This follows my recent email below, and will clarify
what I was saying.
On p261 we see spelled out the forces on two parallel conductors
which appear when two TEM Waves from opposite directions travel
through each other. Transposed to the PN interface of a diode, this
means that as the voltage difference across the diode interface
builds up, the TEM Waves travelling to right and to left are of
the same polarity, so there is an increasing physical force of attraction.
However, when the diodes "begins to conduct", the returning
TEM Wave is of opposite polarity, so a force of repulsion begins
to grow between P region and N region. Meanwhile, of course, more
and more energy is being trapped in the very thin interface between
P region and N region.
This is very far from Conventional Wisdom, which does not have TEM
Waves vacillating sideways along the PN interface. Also, Conventional
Wisdom ignores the idea of physical force, which I admit I tend
to forget. However, not that all of this is not revolutionary. There
is really no sense in denying, once it is pointed out, that the
power/energy is delivered to da diode, it is delivered via the space
between the two wires connected to emitter and base. It enters the
diode sideways as opposed to the conventional wisdom.
Now the appearance of physical force may be irrelevant to the true
working of a PN diode, but it should certianly be considered. Then
we move on to consider the physical forces in a switching transistor.
You see here what a mass of potentially very rich research and discovery
is blocked by the suppression of each and every insight gained from
the appearance of high speed digital logic fifty years ago. It is
not only revolutionary, or heretical, developments like "Theory
C" that are suppressed. Even natural developments in classical
electromagnetic theory during the last fifty years are suppressed
and blocked, like consideration of the physical forces involved
in a PN diode.

Note http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/6_6c.htm , the extraordinary addition
to http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/6_6.htm , and which mentions Josephson.
These lines of development are so very rich, it is a tragedy that
they are all suppressed.
