In this paper a study of the two-particle hydrogen atom is presented, based on a purely classical Lagrange formalism. It will be shown that quantization (which is the essence of quantum mechanics) evolves naturally from the Lorentz invariance of the electromagnetic interactions. The fundamental conservation of (4-)momentum suggests a way to define mass.
