If I understand you correctly you are saying in this post that the magnetic field exists. There fore I deduce that it is part of the photon, using your definition of a proton, not mine. But in the previous post you said that the magnetic field is not part of the photon.

It's a little confusing to me as I do not think either the electric or the magnetic field arepart of the photon. Instead they become the photon for the sake of interaction. But that is my personal view.

I was taught that both to electric field and the magnetic field were part of the photon.

Now you say it is only the electric field, but apparently it can be subdivided into the static field and the difference between the static and dynamic field. Which in turn means that only the dynamic field really exists.

My guess is that these are variations on gauge theory and that mathematically I might be able to find a solution of Maxwell's equations entirely in terms of the dynamic magnetic field. You do ascribe to Maxwell's equations? Right?
