Electromagnetism being mediated by space-time rather than particles or waves is based on the validity of the Minkowski space-time metric. Energy held by a quantum object A at an event 1 can jump to a quantum object B at an event 2 provided the proper interval separating the two events has zero magnitude. This proposition has been dismissed and even held to ridicule by members of of physics forum. To simple soul the theory seems to provide a self-consistent description of electromagnetism. The inconsistencies created by wave-particle duality are removed. The entanglement of spatially remote objects can be explained and the abrubt changes in the eigen values of wavefunctions become understandable. And the integrity of special relativity is maintained. So what exactly is the flaw?
