Ah .. now getting drawn into the myth.
In the mythology of Quantum Physics there are the Newtonian forces; gravitation and electromagnetism, as well as the Particle Physics forces of Strong and Weak. These magical forces are theorized as having the ability to reach out from a source and affect a distant object such as another subatomic particle. And in order to explain how such forces get around and affect particles, the mythical "force carrier particles" had to be imagined (gluons, gravitons, photons, and W&Z).
With force carrier particles, one can then imagine that a small portion of each force is carried from one force source particle to another force destination particle thus allowing for the "exchange" of the substance called "force". Whatever happens during a nuclear interaction can then be explained by proposing that the appropriate force carrier particles exchanged whatever force was necessary so as to achieve the witnessed result. Each of these carrier particles is a "virtual particle", meaning "not really a particle but we are going to talk about each tiny amount as if it was an actual particle
In reality, and in Einstein's understanding, there is no force and thus no force carrier particles. No such particles have ever been observed but only proposed to be responsible much as fairies in the forest being responsible for the dew on the leaves. In modern mythologies, in order to explain the unknown, one need merely refer to "subatomic carrier virtual particles" rather than fairies or spirits.
In RM:AO, the Afflate is the only "virtual particle" and it "carries" (is actually made of) a small puff of affectance. The propagation and accumulation of the affectance causes the end resultant effects. There are no forces in RM:AO. There is only the propagation and accumulation of affectance. And the exact process and cause of such propagation and accumulation as well as all end subatomic effects witnessed for centuries is fully understood. There is nothing mythical, magical, nor lacking in full and complete understanding within RM:AO (very unlike Quantum Mythology and Relativity).
