Even allowing for such "virtuality," sounds like what we have here is a symmetrical charge bubble. >transduces it into real observable EM energy, "Transduces" what via how? Unless you're going to show me some kind of trans-virtual flux, I just don't see how that can happen. >and continuously emits observable photons radially in all >directions. So the photons are passing through the virtual charge shell? Huh? >The emitted energy establishes and replenishes the associated >fields and potentials expanding toward infinity at light speed. So we've got virtual flux growing as a result of photon transmission, but how do we have an infinite expansion with photons, which are blocked by dense matter? >This solves the long-vexing problem of how the charge produces >its associated EM fields and potentials and what furnishes the <input energy. It boils down to explaining (not) an unexplained effect by using hypothetical and unproven concepts. If you don't pay attention to what Bearden is actually saying, you get the notion that you understand and that he's said something important, but it turns out his "explanation" is as virtual as the charged particles he talks about.
