    by Miles F. Osmaston   read the paper:

    Relativity Theory currently rests upon
    devastating inconsistencies: 1) embracing the function of transverse
    e.m. (TEM) waves as perfect messengers but denying the presence of an aether as
    defined by Maxwell's equations, and essential for their existence; 2) overlooking
    that force communication between two electromagnetically defined, finite-sized,
    objects is progressively velocity-limited to c (e.g. Weber
    1854; Heaviside 1889),
    so this is what we observe with electromagnetic
    accelerators, not mass-increase; 3) assuming that the finite properties
    of fundamental particles (mass and magnetism) can be physically generated
    within spatially infinitesimal singularities, despite powerful evidence that
    they are of finite size.

    Continuum Theory (CT) apparently offers
    a competent and even more fruitful replacement for Special Relativity/General
    Relativity (SR/GR) and these basic inconsistencies. CT is based on (A)
    implementing Maxwell's aether as a massless all-pervasive quasi-superfluid
    elastic continuum of (negative) electric charge and (B) seeing mass-bearing
    fundamental particles as finite-sized vortical constructs of aether in motion, (e.g.
    Maxwell, Larmor, etc),
    so their diffraction is no surprise. For
    oppositely-charged particles, one sort contains more aether and the other less,
    so particle-pair creation is ?easy'. This defines mean aether density as 1030coulombs/cm3 at
    the very least, so it provides a near-irrotational reference frame for our
    observations of ?absolute' direction with suitable devices.

    CT recognizes the aether as reference
    frame for translational behaviour of otherwise-separate bodies. This
    legitimizes the vector addition of velocities, yielding a resultant >c,thereby escaping SR's need for the Lorentz transformations. Under (B)
    the particle mass is measured by the aether-sucking capability of its vortex,
    positive-only gravitation being because the force gradient makes sucking
    themselves together the statistically prevalent expectation. This activity
    maintains a radial aether density gradient - the ?Gravity-Electric (G-E) Field'
    - around and within any gravitationally retained assemblage, so Newton's
    description of gravitation is an incomplete one. The effect on c of
    that charge density gradient yields gravitational lensing. Phenomenologically,
    aether motions inside and outside particles offer to do each of the jobs
    currently assigned to bosons.

    We show that G-E Field action on
    sufficiently charged ions and plasma is, and has been, astronomically
    ubiquitous. This strictly radial outward force has the property, shared with
    radiation pressure, of increasing the angular momentum of material driven
    outward at constant tangential velocity. Spiral galaxies no longer require cold
    dark matter (CDM) to explain this pattern. The force has comprehensive relevance
    to the high specific angular momenta achieved in solar planet formation, to
    their prograde spins and to exoplanet observations. Other probable cases
    include the solar wind, prodigious mass loss rates of high-mass stars
    (supervening radiation pressure, which would inhibit building them) and the
    acceleration of ~1019 eV cosmic rays from neutron star surfaces,
    where the G-E field may attain 1012V/m.

    The MM experiment was no basis for
    discounting the aether if it has a particle-tied nature, as in CT. But rejection
    enabled Einstein to evade that it might be in random motion, causing
    transmission effects. But a particle-tied character renders such motion
    inescapable. I show that random motion of aether charge gives rise to four
    distance-cumulative, wavelength-independent transmission effects upon
    TEM-waves, plus the generation of a low level of TEM-wave emission (the CMB).
    Redshift, one of the effects, has been observed experimentally and is
    demonstrably manifest as the cosmic redshift and as intrinsic redshifts
    generated in intragalactic plasmas and stellar atmospheres, including solar.
    This removes Big-Bang expansion and any need for CDM to control it. Dark Energy
    is not required either; the demand for it arises solely from applying the
    relativistic doppler formula to a linear redshift, which is inappropriate if
    the redshift is not a velocity. Random electromagnetic excitation at small
    scales by all-pervasive aether motion offers a potential basis for activity of
    the Weak Nuclear Force, for quantum electrodynamical behaviour and the ZPF.

    Finally, and briefly, the c-dependent
    mode of gravitational inter-communication in CT leads directly to Paul
    Gerber's (1898)
    formal resolution of perihelion advance, adopted,
    unacknowledged, by Einstein for GR. This lays a path to a Mach's Principle
    origin of inertia and suggests that inertial force is c-limited
    also, yielding a new and fruitful QSO model with lots of intrinsic redshift,
    including those of the Ly forest
    (of absorption lines). The aether motion which constitutes a mass-bearing
    particle needs space in which to exist, which limits the mass-capacity of a
    black hole. When this is exceeded, e.g. by shrinkage, mass annihilation and a
    gamma ray burst (GRB) is likely, with potential for light-element synthesis.
    The CT cosmology which emerges is of an infinite Electric Universe with
    progressive auto-creation of mass-bearing particles from the random motions of
    the aether, its original energy resource. Gravitational interactions enhance
    energy levels and the rate of auto-creation, explaining the creation of
    clustered galaxies. Such ongoing creation inverts the Big-Bang view that low
    metallicity material is very old and illuminates its prevalence in dwarf galaxies
    and spiral galaxy haloes. Deprived of such material infall, galaxies in the
    centres of clusters evolve into plasma-poor Ellipticals. Five further
    experimental tests of CT are suggested.

  • A Particle-Tied Aether: Indications of a Deeper Foundation for Physics and Relativity (2000) [Updated 3 years ago]
    by Miles F. Osmaston   read the paper:

    This contribution is primarily about the transmission of transverse electromagnetic
    (TEM) waves, our principal source of physical information. Relativity, as its name
    implies, seeks to describe relationships between entities in various circumstances but doesn't
    illuminate the nature of those entities, a gap that quantum electrodynamics and particle physics
    try to fill. A variety of well-observed phenomena, to be outlined below, appear inconsistent with
    this currently accepted framework of physics. It will be shown that these phenomena indicate the
    need for a physics framework that admits the occurrence of TEM-wave transmission effects, a
    factor explicitly denied in the conceptual basis of Special Relativity (SR). To help with these
    matters, a continuum (aether) theory (CT) of physical nature is outlined in which particles are
    special, rather (but finitely) concentrated, mainly-rotational forms of disturbance of the continuum.
    Particle random motions imply random motion of the aether, and this affects the propagation
    of TEM waves by it. Under this proposal particles are "made" of aether (originally a
    suggestion of Larmor, 1894), and the Michelson-Morley result is satisfied. The relativity
    principle, that nothing can exceed the local velocity of TEM waves, will be firmly retained but
    regarded as only strictly applicable at the smallest scale of physical nature - that of the local
    aether....
