In quantum field theory, vector bosons are subatomic particles known as force carriers which are the quanta of their respective fields. For instance, the photon is the quanta of the electromagnetic field, thereby mediating the electromagnetic force. In particle physics, fundamental forces are seen to arise from the emission and absorption of virtual ...

Ok you say in an act of faith, and then QTF experts say that there are no virtual particles, they are just a calculation trick. The "trick" part is the assignment of the name "photon", "gluon" , "Z", "graviton", to the mathematical model that allows to predict the interactions of the four forces seen and classified as electromagnetic, strong, weak, ...
