Has quantum aether been disproved? Really?
« on: 22/08/2010 22:09:57 »
The currently known elementary states of matter are bose (einstein condensation), earth (solid), water (liquid), wind (gas), fire (plasma), and aether (dark matter). 

How exactly is quantum aether disproved?

Is Dark Matter considered to be "aether" - I've not heard it described as such before.

the luminiferous ether wasn't exactly disproved - but michelson and morley and many others (without the perceived flaws in MM) have failed to detect it.  and einstein's work removes the last need for an all pervasive ether - it may come back again, who knows. 

btw it's difficult to show something doesnt exist when the thing posited is universal and non-interacting

Ha Ha! Very good point.  Thank God logic for Occam's Razor, eh!

Few have - Earth and water and wind and plasma and bose consist of fluent electromagnetic particles – The aether wind consists of quantum particles. 

the luminiferous ether wasn't exactly disproved - but michelson and morley and many others (without the perceived flaws in MM) have failed to detect it.  and einstein's work removes the last need for an all pervasive ether – who knows.

I know - that the failure of warp to predict the accelerated rotation of galaxies - and the expansion of the universe - and the slowed course of pioneering spacecraft – are all simply answered by fluent space. 

Occam’s razor says spacetime aether is also a state of fluent particles - and the relative viscosity of spacetime aether is equivalent to hubble by the speed of light constant. 

What does disproving luminiferous have to do with disproving dark?
