The ether of the ancients is our quantum world populated with a multitude of quantum entities known and unknown. Ether is not a simple substance but is composed of the various quantum entities now beginning to be known to orthodoxy. Therefore there are diverse types of ether having a plethora of characteristics. The following uses and definitions of the terms "aether" and "ether" will show many different people describing many different kinds of ether. The notion the "ether does not exist" because it was not measurable some decades ago is nonsense. Electricity was not measurable some time ago. Radio waves were not measurable some time ago. Non-measurability by fumbling science does not preclude the existence of that sought.

Aether "Next come Aether and Chaos, Spirit-Matter, the Bound and Infinity of Plato (Proc., Tim., ii. 117), the Purusha-Prakriti of the Sânkhya. Orpheus calls this Aether the Mighty Whirlpool (Simplicius, Ausc., iv.123); called Magna Vorago by Syrianus (Metaph., ii.33a). And Proclus (Tim., ii.117), speaking of Chaos, says: 'The last Infinity, by which also Matter is circumscribed--is the Container, the field and plane of ideas. About her is "neither limit, nor foundation, nor seat, but excessive darkness".' This is the Műlaprakriti or Root-Matter of the Vedântins, and Aether is the so-called first Logos, Aether-Chaos being the second. 'And dusky Night comprehended and hid all below the Ether; [Orpheus thus] signifying that Night came first.' (Malela, iv.31; Cedrenus, i.57, 84.) Then comes the Dawn of the First Creation. In the Unaging Time, Chaos, impregnated by the whirling of Aether, formed itself into THE COSMIC EGG Apion (Clement, Homil., VI.iv.671) writes that: 'Orpheus likened Chaos to an egg, in which the primal "elements" were all mingled together. . . . This egg was generated from the infinitude of primal matter as follows. [The first two principles were] primal matter innate with life, and a certain vortex in perpetual flux and unordered motion – from these there arose an orderly flux and interblending of essences, and thus from each, that which was most suitable to the production of life flowed to the centre of the universe, while the surrounding spirit was drawn within, as a bubble in water. Thus a spherical receptacle was formed. Then, impregnated in itself by the divine spirit which seized upon it, it revolved itself into manifestation--with the appearance of the periphery of an egg.' [Meade, G.R.S., AETHER, CHAOS AND NIGHT]
Aether is not the same as ether. See Chart of Matter and Energy for perspective.

"Everything that has been done in physics since the work of Dr. Young on light and the discovery of M. rsted is preparation for a new era ... Explanations deduced from the effects produced by the motion of imponderable fluids will gradually replace those now accepted ... I believe that we must look to the motions of fluids distributed in space for the explanation of general effects." Ampere


"the infinite divine Spirit of HOLY GHOST, and the UNIVERSAL THERS or elemental Fire ... Because as the mechanic philosophers make the Aether the cause of attraction, muscular motion and other extraordinary phenomena of matter: So is the HOLY GHOST the cause of all spiritual conduct, which is consonant to the divine Law." Barton


"Sir Isaac Newton is of the opinion that there is in nature a certain fluid of exceeding elasticity and density, that pervades all nature, the different modifications of which produce the phenomena of Electricity, magnetism and Gravity and the cohesion of the smaller parts of bodies to each other... I am therefore of the opinion that this is the inflammable principle." Black

"Taking the law of assimilation as the cosmical law, together with self-manifesting power as the characteristic of being, we reach a primary classification of created objects, which corresponds with that which is known as mind and matter-or rather let us say mind and that which is not mind; for there is ground for the apprehension that mind and matter do not include all that exists; and that, along with matter, ether ought to be considered as something intimately related to matter indeed, but yet not just matter. When the elements of the ethereal medium are regarded as truly and simply material however small and light they may be, the elasticity and pressure which must be assigned to that medium in order to admit of the velocity of light, are altogether out of the harmony of things; and wholly incredible, especially when confronted with the phenomena and the theory of astronomy. Thus, to justify the velocity of light on the same principles as those of sound, in various material media, the ethereal pressure must be 122,400,000,000 times greater than that of the atmosphere - which is incredible, says Macvicar." Bloomfield-Moore


Edgar Cayce
Edgar Cayce

Q.: Ether may be defined as the combination of a higher plane, leading us to metaphysics, to where every consideration of the atom finally leads one.

A.: This is correct - for, same as the statement of positive and negative forces as relating to gravitation that act upon the individuals DEVELOPMENT, or individuals application as is occupied from within itself. Hence, as is seen, there are (This may be an illustration for this same condition) certain CHARACTERS of disease that accentuates mental forces, or the metaphysical activity of a body. There are others that so DULL the senses as that they become one-sided, or only passive, not positive; yet a NORMAL, perfectly well and normal mind as of being so active as to be considered by others in its activity as of being unbalanced, but only is it considered PECULIAR." Cayce (195-70)

"Etheronic energy is mental control." Cayce (443-5)   

"Etheronic energy is the emanation from the spirit force through the active force of that which makes for matter being held in its positive position, or in its space of activity. Hence thought as a body, whether of animal or plant, is shown as of plant receiving in its freshness of vigor influences that come from or through the etheronic energy in its activity upon the body, in the expression or upon the plant as in its expression. Hence things that are equal to the same thing are equal to each other." Cayce (440-13) See also the entire #440 series of the Cayce readings for more information.

Q.: What is the best substance for induction, conduction, transmission of etheronic energy?

A.: "This is as raised power that would be produced from a combination of crystal. This should be rather interesting to this body, for it is very much like that used by the body in destructive forces in the Atlantean sojourn! Not that which caused the cosmic ray, or the death ray, or the healing ray - but the ray that came from setting of the prismatic influences from high heating - it may be from Arcturus or it may be from the Sun; though Arcturus would be nearer proper. The Sun may be induced to make for destructive or constructive forces, either one. Its a combination of those forces or rays that may be gathered in certain settings or prisms. It would require a lot of detail in preparing same." Cayce (440-3) 

"A mechanical device might be constructed where a vacuum even excluding ether could be drawn and maintained, developing thereby a levitating force; this similar to that force which exerts pressure upward when air is pumped into a steel barrel while submerged below surface of a medium such as water. This levitating force will be utilized in many ways, particularly in so called heavier than air ships, with the result that air navigation will be possible without the use of wings or gas. This correct when the elements must be made so condensed in their form as to prevent the ether in its finer sense from being, or escaping through the various elements that are ordinarily used for creating such vacuums. That is, a container in which a vacuum may be made must be of such a CONDENSE element as to prevent ether from going through the atomic forces of the element itself, as is seen in that of an electric bulb - this is not a vacuum, only a portion! To the finite mind this is CONSIDERED as such, but were the same character - or these same conditions produced in a DIFFERENT way - THEN these may be made to BECOME an element that would act in that way and manner, see? As is seen at present, helium becomes the greater usage in containers that may be made; yet these THEMSELVES (This is working from the opposite side, see?) - but were those gases, or those metals used that the supply of helium itself becomes the container FOR the vacuum ITSELF, see? this condensed, see? into a metal form, THEN the vacuum ITSELF, made that would lift without being lifted, see?" Cayce (195-70)  


"If the density of the one [chemical element] is not so much greater than that of the other as to overcome the attraction of its parts, the aether in each upon their approach will repel each other. If the density is greater, they will be attracted and join each other." Cullen


"Every body is surrounded by its own proper atmosphere of this fluid [ether], which grows more dense as it recedes from the surface. This is analogous to the atmosphere of excited electricity which determines bodies once got within the sphere of its attraction to the surface of the electric body. It is to be observed, that bodies thus in contact with the excited body, remain, some longer, some a shorter time in contact with that body, until they have got an atmosphere of their own: then they are propelled till meeting with some other matter, they discharge their atmosphere, and are attracted and repelled as before." Cullen


Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein

"More careful reflection teaches us, however, that the special theory of relativity does not compel us to deny ether. We may assume the existence of an ether; only we must give up ascribing a definite state of motion to it, i.e., we must by abstraction take from it the last mechanical characteristic which Lorentz had still left it... [There] is a weighty argument to be advanced in favor of the ether hypothesis. To deny ether is ultimately to assume that empty space has no physical qualities whatever. The fundamental facts of mechanics do not harmonize with this view... According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there would not only be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time (measuring-rods and clocks), nor therefore any space-time intervals in the physical sense."


