Overcoming the repulsive Coulomb force requires a couple of tricks, including getting as many neutrons as possible into the nucleus.
The single-superforce idea is taken here to mean that the superforces associated with General relativity [5] and the Newton and Coulomb forces have the same magnitude.
The crevice, or energy minimum, is created by the Coulomb force, which causes positively charged protons to repel one another, together with quantum mechanical effects, elongating the nucleus into a superdeformed shape and giving the nucleus a measure of stability.
The strong force can be compared to the intrinsic Coulomb force discussed in this context, also in respect to a possible quark model being somewhat similar to that of the electron as described in Section 2.
It is significant that neither the fine structure constant nor the observed electronic charge appear in the Dirac equation, for it further suggests that the bare charge of the electron interacts directly with the bare charges on the individual Planck particles within the PV, without the fine-structure-constant screening that leads to the Coulomb force [e.
In the most basic interaction involving say a doublet of two oppositely charged point masses, the Coulomb force is the most dominant.
While the Coulomb force is a dominant feature of this activity, we suggest that the primary basis of chemical reactivity is the magnetic interaction.
