Some volume ratios, in simple geometric patterns, are nearly equal to some important particle mass ratios in physics -- such as the proton to electron ratio. Those correlations were detailed by me in a widely read journal in 1995. However, I did not then suggest why such correlations arise. Unless the correlations are merely coincidental, an explanation is desirable; and now I attempt it! It involves these notions: Low density aether votices or spheres in space having a Planck\'s quantum of angular momentum; maximum nuclear densities (as in Bohr\'s liquid-drop model); some aether-related speed-of-light limitations imposed on nuclear densities ; and those small and large aether balls in space containing small and large energies, respectively. Those ethereal spheres are determined by what fits into neat, close-packed sphere patterns in space, and they share some energies and angular momentum with gross particles.