Eight theses on ether by Ernst Haeckel:

I. Ether fills the whole space, in so far as it is not occupied by ponderable matter, as a continuous substance; it fully occupies the space between the atoms of ponderable matter.

II. Ether has probably no chemical quality, and is not composed of atoms. If it be supposed that it consists of minute homogeneous atoms (for instance, indivisible etheric particles of a uniform size), it must be further supposed that there is something else between these atoms, either "empty space" or a third, completely unknown medium, a purely hypothetical "inter-ether"; the question as to the nature of this brings us back to the original difficulty, and so on in infinitum.

III. As the idea of an empty space and an action at a distance is scarcely possible in the present condition of our knowledge (at least, it does not help to clear a monistic view), I postulate for ether a special structure which is not atomistic, like that of ponderable matter, and which may provisionally be called (without further determination) etheric or dynamic structure.

IV. The consistency of ether is also peculiar, on our hypothesis, and different from that of ponderable matter. It is neither gaseous, as some conceive, nor solid, as others suppose; the best idea of it can be formed by comparison with an extremely attenuated, elastic, and light jelly.

V. Ether may be called imponderable matter in the sense that we have no means of determining its weight experimentally. If it really has weight, as is very probable, it must be so slight as to be far below the capacity of our most delicate balance. Some physicists have attempted to determine its weight by the energy of the light-waves, and have discvered that it is some fifteen trillion times lighter thanatmospheric air; on that hypothesis a sphere of ether of the size of our earth would weigh at least two hundred and fifty pounds.

VI. The etheric consistency may probably (in accordance with the pyknotic theory) pass into the gaseous state under certain conditions by progressive condensation, just as a gas may be converted into a fluid, and ultimately into a solid, by lowering its temperature.

VII. Consequently, these three conditions of matter may be arranged (and it is a point of great importance in our monistic cosmogony) in a genetic, continuous order. We may distinguish five stages in it: (1) the etheric, (2) the gaseous, (3) the fluid, (4) the viscous (in the living protoplasm), and (5) the solid state.

VIII. Ether is boundless and immeasurable, like the space it occupies. It is in eternal motion; and this specific movement of ether (it is immaterial whether we conceive it as vibration, strain, condensation, etc.), in reciprocal action with mass-movement (or gravitation), is the ultimate cause of all phenomena. Haeckel


Hermann Helmholtz
Hermann Helmholtz

"Only if the ponderable particles contain charges of true electricity can the periodic alternations of the electric moments in the ether educe ponderomotive forces of the same period. The analogous assumption, that embedded atoms contain isolated northern or southern magnetism, I pass over as too improbable. On the other hand, the electrolytic phenomena, especially Faradays law of electrolytic equivalents, have long since led to the assumption that electric charges of determinate magnitude attach to the valence positions of chemically bound ions - charges that can be now positive, now negative, but which must be everywhere, for every valence position of every atom, have the same absolute magnitude."


Hertz in his conjectures that a knowledge of the structure of ether should unveil the essence of matter itself, and of its inherent properties, weight and inertia, is treading the path that leads to this knowledge. Professor Fitzgerald says:- "Ether must be the means by which electric and magnetic forces exist, it should explain chemical actions, and if possible gravity." The law of sympathetic vibration explain chemical affinities a sympathetic attractive, but inherent, force; in short, as gravity. This open up too wide a territory even but to peer into in the dawning light of Keelys system of vibratory physics. The boundary line is crossed, and the crowds of researchers in electromagnetism are full of ardor. Hertz constructed a circuit, whose period of vibration for electric currents was such that he was able to see sparks, due to the increased vibration, leaping across a small airspace in this resonant circuit; his experiments have proved and demonstrated the ethereal theory of electromagnetism: -that electromagnetic actions are due to a medium pervading all known space; while Keelys experiments have proved that all things are due to conditions of ether.


"The elementary system of the moving forces of matter depends upon the existence of a substance which is the basis (the primordially originating moving force) of all moving forces of matter, and of which it an be said as a postulate (not as a hypothesis): There exists a universally distributed all-penetrating matter within the space it occupies or fills through repulsion, which agitates itself uniformly in all its parts and endlessly persists in this motion." Kant


John W. Keely
John W. Keely

"The luminiferous ether - the compound interetheric element - in other words, celestial mind force - is the substance of which all visible and invisible things are composed." Keely

"Ether is an atomolic liquid 986,000 times the density of steel." Keely

"The fundamental mode of vibration changes as we reach the fifth subdivision [of matter], to the dominant, the diatonic third of the mass chord, which controls the vibratory states of both the etheron and interetheron. The awful might concealed in the depths of the etheric and interetheric subdivisions utterly transcends anything Science has ever known. Even the theoretical energy value of radium now accepted by Science, pales into insignificance in comparison to the energy value of an equal amount of water subdivided to the etheric or interetheric state." Keely

Law of Vibrating Atomolic Substances: "Atoms are capable of vibrating within themselves at a pitch inversely as the Dyne (the local coefficient of Gravity), and as the atomic volume, directly as the atomic weight, producing the creative force (Electricity), whose transmissive force is propagated through atomolic solids, liquids, and gases, producing induction and the static effect of magnetism upon other atoms of attraction or repulsion, according to the Law of Harmonic Attraction and Repulsion.

Scholium: The phenomenon of Dynamic Electricity through a metallic conductor and of induction are identical. In a metallic conductor, the transmission is from atom to atom, through homologous interstices, filled with ether, presenting small areas in close proximity. In crystalline structures, heat, which expands the atoms, by twisting them produces striae, increases the resistance, etc. Between parallel wires and through air the induction takes place from large areas through a rarefied medium composed of a mixture of substances, whose atoms are separated by waves of repulsion of various pitches, discordant to electric vibrations; the said atoms sympathetically absorb the vibrations and dissipate from themselves, as centers, concentric waves of electric energy which produces heat and gravism." Keely

Law of Oscillating Atomoles: "Atomoles oscillating at a uniform pitch (determined by their uniform size and weight) produce the creative force Atomolity, whose transmissive form, Gravism, is propagated through more rarefied media, producing the static effect upon all other atomoles, denominated Gravity." Keely

"The atomolic substance is what is termed the ether which fills all space and is the transmitting medium for all celestial and terrestrial forces. This is the liquid ether of occult science.

