See, thro' this air, this ocean, and this earth, All matter quick, and bursting into birth. Above, how high progressive life may go! Around, how wide!

Vast chain of being, which from God began, Natures ethereal, human, angel, man, Beast, bird, fish, insect! In John Butt ed. The ether is not a fantastic creation of the speculative philosopher; it is as essential to us as the air we breathe.
The horrors of Vivisection have supplanted the solemnity, the thrilling fascination, of the old unetherized operation upon the human sufferer. The supposed astronomical proofs of the theory [of relativity], as cited and claimed by Einstein, do not exist.
He is a confusionist. The Einstein theory is a fallacy. The theory that ether does not exist, and that gravity is not a force but a property of space can only be described as a crazy vagary, a disgrace to our age. The work of Planck and Einstein proved that light behaved as particles in some ways and that the ether therefore was not needed for light to travel through a vacuum. When this was done, the ether was no longer useful and it was dropped with a glad cry. The ether has never been required since. It does not exist now; in fact, it never existed.

In Asimov on Physics , There is no instrument for measuring the pressure of the Ether, which is probably millions of times greater: it is altogether too uniform for direct apprehension. A deep-sea fish has probably no means of apprehending the existence of water, it is too uniformly immersed in it: and that is our condition in regard to the Ether. Through radio I look forward to a United States of the World. Radio is standardizing the peoples of the Earth, English will become the universal language because it is predominantly the language of the ether.
The most important aspect of radio is its sociological influence. To a body of infinite size there can be ascribed neither center nor boundary Just as we regard ourselves as at the center of that universally equidistant circle, which is the great horizon and the limit of our own encircling ethereal region, so doubtless the inhabitants of the moon believe themselves to be at the center of a great horizon that embraces this earth, the sun, and the stars, and is the boundary of the radii of their own horizon.
Thus the earth no more than any other world is at the center; moreover no points constitute determined celestial poles for our earth, just as she herself is not a definite and determined pole to any other point of the ether, or of the world-space; and the same is true for all other bodies.
From various points of view these may all be regarded either as centers, or as points on the circumference, as poles, or zeniths and so forth. Thus the earth is not in the center of the universe; it is central only to our own surrounding space.
To vary the compression of the muscle therefore, and so to swell and shrink it, there needs nothing but to change the consistency of the included ether. Thus may therefore the soul, by determining this ethereal animal spirit or wind into this or that nerve, perhaps with as much ease as air is moved in open spaces, cause all the motions we see in animals. In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful.

But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion. Sitewide search within all Today In Science History pages:. Melissa was introduced to steampunk several years ago by a former roommate who loved blasting Abney Park around the house. A chance meeting with the Steampunk Society of Nebraska at a con a few years later was the catalyst for what was eventually to become an obsession and the inspiration for a steampunk novel. One novel idea became a trilogy concept, then a series, and Melissa decided it was time to put fingers to keyboard and finally get writing.
It will instantly draw you into the struggle of a common merchant vessel becoming a true leader of the war effort. Let's fly the skies of war together aboard the Horizon.
