The onium theory evolved from the relativistic positronium solution discovered by Milne, Feynman, and Sternglass and takes into consideration the known mass quantization of particles in units of me/α and me/2α where me is the electron mass and α is the fine structure constant. The relativistic positronium mass is approximately a factor of me/α multiplied by its two particles. It is equivalent to the neutral pion. In the onium theory only electrons and protons are elementary particles and they are the components of all unstable resonances. The theory accounts for their composition by considering the total number of pions in their most complex decay modes. The tau particle has 8 decay modes to two kaons and at least 30 decay modes to the equivalent of four pions, indicating it is much more complex than a simple excited muon. In the onium theory, tau particles are composed of two kaons in relativistic orbit making them kaonium. They are effectively a lower energy D meson. This paper also examines the composition and masses of other kaonium resonances. In onium theory mu and tau particles are mesons rather than leptons, and they are not elementary.
