Vacuum polarization rearranges virtual pairs. This causes the virtual pairs to rigidify in vacuum, reducing the quantum fluctuation energy. The quantum fluctuation energy is a fundamental force of vacuum, as evidenced by the Casimir effect. The change in quantum fluctuation energy was simulated in the superposition of the electric fields. The results show that the increase and decrease of the quantum fluctuation energy between the two point charges is related to the repulsive force and attraction in Coulomb's law.
