Default selectivity of sodium channel

Hi everyone I have this idea about the nerve impulse transmition between a nerve (motor end plate) and a muscle
.. As we all know the nerve impulse propagation is in a form of a fluctuating curve (accoding to graphical representation ) due to the change in ion concentration the electricity accompaning or produced by the nerve impulse is an Alternating current or electric.Now lets have a closer look toward the alternating current properties it's accompained by a magnetic field . If u put in considration the structure of the sodium channel ( a sodium channel is made of subunits but the most prominant one is the alpha subunit. Alpha subunit is made of 4 main domains each domain is made of 6 main segments .The junction between S4 and S5 is known as P loop which is believed to be related to the openning of the gate .The loop itself is made of leucine charged amino acid). According to simple laws of physics there is no such thing as steady structure all the particle are in a state of continous motion or atleast vibration.when a magnetic field interact with a vibrating body it will cause what's known as electromagnetic resonance .Which will cause the vibration of the atoms of such molecule in higher amplitude .Now lets see what we got here .We have a charged particle that vibrate in a magnetic field that might cause electric induction and also it will produce a magnetic field of its own that is maybe known as voltage sensor which was mentioned in "kandel princible of neurology" but no reason was provided for its occurance. Now the induced current in the gate itself can produce electrostatic potential energy where the work done by this electricity is the work done to move the particles to the gate and the charge of the amino acid is the limiting field of attraction to the out side paticles which maybe Na in this case and not any other atom.
. Thank You
