    1.0   The versatile field of Mathematical Physics

    Researchers write about observing, [1] interacting with, [2] manipulating, [3] aligning, [4] and trapping [5]
    fields. Foremost among its properties, the field has the ability to affect the behavior of physical objects. [6]
    A field is alleged to impart acceleration to particles, [7] heat up the Sun’s atmosphere, [8] alter ferromagnetic
    temperature, [9] induce crystallization, [10] and change the shape of structures. [11] In order for you to
    understand what these theorists are talking about, you have no alternative but to come to terms with this
    formidable word.

    The all-encompassing field currently enjoys two definitions that at face value seem to be related to Physics:

    “ an assignment of a quantity to every point in space.” [12]

    “ a region of space” [13]

    Here, I will refer to the former as the mathematical definition and to the latter as the physical definition. I
    intend to show that neither of these definitions has anything to do with Science.


    2.0   The mathematical definition of the word field

    The mathematical definition of field differs from the 'physical' definition in that it is comprised of abstract
    quantities. More objectively, the definition merely says that a field is an act: the act of assigning numbers
    and magnitudes. A quantity is a number, [14] and a number is defined as an abstract entity: a symbol used
    to describe a quantity. [15] Indeed, the fact that mathematicians characterize the field using adjectives such
    as high [4] and zero [16] only reinforces the irrevocable quantitative nature of the mathematical field:

    “ field: a mathematical entity which can be thought of as a collection of numbers” [17]

    The word entity is really misleading because it insinuates that the mathematical field has a physical nature.
    Mathematical ‘entities’ and ‘objects’ are without exception abstract concepts.  A concept differs from an
    object in that it cannot be illustrated or visualized. Therefore, if the mathematical definition equates field
    with quantities and numbers, this automatically places the word under the list of concepts. For the purposes
    of Physics, a number is an abstraction. Like the spirit and angel of religion, a number lacks the muscle to
    move physical objects around. The mathematical notion of field is divorced from Physics because, by its
    very nature, it lacks the potential to explain a physical phenomenon. The mathematical field is a description
    of what the mathematicians observe


    3.0   The Physical notion of the word field

    The 'physical' definition equates field with a region of space:

    “ field: the space around a radiating body within which its electromagnetic oscillations
      can exert force on another similar body not in contact with it” [18]

    I refer to this as the 'physical' definition because it is the one the mathematicians invoke in the context of
    particles moving through or being accelerated by a field. The notion the mathematicians have developed
    is that a field is made of particles and that it has the ability to affect iron filings or to deviate a celestial or
    charged body from its path. A field is a region that surrounds a charged particle, or it refers to the
    gravitational aura that envelopes a celestial body. The mathematician attempts to pass the words space,
    region, and field for physical objects and use them to explain an observation of the real world. The
    insinuation is that a field is a halo that surrounds a body and which has the power to affect the behavior
    of other objects.

    Up front, we must reject this definition because it is circular. The words field, region, and space are
    synonyms:

    field: a region of space... region: a portion of space…space: the infinite extension of
      field” [19]

    As long as the mathematicians define these strategic words in terms of the others, they will never
    understand what they are talking about.

    But, assuming that the mathematicians somehow overcome this obstacle, they have an even steeper
    climb attempting to convince a rational jury that they can ascribe any physicality to a region. It is
    absolutely ludicrous for a mathematician to state that a region can interface with and move particles.
    It is even more absurd to claim that a field can move abstract concepts such as 'charges' and 'masses'.
    The word field should be placed in its proper context, which is outside of science. The word field was
    invented to refer to those observations that the theoreticians didn't (and still don't) understand: why
    iron filings buzz around a magnet like bees around a hive, or why an asteroid is deflected from its path
    when passing near the Earth. To turn this on its head and say that the field affected the iron filings or
    deflected the asteroid is an irrational interpretation of the phenomenon and a gross twisting of the
    language.  

