In both images we see the north pole is up and south pole down. But wait a minute. In the first image, what pole is directly in front of us and what pole is on the other side of the electron? What pole is in front and what pole is behind the electron? So let's go inside the first image and stand on the north pole above the electron. We look down, and see the same thing!? The north pole is again up and the south pole down, huh? It's nowhere and everywhere in the same time, how can this possibly be? Where is that line which usually goes through the both poles and always has a very specific direction, like on the second image? Which way to the north pole?
