Aether: The Physicalists' God
by Laurent R. Duchesne
Relativity is an aether theory. Everything is related through empty space. That everything exists in a single field, a matrix, is the basis, the foundation of the General Theory of Relativity. It is a philosophical necessity, if not, how could anyone explain why we have inertia, gravity, or action-at-a-distance?

Einstein's gravitational aether is the seat to an all relating process which he called spacetime.

The reason that in spacetime objects must be related is because it all comes from a single entity, reality is one single process. All inertial frames within the observable universe are related by the aether, through the aether. The aether is one, and because of that, the universe is also one. It is a single entity, yet contains everything that exists in spacetime.

Aether is the empty space in which the universe sits.

About the author:

Laurent was born on Oct. 10 of 1955, and studied at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. Now spends most of his time in MD, USA.

By age 8, Laurent was already wondering about why would a cup stick to his face as he tried to suck the air out. Later, he learned about magnetism, gravity and inertia as he continued to wonder if, besides atmospheric pressure, there was some unknown force at work. He remembers making needles stand up without touching them by using a magnet, then wondering how could that be? After learning about the EPR experiments he started inquiring about oneness and how everything seemed to be connected.

It has been a journey going from J.L.Borges' "The Garden of Bifurcating Paths" to Everett's Many-worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. From the collective behavior of sardine schools and J. Cortazar's eels in "Prose from the Observatory" to Bose-Einstein condensates. From the relativity demonstrated by the 'twins paradox' thought experiment to the non-locality uncovered by the EPR (Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen) experiment. After thoroughly studying the physics of Nature, Laurent is convinced that the Aether is the physical but immaterial substance from which the universe emerged.
