Looking at various ‘paradoxes’ from the energy current standpoint

There are many puzzling questions around the relationship between Maxwell’s equations and elementary particles. Many of them form unresolved paradoxes. Perhaps, physicists can explain them in one or another way, but these explanations are often fairly complex and difficult to understand by a more practically minded person.

For example:

I saw the following paragraph in the paper “A derivation of Maxwell’s equations using the Heaviside notation” by Damian P. Hampshire in 376, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences


“We suggest investigating an Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen experiment [17]. Typically, an entangled electron–positron pair is mixed and prepared as a superposition of states with equal and opposite magnetic moments (or spins). The charges are separated and the magnetic moment or spin of the electron is measured. The well-known instantaneous collapse of the wavefunction occurs, so that the positron ends up with the opposite magnetic moment (or spin) to the electron. The appearance of the moment of the positron is triggered by entirely quantum mechanical effects—no direct electromagnetic communication occurs between the electron and positron. Indeed, one can think about the two charges as a single entity. However, one can argue that we do not really know how the information that leads to the positron producing a magnetic moment of opposite sign is instantaneously received— beyond asserting it is part of the fabric of quantum mechanics, or part of the nature of a macroscopic wavefunction. We suggest that while the moment of the positron is being created (rather than excited), the production of the B-field associated with its magnetic moment may not be coupled to the production of any E-field at all. So, one could measure (∂E/∂t)r and (∂B/∂t)r in the wavefront of the positron, hoping to find B-fields with E-fields that are inconsistent with
Maxwell’s equations.”

I hypothesise that if we consider the (only!) postulate of Energy current ExH captured in finite space – pretty much as we do it in a section of Tx line, we should be able to explain the above entanglement of electron-positron as a superposition of states. My previous blogs about Wakefield 4 experiment exactly talk about the effects of this vein. We trap EM energy into a cap (Tx line section) and then short-circuit it. We have the effect of the “two-faced Janus” – where the same object switches between electron and positron states.