The atomoles are made up of atomolini (singular tomolinus); the subdivision of matter from this point is beyond mans power, as at this point it escapes all control of apparatus, passing through glass and hardened steel as a luminous flame without heat, which is hardly seen before it vanishes, - a perpetual flame coldly luminous." Keely

"Atomolini are ultimate units of atomoles, and when in a liquid state are the media for the transmission of gravism. The illimitable divisibility and aggregation of matter is a logical sequence." Keely

"Gravism is the transmissive form (of energy) through a medium of atomoles in the fourth state, or a medium composed of atomolini." Keely


(after referring to the velocity which is the conductance in electrostatic measure, and the resistance in electromagnetic measure of one and the same conductor, and stating that this velocity is not very different from that of light): "But its relationship to the velocity of light was brought out in a manner by Maxwell to make it really a part of theory which it never was before. Maxwell pointed out its application to the possible or probable explanation of electric effects by the influence of a medium, and showed that that medium - the medium whose motions constitute light - must be ether. Maxwells electromagnetic theory of light marks a stage of enormous importance in electromagnetic doctrine, and I cannot doubt but that in electromagnetic practice we shall derive great benefit from a pursuing of the theoretical ideas suggested by such considerations." Kelvin (Thomson)


"We thus have simply the undulatory theory of light, as an inevitable consequence of believing that the displacement of an elastic solid by which, in my old paper [of 1847], I gave merely a representation of the electric currents and the corresponding magnetic forces, is a reality. But to give anything like a satisfactory material realization of Maxwells electromagnetic theory of light, it is necessary to show electrostatic force in relation to the force (X, Y, Z) of my formulas; to explain the generation of heat according to Ohms Law in virtue of the action of this force when it causes an electric current to flow through a conductor; and to show how it is that the velocity of light in ether is equal to, or perhaps we should rather say, is, the number of electrostatic units in the electromagnetic unit of electric quantity. All this essentially involves the consideration of ponderable matter permeated by, or imbedded in ether, and a tertium quid which we may call electricity, a fluid go-between, serving to transmit force between ponderable matter and ether ... I see no way of suggesting properties of matter, of electricity, or of ether, by which all this, or any more than a very slight approach to it, can be done, and I think we must feel at present that the triple alliance, ether, electricity, and ponderable matter is rather a result of our want of knowledge, and of capacity to imagine beyond the limited present horizon of physical science, than a reality of nature." Kelvin


"In 1893 the formal development of electrodynamic theory from this point of view [by myself], inspired at the start by Fitzgeralds electric interpretation of MacCullaghs optical analysis, and by mechanical models based on Lord Kelvins construction for a rotationally elastic aether, and resting directly on the single broad dynamical basis of the principle of Least Action ... was initiated in Great Britain; it was practically complete in 1897, running parallel in the main results, though not in method or mode of development, with Lorentzs final presentation in his tract of 1895." Larmor


"I have yet another motive to undertake these inquiries. In the memoirs in which M. Hertz treats bodies in motion, he admits that the ether they contain moves with them. Now, optical phenomena have long since demonstrated that it is not always so. I therefore wished to know the laws that govern the electrical motions in bodies that traverse the ether without entraining it; and it seemed to me difficult to attain this end without having as guide a theoretical idea. The views of Maxwell [namely, on the application of mechanical principles to the field and charges as a connected mechanical system] can serve as foundation of the desired theory." Lorentz


"It has seemed to me useful to develop a theory of electromagnetic phenomena based on the idea of a ponderable matter perfectly permeable to the ether and able to move without communicating to the latter the least motion. Certain facts of optics may be invoked in support of this hypothesis and, although doubt is still permitted, it is certainly important to examine all the consequences of this view. Unfortunately, a quite serious difficulty presents itself from the beginning. How, in fact, is one to form a precise idea of a body which, moving in the bosom of the ether and consequently traversed by this medium, is at the same time the seat of an electric current or a dielectric phenomena? To surmount this difficulty, so far as I could, I have sought to reduce all the phenomena to a single one, the simplest of all, which is nothing else than the motion of an electrified body. One will see that, without any deeper study of the relation between ponderable matter and the ether, one can establish a system of equations suited to describe what passes in a system of such bodies. These equations accommodate very varied applications, which will be the object of the subsequent chapters." Lorentz


"The theory I propose may ... be called a theory of the Electromagnetic Field, because it has to do with the space in the neighborhood of the electric and magnetic bodies, and it may be called a Dynamical Theory, because it assumes that in that space there is matter in motion, by which the observed electromagnetic phenomena are produced.

What I propose now to do is to examine the consequences of the assumption that [electromagnetic] phenomena ... are those of a moving system [ether], the motion being communicated from one part of the system to another by forces, the nature and laws of which we do not yet even attempt to define, because we can eliminate these forces from the equations of motion by the method given by Larange for any connected system." Maxwell

Meade, G.R.S.

G.R.S. Meade also demonstrates that "the song remains the same."

(an excerpt) THER, CHAOS AND NIGHT

"Next come ther and Chaos, Spirit-Matter, the Bound and Infinity of Plato (Proc., Tim., ii. 117), the Purusha-Prakriti of the Snkhya. Orpheus calls this ther the Mighty Whirlpool (Simplicius, Ausc., iv.123); called Magna Vorago by Syrianus (Metaph., ii.33a). And Proclus (Tim., ii.117), speaking of Chaos, says: The last Infinity, by which also Matter is circumscribed--is the Container, the field and plane of ideas. About her is "neither limit, nor foundation, nor seat, but excessive darkness". This is the Mlaprakriti or Root-Matter of the Vedntins, and ther is the so-called first Logos, ther-Chaos being the second. And dusky Night comprehended and hid all below the Ether; [Orpheus thus] signifying that Night came first. (Malela, iv.31; Cedrenus, i.57, 84.) Then comes the Dawn of the First Creation. In the Unaging Time, Chaos, impregnated by the whirling of ther, formed itself into  THE COSMIC EGG Apion (Clement, Homil., VI.iv.671) writes that: Orpheus likened Chaos to an egg, in which the primal "elements" were all mingled together. . . . This egg was generated from the infinitude of primal matter as follows. [The first two principles were] primal matter innate with life, and a certain vortex in perpetual flux and unordered motion--from these there arose an orderly flux and interblending of essences, and thus from each, that which was most suitable to the production of life flowed to the centre of the universe, while the surrounding spirit was drawn within, as a bubble in water. Thus a spherical receptacle was formed. Then, impregnated in itself by the divine spirit which seized upon it, it revolved itself into manifestation--with the appearance of the periphery of an egg."


"Suppose that an ether strain corresponds to an electric charge, an ether displacement to the electric current, these ether vortices to the atoms - if we continue these suppositions, we arrive at what may be one of the grandest generalizations of modern science - of which we are tempted to say it ought to be true even if it is not - namely, that all phenomena of the physical universe are only different manifestations of the various modes of motion of one all-pervading ether." Michelson


The history of science records the 1887 ether-drift experiment of Albert Michelson and Edward Morley as a pivotal turning point, where the energetic ether of space was discarded by mainstream physics. Thereafter, the postulate of "empty space" was embraced, along with related concepts which demanded constancy in light-speed, such as Albert Einsteins relativity theory. The now famous Michelson-Morley experiment is widely cited, in nearly every physics textbook, for its claimed "null" or "negative" results. Less known, however, is the far more significant and detailed work of Dayton Miller.

Dayton Millers 1933 paper in Reviews of Modern Physics details the positive results from over 20 years of experimental research into the question of ether-drift, and remains the most definitive body of work on the subject of light-beam interferometry. Other positive ether-detection experiments have been undertaken, such as the work of Sagnac (1913) and Michelson and Gale (1925), documenting the existence in light-speed variations (c+v > c-v), but these were not adequately constructed for detection of a larger cosmological ether-drift, of the Earth and Solar System moving through the background of space. Dayton Millers work on ether-drift was so constructed, however, and yielded consistently positive results.

Millers work, which ran from 1906 through the mid-1930s, most strongly supports the idea of an ether-drift, of the Earth moving through a cosmological medium, with calculations made of the actual direction and magnitude of drift. By 1933, Miller concluded that the Earth was drifting at a speed of 208 km/sec. towards an apex in the Southern Celestial Hemisphere, towards Dorado, the swordfish, right ascension 4 hrs 54 min., declination of -70 33, in the middle of the Great Magellanic Cloud and 7 from the southern pole of the ecliptic. (Miller 1933, p.234) This is based upon a measured displacement of around 10 km/sec. at the interferometer, and assuming the Earth was pushing through a stationary, but Earth-entrained ether in that particular direction, which lowered the velocity of the ether from around 200 to 10 km/sec. at the Earths surface. Today, however, Millers work is hardly known or mentioned, as is the case with nearly all the experiments which produced positive results for an ether in space. Modern physics today points instead to the much earlier and less significant 1887 work of Michelson-Morley, as having "proved the ether did not exist".


