useful side effect is that the theory also unifies the strong and electro-magneto-gravitation (EMG) forces, with the weak force having a separate causality. The synchronous interaction (strong force) is predicted to be intimately linked to coherence, with the EMG forces being the associated discoherent phenomenon. Thus we further predict that there is no need to overcome the electrostatic force in the nucleus, because it is already inoperative when the strong force operates. We suggest that ‘strong’ is an unnecessarily limiting way of thinking about this interaction, and that the ‘synchronous’ concept offers a more parsimonious solution with greater explanatory power for fundamental physics generally, and the potential to explain nuclear mechanics.
