I'm not talking about electric fields here, but a separate field which is the cause of us being able to observe/measure/predict that there is an electron there. according to this video: An electron is an excitation in the electron field, just like a water wave is a excitation in a body of water. Is this true? Is this what an electron really is, or is this just a model, or an unproven idea? I'd quite like this to be true, its a really nice idea. Also, I study electrical engineering not physics, so please consider this when answering. Thank you!
