A Theoretical Model of the Structure of Space Based on the Speed of Light
Year: 2010 Pages: 5
Present mainstream physics has abandoned the concept of a carrier of light waves. This paper's intent is to restore the concept of a carrier by utilizing light speed as the foundation for defining the structure of such a carrier, which was commonly referred to in the 19th century as aether. By using established empirical and experimental data, it is possible to put forward an extremely powerful 3-D structure over which angular impulses (aka light, aka electromagnetism) can move in a wave distribution at a speed of ~300000 kilometers per second ( c ). Once the structure has been defined, proper understanding of the aether's dynamics makes it possible to move beyond the speed of light alone and encompass concepts of gravity, gravitational lensing, and origination of mass. Based on the structure of the medium as presented here, the model strongly supports a return to a mechanics-based physics in rejecting wave-particle duality while absorbing quantum theory.
