As quantum physics nowadays tries to reframe and explain electric and magnetic field phenomena, we must not be mislead over the fact that quantum physics remains a “stepdaughter” of field physics based solely on postulates until eventually it will have found a way to calculate its quanta. Furthermore, field physics is at least 25 times older and can be traced back all the way to the early Greek natural philosophers. Vortex physics is another offspring of field physics, however, it has been systematically rejected by quantum physics. Which in turn often times has a lot to do with politics and not always with science. It could in fact be the case that vortex physics has been suppressed by its own “sister,” ever since it also has produced distinguished representatives. A mathematical derivation shows that the currently known formulas and laws of electrodynamics are incomplete and insufficient in describing all its associated phenomena.
