Earth is a giant capacitor. This is true regardless of its internal makeup, but it's…
The aether appears to be having a come back in theoretical physics. In this recent paper, Musa D. Abdullah shows that a field model of the aether will greatly simplify things related to space, light and forces that act at a distance.
His reasoning is remarkably similar to my own, and his conclusions are pretty much the same. The main difference is that Musa D. Abdullah sees the aether as a field while I model it as a mix of very low energy photons and neutrinos.
Of particular note is his conclusion regarding gravity. He too sees it as a manifestation of an imbalance in the electric force, with electric repulsion being slightly less strong than attraction. He arrives at this conclusion through the application of formulas, while I arrive at this same conclusion through logical argument.
Once again, we see that the theory proposed in my book can be backed up with mathematical formulas.
