Main Question or Discussion Point

I think I have two orthogonal solutions, ψ1 and ψ2, to the 1+1 dimensional Dirac equation with the same energy and momentum. How might you proceed to try and find some operator, Ω, if it exists, such that,

Ωψ1 = ω1ψ1 and
Ωψ2 = ω2ψ2 where ω1 ≠ ω2.

Must Ω necessarily commute with the Hamiltonian operator?

Thanks for any help!

Oops, after a little more care looks like ψ1 and ψ2 are not ⊥. Fugawezt!
