Yes Mr. Ewan Sutherland Fallon

Gravity does not seem to be a characteristic of matter; matter seems to be a characteristic of “gravity”.

In my essay, formula (17) can be found confirmation of your attitude.

Although, you uncritically accept erroneous theories of others (Big Bang). Observations related to your profession have been much more acceptable. This is enough to think that your work is good.

Best regards,

Branko Zivlak

Ewan,

I feel you, as the current expression goes. I agree that a field theory solves the matter problem, though the spacetime field eliminates the need of an ether. I understand the desire to have two interactive fields, though spacetime is sufficient as my essay argues.

Hope to discuss more. When my voting code is assigned, I also hope to help counteract the effect of moronic "peers".

Thomas, thanks for your interest. It's my understanding that space/time came about when Michelson/Morley were unable to find an ether during their iconic experiment. The returning halves of the split beam projected at right angle to each other reflected back at the identical time. However it was assumed that the experiment was carried out in an open system, and that not only was there no ether, but that evidently time itself had to vary for the beam segments to arrive back simultaneously. In the Dynamic Ether conjecture the Earth is moving in a closed system of converging energy flows from all points of the compass, Thusly the projected 1/2 beams no matter in which direction projected, would always return simultaneously. Although any such experiment could not prove or disprove an ether, it does show that time taken would always be the same. In other words, time is a constant measure of events, - should the conjecture prove to be true. I realize the effect of this on modern Einstein-in theory, but that is where the logic would take us in this particular case.

Dear Ewan Sutherland Fallon,

Please excuse me for I have no intention of disparaging in any way any part of your essay.

I merely wish to point out that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate.

Only nature could produce a reality so simple, a single cell amoeba could deal with it.

The real Universe must consist only of one unified visible infinite physical surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

A more detailed explanation of natural reality can be found in my essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY. I do hope that you will read my essay and perhaps comment on its merit.

Joe Fisher, Realist

Nice essay Fallon,

Your ideas and thinking are excellent. There are many Universe models which require Aether in some form. But this Aether was not found till now. What is your opinion…?

For your information Dynamic Universe model does not require Aether, it is totally based on experimental results. Here in Dynamic Universe Model Space is Space and time is time in cosmology...

The dynamic ether concept well supports the Paul Dirac theories of particles appearing and disappearing momentarily. In this case the energy disturbance failed to achieve a balanced form, and reverted to its potential form.

The conjectured energy stream into a star, could logically displace an otherwise passing beam of light from a hidden body in that it became visible. It has to be noted that this would replace the observable effect attributed to Einstein's body-curving space.

Ocean tides may be formed as the passing Moon/Earth energy shadow causes a swelling of the thinnest part of the Earth shell (deep ocean bottom)towards the shadow. The moving resultant bulge of water dissipates land wise, in the form of tides. As the shadow passes the bulge becomes a depression withdrawing water from the shores. The foregoing provides a driving force instead of a "pull" of gravity to generate tides.

Dear Ewan Sutherland Fallon,

I agree with you,

I think that the aether came from ancient Creek was proposed by the greatest philosophers. We should remember they established the foundation of now day's science. I cannot think that the greatest philosophers said completely wrong.

I think that at the foundation of the natural structure (Foundations of Hierarchy), there might not be any energy dissipation, while being perfect.

Your essay is something very interesting for me.

Because your idea is somewhat similar with my idea in my essay in the Essay contest.

I invite you to read my essay “A SPACE-TIME AS A PERFECT FLUID SINK FLOW” at the site of essay contest of FQXi, when you have a free time.

at http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2826

If you send an email to me, we would have a discuss more about the aether dynamics.
