What cause a particle with the property of electric charge to interact with other charges?
My way of thinking is that due the natural isotropy of the electric field of the electric charges any other electric field near the charge would cause it to become anisotropic, thus causing acceleration in the direction that the electic field is asymetrical to make it symmetrical again. Does the Pauli Exclusion Principle have something to do with it the electrostatic forces?