    For instance, assume that suddenly and for no apparent reason the flowerpot sitting on your window
    sill falls to the floor and breaks. You now describe this experience to your neighbor, but rather than
    stating the facts objectively you color your narrative with a personal explanation. Instead of saying
    that the wind, or that an earthquake, or that the window knocked the flower pot to the ground, or that
    you don't know what happened, you say that a spirit touched it. Or assume that a pygmy from the
    jungles stands near a heater in your apartment and explains to his son that an invisible halo emanates
    from the artifact and that this magical aura has the power to hold a paper in the air and provide warmth.
    These are what we call Ptolemaic explanations. The choice of words is crucial. It is not the same to say
    that a spirit or a halo surrounds the fan than to say that the fan stirs up the invisible air around it.

    This is the fundamental problem with the mathematical abstraction known as field. The word field
    cannot be used as a noun for the purposes of science. It does not designate a standalone object that
    may itself be the subject of the dissertation. The word field is itself a mystery, a question mark. Faraday
    invented it to refer to an unknown, and 200 years later the word still remains undefined. All the
    mathematicians alive today have forgotten this and treat the word field as a physical object. They
    don't say that the word field refers to a mysterious behavior in which a particle magically accelerates
    through a region around a magnet. The idiots say something stupid like that 'the field accelerates the
    particle' or that 'the particle accelerated through a field'. Without realizing it, the numskulls are treating
    the word field as a physical object that possesses a surface. They are saying that they can film how
    the surface of a field comes up against the surface of the particle and pushes it forward.

    Therefore, it is first absolutely necessary to destroy the idiotic notion of Mathematics that the word field
    represents a physical object or medium. There is no such 'thing' as a field. A field is a concept,
    a word used to refer to the entire process. The word field represents a verb; not a noun.

    The Harvard Mathematics nods in agreement. "Of course! A field is a mathematical concept. I knew that!"

    " The notion of a field is very useful in science as most theoretical descriptions of
      the physical world are made in terms of fields. One talks of gravitational, electric,
      and magnetic fields in physics. Here one is describing scalars and vectors whose
      elements are real numbers and for which there are laws of addition and multiplica-
      tion which cause these quantities to form not just groups, but fields. Thus all the
      abstract mathematical knowledge of groups and fields is available to the scientist
      to aid in understanding physical fields." [20]

    No! He has yet not understood a thing. He cannot possibly have understood if he uses scalars and
    vectors, talks about adding and multiplying fields, and is alluding to a physical field. So I continue
    attacking Faraday's idiotic word field until the morons of Mathematics get the message: they cannot
    use the word field at all! It is prohibited in science!  We cannot ascribe physical qualities to a field such
    as the ability to touch or move. We cannot add and subtract physical fields. The mathematicians routinely
    discuss field dynamics. They unquestioningly believe that a field has the ability to interface with a 'charge'
    or a 'mass' and to move 'it' through itself. None of these words -- charge, mass, field -- can be used as
    physical objects in science. None of these words represent 'things' that have shape and the ability to
    move.

    Here, I present an analysis of different aspects of the word field to illustrate how it is used by 'scientists'
    and to demonstrate why this formidable word cannot and should not be used in science. If, as I argue, a
    field is not a physical object, every 'scientific' paper written since Faraday invented this magical word
    that treats the field as an object is summarily declared null and void. It is irrational to treat a field as it has
    always been treated: as a physical object. It is irrational to ascribe motion to a field. A field lacks the one
    thing that would allow its usage in Physics: shape. A field is not and cannot be made of particles as the
    idiots of Mathematics believe. It is not a standalone entity, it is not a medium, and it cannot affect the
    motion of particles. The word field is a sign of ignorance and not of wisdom or knowledge. By invoking
    the explain-it-all word field, the mathematicians haven't explained anything. Indeed, even their description
    is suspect because it is based on an undefined word. I will go further and propose that anyone who uses
    the word field to explain a phenomenon of nature should be kicked out of science. The word field belongs
    exclusively in religion. For the purposes of Physics, a field is where the cows poop! It doesn't go beyond
    that.
The mathematicians
have no idea what a
field is

...and up here we have the
strawberry particles that make
up the electric field, the vanilla
corpuscles that comprise the
magnetic field, and the
chocolate-coated, 0D points
that constitute the gravity field.
And here at the bottom we
have the veggie-green
particles that constitute the
wheat field. Any questions?
