Particles to be viewed macroscopically as an electrodynamic light wave must make up a coherently spatially arrayed flux of electric dipole photons. The photons must move as a function of time and initial conditions along trajectories prescribed by the integrals of their velocity w, given by w = S/E, where S = Ψ∂Ψ/∂t, E = ( Ψ)2/2 + (∂Ψ/∂tc)2/2, and Ψ is a solution to the wave equation. Since a distribution of induced electric dipoles in a medium yields a resultant electric field, the polarization, it may be assumed that a flux of photons as electric dipoles in free space will yield the observed electric E field of a light wave. It is shown that such a flux of electric dipoles generates the observed magnetic B field for a transverse light wave. No magnetic field accompanies a longitudinal light wave, the electric dipoles being aligned in the direction of propagation.
