Einstein presented a different notion of the universe with his 1920
essay "Ether and the Theory of Relativity". What he termed the
'gravitational ether' came from a completely different idea. Motion
and particulation, he said, can't be applied as properties of the
aether because it is one and has no components. This oneness can be
used to explain action at a distance and inertia.
CMBR is material, and Einstein's aether is physical but immaterial.
First there needs to be an aether before we can have fields,
spacetime, matter or a CMBR.
Physical because it helps determine ratios like the permittivity and
permeability of free space. Ratios on which the existence and behavior
of all fields entirely depend. Without fields you can't have any type
of matter/particle. And immaterial because it lacks properties like
extension or motion, it does not move and it has no parts or
components in the material sense.
Extension is a material property not applicable to the aether. Density
is also a non-applicable property when defining the aether, it is only
applicable when describing matter. Space (CMBR) is material. Space and
matter are inseparable, and properties like density and extension do
Einstein's Gravitational Aether is the background, it is physical but
immaterial, it lacks any landmarks, therefore the Universe, in a
material sense, is background free. There isn't an absolute time
because there is no preferred frame.
Einstein's Aether is more akin to Newton's absolute space than most
people think (this is why he sees it as background free), but it is
imbued with Mach's reciprocity between matter and space, and
relativation. It is Newton's absolute space mixed with Mach's aether.
The reason that, in Einstein's spacetime, frames must be related is
because it all comes from a single entity, reality is one single
process. All frames within the observable universe are related through
the aether. All frames depend, in every way, on the aether.
Relativity can only refer to relative time or length because it is the
description of a whole where objects are physically dependent on each
other. In other words, if an object could be conceived to be
accelerating in a perfectly empty void, independently from any object
or frame of reference, it could not experience any changes in time or
length, but because objects are embedded in a continuous field, a
metric which represents the whole, and because the whole's energy is
finite, objects exhibit relativistic effects in relation to each
other. Because the propagation speed of fields (and light) is not
relative (frame independent), and because of wholeness, homogeneity
and a physical need to abide by the laws of thermodynamics, we have
This is probably what triggered Einstein's interest in Bohm's
'undivided wholeness'. He understood that for there to be a continuum,
and for Relativity to hold, the Universe must be conceived as a whole.
He eventually became a Pantheist, he simply saw no other choice. Why
else would an object's dimensions depend on its surroundings if it
wasn't for this wholeness?
If the aether were not physically finite, then why must we include
covariance when describing the motion of a material system under
acceleration? The aether is a physically finite substance, but is
spatially unbounded. If the aether were not physically finite, then
why would the equivalency principle be necessary when describing the
motion of a material system under acceleration? Still, it can be
conceived as infinitely divisible, or indivisible; simply because it
is immaterial. Space (CMBR) is material and spatially bounded, in
other words, you can speak about space in terms of size and
separation. Because the aether is physically finite, matter is also
finite, but infinite as a function of time and transformation. Nature
is the perpetual motion machine.
But we have to be careful with meanings here. What Einstein was
referring to as 'empty space' is more akin to nothingness than the
empty space we usually talk about. Remember that at the time Einstein
wrote "The Ether and the Theory of Relativity" QED was probably only a
crackpot's dream. He thought that, in order to obtain an empty space,
it was possible to extract all matter from a given volume. It wasn't
until Timothy Boyer that we began to understand the different meanings
of 'empty space'.
We must not to confuse the concept of space outlined by QED with
Einstein's gravitational aether. CMBR is an observable material
phenomena with mechanical properties like density and pressure. The
gravitational aether is a physical but, non-material, non-measurable,
non-observable, yet very real substance.
Problems arise when you fail to grasp the notion, which arises from
Relativity, that Einstein's space doesn't exist by itself, neither
does time nor matter. Space is an extension of matter. Space tells
matter what to do, and matter tells space what to do, they can't exist
independently from each other. Matter and space are one and the same,
and time is just a product arising from the process and activity it
takes to in-form and create reality.
CMBR is a mix of the particles that make up material space. Like
light, also known as EMR, which are considered particles, and ZPR,
also considered particles, but of a very different nature.
What I call aether is before this material space, it is what Einstein
called 'the gravitational ether'.
What I call space (sometimes material space) is not the same as what
19th century and early 20th century physicists called space (now
called 'the classical vacuum'). Back then there were no CMBR, nor
Wheeler's quantum foam. That's why Einstein couldn't conciliate
Relativity with Quantum Mechanics. Today, space is considered to be
material, a collection of small particles which many now call dark
matter (CMBR). That's why modern physics now say that space is grainy.
Gravity occurs as a result of drag caused by material space (quantum
matter), as concentric matter waves constantly flow into matter as
quantum matter (space) condenses and crystallizes to its objective
state (particulate or rock like state).
Space particles (dark matter) are carried by matter-selective,
inwardly flowing quanta, in an electrical current. Just like electrons
are moved by electromotive forces. Now, if material space is made from
particles, then it may be subject to changes in pressure and density,
like a gas. Therefore, if space particles carried by matter waves
continuously condense into material objects, that would mean that the
closer you get to the object, the denser space would become as a
function of the object's mass and radius, explaining why gravitic
pressure, as described in flowing space theories, also obeys the
inverse square law.
