Abstract

The interaction between charged particles through quasi-static fields must occur instantaneously; otherwise a violation of the energy principle would occur. As a consequence, the instantaneous transmission of both energy and information over macroscopic distances is feasible by using the quasi-static fields which are predicted by Maxwell’s equations. This finding is incompatible with the «relative simultaneity» following from the time transformation postulated by the special theory of rela-tivity.
