Kinetic Energy, Momentum, and Inertia
By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

As stated many times above: A moving charge forms a magnetic field around itself.  This fact is part of the symphony of electrical and magnetic forces that interconvert dynamically to explain why mass exhibits the phenomena of kinetic energy, momentum, and inertia.  As a moving charged particle approaches any arbitrary point in space, the electric field at that point increases, which causes the formation and building of a magnetic field at that point.  The building magnetic field at that point forms an E field opposing the increase in E field, which pushes against the advancing particle.  This is the force of inertia opposing acceleration of the charged particle.

On the receding side of the moving charged particle, at a point behind it, the E field is decreasing.  The B field induced in that space because of the associated movement is of opposite direction (to the advancing side of the moving charged particle) because the E field is decreasing (and B = dE/dt).  

Also, the B field built up during the time the charge was approaching a point collapses after the moving charge passes that point.  Thus, the collapse of the B field corresponds to the generation of an E field that repels the receding charge.  

The sequence is thus: 1) the velocity of the charged mass is opposed as the mass enters into a space, and 2) the velocity of the mass is supported as it leaves a space.  

The net effect is to create a mass with a constant velocity.  Thus, once a unit of kinetic energy is applied to the particle by an accelerating force, the mass maintains that energy until another force acts on the particle to redirect its velocity.  Thus, Newton’s First, Second, and Third Laws of motion show themselves to be based upon electromagnetic underpinnings.

This entire hypothesis about the electromagnetic basis of kinetic energy, mass, momentum, and inertia is based upon the thesis that all mass (even neutral mass such as a neutron) is composed of charges (positive and negative DPs) which emit an E field.  Thus, the endless formation of B fields induced each moment by the movement of charge, and the E fields induced secondarily in response to the changing B fields, are the forces and field phenomena underlying the storage of Kinetic Energy.  Alternatively, the magnetic field and electric fields produced in response to the moving charge are the field-equivalents of the energy of motion.

Obviously, this method for the generation of the reactionary B field is hypothetical.  This hypothesis is controversial because as noted above the rate of change of the B field precipitates a self-induced change in E field (and vice versa).  The question is ultimately, “What is the mechanism of that induced change of B field due to changing E field, and vice versa?”

A change in E field automatically produces a change in B field orientation (after a  of the local field delay).  Likewise, a change in B field orientation automatically produces an E field, and a corresponding separation of charge.  Clearly the E field effect on B field (an vice versa) is transient, as we see that a static dipole charge is held by a capacitor without magnetic properties, and a steady state current through an inductor has no charge buildup.  

The most likely solution to this problem of mechanism of mediation of this effect is the individual particles themselves.  Not only do they emit Force Particles with a particular magnetic orientation, they emit directional E fields, and B fields, based upon the previous history of the incoming fields.
