I keep going back to Gustave LeBon's book, The Evolution of Matter, where he discovered a way to change radioactive decay rates but never really described the process in detail. Given it was published in 1907, it must be a relatively simple process. The answer is probably in there, but I just missed it.
From what I recall of my partial reading, didn't he describe more of a channeling than a decaying process? Channeling might narrow down the possibilities of what's going on

Yes, LeBon considered radiation to be a "renewable" resource as it is not from the atom, itself, but from the environment the atom exists in (3D time).

Larson considers radiation to be a temporal explosion, where the explosion occurs in one shot in time, but it takes clock time to run across all the pieces in our material environment.

I am finding a little of both... beta and gamma decay appear to be from linear motion within the time region, most likely from solar flares pushing material to FTL speeds. It can be thought of as a "cosmic solar flare" where the CCME (Cosmic Coronal Mass Ejection) moves through 3D time in clock space that we see as instantaneous and emitting from atoms, versus the material CME that moves through 3D space and clock time, taking a few days to get here.

Alpha decay appears to be age-limit disintegration of a part of the atom's rotating system, to try to make it stable in the environment.
Every dogma has its day...
