my presentation last year, I noted some 22 fundamental flaws in present
electromagnetics theory. One of these flaws was in the actual
vector theory itself. As we shall discover, one cannot simply plug
geometrical vectors into physical systems without making fundamental
errors. The vector concept itself must be adapted, for there are
now four different kinds of vectors in physics, all confused as the same
thing. We will come to that shortly.
let us look at the fundamental kind of experiment, shown on this slide,
from which the idea of electrical force and electric field was taken.
We have a
fixed static charged object q(l) in the laboratory, and we bring in a
test charged mass q(2). The test charged mass may even be a single
electron, as we illustrate here. We show in our example the fixed
charge to be negative. When we release the test charge electron,
it accelerates away from the fixed charged mass, as shown on the
diagram. Note that we have no force at all until we bring in the
test charged mass. Indeed, we shall find that the force is actually COMPRISED
OF the accelerating test electron. Specifically, it is not
something mysterious which appears in vacuum and PUSHES on the electron.
We shall find that FORCE IS AN EFFECT, NOT A CAUSE. It CONSISTS OF
the "smeared mass" that is accelerating -- in this case, it
consists of the smeared, accelerating electron.
the experiment: in the absence of the charged test particle, no force
exists in the vacuum. When we bring in the test charged mass, it
accelerates away, and THE FORCE CONSISTS OF THAT ACCELERATING CHARGED
MASS PARTICLE. The experiment does not at all address or deal with
WHAT EXISTS IN THE VACUUM AROUND CHARGED MASS Q(l) IN THE ABSENCE OF
TEST CHARGED MASS Q(2). Any assumption of a force existing in the
vacuum is sheer speculation and not based on this experiment.
