Hi Eric, I think Hotson suggests that epos have 0 mass. As I understand it, only positive energy charges have mass. According to Hotson, protons and neutrons are comprised of electron and positron lattices - perhaps in a stabilized positronium-like cluster. Each of the electron and positron has mass because every charge has mass. Epos loose their mass by becoming a quasi-neutral particle due to orbiting at the Planck scale. However, due to the counter-rotation, epos do appear to have an elementary magnetic dipole, and also have a freely rotate-able electric dipole at right angle to the magnetic axis. I find it fascinating that the most elementary construct of the ether would have magnetic and electric fields constrained at right angles!

The epo's electric dipole does not count as a charge termination, hence no mass. Thus, in the vacuum, there are no monopolar charges and no magnetic monopoles. Even the electron in positive energy space (according to Hotson) is not really a monopolar charge. I think he thinks of the electron as a dipolar charge with the positive portion pointing into imaginary space. Think of it as a ball floating on the surface of water. The air-water boundary being the real/imaginary (or real/other-dimension) boundary. The negative charge points into the air and the positive charge points into the water. In the spinor solution of Dirac's equation for the epo, as the electron and positron orbit, they get rotated across this dimensional boundary and switch between being electrons and positrons in synchronism.
