1) What is the nature of the electric field that comes from a single charge? Do virtual particles create this field? 2) What is the nature of the coulombic interaction between charges? (I know that like charges repel and opposite charges attract. But what is the nature of the repellence and the attraction?) If virtual particles are responsible for this field, how do they create this electric field? 3) How many fields comprise the universe? What are those fields? Are virtual particles assumed to cause these fields? How do virtual particles create these fields? 4) What came first, light or the photon? (Genesis of the Christian Bible tells us that light came first. What does quantum mechanics tell us?) 5) Any thought as to how the first photon originated? 6) How do DC and AC electric fields differ from electric fields that generate light? 7) Do you know of any websites, books or journal articles that I can read to gain an in depth understanding of these concepts?
