Ontology defines as, “the branch of metaphysics that deals with the nature of being.” Physics defines as, “The science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two23.” Physics is the study of mechanics and until now provided little insight into structure; however, the Aether Physics Model reveals physical structure and that its existence has a non-material cause. The APM reveals a true ontology based upon physical data.
Scientists claim that their physics models predict the data, a recurrent theme throughout the Standard Model and Special Relativity Theory. However, the data is the result of the truth of existence, not of the creation of experiments and theory. The experiments measure existence; they do not construct it. Theories and models merely explain the data. If the theory does not appeal to common sense, then what prevents us from replacing it with a better theory that does? The Aether Physics Model is that better theory.
Scientists claim the Standard Model is convincing despite the fact that the model itself defies common sense when explaining quantum structure. There is no attempt to correct the logic of Standard Model structural theories, as the underlying physics assumptions will not allow it. Instead of finding better explanations for quantum structure, we hear the only important factor is a useable result with regard to quantum mechanics.
The Standard Model of physics lists the elementary particles as quarks, leptons, and force carrier particles. Quarks seem to appear to scientists when two stable protons or neutrons slam together. The protons and neutrons break apart with the same behavior each time, and the resulting pattern of debris results in what physicists call quarks. The quarks have a life span of about 10-12 second and an isolated quark has never been found. Protons have a “half life” of 1032 years or more. Is it likely that such extremely short-lived quarks produce extremely long-lived protons?
If neutrons are made of quarks, then what about observations of neutrons decaying into protons and electrons and protons and electrons binding to produce neutrons? Likewise, there are the force carrier “particles.” Physicists speak of gluons as though they were real particles, but what evidence is there for a gluon particle? Does it really make sense for force to manifest as a particle?
Quantum Theory (Quantum Mechanics) examines the structure and behavior of atoms and molecules. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that subatomic particles only exist as probability functions. Wave-particle duality theory (complementarity principle) states that subatomic particles can behave like both particles and waves. Einstein’s has been interpreted as stating the dimension of mass and the unit of energy are equivalent.
Of course, in recognition of the irrational nature of many Standard Model principles, any respectable physicist will tell you not to take Standard Model physics concepts literally with regard to quantum structure. We hear that physics models are merely abstract concepts of a poorly understood topic.
Modern physics ignores any hint of a non-material, creating force for the Universe; it too closely resembles Deity as described in many world religions. Yet modern physics invents hypothetical particles with color, flavor, up down characteristics, and gluons, that may or may not exist due to probabilities. It is as though the Standard Model exists to deny the Universe has a Creator, only to spread belief in its own myths.
As we entered the 21st century, our measurement equipment and the materials we worked with had reached a very high level of sophistication. We now know the constants of the subatomic realm to a much greater degree of accuracy than did the brilliant minds of the 19th and 20th centuries. Beginning with a fresh look at the precise values and dimensions of the quantum realm, the Aether Physics Model gives the world a real quantum structural physics, and thankfully, a real physics based on a real non-material existence, which some might call God.
It is not enough to point to the weaknesses and inconsistencies of an established or a proposed theory. A convincing argument requires the enumeration not only of the questioned theory’s weaknesses but also a better theory to take its place.
And therein rests the general purpose of this book. Presented are the weaknesses and inconsistencies of the Standard Model with regard to quantum structures as well as a better theory to take its place. This better theory, however, is not necessarily new. For thousands of years prior to Albert Einstein, it was widely accepted that the physical Universe constructs from the existence of Aether in one manifestation or another.
Albert Einstein did not disprove, nor did he attempt to disprove, the existence of the Aether. In fact, on May 5, 1920 at the University of Leyden, Einstein gave a lecture in which he defended the existence of Aether.
What Albert Einstein set out to do in his earlier work was to explain the observed physical phenomena without invoking the Aether. Einstein found limited success, but he was not able to develop a Unified Force Theory or Grand Unified Theory based on his Relativity theories. This was because the forces are inherent to the structure of existence, whereas the Relativity theories could only explain the mechanics.
Einstein was successful enough to advance science to its present condition, but with today’s developments in nanotechnology and interplanetary and interstellar explorations, we are in desperate need of a more accurate description of quantum structure. As it turns out, this more accurate theory of quantum structure once again invokes the existence of the Aether.
The concept of the Aether was dominant in the physics theories from ancient Greece and India until the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The concept of the Aether took many different forms. Frustrated because no convincing evidence of the existence of Aether was emerging, Albert Einstein developed a new approach based on his now famous expression. Mr. Einstein did not totally give up on the Aether, but he did usher in a new physics that excluded the Aether from science.
