- An “aether-body,” for instance an atom, and that which is formed of atoms—sand, flowers, the moon, you and I—is a stable
system of motion of a massive quantity of aethrons. The trajectories of the aethrons of the aether-body evolved (as you shall
learn) in such a was as to maintain its form indefinitely. This specific kind of direction-dependent motion is what makes it
distinct from the relatively free-moving, unbound, unrelated aether-medium aethrons. While the aether-medium aethrons on
average share a common position within their collision-free spheres—whether centered in isotropic motion, or off-center in
anisotropic motion—the aether-body’s aethrons, rather than share common positions within their collision-free spheres,
possess variable positions that, en masse, maintain the variable forms of it.
- When an aether-body exists in an aether-medium with a drift, the side of the aether-body transverse to that of the direction of
motion receives an unbalanced pressure that pushes it in the direction of the drift. While an unbound aethron would assume
the drift-trajectory rapidly, it takes time for the aether-body to do so. The aether-medium collides directly only with the “outer”
aethrons of the body, which then collide with aethrons of the “inner” part of the body. Over time, through this cascade of
collisions, the drift-trajectory of the aether-medium is distributed throughout the aether-body; or, in other words, the aethrons
of the latter begin to assume, however marginally, larger radii in the drift direction within their collision-free spheres. This time-
dependent rate of accumulating the drift-trajectory is called acceleration. The pressure exerted on the side of the aether-body
transverse to that of the drift is called a net force. While the relative velocity of the aether-body as a whole may be changing,
the speed of the aethrons that form it, do not. An analogy, direct of course, would be what happens when you drop a balloon
full of water into a river. The balloon, whose water is in almost isotropic random motion, does not immediately move with the
same velocity as that of the river. It takes times for the river to translate its momentum to the water-balloon.
- When an aether-body moves through an isotropic aether-medium, or against an anisotropic drift, the respective type of aether-
medium resists, through collisions, the motion of the aether-body. The aether-body requires energy, a kind of anisotropic
motion, to move in such a way, or, requires another aether-body with kinetic energy to collide with or push it. The greater the
mass, or quantity of aethrons, of a body, the more medium-aethrons it collides with as it moves; and thus, the more resistance
to its motion it encounters. However, an aether-body, even of the densest and heaviest element, acts like a mesh when it
moves through the aether, because at the same time, the aether moves through it.
|"Relativistic" Mass Increase: Resistance
of the Aether-Medium to an Aether-Body
- At high speeds, approaching that of the speed of light, an increase in the amount of force is needed to achieve the same
rate of acceleration of the aether-body. Empirically, this means the variable “mass” must somehow increase, since Newton‘s
“law” of motion states force is equal to acceleration times mass. Einstein, who rejected the aether, interpreted this to be a
relativistic increase, in empty space, of its inertial mass—that is, not as a real phenomenon, but only a change a measuring
observer, within a slower inertial frame of reference, records. Einstein is correct when he states there is an increase in the
inertial mass or resistance of the body; but errs when he postulates that the increase is a purely relativistic phenomenon,
with no material correlate. What it occurs, rather, is that when an aether-body approaches the speed of light, the aether-
medium loses its ability to dissipate the density-compression that the aether-body causes along the axis of its movement.
The aether-medium, in effect, becomes extremely dense in front of the aether-body; and this higher density resists the
aether-body‘s motion such that it requires a greater force to accelerate it at the same rate which it is was accelerating
before crossing that critical speed threshold.
- In sum, the resistance of the aether-medium is proportional to the ratio between the speed of motion and the speed of
propagation of light (Lorentz Transformation). When the relative speed of an aether-body approaches the propagation
speed of disturbances (in an atomic-medium like air, the speed of sound; in the aether-medium, the speed of light), it
produces great changes in the density of the medium in front of the body and the retarding forces become extreme.
The principle of inertia represents this relation of aether-body to aether-medium. It is not an inherent property of the
former. The aethrons of the aether-body move in such a way as to sustain its form, and thus, only slowly accumulate
the drift-trajectory of the aether-medium. The aether-medium also resists an aether-bodies motion when the latter is
not moving with or like it. In contradistinction to Einstein’s claim that all inertial frames of reference are relative to
one another, the movement of a body against the aether provides an absolute frame of reference of motion, an
aether-frame of reference.
- Einstein also claimed that a body experiences only a relativistic length contraction at high speeds. This is again,
incorrect. There is a real, not just relativistic, length distortion of an aether-body as it moves through the aether-
medium. When an external directional force is exerted upon it, such as caused by its own movement, it must
undergo some distortion of its original undisturbed shape. As the body collides with the aethrons of the aether-
medium, the front of the body experiences an equal and opposite reaction in the direction opposite that of the
direction of motion, meaning it becomes compressed. This compression is translated, however, through a series
of elastic collisions, through the entire body, such that the compression, or local length contraction in the front of
the body, causes its posterior length to expand. So as long as the aether-body does not break apart, which at
very high speeds it will, it will occupy the same volume of space as it moves. In sum, when a constant force
compels a spherical body to accelerate against the resistance of the isotropic aether, especially at relatively high
speeds, the body will become distorted, proportional to the magnitude of the force, into some kind of an ellipsoid,
with the minor axis, respective to its original center of mass, pointing in the direction of motion and the major axis
point transversally to that.
