Mechanism for the 2 Fundamental Forces
Lori Gardi produced an excellent video explaining the mechanism driving a mutual instantaneous force which acts at inverse-sqare of their mutual distance, like electric and gravity. She includes a response to Ken Wheeler and his doubt of fields.
What is a field?
In my opinion, she explains the mechanism for the real electric force between 2 charges and the real force of gravity between 2 masses. Both the electron and proton always emit 2 fields which diminish in strength by distance from the source:
1) a field for its electric charge which was defined by Maxwell,
2) a field for its mass.
Each force is mutual so the decrease in the real force is by the square of mutual distance.
The 2 fields are pervasive, so the mutual force is instantaneous.
Gravity and Electric forces are real, driven by fields, not driven by a fictitious fluid pressure or other mechanisms.