The gravitational field, as described by Einstein, is continuos, what
is quantized is the CMBR. As morphic fields (as well as other fields)
surrounding rotating bodies cut through the CMBR, there is a friction
which creates matter-waves, just as EMR is created when you shake an
electron. These matter-waves, or matter selective quanta, are pulled
in by an electromotive force orthogonal to the direction of rotation
of bodies, inwardly pulling ZPR particles (which are components of the
total make up of the CMBR) to the center of the system. This process
depends on the characteristics of the matter-waves, which in turn
depend on the characteristics of the rotating body. This model
explains why some planets have greater concentrations of some elements
Gravity is caused by this space flow. Picture two bodies, like the
Earth and the Moon, now imagine space flowing into the Earth and into
the Moon at the same time, that's what causes gravitation. Because
there is a flow going in opposite directions, and material space's
density decreases, there is a drop in pressure, making objects and the
material space around them to drift towards the lower pressure region
as pressure tries to equalize itself. That's how we get tide movement;
the Moon casts a shadow, so to speak, causing gravitic pressure to
drop between the two bodies, consequently making the sea level to rise
where the shadow was casted.
"Reality is not about things, it is about process" -------- Lee Smolin
Inertia, as conceived by Galileo, meant a resistance to change, and
process is synonymous to change. Reality is process and gravity and
inertia are products of this process. Inertia is the result of 'aether
drag', a resistance to change in space flow rate, into and from the
particle, as the particle moves through space/medium.
Inertia comes from the tension or 'informational lag' created by a
system as it changes its rate of space/information flow, or... as it
accelerates within the chaotic medium, not from particles colliding
against accelerating objects. It is a momentum/information exchange,
through EMR, between a particle and space, as they continuously need
to reset their spatial relationships in order for thermodynamic laws
to hold as required by the Equivalency Principle. (Unruh-Davies
radiation and Timothy Boyer's 'equilibrium spectrum' )
While a particle is moving at a constant speed and all the geometrical
parameters are set, it won't experience any inertial forces, but as it
accelerates and the relationships change, it needs to keep adjusting
to its new energy/space consumption settings. That's why relativistic
effects are so real. When accelerated in relation to other particles,
space shrinks, time slows down and mass (process) grows within the
particle to balance energy usage in momentum space and maintain its
dependence and relation to spacetime in accordance to energy
There is a delay as matter reaches thermal equilibrium with its
surroundings. We experience it as inertia. This is the nature of
Timothy Boyer's 'equilibrium spectrum'. It takes time for any moving
object to reach thermal equilibrium with its surroundings, as it jumps
from frame to frame in spacetime! Each frame being, in reality, marked
by the collapse of each matter wave-front, like a quantum clock, as
inwardly flowing matter-waves bring within them some of the
information necessary for each quantization, before completing each
objective state. Each object having its own rate, its own wavelength,
or, its own pulse, so to speak.
Information about a material system must be contained within the
system, it doesn't come from anywhere else in space. The only external
information being brought to the system by EM waves is the momentum
and the location of the particle in relation to the world. And this
system must be comprised by a particle and its particular inwardly
flowing, concentric, spherical matter-waves. Thus, gravitation may be
viewed as drag caused by radial space/information flow. Information
which is picked and organized by concentric waves as space is
condensed into the particle/system. But the parts (not the
information) to construct and maintain the system intact, as it moves
through the medium, come from the chaotic hyperspace. CMBR is in
charge of communications. Also, CMBR is the material space from where
that new geometrical information is created and incorporated into the
system as it moves through spacetime. ZPF is the prime matter with
which volumes are created.
Gravitation is caused by radial space/information flow. As space from
hyperspace is converted to spacetime and matter by an autopoietic
process which is driven by Logic (Syntax and Topology) and the laws of
thermodynamics. Mass is caused by the continuos internal process
occurring within matter as space/information radially flows towards
the center of all matter as it precipitates from hyperspace into
spacetime. Mass and inertia are by-products of a quantum mechanical
process where a drag force is created by the continuos inwardly flow
of space/information into matter. Mass is equivalent to process. And
we only have mass in spacetime after particles are fully formed.
Mass is the result of matter's field interactions within itself and
the space in which it sits. Matter is a continuos - time dependent -
self-organizing process. Particles, as they move through the CMBR,
need to continuously re-ordinate the space that constitutes them.
Particles are in constant motion, continuously processing space/
information. Matter arises from this process, and mass increases
directly proportional to the amount of process. This is why the denser
a particle is, or the faster it moves in a given frame of reference,
the more massive it becomes.
When a particle is moving at a constant rate there is no informational
lag created by space/information flow within the particle, its spatial
energetic relationships remain constant, but as the particle is
accelerated the energetic relations between the particle and space
will be in a constant state of change causing this space/information
flow tension we call inertia.
There are matter waves and EMR between you and everything around you
flowing towards and outwards everything, including yourself. EMR
'bounces' off, picking and transmitting information regarding each
surrounding object's objective state, while matter waves flow
inwardly, towards each object, also bringing information about the
environment, as objects continuously crystallize into spacetime.
Each object, according to its own material properties, will
consequently exhibit its own inertial properties, like its own weight
The objective state of an object is instantaneously and holistically
transferred to the whole object, including its matter-wave, through
space, as a non-local, non-linear function, by a mechanism of wave
superpositions. This non-locality is possible thanks to the aether's
