our galaxy is swimming in a superfluid sea
dark matter is smooth, distributed more evenly throughout space than we thought
the empty vacuum of space … is filled with 'stuff'
According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there would be no propagation of light
the state of the [ether] is at every place determined by connections with the matter and the state of the ether in neighbouring places
Since 1954, when this passage was written, I have come to support wholeheartedly an hypothesis proposed by Bohm and Vigier.According to this hypothesis, the random perturbations to which the particle would be constantly subjected, and which would have the probability of presence in terms of [the wave-function wave], arise from the interaction of the particle with a “subquantic medium” which escapes our observation and is entirely chaotic, and which is everywhere present in what we call “empty space”.
When in 1923-1924 I had my first ideas about Wave Mechanics I was looking for a truly concrete physical image, valid for all particles, of the wave and particle coexistence discovered by Albert Einstein in his "Theory of light quanta". I had no doubt whatsoever about the physical reality of waves and particles.any particle, even isolated, has to be imagined as in continuous “energetic contact” with a hidden mediumFor me, the particle, precisely located in space at every instant, forms on the v wave a small region of high energy concentration, which may be likened in a first approximation, to a moving singularity.the particle is defined as a very small region of the wave
