Now the above makes an important distinction between spin and charge. Charge is a basic property of a particle for it is the geometry of the particle. But the direction of motion in terms of spin is not a fundamental property of a particle, but is rather a effect due to the other particles in the vicinity.
The Coulomb law is the charge law and it is there no matter what other particles are nearby.
The Ampere law is the spin law, and it is about "direction" of a particle relative to other particles in the vicinity. Spin is not inside the particle in question, but is there when there are two electrons and the question then becomes, what direction are they moving relative to one another. So spin is a group effect, not an intrinsic characteristic. So that if two electrons are moving in antiparallel motion or in parallel motion then they each have a spin because their motion demands a spin. But if electrons are in isolation of one another, they have no spin, for they do not attract or repel each other.
So charge brings the Coulomb law into existence, not the other way around. And where Ampere's law brings spin into existence, and not the other way around.
For example, if we bring two water molecules close together, they have residual charges to affect one another, but they do not have residual spins to affect one another.
So when we talk about the photon or electron or proton or neutrino and ask for the spin, is a rather ridiculous question to ask since neither of those particles is in a state of motion surrounded by other particles to make a Ampere law thereof. An electron by itself can have a spin of +1/2 or 1/2 or 0 spin, but when in a special setting of an electron in a helium atom, then it is an electron in parallel motion and thus has a spin.
So charge is a basic property of a particle but spin is a conglomerate affect on a particle.
