Particles vs Perfect Fluid

Since recorded history, our unenlightened scientists have been hypothesizing and subsequently discovering smaller and smaller magnitudes of particles. There was the atom, then various types of subatomic matter, and at one point something called gravitons which are either the smallest or one of the smallest hypothesized particles to date.

Matthew R. Edwards recently edited a collection of papers published by C. Roy Keys Inc. in a book called Pushing Gravity. James Evans wrote the first paper, Gravity in the Century of Light. According to Evans, Georges-Louis Le Sage (1724-1803) attempted in the 18th century to provide a mechanical explanation of gravity. In later parts of the book, we see that this explanation was embellished by others in the passage of time. However, the fundamental theory consists of a universe filled with very tiny particles moving in all directions which push upon material objects shadowing one another from the onslaught of the tiny particles. The result is movement of the material bodies toward one another, which we have called gravity. The pushing particles have been called "gravitons", bearing in mind that this term is not exclusive to Le Sage theories.

As smaller and smaller particles are hypothesized, we appear to be moving toward a concept of particles which are infinitely small. In nether theory (advanced ether theory) we postulate a perfect fluid. A perfect fluid is the same as having a fluid made of infinitely small particles. With such a fluid, we have merely arrived a little bit earlier at a point to which everyone else seems to be going. Such a fluid would be devoid of friction and would, therefore, have properties unlike those of fluids with which we are familiar.

The Le Sage gravity theory and those like it explain how gravity can act instantaneously or nearly so. Wave theories for gravity cannot account for the fact that gravity actually does act instantaneously. This instantaneous action, however, can be explained more easily in a way which does not require the existence of gravitons or any other faster-light-light particles. The following paragraphs shed more light on this subject.

Light versus Gravity and Charge

Relative to the fixed stars, the earth revolves about the sun once each year, passing through the zodiac at the approximate rate of one constellation each month, and moving with an orbital speed of about 66,700 miles per hour at a distance of about 93 million miles from the sun. If we lived upon the solar surface, we would see the reality of this movement. However, we live upon the surface of the earth, and what we see is the apparent movement of the sun around the earth, completing an entire revolution each year, passing through the zodiac at the rate of about one one constellation per month, and moving along its orbit at the rate of about one degree per day or one second of arc in every 24 seconds of time.

Light travels at a speed of about 186,000 miles per second. It requires about 500 seconds to reach us after it originates at the sun. In 500 seconds of time, the sun appears to move about 20.5 seconds of arc. Consequently, the position of the sun that we see is actually 20.5 arc seconds older than the correct position of the sun at the time we see it. This illusion happens because light has a finite speed and must travel through the ether for us to see it.

It has been discovered that gravity pulls in the exact direction of the sun at all times and that charge also acts from the exact direction of its source at all times. From these observations, most scientists have concluded that gravity and charge move at nearly infinite speed so that they act instantaneously. If either were a form of a wave, this would be true. A wave requires movement from its source to its receiver. However, neither gravity nor charge is a wave - nor is either caused by small fast particles such as gravitons.

A gravity funnel such as the sun is an inward flow like a river. All parts of the flow exist and create gravity (acceleration) at all points within itself for as long as the funnel (the sun) exists. Although the earth moves along an orbit where sunlight is perceived to be 20.5 arc seconds behind, the sun's position according to its gravity is precisely correct. There is no transmission time for gravity in the solar gravity funnel because the correct direction and the correct magnitude of solar gravity is there when the earth arrives. It has been there all the time, will continue to be there after the earth leaves, and will be waiting for the earth when it arrives at the same point in its orbit a year later. The same principle is the reason why charge appears to move at infinite speed. It was there even before its receiver arrived.
