Despite the strong conservative policy and costly resistance of the academic world to preserve life and activity of current ?standard? theories of physics, a massive number of clues indicate that our universe consists substantially of an undetectable fundamental essence, which is commonly referred to as ?ether?. The need for the ?ether? was finally and openly admitted even by Einstein; whereas quantum physics lingers still on fuzzy concepts like ?zero energy level? or similar ones, with no capacity of re-founding physics from bottom down.
This paper draws materials also from a book of mine, to try suggestions for quite a different approach to physics. The space of our universe is here addressed as it were a finite physical ? though undetectable ? fluid continuum, here dubbed ?plenum?, which is surrounded (and partly permeated) by an infinite space of ?true vacuum?. In the true vacuum no physical event occurs. All material elements and detectable phenomena are effects of kinematical states of the ?plenum?. Allowing for such a basic assumption, the principal issue addressed here regards gravity and gravitation. Instead of ?mutual attraction between masses?, gravitation is here viewed and described as one particular effect associated with vortexes of plenum. Also the formation of mass and the aggregation of matter components is viewed as states of plenum around nuclei of true vacuum, which ?gets into? the physical space through tears and openings caused by motions and/or turbulence of the plenum. The analysis leads to the formulation of tentative gravity and gravitational equations, whose complete solution requires further research.
