  AETHER - LoveToKnow Article on AETHER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Aethers were invented for the planets to swim in, to constitute electric atmospheres and magnetic effluvia, to convey sensations from one part of our bodies to another, and so on, till all space had been filled three or four times over with aethers.
This result is inconsistent with the aether remaining at rest, unless we assume that the dimensions of the moving system depend, though to an extent so small as to be not otherwise detectable, on its orientation with regard to the aether that is streaming through it.
The aether is taken to be at rest; and the strain-forms belonging to the atoms are the electric fields of the intrinsic charges, or electrones, involved in their constitution.

 Luminiferous aether - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the late 19th century the luminiferous aether ("light-bearing aether"), or ether, was a substance postulated to be the medium for the propagation of light.
This was initially interpreted to mean that the medium drags the aether along, with a portion of the medium's velocity, but that understanding was rejected after Wilhelm Veltmann demonstrated that the index n in Fresnel's formula depended upon the wavelength of light (so that the aether could not be moving at a wavelength-independent speed).
Aether theory was dealt another blow when the Galilean transformation and Newtonian dynamics were both modified by Albert Einstein's special theory of relativity, giving the mathematics of Lorentzian electrodynamics a new, "non-aether" context.

Aether was thought to be a fluid which was transparent, non-dispersive, incompressible, continuous, and without viscosity.
However, this theory required that matter moving through the aether should modify the velocity of the aether and that because of dispersion the relative velocity of medium and aether would be different for different wavelengths, thus requiring a different aether for each wavelength of light.
It rather easy to create aether theories which conform to the null result of the Michelson-Morley experiment, but it becomes increasing difficult to create theories that are consistent with all of the related experiments which are consistent with no aether.

 Encyclopedia: Aether
In physics and philosophy, aether was once believed to be a substance which filled all of space.
Among these characteristics, the aether had a non-material property, was "less than the vehicle of visible light", and was responsible for "generating metals" along with fostering the development of all bodies.
Robert Fludd stated that the aether was of the character that it was "subtler than light".

That, however, complete conduction should arrive with alternations only ten times slower than light was an unexpected and remarkable fact, which verifies the presumption that the process of conduction is one in which the dynamic activities of the molecules do not come into play.
The corollary, that the electric resistance of a metal can be determined in absolute units by experiments on the reflexion of heat-rays from its surface, is a striking illustration of the unification of the various branches of physical science, which has come in the train of the development of the theory of the aether.
These results constitute a far-reaching development of the modern or electrodynamic theory of the aether, of which the issue can hardly yet be foreseen.

 Why Speak of an Aether?
Thus the concept of an Aether as the domain of massfree energy, whether electric or not, is a functional concept that addresses the perception of the Imperceptible, of that massfree Imponderable that deploys even Space and Time as of all eternity.
The Aether is not a ZPE continuum, precisely because there isn't any electromagnetic continuum; nor is the Aether the same as Reich's orgone; the world of the Aether encompasses orgone as one of its subdomains, electric and within physical boundaries that science can ascertain and which Aetherometry has discovered.
The aether is not composed of farts, it is not composed of photons and it is not electromagnetic.

 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): The Aether"
The spelling "Aether" is used to help avoid the inevitable confusion of its similarity to the chemical compound ether, thus the old saw, "Aether is the medium of space while ether is the gas that knocks you out".
Aether is not a preferred reference frame (it could be, but isn't required to be).
To be a preferred reference frame, the aether and matter must be assigned certain characteristics, which is encompassed by specific models of aether.

 Unified Field Theory // Viewzone
Mass would mean concentration of aether, due to the Charan effect, which is mainly in the center of a subatomic particle or the center of a celestial body, because of the higher density (concentration) of aether there.
Since aether is not at rest in space, nor uniform, measuring the shift angle and its position would not reveal the absolute movement of the body in space.
The solar energy and the temperature of celestial bodies may be caused by the concentration of aether due to the Charan effect; the bigger the star, the higher the aether density and the higher the temperature.

 AETHER, GYRONS AND THE PHOTON   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
(Yes, aether, but this one is Lorentz invariant, and therefore the Michelson-Morley experiment does not invalidate its existence; on the contrary, it yields a correct model for the photon.) Also, there is no ether drag on matter, because matter does not fly through the aether, matter is a rotational dynamic state in the aether.
The gyrons are in perpetual motion in a manner that, in the collision process, the linear and angular momenta are separately conserved in the aether.
The local fluctuation in speed and density of gyrons comprising the aether, produces the Heisenberg uncertainties, and causes radioactivity; while the tendency of this gas to assume a minimum in the phase space, accounts for the principle of least action and, hence, Hamiltonian mechanics.

 Physics - Aether
That is, that the earth entrains the aether, causing it to rotate with the earth.
This implies that the aether would spin at the same rate as the earth on the surface of the earth and at an increasingly lower speed as one moves away from the earth.
This would be consistent with the aether entrainment model which predicts that as one moves further up from sea level there would be a greater relative movement of the aether compared to the surface of the earth.

The emphasis of much of recent research within CSCW is to provide awareness-oriented cooperation systems where users coordinate their work based on the awareness of what each other are doing or have done, as opposite to more traditional procedural-oriented workflow systems where some model stipulates how the users should coordinate.
Our approach is the develop a generic 'awareness engine', called Aether (Awareness Engine THeory and Experimental Realization), that should be a fundamental part of CSCW systems, while other functions are to be build on top of it.

It does move the wires during the start of electric current with big force and a small force is exerted during normal flow of the current.
As particles of Aether act as a magnetic field moving in space, they can be manipulated: diverted, concentrated, polarised or even rectified.
Such machines are already built and their principles take the form of a pumping action - catching the Aether particles - creating a magnetic field which is converted into electrical-mechanical energy and dissipating that energy as heat radiation.
