The Quantitative Analogies and the Ether
The quantitative analogies point to an ether with many of the properties of a perfect fluid: that is, incompressible, frictionless, convective, gyrostatic; but also infinitely polarizable. Mass, considered not to vary with velocity, is apparently the bridge between the ether world. and the electrical world which we inhabit. Does this mean that the ether 150 composed of minute charged particles, or of neutral couplets, mirroring our atoms, which are then entrainable by matter, but do not rotate with it?
