 +An interesting alternative perspective was put forward by Hestenes in his paper [[http://​geocalc.clas.asu.edu/​pdf/​ZBW_I_QM.pdf|The Zitterbewegung Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics]]. In this paper he argues that spin arises due to the permanent zig-zag motion of electrons (and all other particles). This zig-zag motion is the result of permanent collisions with background Higgs bosons which cause chirality flips from left-chiral to right-chiral states.
