Abstract
The equations of modern fundamental physics are difficult, if not impossible, to understand because they are expressed in terms of the secondary constants G (Newton), ℏ (Planck), and α (fine structure). The emerging Planck vacuum theory derives the primary (fundamental) constants associated with these secondary constants, enabling the equations of modern particle physics to be intuitively understood in terms of the free particle and its coupling to the vacuum state. What follows is a review of some aspects of this new theory, including inelastic electron-proton scattering and the antiparticle aspects of these two particles.

It is accepted knowledge in the footnote that the line element ds does not apply to the elementary particles because the gravitational radius R_0= 2mG/c^2 [=2r_c(mc^2/r_c)/(m_*c^2/r_*)] “of the particle” is many orders of magnitude less than the particle's Compton radius r_c. This argument is specious because R_0 does not define a particle radius, as R_0 is a particle/PV parameter.