"The exceeding smallness of its [ether] Particles may contribute to the greatness of the force by which those Particles may recede from one another, and thereby make the Medium exceedingly more rare and elastik than Air, and by consequence exceedingly less able to resist the motions of Projectiles, and exceedingly more able to press upon gross Bodies, by endeavoring to expand it self." Newton

"[He supposed that nature] "may be nothing but various Contextures of some certaine aethereall Spirits or vapours condensd as it were by precipitation, much after the manner that vapours are condensed into water or exhalations into grosser Substances and after condensation wrought into various formes, at first by the immediate hand of the Creator, and ever since by the power of Nature... Thus perhaps may all things be originated from aether." Newton


In Tom Bearden’s glossary under the Tesla, Nikola heading……… recognizes Tesla’s genius regarding his ‘understanding’ that….. "From his experiments he knew that the EM wave in vacuum was longitudinal, like sound waves……. I showed that the universal medium is a gaseous body in which only longitudinal pulses can be propagated, involving alternating compressions and expansions similar to those produced by sound waves in the air. Thus, a wireless transmitter does not emit Hertz waves which are a myth, but sound waves in the ether, behaving in every respect like those in the air, except that, owing to the great elastic force and extremely small density of the medium, their speed is that of light." [Tesla]


Famous American migr electrical inventor and eccentric who’s numerous inventions fueled much of the electrical 20th century.

Tesla produced the AC system, including polyphase systems. From his experiments he knew that the EM wave in vacuum was longitudinal, like sound waves. In spite of his great accomplishments, his eccentricities and grandiose pronouncements did not endear him to electrodynamicists! An example is his acrid comment: "...I showed that the universal medium is a gaseous body in which only longitudinal pulses can be propagated, involving alternating compressions and expansions similar to those produced by sound waves in the air. Thus, a wireless transmitter does not emit Hertz waves which are a myth, but sound waves in the ether, behaving in every respect like those in the air, except that, owing to the great elastic force and extremely small density of the medium, their speed is that of light." Another major example is his statement: "The Hertz wave theory of wireless transmission may be kept up for a while, but I do not hesitate to say that in a short time it will be recognized as one of the most remarkable and inexplicable aberrations of the scientific mind which has ever been recorded in history."

Ironically, modern quantum mechanics has almost proven Tesla right that "the universal medium is a gaseous body." Today the modern QM vacuum is very much like a virtual particle gas. And of course the discussions in this present annotated glossary show why I personally am of the opinion that Tesla was also correct in his firm disbelief that those Faraday-Maxwell "taut physical strings without physical holders" filled the ether and provided transverse EM wave oscillations. I also agree with him that the EM wave in vacuum is a longitudinal wave, exactly like a sound wave. I believe that the transverse gyroelectron precession waves that our instruments actually measure in the conductor when it receives an incoming EM wave from the vacuum, proves that the vacuum wave is indeed longitudinal—else it would seem we must discard the spin of an electron and the theory of gyroscopes. Finally, one should see, e.g., Patrick Cornille, "Inhomogeneous Waves and Maxwells Equations." Chapter 4 in Essays on the Formal Aspects of Electromagnetic Theory, Aklesh Lakhtakia, Ed., World Scientific, New York, 1993. Cornille clearly shows that Maxwells equations are directly created by scalar potential interferometry. As he states, this means that EM force field wave s are created by the interference of sound-type scalar potential waves, or "sound creates light." This strongly supports Teslas original statement that EM waves in the vacuum are actually EM sound waves, much like sound waves in a gas.

As a viewer of the research of others it is most gratifying to come across those statements of ‘fact’ that appear to ‘corroborate’ one’s beliefs…impressions…….and attitudes regarding our understanding of the ‘system’ of ‘creation’.

We live in a world of ‘chaos’ theory……..and of extreme ‘complexity’, ranging from the ‘micro’ to the ‘macro’ systems dealing in ‘complex’ ‘infinities’………So when one finds a refreshing statement like Tesla’s, equating: "EM wave in vacuum was longitudinal, like sound waves" I regain my respect for the Biblical pronouncement: ‘Then God [said], Let there be light" as the first initiator of ‘Creation.’ [from the Book of Genesis].

For the ‘Light" that ‘God" ‘spoke’ into ‘existence’ became the ‘canvas’ upon which the ‘Creation’ was ‘painted’ [structured]

All the Best,

"Thus this motion [of the ether] was so slow that the experiments of M. Lodge, although very precise, were yet not precise enough to detect it. To say all that I think, I believe that if these experiments had been a hundred or a thousand times more precise, the result would still have been negative.

In support of this opinion I have nothing to offer but a subjectve conviction; if the result had been positive, one would have been able to measure the density of the ether, and - if the reader forgive me the vulgarity of this expression - it is repugnant to me to think that the ether is si arriv que cela [that big a success]."

Dale Pond and Atlin

Ether has had a bad rap for over 100 years. The scientists of the 1800s worked with it to great advantage until the Ether Theory was killed off by Einsteinian followers. Einstein believed in it yet those coming after him disallowed its existence.

Keely not only believed in it be developed machinery to make use of its powers. I have stated before that ether (as Keely used it) was dissociated H and O atoms. The theory being that a corpuscle of matter is composed of smaller more energetic corpuscles or particles. What are the smaller more energetic particles making up H? According to conventional science H is composed of electrons and neutrons. Further these components of H are composed of photons which are composed of quarks, etc. So far so good.

What if photons, quarks and gluons were earlier known by another name yet possessed the same descriptive characteristics?

It just so happens Russell gives us a perfectly sound and logical morphology of these pre-Hydrogen elements. There are 25 of them (according to Russell) one of which he calls Luminon of which he says:

"Luminon (403-), is the basis of the cold light of the future. Luminosity [from Luminon] of better color can be produced by regenerative excitation of this radiative gas at about one forty-thousandth of the expenditure of energy necessary to produce the same degree of luminosity by the use of a tungsten filament.

Luminon can also be produced by transmutation at a negligible expenditure.

Luminon is plentiful in many substances but its separation would involve more labor and expense than would its production by transmutation, which means simply the changing of dimension of a basic supply which plentiful in those octaves familiarly termed "the air". [The Universal One, page 100.]

I submit that Russells Luminon is none other than Keelys Luminferous Ether. I also submit my own theory that a photon of concentional physics is the very same element which exists under a range varying pressure gradients (like everything else). The ether then is none other than our quantum soup composed of many quantum entities. Now this ether is a much differnt entity than the aether.  See Meades description of aether and this chart which shows the relationships between aether, ether and atomic matter (in that order of concentration and aggregation).

Cavitation of water creates Sonoluminescense (light) and releases constituent particles. This process of subjecting water to a quick high vacuum lowers the pressure potential level thus dissociating the water molecule into its constitutent parts. The very same process Keely used. And this is the very same process Russell repeatedly stresses in The Universal One.

The insight to awaken is Russell has provided us with not only a chart of these etheric elements but gives the reasons, premises, principles and logic for their existence and dynamics. We have in our hands a beginners treatise from which we can develop a solid foundation for etheric physics. [Dale Pond 3/24/02]


S. Zolver Preston, in his Physics of the Ether, says: "A quantity of matter representing a total mass of only one grain, and possessing the normal velocity of the ether particles, that of a wave of light, encloses a state of energy represented by upward of one thousand millions of foot tons. Or the mass of a single grain contains an energy not less than that possessed by a mass of 70,000 tons, moving at the speed of a cannon ball (1200 feet per second); or, otherwise, a quantity of matter, representing a mass of one grain, imbued with the velocity of the ether particles, encloses an amount of energy which, if entirely utilized, would be competent to project a weight of 100 tons to a height of one mile and nine-tenths of a mile."


