The Origin of Electric Charge. Local Vacuum Dynamics and the Fabric of Space-Time.

I present the idea that electric charge is a dynamical result of the primordial vacuum energy field interacting with a particle in confinement, i.e. the electron. A concept called Local Vacuum Dynamics is introduced and proposed as the mediating factor governing confinement, rest mass, electric charge, mass attraction, and null geodesics.
