Pop quiz - electron magnetic field - dynamic or static

  • #1
An electron in motion carries a magnetic field ...

Quiz question:--

1. Does its magnetic field travel fixed to the electron, and is therefor a -moving- magnetic field and induces an electrostatic potential in a perpendicular wire reaching-but-not-preventing the electron...?

2. If not, Does this prove the existence of an absolute aether (not necessarily constant or stable) in which the magnetic field exists as the consequence of a passing electron ... or conversely existing...?

3. Or, Does an electrostatic potential exist solely by the passing electron "pushing" its way passed...?

Oh really? Answer this: In a frame in which the electron is at rest, what is its magnetic field?

Obviously, its presence ... but that's another quiz question topic-thread, on the structure of the electron itself in space ...

Think about: Does an electron exist apart from its electrostatic field?- No.

Then it is not an electron affected by an electric field but the electron's field, so affected ....

There is no electron, there is no magnetic field: The field is one, and is an activity of the aether ... But that's a harder answer than the original question, so please, stay with the topic: "An electron...carries a magnetic field" ... the motion was in the premise not the question.
