However, he also explained that if the electron has enough kinetic energy that the reaction could occur You have misunderstood something. It is not enough for the electron to be in a frame where it has large kinetic energy, it has to also interact with some other particle, so a neutrino can go off with the electron quantum number. This is because an ...

And it should be possible to arrange a maser that will tug charges sideways in one direction, and never back the other way. The sideways forces it makes would not cancel out. ...

It is very important to understand the difference between real photons and virtual photons. Now when you need to create EM attraction between two objects, to pull, you need to create a static EM field, that might have the effect of attracting other objects. This is caused by the static EM field that the object (charge) would create, and that static EM field ...
