The Effect of Charge Movement
On Other Charges

By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

When an isolated charge moves, that movement generates an E and B field that travels away toward infinity.  As that field moves away from the charge, the field will interact with all the charged particles it encounters.  Those distant charges will then move in response to that field.  The movement of distant charges will generate an E and B field which will travel back and move the originating charge.  

This cycle of movement creating a field, and field creating a distant movement, which creates a field which creates reciprocal distant movement, etc will continue forever, but the effect becomes every smaller with each iteration, to the point of practical insignificance.  Nevertheless we must note that such 2nd, 3rd, 4th order effects, etc are present in every physical interaction involving particles, fields, and movement.  Thus, when analyzing physical systems, we must be aware that such effects of decreasing significance are present.  When analyzing a system, we must first determine the purpose of our analysis.  Before subtle effects can be parsed, we must identify the major effects operating in a system such as position, time, velocity, and force.  If the secondary and tertiary, etc, effects can be detected and analyzed, these signals can reveal signatures about the historical experience of a particle.

In summary, the sequence is: 1) movement by the original particle, 2) field generated by the charge moving, 3) field causing movement of charges at a distance, 4) the distant charges moving generating a field, and 5) finally that field influencing the movement of the original charge.  This full duplex influence of source and target on each other is reflective of all physical processes.  The change affects the source, which affects the target, which affects the source, which affects that target, etc.  This iterative, diminishing effect gives rationality to the 1st, 2nd…nth order derivatives.


The qualitative assessment of this effect is that a moving charge has an effect on its local environment, and its distant environment, and vice versa.  The fully reciprocal (action-reaction, re-reaction, re-re-reaction…) nature of particle-movement generated EM waves creates an incredibly complex web of interaction as the EM waves travel to infinity.  The result is that a charge moving ultimately interacts and affects all other charges in the universe, and those charges moving eventually affects the original charge.  And at some point and number of iterations, this cycle of original action, secondary reaction, tertiary reaction, etc, becomes vanishingly small.  In fact, at some distance, the number of Force Particles striking an area may be so sparse that only widely scattered regions may capture and be affected by Force Particles.  Thus, even though FP capture may occur in only a small percentage of the total spherical area at a great distance from a charged particle, which we can still be certain that energy is conserved, and that the inverse square law holds over time.