Some early theories of the Aether presupposed a stationary particulate medium. Light seemed to travel as a wave in the Aether medium much as water ripples travel on the surface of water. When Michelson and Morley conducted an experiment to identify the particulate medium as absolute space-time, resulting in Aether drifting through the Earth as the Earth moved through space, they found no overwhelming evidence for the magnitude of Aether drift they expected. However, they did measure an Aether drift. Dayton Miller later conducted extensive tests that verified an Aether drift relative to the Earth at about ten kilometers per second. The results indicated that if Aether exists, it must drag relative to the Earth, which Augustin Fresnel also posited65. Since the prevailing understanding did not allow Aether to drag along with the Earth, many touted this as evidence against the existence of the Aether. This prejudice toward a dragging Aether also caused many to proclaim the erroneous assumption that the Michelson-Morley experiments showed absolutely no Aether drift.
With the Aether Physics Model, the existence of Aether is an essential aspect for explaining the phenomena within the Universe. Now that we have exact measurements of certain constants, we can deduce that the Aether is not in the form of a physically detectable particle, but in the form of a non-material Aether unit of 2-spin rotating magnetic field. A quantum Aether unit has the precise value equal to Coulomb’s constant times .
The rotating magnetic field concept of the Aether presented in this book is not much different from John Bernoulli’s “whirlpool Aether” concept:
The Aether has a non-material nature revealed through Coulomb’s constant, the gravitational constant, the speed of light, the permeability constant, and the permittivity constant. The newly defined and important conductance constant of the Aether relates directly to the electromagnetism of onta, as well as to consciousness.
As for evidence proving the existence of the Aether, it does exist. Anybody can do these two simple experiments to see visual proof of the Aether. The first experiment requires a magnet and cathode ray tube. The cathode ray tube could be your computer monitor, TV, or oscilloscope screen. Just make sure your cathode ray tube has a degaussing feature before doing this experiment, or you may permanently disfigure your viewing screen.
Place the magnet against the cathode ray tube with the north or south pole facing the screen. You will notice a pattern seemingly caused by the magnetic flux of the magnet as it reorganizes the electron beams. Once the magnet is flush against the screen, twist it back and forth. You will notice that the pattern on the screen does not change. Had the magnet been the source of the magnetic flux, the pattern would have changed since the magnetic flux would link to the molecules and atoms of the magnet. However, the magnetic flux arises from the Aether and thus exists relative to the Aether. Twisting the magnet will not affect the magnetic flux of the Aether. This experiment will work regardless of the shape of the magnet.
The same experiment works with ferrofluid. Ferrofluid is a liquid substance that reacts to a magnetic field. Position a magnet below a dish of ferrofluid and twist the magnet back and forth, as in the above experiment. The magnetic flux will not move as observed by the ferrofluid not moving. Once again, the magnetic flux associated with the magnet is coming from the Aether and not from the magnet.
In the Michelson-Morley experiments, the Aether follows along with the matter of the Earth and the atmosphere. The Aether is not a wind that blows freely through matter, except as matter becomes less dense. This is contrary to the expectations of scientists in the 1800s. In addition, Aether gives form to matter, but matter also occupies and manipulates Aether. The situation is a bit more complicated than an assumed fixed Aether with an independently existing matter.
“Frame dragging” is another euphemism of the Standard Model intended to acknowledge the properties of Aether, but without calling it Aether. The frame dragging of General Relativity theory is tantamount to the notion of Aether moving with matter.
In the previous section, we provided an experiment for proving the existence of the Aether using a permanent magnet and a CRT. Although cathode ray tubes did not exist in the late 1800s, Albert Einstein wrote a paper at the age of 16, which essentially made the same observations about magnetic fields and Aether. In The Golden Age of Theoretical Physics, Jagdish Mehra translates Albert Einstein’s first paper from German. We provide the full text of the paper as it supports and relates to the Aether Physics Model.
Three axes of length in three-dimensional coordinate systems generally represent the concept of space. This implies that space is equal to volume. And for general purposes, if we talk about a room with space, we are indeed only talking about volume.
In the Aether Physics Model, space-time is more than just the three dimensions of length and one dimension of time. Space is united with time in such a way that the two are inseparable, producing a single unit called double cardioid (dcrd). However, the coordinate systems still in use today only include dimensions of length. We need a coordinate system that includes both space and time. Further, whereas perception of space-time through our bodies’ senses gives the appearance of just one dimension of linear time, linear time is an illusion. In reality, the time dimensions of Aether are actually frequency dimensions, and there are two of them. Together these two dimensions of frequency produce a spherical unit of resonance. While in reality the quantum Universe has the qualities of space-resonance, we perceive the physical, macro Universe with the qualities of space-time.
