The objective here is to emphasize the derivation of the electromagnetic field equations from simple, understandable physical considerations, instead of regarding them as arbitrary assumptions. The factors of symmetry, continuity, and propagation determine these equations. These are large-scale attributes of field structure, so we can readily recognize and accept the fact that small-scale structure involves additional factors which do not appear in these equations.
