Classical quantum mechanics (CQM) postulates that all matter is composed of particles of absolute size and shape in three dimensions that obey Newton’s laws and Maxwell’s equations at all scales. It has been shown that this provides excellent quantitative agreement with observation for a host of measured atomic phenomenon including ionization energies of virtually all atoms, magnetic behavior, excitation energies, and even scattering behavior. Moreover, there are no data that are clearly inconsistent with the predictions of this new quantum model; thus, it remains a valid theory. In the scientific spirit of discovery, we explore the consequences of the CQM model (in fact, the consequence of assuming any “extended three dimensional” model of elementary particles) for the fields of extended particles. It is shown that energy conservation, a requirement of any theory that purports to be consistent with Newtonian physics, requires that the static fields of all charged particles never disappear but only “appear to disappear” because of the masking by fields of oppositely charged (or spinning) particles. Moreover, the field of each charged particle must extend to the edge of the universe. Finally, it is logical to conclude that each charged particle material core and its associated static field are the “equivalent reference frames” of special relativity.
