Telling a Fish About Water
Our present way of viewing the world does not provide a satisfying explanation for the process that brings about the effects of gravitation. This problem is due to the fact that we have totally misconstrued what we see before us. Therefore we must develop a radically different way of seeing the world. One approach is to stipulate that what we call mass is, in reality, an ether sink. We take as a given that the entire universe is a sea of ether. At points called mass the ether is rushing in and disappearing. Pursuing this approach provides a new way of understanding gravitation; gives a new insight into why gravitation and acceleration are identical; and suggests an alternative explanation for the redshift.