"Indeed, no other art of the whole compass of philosophy affords so fine a scene for ingenious speculation. Here the imagination may have full play, in conceiving of the manner in which an invisible agent produces an almost infinite variety of visible effects. As the agent is invisible, every philosopher is at liberty to make it whatever he pleases, and ascribe to it such properties and powers as are most convenient hor his purpose." Priestley


"If the degree of Heat in a solid Body, to which the Expansive Force of the Aether between the Parts of Body is Proportional, be equal to the Force wherewith the Parts of the Body cohere; that Body, setting aside external Compression, will become fluid, and its Parts, by yielding to a Force impressed, be rendered capable of moving easily amongst themselves." Robinson


Walter Russell

"Light is the living substance of Mind in action. It is the creating principle of the One substance.

The One substance is the etheric "spiritual" substance of the One universal Mind.

The entire "created" universe of all that is, ever has been, or ever will be, is but the One substance in motion, light." [Russell, The Universal One]

[It is] "by means of chemistry that Sir Isaac Newton has made a great part of his surprising discoveries in natural philosophy; and that curious set of queries, which we find at the end of his optics, are almost wholly chemical.

"Keely has attained the transmission of the etheric current in the same manner as the electric current with this one notable difference, that, in order to show insulation to the skeptical, he passes the etheric current, through blocks of glass in running his vibratory devices." [Snell Manuscript]


"whether one does not in general have to conceive magnetic and electric phenomena as conditions of a medium, perhaps the luminferous ether, and whether particularly one does not have to assume that magnetic and electric forces are only apparent actions at a distance, being in fact immediate actions of the medium, dependent on its momentary states and therefore also propagated, just as these states, with finite velocity."

The magnificent energy matrices which coalesce to form galaxies also determine your health, the nature of atomic bonds, and all dynamics in between. This paper will discuss the structure of Ether and those forces, advancing a generalized, panoramic perspective. Better yet, and more importantly, the dynamics discussed can be applied to everyday life, and used to more deeply grasp the subtleties of subtle force physics. The authors work on two Etheric devices and case studies from her practice will be offered as evidence that the dynamics discussed hold much promise for improving the quality of life. The Universe is all One dynamic, and growing to understand it in broader terms makes all of life more understandable. Above all, dynamics are presented to catalyze the readers deeper insights.

If we take a broad view of the fractal energy matrices of the Universe, we are struck by the spiraled forms which proliferate. This fact was also observed and incorporated into Ancient Oriental science and art. Your physical form was condensed into a spiral form as your cells multiplied in utero. Ferns and most other living entities develop in a spiral fashion, also. But what are the subtle forces which conspire to model physical form from energy swirls?

Peaceful, Armed Forces

To answer what subtle forces condense energy into matter, let us visualize a spiral of dark and light "arms", such as appears in a galaxy. This form may be seen as a flattened vortex. Any vortex requires a balance between centrifugal (entropic) forces and centripetal (centropic) forces, or it ceases to exist. Contemporary Western physics has chosen to focus upon the entropic forces as dominant powers underlying all dynamics. Were you taught that all things flowed to entropy, and that it would be necessary to invoke mans arsenal of technology to overcome a naturally diminished existence? If so, you were misled into thinking of the Universe as a unidirectional, lopsided place, which is unnatural. The more cogent Truth is that the Universe and all its forces are balanced ebbs and flows of varied movements which subsequently direct physical form. Rudolph Steiner wrote and lectured abundantly about how the formative etheric (centropic) and astral forces collaborated to create form out of energy. The flows resulting from Ether always seek to establish greater harmony. When phenomena dont seem logical, we are failing to see this Truth.

Centropic forces cannot be separated from entropic forces any more than yin can be isolated from yang. To propose that one element of the whole could solely determine the course of the Universe is to overlook entire dimensions of dynamics. Such "logic" would replace our natural sense of wonder and joy (a state of living in dynamic openness) with perception-bound reasoning that portrays life as anything less. This is not good enough for us any longer. We can shift our perceptions in a most fulfilling way by using our consciousness to entertain more responsive and far-reaching vision. Ether is the forgotten, centropic factor in the formula of life. Until Ether and centropy are factored back into our thinking patterns, our vision is half-blind, as are all related corollaries. More importantly, renewed vision viewed with new eyes creates boundless possibilities for improved life.

Before discussing the Ether and resultant subtle forces, let us discuss the usefulness of the topic. What good are theories if we cannot eventually use them to improve our lives? By assimilating the larger energy dynamic picture, it is possible to use the information to reconfigure physical substance via bioenergy. That is to say, one can grow to alter her/his own Electromagnetic Field (EMF) dynamics so that s/he can speed up healing or rearrange Ether. Most people accept the concept of using biofeedback to alter physiological functions. Advanced bioelectrical force alteration through expansion of ones awareness can routinely improve physical and psychological healing outcomes. The Etheric device developed by the writer supports this assertion, as do healing practices of the Aborigines, Orientals, and other holistic thinkers who saw the Universe as more than an assemblage of components. In cultures and with individuals who work with the subtle forces instead of depending on the denser physical methods of healing, "miracles" are experienced frequently. The "norm" is a speedy healing. More specifics on this will be presented later.

What is Ether?

This paper is concerned with delineating the missing part to the puzzle that determines subtle force dynamics. That part is Ether. Ether is the blank canvas upon which the subtle forces emerge; the substrate through which Etheric, Astral, magnetic and gravitational force matrices crystallize their structure, themselves becoming templates for energy condensing into physical form.

Etheric Force is an implosive, center-seeking essence; the centropic force within a vortex, the "invisible light energy arm" of the galaxy spiral, or the yin (female) principal. It is counterpart and partner to the entropic, centrifugal, "visible light arm", radiating yang (masculine) principal which is Astral energy. Modern Western science has focused away from Etheric Forces in deference to cultivating the Astral, male, radiant, explosive forces of the Universe.

In more concretely applied terms, Ether may be visualized as a medium which surrounds and permeates us. There is a layer of Ether around Earth and each living entity. Your Etheric layer is your Etheric Body. It is the part of the EMF that lies closest to your physical body (demonstrating its center-seeking properties) and is an energy template for your physical body. It is the Etheric Body that sustains the "current of injury" whose purpose is to construct energy matrices which densify into regenerative tissue, as documented by Dr. Robert O. Becker.

True to the nature of the Universe, Ether is paradoxically what can unite or separate any entities in the Universe. The insulator/conductor, selective, dual properties are activated by the pattern of matrices formed through the Ether. What forms those insulating or conducting matrices? Not the Ether, which is an inert medium of transit or resistance, but very subtle wave patterns generated by external sources (such as living things). It is the characteristics of these waves that shape the Etheric matrices. Herein lies the mechanism of how intent can effect subtle forces, which effect physical outcome.

What can these Etheric matrices do? When open, they can relay bioenergy messages. The wave patterns which created the matrices in the Ether use those pathways to communicate with others, or to condense their energy into physical structure, depending upon the nature of the matrix. Vibrational patterns traversing the matrices, or channels within the Ether, are able to affect nearby wave patterns (and their sources) as well as those which are distal in space and time. It is Ether that bridges the gap with pathways that form between two entities. The Ether is the medium through which Rupert Sheldrakes morphogenetic field dynamics are catalyzed. Dr. Sheldrakes work corroborates the premise of this paper; that a unified field transcends the boundaries of space and time. His work focuses upon morphic or biofield dynamics. This paradigm is fractally true in the fields of subatomic mechanics to interstellar relationships, and anything in between. Here we have a basis for Ether as a unified field, as well as a medium for telepathic communication.

