Applied magnetic field? Of a color? what does that mean?

Vibration turning into sound, light, and magnetic forces. All modern day electronics rely on vibration, or frequency of quartz crystals to maintain precise timing for electronic circuits. The magnetic force is apparent all around us. It allows electricity to flow, wireless communication to happen, and most importantly alllows our heart to pump and nervous system to run. Understanding the fundamentals of magnetism you start to see how things in nature are held together. Never understood why we called it electricity. Why not magneticity? We produce electricity using magnetic fields. Lel electricity produces Magnetic fields. Yet electrons.... Ed from coral castle seemed to understand the importance of interrupting magnetic fields in Coral stone.

All photons have a magnetic and electric component. All light is made of photons.

Electricity is called such because it's the flow of electrons, the force of which was detected several decades (or centuries) before the magnetic aspect of electricity.

Electricity and magnetism are interlinked, it's called the electromagnetic field. The equations unifying these are called Maxwell Equations, and there's only 4 of them.

I don't really think the "applied magnetic field" picture means anything. I don't think rows 4-6 in that infographic have any real meaning other than to look cool.
