Figure 9: System overview of the causes of bonding between protons and neutrons in the nucleus. The diagram summarizes the main features of the Cordus design of the proton: this is a nonlocal hidden-variable solution and it proposes that the proton has internal structures as well as a particular signature to the discrete forces (discrete fields) that it emits, likewise the neutron. The rest of the diagram identifies the two different types of synchronous (strong) bond being proposed here, namely, the cisphasic and transphasic states.