To illustrate this concept, let us consider that a vibrational pattern is generated and sent out into the Universe. Let us envision that of the myriad of vibrational patterns that make up matter and energy, we focalize on the thought of a person we know. This thought is the source of a bioelectric impulse sent out to the Universe. The resultant vibration is really a combination of many vibrations (our thoughts, feelings and will), which relate to our reaction to that person. Let us say that we feel Love for the person of whom we are thinking. This feeling has a particular vibration, just as does our visualization of their physical self, our memories of them, etc. The vibrational characteristics of wave patterns which contain Loving intent effect the surrounding Ether in a particular manner. Such highly evolved intent vibrationally creates a "spin" on the original vibratory transmission. The Love consciousness embodies harmonious entropic and centropic vector components. When these are imparted within our above-mentioned thought, their balanced centripetal and centrifugal force vectors spin the vibratory thought pattern into a highly efficient, even cohesive, "rifled" flow pattern. Since the outcome is not predominantly entropic, distance is no "matter". This mechanism is a cogent explanation for remote healing, viewing and communication. In our example, one who is adept at concentrating thought, will and Love remotely will quite frequently be able to effect remote physical effects. These would include simultaneous communication, "coincidental" event effects, and physical reactions by the object of a remote healing.

Seven Types of Etheric Force

The writers exploration has led her to research historic theories about Ether, and experiment with the densification and accumulation of it. It is hypothesized that the inert medium of Ether, when densified and rarified according to Universal Law, can be catalyzed to create fractally shaped channels. These channels form the pathways through which their associated components may flow, given certain conditions. The components flow through channels which conform to their specific shape. For instance, in Liquid Ether, the structure of gravitational strings finds correspondence with the shapes of the channels made available by surrounding influences. Among the influences molding the Ether are states of consciousness and intent focused upon it. The writer has been conducting small-scale research into the applied use of this mechanism in assisting people with Learning Disabilities (LD), with success. (Fractally, there are striking similarities between the bioelectric mechanisms of some forms of LD and the Etheric matrix mechanisms accessed by the Etheric accumulator, Sophigurate.)

There are different combinations of matrices within Ether which create seven forms of Ether. Original research into the varied forms of Ether are presented here for the first time. The explanations are very basic and stated briefly. They are as follows:

Seven Types of Etheric Force

1. LIQUID ETHER FORCE. Composed of gravitational strings, karmic force and Love. Properties are somewhat liquid and flowing. Liquid Ether has the ability to directly support Etheric functions of a living body. This is the Ether that is accumulated in one of the devices yet to be investigated below. It is useful in healing physical trauma and neurological and attitude problems, as shown by the authors research.

2. REGENERATIVE ETHER FORCE. Composed of pulsed current strings, and a web of resultant pulsed magnetic fields. It would be helpful for healing all wounds, and for degenerative conditions.

3. TRANSMUTATIONAL ETHER FORCE. The specific contents are not elucidated at this time, but consist of solar energy transmuted by humans. This Ether Force is used exclusively for spiritual purposes.

4. INSPIRATIONAL ETHER FORCE. Contents include compassion, strings of celestial (Astral) energy, and Universal radiance (a balanced blend of Etheric and Astral components of the cosmos). This makes possible communication of the beauty and ingenuity provided by the Universe. The heart and spiritual organs of perception combine forces to communicate cosmic Truth for use by the many. This Ether Force is helpful to raise the consciousness of an individual or group toward a high cause.

5. TRANSCENDENTAL ETHER FORCE. Applied through compliance with Universal Law, magnetic alignment, and the Christ Consciousness. This Ether Force is helpful in transcending time, space, and consciousness boundaries. Useful in any area.

6. MULTIDIMENSIONAL ETHER FORCE Composed of Love, compassion, karmic force, Christ Consciousness, and planetary forces. Helpful in bringing the individual into harmony with his/her potential to raise the consciousness of the human condition. Useful in healing a blockage of the rightful use of the self. Such blockages result in ego imbalance.

7. SYNERGISTIC ETHER FORCE Perhaps the ultimate Etheric Force, it is composed of varying quantities of the previously mentioned Etheric components (depending upon circumstances). This Ether represents the coming together of karmic forces in such a way as to contribute to the enlightenment of the race in a most highly orchestrated fashion. THIS WILL BE THE SOURCE OF FREE ENERGY. IT WILL BE KARMICALLY DIRECTED AND UNIQUELY SIMPLE.

The Nature of Densified and Rarified Ether

The nature of Universal dynamics is based upon a balanced and harmonious flow between polar forces. Each portion of the Universe, each creature, is the product of the forces which act between densified and rarified Ether. At the very basis of the dynamics previously discussed is Ether. The inert Ether itself has those vortical, galactic "arms" which provide the substrate for the dance of yin and yang.

Densified Ether may be represented as the arms which appear to be dark, but are non- visible light. Its density changes the nature of waves that pass through it. Rarified Ether is the male, radiant, visible light arm of the galaxy. It can create resistance to wave transmission due to lack of medium to support the wave pattern. Harmonious juxtapositioning of these two polar densities of Ether imparts vibrational characteristics to transient wave patterns that allow them to become cohesive and constructive. By constructive, it is meant that such waves induce positive changes to the advantage of the overall workings of the system. This translates into an improved quality of life, but rarely a quantifiable one in terms of Western Science. When exposed to such harmonious ambience, one "feels peaceful and better". In order to quantify this, science needs to evaluate entire systems, because the positive effects do not necessarily present themselves in the fragments selected for lab tests. Bigger picture changes can be quantified, but require an attitude of more respectfulness toward all facets of the studies, regarding how the researchers consciousness effects outcome. The morphogenetic or Ether field paradigm points to the impossibility for us to honestly isolate any portion of data collection. Hence, "modern" research protocol becomes ineffectual, evidence of which is replicated daily (see any scientific trade journal in which studies cite erroneous assumptions which were previously proven "true").

May Ether Force Be With You

Let us look at the implications of Ether upon the individual and society. Within your Electromagnetic Field (EMF) resides an Etheric component which is a fractal of Universal Ether. The more the Etheric dynamic is cultivated through development of the consciousness, the clearer the thought patterns become. You will note that the components of most of the forms of Ether mentioned above deal with consciousness patterns of energy, such as Love, compassion, etc. This is an important key to understanding Ether. Through our actions, thoughts and intents, we alter Ethers properties as a medium. This assertion is corroborated by the research conducted using the Etheric accumulator, Sophigurate, which will be discussed later.

Highly efficient, subtle force wave patterns are inherent in highly evolved consciousness and thought patterns. Such patterns coincide with vector forces which are most efficient at connecting one entity to another; a holographic sort of information supersensible highway. In traditional Aboriginal society, people communicated almost exclusively via telepathy. The claim is stated that people can only accomplish this if there is an absence of all dishonesty about the Self. This means developing a psyche freed from the chaotic EMF flow patterns of fear and illusion. The premise of this paper, that we can elicit dramatically more positive effects by raising our consciousness (thus densifying Ether), conforms to the Aborigines experience.

Other traditional cultures who place a strong emphasis on high ethical standards and a raised consciousness also experience "inexplicable" positive outcomes or "miracles", according to our definition of reality (science). Among the examples of occurrences which have been observed, are "unnatural" alteration of weather patterns, time and physical properties.

When the Dalai Lama fled in exile from his beloved Tibet, armed Chinese forces assisted by air surveillance were unable to find him and his retinue because of a dense mist which dissipated as he reached the safety of India. Buddhist monks and Hindu Holy People routinely alter rain patterns. Wilhelm Reich dabbled in weather and cloud manipulation in conjunction with his "cloub-buster" and "resonator tubes", an Ether flow enhancer. It was this experimentation that caused the persistent cloud cover in the Los Alamos desert which so perturbed the bomb researchers that Reich was the object of many threats and injunctions from the FDA. Eventually, he was jailed. (In addition to this misadventure, he created the Deadly Orgone Energy, Oranur, [as a reaction between his helpful Orgone Energy and a piece of radioactive material], he died while in jail.)

