“In order to be sure about anything in life, you need to complete your thinking.” Robert Distinti
In other words, you can’t just think one way and believe that you are right. There are many ways that something can be right. Or, as Richard Feynman once said, “There’s always another way to say the same thing, that doesn’t look at all like the way it was said before”. That said, humans almost always get things wrong before they get things right. We use to think the world was flat. We were wrong. We use to think the sun and stars rotated around a stationary earth, because this is what it looked like to an observer on earth. Again, we were wrong. We eventually learned that everything is in motion and nothing is stationary. Can we learn from our past mistakes? Let’s hope so.
In the case of the stars orbiting the earth, we should have realized that the stars farther away from the earth must be moving faster than the closer stars. At some point, the motion of the distant stars must be exceeding the speed of light, but we know this is not possible. In this manner, we should be suspicious of any and all models where the the speed of objects ever increases with distance. Hint Hint. Think Hubble’s Law.
The equivalence principle is one of those ideas that can benefit from completing our thinking. The equivalence principle states that the sensation of accelerating through space is indistinguishable from the sensation we feel when we stand on a gravitational body like the earth, and vice versa. For example, if you are standing inside a rocket ship, and the rocket is accelerating (moving up) at 9.8 meters per second per second, then you will feel exactly the same “sensation” or force that you would feel if you were standing on the surface of the earth. This is the equivalence principle that Einstein developed.
And now we are going to complete the thought. Robert Distinti refers to this as “reciprocal thinking”. If accelerating through space gives us the sensation of a gravitational field, then space, accelerating through us, should give us the same sensation. Space accelerating through us should feel like gravity. We should not be able to tell the difference between us moving through space and space moving through us. This completes the thought experiment of Albert Einstein in a very interesting manner.
So, what does it mean to have space accelerating through us? This is an image that I grabbed from Robert Distinti’s video on reciprocal thinking. The guy on the left is standing in a rocket ship and the rocket ship is accelerating through space. As you can see, the space “particles” are moving through and past the rocket (and the guy) as it is moving through space. The guy on the right is standing on the earth and, instead of the rocket moving through space, space is moving through the rocket (and the guy). In other words, space moving through us is indistinguishable from us moving through space. How can space be moving through us?
Well, Robert Distinti argues that matter is not a perpetual motion machine. Instead, matter must consume “something” in order to exist and persist. What Distinti is suggesting is that matter must consume Aether (whatever that is), in order to exist. Here, we are assuming that Aether contains some kind of “entity” that is capable of being consumed. I refer to these entities as OM-Particles. The more OM-Particles that an object consumes, per unit time or per second, the more massive the object appears. For example, the reason that the proton is 1836 times more massive than the electron, is because it consumes 1836 more OM-Particles per second, than the electron. But what is this Aether and why does matter consume it?
In a previous section On Aether I talked about the three modalities of the Aether, the Primary, the Secondary and the Tertiary. Primary Aether is primordial and therefore, comes first. Everything else emerges FROM Primary or Primordial Aether. Secondary Aether emerges from Primary via some phase transition. This leads to the spontaneous formation of vortex-antivortex pairs (OM-Particles). These pairs self-organize into a crystal-like pattern in the absence of matter (Tertiary Aether). Tertiary Aether (matter) comes next at the next phase transition seeing the creation of unpaired vortices (electrons and ions).
Primary and Secondary Aether are incommensurate principles. Primary is not Secondary and vice versa. In the beginning was Primary, and god said, “let there be secondary”. Primary Aether is the substrate of the other two. It comes first. Secondary Aether consists of vortex-antivortex pairs (which I call OM-Particles) that spontaneously form in Primary Aether at some transition condition. Tertiary Aether consists of unpaired vortices (otherwise known as matter) that also appear in Primary Aether at some other Aether transition condition. The short story is, there are two Aether transitions. The first transition creates Secondary Aether (vortex-pairs, neutrinos?). The second transition creates Tertiary Aether (matter). There is only one Aether. Everything else is phase transitions within the Universal Aether.
So, back to the question, “what is being consumed by matter?”. The Vortex-antivortex pairs (OM-Particles) of Secondary Aether are being consumed by matter. Why? To conserve angular momentum. Vortex-antivortex pairs store angular momentum. Conservation of angular momentum is the only conservation law required by this cosmology. All other conservation laws stem from conservation of angular momentum since all observable phenomenon in the universe is a result of vortex flow a.k.a. turbulence.
In order for Tertiary Aether (matter) to persist, it must consume Secondary Medium. In order for Secondary Aether to persist, it must “share” Primary Aether. Primary Aether must flow in order for the Secondary vortex pairs to persist. Secondary Aether feeds Primary Aether to matter. Secondary must “share”. When Matter comes into the field, Secondary must feed it. When matter is not in the field, Secondary must share with Secondary, which is why Secondary comes in pairs. In order to persist, Secondary must continuously flow Primary Aether. The best way to do this is to share with another vortex. Vortex pairs share Primary by sending it back and forth. This flow both brings them together and keeps the apart. In order to share, they must be very close to each other but in order to share, they must also be some distance apart. There will be an optimal distance that will allow for the most efficient sharing of Primary Aether.
In the atom, electrons transport Primary Aether to the nucleus via the positron. Protons consume positrons leaving the electron in the shell. Electrons spin up more positrons to feed to the proton while in the electron shells. Electrons spin up positrons in the opposite direction and then feeds the to the protons in counter-space (the nucleus). This is how Primary Aether gets recycled.
Protons can only consume positrons. If it consumed electrons, it would spin down (it would die). Heavier atoms require more positrons and so more electrons must appear in the shell. Really heavy atoms are unstable because the electrons cannot supply enough Primary Aether to satisfy the nucleus. Heavy atoms are Primary Aether starved because Secondary Aether is so dense in that region. These atoms decay into Primary Aether rich configurations.
When Secondary Aether is consumed by the atom, Primary Aether is released. For that reason, the path to consumption must be spiral. By analogy, when water flows down the drain, it never goes straight in but instead, it always spirals in. Why? When water is going down the drain, it must create a path for the air to get out. If air can’t get out, then water can’t get in. The spiral path is the most efficient path for water to flow into the drain so that the air can get out. As water is flowing down the drain, air is flowing up. In a similar manner, as Secondary Aether is flowing into the nucleus of the atom, Primary Aether is flowing out. The medium coming out of the drain must be less dense (have less inertia) than the medium going into the drain, otherwise, flow cannot happen. Therefore, we can deduce that Primary Aether is less dense than Secondary Aether.
The path that Secondary Aether takes in consumption is the same hypertrhchoid path that we see in the ferrocell.
Question and Answer:
Question: “In a vortex-antivortex pair, what specifically is the antivortex part? Is it just a still region next to the vortex?”
The idea is that one motion (in the direction of the arrow) creates two vortices that are rotating in opposite directions. The two vortex structures are “coupled” in that one does not appear without the other. Now, apply this to higher dimensions.
Question: “You say that in the absence of tertiary, primary and secondary are in equilibrium which I would assume means that neither in that state is being consumed. But introduction of tertiary causes it to consume secondary. Could you please expand on what the structure of tertiary is and how it consumes secondary, that is, what’s the mechanism?”
The idea of Aether consumption comes from Robert Distinti and I am merely entertaining the idea. I can only guess what he thinks. This is just a guess.
