|The mathematical field
|A field is a region, a chunk of space,
a portion of nothing, you know, like a
piece of a pie. The purpose of this
region is to accelerate charges
through the region.

|A region can never attain indepen-
dence from its references. Unlike a
piece, a chunk, or a portion, a region
is not a stand-alone object. Once we
cut a portion of pizza, it stands alone.
We can’t do this with a region. A field
is not formally defined as a piece or
as a portion of space. It never has.
A field is defined as a region of
space. Therefore, by definition, a
field cannot stand alone.
