Wave/Particle Duality in Cathode Rays

Wave/particle duality can be understood in terms of a cricket ball that has got an inbuilt oscillator that makes it expand and contract. When such a cricket ball moves in a trajectory, we can plot a sinusoidal graph of its diameter against either time or distance travelled. We will have all the mathematics of a wave motion even though we are actually dealing with a particle motion. In electromagnetic radiation we have a coherent flow of aether whose density changes cyclically in relation to both the frequency of the emission source, and also in relation to the vortex flow through the rotating electron-positron dipoles of the electric sea. This cyclic alternation in aether density can lead to the wave characteristics that are associated with constructive and destructive interference. Cathode rays are also known to exhibit constructive and destructive interference and so we will now examine what the cause might be that explains the associated cyclic pressure alternations.
