All particles have mass, in fact the discovery of the Higgs, simply proves that everything in the universe is energy, and we are working towards proof
on how that energy can become atoms.
On your thoughts on magnetism, Look at wiki.
"A magnetic field may be represented by a mathematical description of the magnetic influence of electric currents and magnetic materials. The
magnetic field at any given point is specified by both a direction and a magnitude (or strength); as such it is a vector field.[nb 1] The magnetic
field is most commonly defined in terms of the Lorentz force it exerts on moving electric charges. There are two separate but closely related fields
to which the name "magnetic field" can refer, denoted by the symbols B and H.
Magnetic fields are produced by moving electric charges and the intrinsic magnetic moments of elementary particles associated with a fundamental
quantum property, their spin. In special relativity, electric and magnetic fields are two interrelated aspects of a single object, called the
electromagnetic tensor; the split of this tensor into electric and magnetic fields depends on the relative velocity of the observer and charge. In
quantum physics, the electromagnetic field is quantized and electromagnetic interactions result from the exchange of photons.
Magnetic fields have had many uses in ancient and modern society. The Earth produces its own magnetic field, which is important in navigation.
Rotating magnetic fields are utilized in both electric motors and generators. Magnetic forces give information about the charge carriers in a material
through the Hall effect. The interaction of magnetic fields in electric devices such as transformers is studied in the discipline of magnetic
That being said how fast does an electron travel around a nucleus? (pssst... The speed of light.)