The development of the ability to direct Ether Force must be accompanied by a highly advanced sensitivity regarding Universal Truth. One may gain such spiritual insightfulness through highly placed intent and a Good Heart, both powerful shapers of Etheric Force patterns. If a strong foundation of keen spiritual sensitivity is not established first, outcomes of research may be destructive, even if well intended. Examples, sadly, abound throughout history.

A good first step toward developing a consciousness which is conducive to responsibly harnessing the power of Ether and the subtle forces is to cultivate a strong, densified Etheric Field with which to work. This is best thought of as being in constant development, as one can always fine- tune the cultivation of the subtle force. EMFbeyond its present boundaries. There are sufficient borders to crash, even for an adept. Ones Etheric Field forms the connection to the Unified Field.Through constant cultivation of the EMF and Etheric Field, it is possible to remotely view, travel, appear or heal. Some have been able to biolocate in more than one place at a time. Sai Baba and other prophets have been able to manifest physical artifacts from "thin air" (a.k.a. the Ethers). Sai Baba also changes his physical stature from day to day.

Psychic Surgery takes advantage of a highly developed Souls ability to reconstruct physical matter, rendering it penetrable to an open hand. On a less ambitious scale, it is possible for you to increase your inventiveness and understanding of the Universe through conscious cultivation of your own subtle bioelectric forces. You can become able to feel and know much more, and then to manifest positive energy shifts around you by enhancing your Etheric Force field.

How does this work? Ether imparts, through resonance, its ability to crystallize energy matrices from whence physical form will follow. The Etheric Body invites into the Being as much Ether as it can take. Energy leaks and sluggishness in the EMF, created as a result of negativity and fear in the vibrational consciousness patterns, inhibit energy resonance between the Ether and the Ether Body. Thus the Body feels a sense of disconnection and an inability to identify with Etheric Forces. One whose bioenergetic constitution maintains a high degree of integrity discovers that right use of these Etheric Forces can alter physical dimension "givens".

An exercise to develop your ability to nurture and "feel" your own Etheric Field follows. Growing more and more relaxed and placing your feet on the ground, feel the Earths energy coming up through your feet. If you dont feel it, or are not sure, pretend you do. Let it flow upward through your legs, trunk and out the top of your head. Let this flow strengthen and continue. It fills you with peacefulness and a sense of communion with Earth. It feels warm and nurturing. As this energy flows stronger and stronger, you will also cultivate the simultaneous flow of celestial energy from Heaven into your crown chakra, down through your head, neck, trunk, legs and out your feet. Let the energy flows of both Heaven and Earth combine in energizing harmony. This sacred combination of the yin and yang energies creates particularly strong and high speed bioenergy vortices. These allow the physical body to simultaneously assimilate and radiate greater amounts of positive subtle forces.

The simultaneous absorption and radiation of constructive energy combines two poles, yin and yang, and this can create Neutrality. This is the Neutral Center of which John Keely wrote; the state of poised and powerful latency from which physical and other dimensions can be altered. In Johns inventions, he made use of this knowledge to disassociate atomic bonds with Ether Force and created very sophisticated dances between polar and neutral force fields.

How wonderful if we could apply this information to generate energy, as John Keely did. How sublime if we could apply these principles to our own lives and consciousness. What good are the theories if they do not have practical use in elevating the quality of our lives? What are some of the more practical uses to you, a New Scientist? Please read on for answers.

Etheric Instruments of Change

Let us begin discussion of applying Ether to everyday interests by learning from two Etheric Instruments. They hold in common that they were created with intent to help humanity, to build a dream, and without intent to fix outcome to a permanent concept. These were labors of Love, devoted to discovering more about the Universe and its Nature. Both of these devices reflect the New Science paradigm; that object and subject are connected through process, and that outcome is really a step in the process. The process is awakening the Self to its divine wisdom.


The first invention examined will be a device named Sophigurate (So- figure-8), which was designed and built by the author. The instrument is a series of figure eight windings housed within a geometric, phi-proportioned housing of specifically simple earth materials, where Loving intent to heal is fed into a silver contact, travels through the Etheric accumulation/transformation chamber, and exits via wire to storage within a clay "battery".

The time has come for a project which presents an opportunity to physically feel and experience Ether; an entity shrouded in conceptual, theoretical mystery. Sophigurate makes Ether Force palpable.

The form of Etheric Force accumulated is Liquid Ether Force, or Love "stepped up" by sacred geometry. Its specific components are Love, gravitational strings, and karmic force. Liquid Ether Force is densified Ether that supports matrix structures which can crystallize gravitational strings. The state of latency resides within Ether to be activated by intent and consciousness. Consciousness can densify the Ether, whereas intent catalyses the matrix channels. It is stored for use as a healing non- substance, as an experimental curiosity, and for a healthful ambient presence in ones environment.

Experimental use has demonstrated clearly that physical trauma healing and neurological and other bioelectric conductive malfunctions respond with much greater bioefficiency than "normal". A sense of well-being is frequently experienced. About 80% of those exposed to its beneficial emanation physically feel sensation. The health facilitator is "taken out of the circuit", as the Liquid Ether flows where and if needed, according to karmic dictate. This is a new paradigm to modern thinkers.

Case histories regarding Sophigurates use are available from the writer. One example is a "non-believer" who agreed to Sophigurates use only after enduring several straight months of neck and back pain which failed to respond to aggressive, multi-practitioner, establishment therapies. Within half an hour of Sophigurates use, the person felt the pain subside, and was able to sleep peacefully for the first time in two months. The pain-free state, as well as a dramatic improvement in spirit and personality, lasted until negative patterns of worry were reestablished several months later. Other cases show that long-range, dramatic healing is possible when an awakened consciousness is maintained.


The second example of Etheric Science made manifest comes as a group effort to research and develop a Musical Sphere, or Dynasphere which was invented and mysteriously operational 100 years ago thanks to the genius of John Keely. The team consists of several members, headed by Dale Pond. Specification, construction, and energy dynamics input from divine inspiration were contributed via the writer of this paper. The outcome of team collaboration has been the construction and development of Atlin, an updated Dynasphere.

Atlin is an instrument of Etheric dynamics who will rotate as a result of acoustic stimulation, and proper Etheric flow patterns. Research continues to discern those dynamics. John Keely left a rich legacy of ingenious research into subtle force physics, but many secrets interpreting the awesome power within every atom died with him. As a group, we are seeking to understand and demonstrate how becoming consonant with subtle forces provides an Etherphone to the Universe; being centered and peaceful nestles one within natural subtle flow patterns of consciousness, thought and creativity that avail one of understanding Truth. In this case, we are seeking to understand the vibrational triggers to create polarity mode- shifting in controlled patterns, so that subtle forces such as Ether can evoke physical force differentials that can move atoms (in the shape of our Dynasphere, for instance). This energy-to-matter dynamic is routinely seen in enlightened healing. Subtle energy can have more dramatic, yet quieter effects on physical matter than crude physical interventions. Enlightened intent combined with laying on of hands or remediating a destructive thought pattern has the power to remove cancer, and with only positive side effects. Likewise, the enlightened choice of precise pitch applied to glass can shatter it more eloquently than a sledge hammer. Our society has armed us with sledge hammers, then silver bullets to go forth into the world and overcome what we perceive as impediments to our progress. So many deleterious effects have we wrought that we are being forced to seek answers and Truth in obscure, invisible places. The visionaries always see the signs of change first. As New Scientists, do we choose sledge hammers, silver bullets, or a raised consciousness that carries our minds and creativity back into Oneness with our greatest possession: The Heart to use the forces of the Universe?

