By starting from a quaternionic separable Hilbert space as a base model,the paper uses the capabilities and the restrictions of this model in order toinvestigate the origins of the electric charge and the electric fields. Also,other discrete properties such as color charge and spin are considered. Thepaper exploits all known aspects of the quaternionic number system and it usesquaternionic differential calculus rather than Maxwell based differentialcalculus. The paper presents fields as mostly continuous quaternionicfunctions. The electric field is compared with another basic field that acts asa background embedding continuum. The behavior of photons is used in order to investigatethe long range behavior of these fields. The paper produces an algorithm thatcalculates the electric charge of elementary particles from the symmetryproperties of their local parameter spaces. The paper also shows that the usualinterpretation of a photon as an electric wave is not correct.
