I suppose you acknowledge that Maxwell's Equations describe all there is to know about the way Electric and Magnetic Fields behave. In which case, if you attempt to give an 'explanation' of an electromagnetic phenomenon, it should follow from those equations.
Whatever the "conduction thing" is, Maxwell governs what happens. Maxwell applies to a simple battery and bulb circuit, a transformer, a coax cable, waveguide, near field - far field EM power transmission - everything. If you want to quote from a Patent as a form of proof of your ideas then that is not valid. There are millions of Patents based on absolute nonsense; we all know that.
Your simple "single conductor" system would need some more detailed description, along with measured results, to a reasonable standard.
"wire connection" involves EM just as much as a Radio transmitter. Read your EM theory. Not all EM waves are radiated waves.
