One may have noticed from my recent posts that my head has been spinning lately, or more specifically, I’ve had spin on the mind. It is a frustratingly puzzling piece of the picture I’m trying to wrap my head around. Here’s the latest mind bender I’ve been grappling with. Although separate fundamental properties of subatomic particles, Spin and Charge do appear to have a spurious relationship with one another. Specifically, like charges do not like to be around one another, and like spins also do not like to be around one another. Similarly, opposite charges like being around each other, and opposite spins like being around each other. I’m not an expert here, but from my understanding the main difference between the two phenomena is that the spin property does not have its counterpart to the EM field and the Coulomb force that charge has. However, I do think the spurious relationship is notable…that is, both properties, spin (via the Pauili exclusion principle) and charge, play equally crucial roles in maintaining the structure of the atom and, as a result, the structure of matter itself. Moreover, each do so in a qualitatively similar manner by which the binary property of a “state” of the particle must be paired with its counter-state in order to achieve a stable system. My question is has there been any effort into drawing a link between these two phenomenon based on the argument I just made?
