A Matter of Gravity 
(c) Robert Neil Boyd

 [Question posed on a forum]: "If gravity really is a flow of aethers of some voluminosity, towards mass, how can mass accumulate this voluminous aether, while it empirically seems to disappear into nothing."

[R. N. Boyd]: The problem is easily resolved by the realization of the fact that, as the aether flux becomes subluminal, because it is slowed down by interactions with "normal matter", it will "self-organize" to become electrons. This sequence of the creation of electrons from aether fluxes, ab initio, was actually demonstrated experimentally by Nikola Tesla in the 1920s. Tesla obtained massive electrical power this way, quite by accident, as he was attempting to find the proper numbers of power pulses per second which would couple into the interstellar aether flux at resonance with the Earth's aether resonance rate. Tesla found that his Earth-pumping magnifying transmitters would operate at peak efficiencies, only when specific rates of pulsations were applied. He also noticed that the timing of the applied pulsations could produce either zero readings, or maximum readings of power, on the output side of his system.

This caused him to realize that there were incoming aether flux "waves" that were arriving with unfailing regularity. He realized that the instances where he had obtained zero output readings were those cases where his applied pulses were 180 degrees out of phase with the incoming aether waves, and of course, strongest when the pulses were applied in-phase with the incoming flux peaks. This situation provided evidence that aether flux from interstellar space is not a constant and smooth value, but varies with time. He realized that the Earth, as a massive whole, was modulating parts of the aether flux. He discovered a large number of various periodicities within the aether fluxes. He found the sources of all these various flux rates had several causes.

Space-sourced aether pulses entered the Earth at rates apparently related to mysterious processes occurring in the deepest reaches of outer space. Many such interstellar processes generated pulsations having nothing to do with Earth. Other rates had to do with processes in space we may never fully understand, representative of the properties of the interstellar medium itself. Yet, there existed a class of pulse rates definitely related to the nearby sun and to the Earth as a resistive mass. Tesla found that the Earth's rocky crust represented a resistance to the otherwise smooth passage of aether flux pulsations through interstellar space.

Tesla found that the resistance of the Earth's crust to the passage of aether, caused a local intensification of the aether flux to occur. He observed that a self-magnifying, self-collimating, property occurred when the aether fluxes encountered the massive body of the planet.

The so-resisted aether then self-focused into the locally resistive medium comprising the planet, resulting in locally intense aether flux bombardments in the resistive media, resulting in locally explosive emissions of showers of subatomic particles. One of the principle emissions was numbers of electrons. It appeared that electrons would spontaneously appear in the matter of the planetary body due to such resistivity to the aether flux. The resulting electrons acted as an aether "contaminant" which would choke off the normally smooth and unencumbered aether flows. In other words, the process of the conversion of aether particles, into electrons, due to the resistivity of the Earth's crust, acted to further retard the aether flows, in addition to the resistances inherent in the materials of the Earth's crust.

On the terrestrial scale, the results of these processes were observed to be enormous in scope. Tesla found, for example, that these processes were responsible for the molten core of the planet, and for the constant excesses of electrons which give the planet a constant net negative charge. Tesla also found a direct correlation between the local aether resistivity of the earth's crust and the local rate of lightning discharges, in certain areas which were already notable for locally prodigious lightning activities. And so on...

Anyway, when the proper pulse rates were found, Tesla had gigawatts of electricity to deal with in his Magnifying Transmitter equipment, rather unexpectedly. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

On the other side of the same coin, explosive discharges of electricity, approaching the ideal of the Dirac delta function, cause the dissociation of electrons into their component aether particles, which then stream away from the discharge site in superluminal ever-expanding shells. Similar processes are probably occurring all the time in the bodies of the stars, resulting in aether emanations from the various stellar bodies. It is possible that localized processes can also occur in interstellar space, which can also result in aether fluxes. Interstellar space is not at all a perfect vacuum.
