Fig. 2 The Dirac Sea: space is made of particles
Conceptual problems if field = space
|No! Your halo field is
not made of particles,
Bill. It is made of
energy. Now give me
back my key chain you
little brat. This is the
last time I baby-sit you!
|The assumption that space is comprised of particles carries with it the implication that there
is a backdrop
A. What should we call the interstitial regions between spherical space particles?
B. What delineates and gives shape to each cubic space particle? What remains behind
when the accelerator rips particle pairs from the fabric of space-time?
|A. If gravitational field = space and
the gravitational gradient drops as
we move away from the Earth, what
has changed in the constituents of
space? Have they become smaller?
B. If electric field = space and straight
electric field lines diverge farther from
the charge, what do we propose to
call the ‘space’ between the lines?
|Mapping of Jupiter's magnetic field
|Field made of discrete particles versus field made of a single piece (i.e., continuous).
|Proponents of the 'discrete' field should not even mention the field but limit the discussion
to the sub-components that push against the test particle. They are saddled with the burden
of showing how these subcomponents interface with and cause the particle to accelerate.
Con-versely, proponents of the 'continuous' field must explain how the test particle
manages to divide what is conceptually made of a single piece.
