Mivey, I'd include the post quotes but they're get disjointed.
The electrical charge ALWAYS has an axial component. In an ideal conductor it is net zero NOT equal zero. The axial component is independant of resistance. The axial component of Work energy is proportional to resistance. The field effects are still there. They don't disappear. They just have nothing to latch onto.
Further in a normal conductor - the axial component of work energy is balanced by the equal and opposite reactive resistive work energy. If it didn't balance then the current would go infinite. The axial component doesn't create the resistance - it performs work on the existing resistance.
My apologies but this may sound harsher than I mean Mivey: You constantly argue that the energy travels between conductors then wave the keyboard and announce it doesn't require any conductors to travel. That's contradictory. Which is it? You can't sustain the first argument and simply declare the second can occur without explaining how it bypasses all your other requirements for transmission.
