A suspicion about water: does it become a nitrogen 'dihydride' crystal as it freezes!

I've had revolutionary ideas about water ever since 2004. I've actually suspected that as water freezes it becomes a sort of nitrogen 'dihydride' crystal, with one of its oxygen's protons turning into a neutron and a positron (plus a neutrino). Each positron would in turn eliminate an electron to create energy.
The nitrogens would make available extra electrons for bonding, around each former oxygen's nucleus and these would be the ones involved in giving you the full 3 dimensional structure of ice, which is currently attributed only to differences in electro-negativity of the water molecules (i.e. weak hydrogen to oxygen from one molecule to another). Furthermore, what fits neatly into the picture, is the fact that the nitrogen to nitrogen bond appears to be longer by an amount that could account for the expansion of water.
However, I've always been embarrassed about voicing such an opinion... surely in this 21st century we'd know about it if this was true! I'm releasing this suspicion now in view of the fact that my rainmaking project was released some 3 days ago on my website.
In view of the foregoing, I suspect that a new understanding about water is dawning... and as far as I am concerned I am trying to be just the spark needed, and this is why I've only done this in a qualitative way... I'll leave the quantitative version to the experts in this field.