Implications of Findings to Everyday Life

In conclusion, let us look deeply into the Universe within ourselves in order to find more enlightened inventiveness to apply to our worlds needs. How is this done? By expanding ones Labor of Love into a dimension that transcends the self. That dimension is Love for something greater and more powerful than things of this physical existence. This "something greater" is individually unique to each person, yet is her/his connection to the Universe and the True Soul. For one it will be the wish to help Mother Earth. For another to provide a better world for the children to inherit, and another will dedicate her work to bring increased Peace and Love into the workplace, or home. These divine driving forces are more subtle than sledge hammers or even silver bullets, and they provide the subtle energy matrices which connect us with our True selves and kindred spirits so that we might do the work we really need and want to do. Spiritual connections such as these are latent with much power. They are built through and of the Ethers. A truly raised consciousness is ones phonecard into the vast communication system that exists within the Ether.

How do you earn a phonecard to increased inventiveness, or happiness? By Loving more. Loving your work, Loving yourself enough to invest your time in people, places and activities that feed your Soul. Loving the wonder that surrounds us in the mundane.

"The Universe is really a simple place. Its simplicity outshines the most intricate and clever of mans machinations or discoveries of truth. I request that all of you spend more time in scientific observation out doors where you can observe Nature each day. Such observation will yield you many insights: spiritual Oneness, a clearer understanding of chaos theory, and repeated demonstrations of wave mechanics. In general, you may increase resonance with the ambient vibratory patterns of the Nature World (who exists in greater harmony than the thinking souls)." -Albert Einstein

Your continuing quest to find your own way to best help this world starts with your own Heart. Consult it frequently during each day, and ask that divine inspiration, using the medium of the Ether, be received by you for use in a waiting world in need. Since intent is a large portion of the key to understanding and resourcefulness, this request becomes a key component in realizing the dreams of the Universe that you crystallize.

Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla

"... Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curving of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies, and producing the opposite effects, straightening out the curves. Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible - But even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for the motions of the bodies as observed, and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion. So are all attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the ether and the indispensable function it plays in the phenomena."

"My second discovery was of a physical truth of the greatest importance. As I have searched the entire scientific records in more than a half dozen languages for a long time without finding the least anticipation, I consider myself the original discoverer of this truth, which can be expressed by the statement: There is no energy in matter other than that received from the environment." — Nikola Tesla

H. Winfield Secor, Tesla Maps Our Electrical Future, Science and Invention, 19(12), p. 1077, 1124-1126. Quote: "Tesla upholds the startling theory formulated by him long ago, that the radio transmitters as now used, do not emit Hertz waves, as commonly believed, but waves of sound... He says that a Hertz wave would only be possible in a solid ether, but he has demonstrated (as has Keely) already in 1897 that the ether is a gas, which can only transmit waves of sound; that is such as are propagated by alternate compressions and rarefactions of the medium in which transverse waves are absolutely impossible."

In his 1891 A.I.E.E. lecture at Columbia College, Tesla said in pertinent part (emphasis mine): "What is electricity, and what is magnetism? "...We are now confident that electric and magnetic phenomena are attributable to the ether, and we are perhaps justified in saying that the effects of static electricity are effects of ether in motion". "...we may speak of electricity or of an electric condition, state or effect". "...we must distinguish two such effects, opposite in character neutralizing each other". "...for in a medium of the properties of the ether, we cannot possibly exert a strain, or produce a displacement or motion of any kind, without causing in the surrounding medium an equivalent and opposite effect." "...its condition determines the positive and negative character." "We know that it acts like an incompressible fluid;" "...the electro-magnetic theory of light and all facts observed teach us that electric and ether phenomena are identical." "The puzzling behavior of the ether as a solid to waves of light and heat, and as a fluid to the motion of bodies through it, is certainly explained in the most natural and satisfactory manner by assuming it to be in motion, as Sir William Thomson has suggested." "Nor can anyone prove that there are transverse ether waves emitted from an alternate current machine; to such slow disturbances, the ether, if at rest, may behave as a true fluid."

In his statements, Tesla was balancing the various arguments in preparation for his decision: "...Electricity, therefore, cannot be called ether in the broad sense of the term; but nothing would seem to stand in the way of calling electricity ether associated with matter, or bound ether; or, in other words, that the so-called static charge of the molecule is ether associated in some way with the molecule."

"...It cannot differ in density, ether being incompressible: it must, therefore, be under some strain or in motion, and the latter is the most probable." Tesla therefore believed in an ether which was in motion relative to earth, because the earth is in motion.

The thing which Tesla had realized, was that ether possesses electric charges which are deposited on atoms. In supporting the "dynamic" ether concept, he was supporting the "stationary ether" concept, since the "motion" he referred to was "apparent" motion of the ether perceived by an observer on earth, relative to a stationary ether.

The importance of cosmic motion to the electromagnetic effects of static charges was brought up by Tesla in his lecture: "About fifteen years ago, Prof. Rowland demonstrated a most interesting and important fact, namely, that a static charge carried around produces the effects of an electric current." "...and conceiving the electrostatically charged molecules in motion, this experimental fact gives us a fair idea of magnetism. We can conceive lines or tubes of force which physically exist, being formed of rows of directed moving molecules; we can see that these lines must be closed, that they must tend to shorten and expand, etc. It likewise explains in a reasonable way, the most puzzling phenomenon of all, permanent magnetism, and, in general, has all the beauties of the Ampere theory without possessing the vital defect of the same, namely, the assumption of molecular currents. Without enlarging further upon the subject, I would say, that I look upon all electrostatic, current and magnetic phenomena as being due to electrostatic molecular forces."

In these statements, Tesla showed he was aware that any "stationary" locale on earth is actually in fantastic motion ("70,000 mph"). The electrostatic charges "carried around" are currents between atoms and the ether, which produce magnetism. The phenomena of permanent magnetism or cosmically induced magnetism are apparently due to electrostatic charges carried around by cosmic motion, in the universal ether field.

Since no one can hold an atom or molecule perfectly still---because it is in fantastic motion---all atoms and molecules carry currents producing magnetic fields. Since a magnetic field is the product of a current, no one can produce a magnetic field without electricity, moving through or along a conductor, or as electrostatic charges in local or cosmic motion.

Teslas Dynamic Theory of Gravity and MHD method of Spacial Electropulsion brought a cosmic crowning achievement to the works of Faraday, Wm. Thomson, J. J. Thomson, and Edmund Hall. [Summation of Teslas Dynamic Theory of Gravity; An excerpt from: Occult Ether Physics by William R. Lyne]


"It is, no doubt, possible that ... [electrical forces] may be discovered to be produced entirely by the action of contiguous particles of some intervening medium, and we have an analogy for this in the case of heat, where certain effects which follow the same laws are undoubtedly propagated from particle to particle. It might also be found that magnetic forces are propagated by means of a second medium, and the force of gravitation by means of a third." Thomson

What Kind of Fluid is a Quark-Gluon Plasma?

The hot soup of free quarks and gluons that existed in the very early universe, and a state of matter that physicists have been trying to re-create amid high-energy nuclear collisions, QGP is actually not a superfluid, as the original version of Update 681 erroneously suggested.

According to University of Washington physicist Laurence Yaffe (206-543-3902,, QGP is actually a normal, conducting fluid. It has viscosity, eliminating it from the list of superfluids. It is somewhat electrically resistive, precluding it from being a superconductor.


"either caloric or a universal ether; higher still perhaps are the causes of gravitation, and the imediate agents of attractions of all kinds... It seems therefore natural to believe that the analogy may be continued still further, until it rises into existences absolutely immaterial and spiritual. We know not but that thousands of spiritual worlds may exist unseen for ever by human eyes." Young