Another intriguing notion of Aether is that space and resonance integrate through a shared geometry. In other words, space and resonance are the same entity but viewed from two perspectives, which are orthogonal to each other.
Geometric Structure of Aether
Non-material Aether having geometry might seem a bit strange. However, this is exactly what empirical data suggests. In fact, after one has reviewed the Aether Physics Model in totality, it is not possible to think of the Aether without geometry.
The geometrical constant of the Aether induces to be , translating to a geometrical shape of a tubular loxodrome distributed over two adjacent spheres. Further induced is that the spheres have electrostatic polarity, the whole structure has magnetic polarity, and the spin directions have gravitational polarity.
One fourth of the total loxodrome surrounding both spheres is a tube with a surface constant of , the toroid constant. Because toroids have two radii, the small radius and large radius, they can have varying radii lengths but still have the same surface area. The toroids in the above left image have different radii, but identical surface areas. This is why all onta share the same quantum surface area as the Compton wavelength squared. It is because all onta have the same surface area that we can graphically represent them as twin tubular loxodromes (referred to simply as “loxodromes”) while making use of the quantum distance squared as their surface area.
The perfectly symmetrical representation only applies to the surface areas and to the electrostatic charges. The mass, distributed frequency, and strong charge dimensions are not symmetrical in a given Aether unit. The unequal distributions of quantum distributed frequency affect the general form of the physical Universe and give us shapes like flowers, butterflies, tree branching, leaf patterns, snail shells, skeletal structures, body organ composition, and every other pattern that arises from growth processes. The unequal mass division reflects in the observed difference between electron and proton masses and their proportional strong charges.
The toroid constant represents the surface geometry of ½-spin onta. The electron and proton are examples of ½-spin onta. Half of the double loxodrome has the geometrical constant of , and is either the loxodrome around a single sphere or half a loxodrome around two spheres. A full loxodrome represents 1-spin, such as the photon possesses. The full loxodrome around both spheres represents 2-spin, such as the Aether unit and supposed “graviton” possess.
is the square of , which is the spherical constant. The 4π spherical constant is also related to the (speed of light squared) constant and describes the geometrical qualities (page 156). The mathematical function of the loxodrome path over the spheres is:
All physical existence ultimately derives its geometry from the Aether. The geometry, as shown in the images above, represents the available spin positions for the angular momentum to reside in the Aether unit. The Aether images do not represent some kind of a particle or otherwise solid entity. The color-coding is intended to show that each spin position is a unique “pathway"; the blue path is for the electron, gold is for the positron, aqua is for the anti-proton, and red is for the proton.
It is important to remember that the tubular loxodromes shown in the drawings are accurate only in relation to the surface constant. The surface area of each half-spin loxodrome is always equal to the Compton wavelength squared. However, the small and large electron and proton radii vary in length, and therefore so do the sphere radii. The Aether, being a 2-spin rotating magnetic field, is flexible in this regard and allows for the centrifugal expansion as envisioned by Bernoulli.
The Aether is thus a “field” in which subatomic particles can exist. It is because of this geometry of Aether that it is possible to model the structures of electrons, photons, protons, and neutrons and their interactions.
Further, the Aether includes the dimensions of mass and charge. An enormous force (Gforce) emanating from a non-material Source acts upon the strong charge dimensions giving rise to the Aether.
The Physical Universe
The preceding section is about the non-material Aether. To present the physical Universe in coherent terms, we must understand the non-material “field,” or environment, in which physical matter exists. Once we have knowledge of the non-material Aether structure, we can easily produce a mathematically correct and discrete view of the physical world. The reader should understand that the phrase “mathematically correct” in the Aether Physics Model means that not only the values and operators are correct but also the dimensions. In other words, all of the mathematics used in this book reflects real world structures.
At the core of the Aether Physics Model is a mathematically correct Unified Force Theory, the first such theory to exist in modern science. The Unified Force Theory develops from the concept of distributed charge and fine structures of the onta (fine structures are proportions of spherical elementary charge to equivalent spherical strong charge). The strong force is mathematically (since 1950) and experimentally (since 1996) proven to have a charge that complements, but is different from, elementary charge. But, the theory and the experiments that proved the existence of electron strong force were not seen for what they were because of the investment in the pi meson (pion)150 hypothesis of a strong force carrier. The Casimir equation is the proof that the electron has a strong charge and that it obeys a strong force law.
