No, it doesn't match what Minkowski said. Or

what Maxwell said:

*"a motion of translation along an axis cannot produce a rotation about that axis unless it meets with some special mechanism, like that of a screw".* Or what actually happens to particles in a magnetic field. Or bog-standard

electromagnetism wherein

*"the curl operator on one side of these equations results in first-order spatial derivatives of the wave solution, while the time-derivative on the other side of the equations, which gives the other field, is first order in time".*
People tend not to appreciate this spatial and time-derivative stuff. For an analogy, imagine you're in a canoe on a flat calm ocean, and then this big troughless hump of water comes at you. This represents electromagnetic four-potential, see the bottom half of the picture below. The degree of slope of your canoe denotes E, and the rate of change of slope denotes B. At the top of the hump, your canoe is flat and momentarily still. That's where the sinusoidal electromagnetic wave is at zero. The sinusoidal electric wave maps out the slope of your canoe, the sinusoidal magnetic wave maps out the rate of change of slope of your canoe. But there aren't really two different waves. They're just two aspects of the electromagnetic wave.
