The more I learn about fields the more confused I am about them. Do the
particles create the fields or do the fields create the particles? Does
that question even make sense? What IS a field?
I do tell my students that an electric field (for example) is a real
thing, just as real as the charged particle that creates it. But
thankfully, no one has asked me to elaborate on "create."