When examining the Newton gravitational law, Coulomb electrostatic law, and the strong force law, what seemed to be four distinct forces demonstrate to be three different manifestations of the Gforce with three different dimensions. The Gforce is comparable to the sun and the three aspects of onta (electrostatic charge, electromagnetic charge, and mass) are comparable to three different colors of glass. We see three different forces in the physical world, but they are all manifestations of one Gforce, as three different colors of light emanate through three different colored panes of glass, even though they are manifestations of one light source. This is an example of how force evolves into complexity similar to the way subatomic particles bind to become atoms. The so-called “weak force” is really a proportion of electrostatic charge to electromagnetic charge.
Primary angular momentum explains the structure behind all matter and light interactions, thereby eliminating the mysterious wave-particle duality theory. Primary angular momentum is the primary form of material existence and explains the photoelectric effect, pair production, and Compton Effect in units that directly relate to the electron and photon.
We hypothesize new equations that predict the nuclear binding forces and electron binding energies of all isotopes (page 234). In addition, the preliminary steps toward the discovery of an atomic spectral equation, which predicts the spectra of all isotopes and their ions, becomes apparent. The electron and nuclear binding energy equations and atomic spectra equations are destined to be the new “holy grail” of physics and we have already had significant success with the electron binding energy equation. From these three equations, we will likely develop molecular equations, which can predict the properties of any substance before it is known to exist.
Unified Force Theory
The Unified Force Theory is the foundation upon which the Aether Physics Model rests. The UFT will appear in detail later; however, an introduction to the core concepts follows here.
The Standard Model of physics recognizes only one type of charge, the elementary charge, which has a single dimension of charge. The torsion balance devised by Charles Coulomb is an electrostatic apparatus, which demonstrates elementary charge. Therefore, it is appropriate to identify elementary charge as the carrier of the “electrostatic force,” since that is what the torsion balance measures in this instance.
In the Aether Physics Model, we notate all charge as distributed, just as it appears in nature. Charge is not a point, and we ignore its structural characteristics that result from treating it as a point. Charge always appears over the surface of an object, even if the object is a single electron. Therefore, the correct dimensions of charge are charge squared.
Instead of presenting elementary charge as e, elementary charge should present as e2.
According to the Standard Model, gluons29 carry the strong force in quarks, and pions150 carry the strong force in nuclei. In the Aether Physics Model, the strong force carries by strong charge. Strong charge is related to elementary charge, but it has a different geometry, spin and magnitude. Strong charge notates as for the electron, for the proton, and for the neutron. But as in the case of elementary charge, strong charge is always distributed. So, for example, electron strong charge would notate as .
The weak interaction is the proportion of the elementary charge to the strong charge. The weak interaction is equal to 8p times the fine structure of the onn. The relationship of the elementary charge, strong charge, and weak interaction for each onn appears as follows where,, and are the fine structures of the electron, proton, and neutron, respectively:
Later we will examine the relative strengths of the forces between the electrostatic charges, strong charges, weak interactions, and masses in order to see how close the calculated forces agree with empirical measurements (page 210).
Primary Angular Momentum
The problem with the wave-particle duality theory is that the dimensions of onta are neither dimension of waves (frequency), nor of solid matter. (The Standard Model does not quantitatively define matter.) Since the dimensions of onta are not the dimensions of matter or of waves, the Aether Physics Model does not equate electrons, protons, and neutrons with either solid matter or with waves.
In a 1996 journal article, Phil Berardelli reports:
In the Aether Physics Model, these multi-layered clouds are the angular momentum of individual onta. And since these onta are the smallest stable form of material existence, it is proper to view the onta as primary angular momentum.
The angular momentum of a two-body system, such as a satellite in orbit around a planet, involves two distinct bodies. Free electrons, protons, and neutrons are single body systems, and yet they have angular momentum. Therefore, consistent with the earlier discussion concerning the relationships among different orders of existence, we can propose that primary angular momentum has a different structure than two-body angular momentum.
When we take the literal dimensions of primary angular momentum we find that there is a mass dimension, there are two length dimensions, and there is a frequency dimension. Expressed in terms of quantum measurements, angular momentum is:
One way to visualize this is to see a line of mass moving perpendicular at a velocity. Take a straight object, like a pencil, and hold it in front of you. The pencil represents a mass times length. In one quick motion, now move the pencil at a velocity perpendicular to its length. The blurred image you see graphically represents the nature of primary angular momentum.
