Is particle more than the sum of its fields?

So how does e.g. electric field look around such dispersed elementary (indivisible!) charge?

Look for example here for "new family of solutions to Maxwell's equations that are knots of light that do not disperse or lose their specific topological properties as they propagate.": http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/...ghtintoknots And generally Noether theorem says that a field is rotationally invariant, it conserves angular momentum  so if e.g. electron changes orbital angular momentum, there has to be created EM wave carrying this angular momentum  photon.
