# The Aether as a Standing Wave

An aether of zero-point particles will have the overall behavior of a very high frequency standing wave. The reason for this is that the photons and neutrinos making up the aether will constantly bump into each other. Having similar momentum, they will bounce back and forth.

Unlike high energy photons and neutrinos, zero-point particles interact strongly with each other. With the photons being larger and rarer than the neutrinos, we get photons evenly spaced out with neutrinos filling the space between them. The overall pattern becomes that of a vibrating grid, with photons locked into position.

Constantly moving at the speed of light, everything vibrates furiously.

Assuming that the number of neutral particle quanta (neutrinos) are identical to that of charged quanta, we have 3 neutrinos for every photon. However, many photons have condensed into ordinary matter, so the ratio of neutrinos to zero-point photons can be assumed to be higher.

3 negative + 3 positive particle quanta = 1 photon

With photons being dielectric, we get that zero-point particles will both repel and attract each other. The neutrinos between the photons will therefore act in much the same way that neutrinos act in the vicinity of charged matter. There will be tiny high and low pressure areas constantly fluctuating in harmony with the overall vibration.

The result will be a resilient and self-repairing standing wave. Exactly as required to explain the double slit experiment in terms of standing waves.