Of course, an electron is not literally a straight line moving sideways. It is necessary to take into account the curvature of the Aether double loxodrome structure. Since the onn mass has to fit in the small circumference of the loxodrome “tube,” the line of mass would appear as a circle. Ligamen circulatus (LC) names this line of mass. The perpendicular path of the line of mass as it moves sideways also traces out a circular path. The resulting geometry is toroidal. The toroid, however, traces on a sphere and from pole to pole, when viewed in space-resonance coordinates. When viewed in space-time coordinates as with human perception, the shape is actually that of a cardioid, as in the image to the left.
The Aether imparts, and thus accounts for, the spin in the loxodrome structure of the onn. We will view the equations that support the toroid-like geometry of primary angular momentum and its relationship to spin later (page 202).
For now, let us explore the general characteristics of primary angular momentum. Since primary angular momentum is a circumferential line (ligamen circulatus) moving sideways, the onta have only two dimensions of length. The curvature of Aether acts as a mold and imparts geometry to the onta. The ligamen circulatus moves in time, which means that the onn exists as a function of time between one moment and the next moment. Time is consequently a component of onta. In fact, we could not perceive time and space if our bodies and senses were not composed of primary angular momentum. Primary angular momentum is the first-cause of physical perception, intimately related to the distributed frequency (or resonance) of the Aether.
Because the ligamen circulatus moves perpendicular to its circumference in order to scan an area (strong charge), the onta are not solid. They more closely resemble a cloud, as does the scanned area of a pencil moving back and forth in our vision. It is the scanning of primary angular momentum, which gives onta the appearances of a wave and particle.
So primary angular momentum explains why onta can appear as particles when we look at their strong charge, and can appear as waves when we look at the moving LC. Yet these are only appearances. The particulate and wave natures of primary angular momentum are illusions having meaning only from our macro perspective. The reality of the onn structure is primary angular momentum and nothing else.
Interestingly, photons can also appear as primary angular momentum, except that they are also exploding outward at the speed of light. A detailed exploration of the photon follows later (page 192).
Zero Point Energy
Finally, we briefly explore the purpose for which the Aether Physics Model was initially developed. We learn how photons constantly propagate from the dark matter that exists throughout the Universe, contributing to the visible Universe’s accelerating physical expansion; and then we learn how human beings can tap this natural process in order to realize an unlimited supply of fuelless energy (although this is not recommended, as “free energy” also qualifies as a “pollutant”).
The equation for zero point energy also provides us with a mechanism and a clue as to how a “Big Bang” type of event is constantly occurring. As such, the observation of neutrinos can reveal a coherent explanation of the expansion and contraction of the physical Universe. It is interesting to note that out of whatever process generates physical existence, only two forms of stable matter emerge, the electron and proton (aside from anti-matter). If the zero point energy equation (also a form of the strong force law) is correct, then the ZPE equation should be a part of the so-called Big Bang explanation.
However, not too much attention will apply to ZPE in this book. The focus of this book is the foundational theory of quantum structure.

 COMPLEMENTARITY PRINCIPLE - physical principle enunciated by Niels Bohr in 1928 stating that certain physical concepts are complementary. If two concepts are complementary, an experiment that clearly illustrates one concept will obscure the other complementary one. For example, an experiment that illustrates the particle properties of light will not show any of the wave properties of light. This principle also implies that only certain kinds of information can be gained in a particular experiment. Some other information that is equally important cannot be measured simultaneously and is lost. "Complementarity Principle," The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed.

 “However, all attempts to demonstrate its [Aether’s] existence, most notably the Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887, produced negative results and stimulated a vigorous debate among physicists that was not ended until the special theory of relativity, proposed by Albert Einstein in 1905, became accepted.

For all of Miller’s extensive experience, it seems highly suspect that Miller did not notice what should have been an obvious flaw in the results, were it true.

 Dr. Lester Hulett raises the point that the loxodromes of the Aether unit are not exactly the same as loxodromes on a Mercator map. He suggests they be called something else to clarify the subtle differences in geometry.
 Wolfgang Pauli was possibly the most influential physicist in the theory of spin. Spin was first discovered in the context of the emission spectrum of alkali metals. In 1924 Pauli introduced what he called a "two-valued quantum degree of freedom" associated with the electron in the outermost shell. This allowed him to formulate the Pauli exclusion principle, stating that no two electrons can share the same quantum numbers. Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spin_(physics)#History
