The geometry of concentric spherical shells helps us to visualize this - as the aether flows into what is a tapered volume it must be speeding up to keep the flux the same.  So by applying Bernoulli’s Principle we can know that the aether is speeding up as it approaches and as it enters the absorbing sphere.  This speeding up creates lesser aether pressure.  Lesser aether pressure means higher gravity.  Note that the speeding up can also be looked at as the stretching of space.  This stretching of space is another way to interpret gravity.

Now imagine a spinning astronomical object like the Sun or Saturn.  For here we find that Bernoulli’s Principle also explains why spiral galaxies, solar systems and the rings around planets like Saturn are so flat!  This is because the aether rotates with any spinning object that is absorbing it.  It forms a whirlpool as it is getting absorbed.  And the aether is moving the fastest at the equatorial plane of these spinning objects.  So from Bernoulli’s Principle we know that faster motion with constant flux means lesser pressure.  So a spinning astronomical object absorbing aether will have a valley of lesser aether pressure at its equatorial plane.  This valley of lesser aether pressure is actually a valley of stronger gravity.  Matter objects will come to rest in this valley.  Objects that try to move above the valley will get forced back down.  Objects that try to move below the valley will get forced back up.  So this is not rocket science anymore - in fact the simplicity is quite beautiful.  The dismissal of the aether hid this simplicity from us.  But now it is time to take it back again and embrace it.

AETHER AND THE CORIOLIS EFFECT

There are two components to the Coriolis effect - one from latitude and one from altitude.  Both components come from variation in the aether whirlpool surrounding the Earth.  The aether whirlpool is fastest from west to east at the Earth’s equator and this west to east velocity diminishes with latitude.  But at the same time the whirlpool speed diminishes with altitude.  Each of these variations contributes to the Coriolis effect in its own way.  I will describe the latitude variation first.

The west to east speed of the aether whirlpool at the Earth’s equator matches the speed of the Earth’s surface at the equator, or approximately 1040 mph.  As one moves away from the equator either north or south, the west to east speed diminishes with the cosine of the latitude.  This affects weather systems, namely hurricanes.

In the northern hemisphere, the eastward speed of the aether is greater to the south and less to the north.  This creates more eastward force to the south and less eastward force to the north.  This makes weather systems in the northern hemisphere move in a counter clockwise direction.

In the southern hemisphere, the eastward speed of the aether is greater to the north and less to the south.  This creates more eastward force to the north and less eastward force to the south.  This makes weather systems in the southern hemisphere move in a clockwise direction.  This is the gravitational pull of the aether doing this.  The air molecules are getting forced along by the aether as it rotates with the Earth.

The illustration that follows shows how the aether whirlpool creates the Coriolis effect.

THE RUNAWAY TRAIN

In the 1800’s scientists believed that the aether was the medium for light to travel. They also believed that the aether was the medium for magnetism and gravity. These scientists were on the right path and they were close to discovering the truth, until the failure of the Michelson-Morely experiments and other similar experiments to detect the aether put an end to it all. And once Einstein’s equations were able to explain gravity without the aether the deal was done – the aether was abandoned. Now many of today’s scientists squander their time away working with the empty space model, with their explanations for gravity becoming more and more obscure and further and further from the truth. In fact, this empty space model is eerily reminiscent of Ptolemy’s geocentric model that was propounded for centuries. Something simple must come along and derail this runaway train of nothingness, and I believe the Twichell Theory of Gravitation is just simple enough to do it.

THE TWICHELL THEORY OF GRAVITATION

The Twichell Theory of Gravitation was born out of my vision of the biological Universe. In my vision I saw the "Tree of Life". Our Milky Way was like a branch in this tree. But it wasn’t a branch it was more like the tip of a root - a root that was grinding its way through the soil of the Universe – the aether. The matter atoms were part of the tree and the aether was the soil. I envisioned that like any living thing, the matter atoms needed nutrition, and to get it they absorbed the aether. Now this is very philosophical, and whether or not this vision is even correct is almost inconsequential - because it has led to a great theory. One that has explained every gravitational phenomenon I have come across since I began to write about it.

The essence of The Twichell Theory of Gravitation is that matter objects "absorb" aether and in doing so they create gravity. The theory states that the Michelson-Morely experiments failed because the aether moves "with" the spinning Earth from west to east, with the only relative motion being down as the aether gets sucked into the Earth. The theory relies quite heavily upon Bernoulli’s Principle. The following illustration shows the nested spirals in the aether that Michelson and Morely were unaware of.

Below is an article written by Twichell for the Extraordinary Science and Technology Magazine - Apr/May/June 2015 Issue.  The article is also available at www.sciencetosage.com.

AETHER AND BERNOULLI

At the very heart of the Twichell Theory of Gravitation sits Bernoulli’s Principle, from the world of fluid dynamics. In fact it is Bernoulli’s Principle that really gives the aether gravity theory an amazing boost, very likely making it superior to any other gravitational theory.

Gravitational Lensing was already discussed – it can be reduced down to Snell’s law if the aether model is applied.  So this is not a smoking gun.

Rotational Frame Dragging states that light traveling in the direction of rotation of a massive object will move past the object faster than light moving against the rotation.  With the aether whirlpool model this is a no-brainer.

Gravitational Time Delay states that light takes longer to get to where it’s going because it takes a longer route.  Well the obviousness of this statement is painful.  Yet once again this is Einstein’s way of describing the aether whirlpool – not rocket science.

Gravitational Redshift states that the electromagnetic waves leaving a gravitational source redshift.  Looked at another way the waves lose their frequency.  This is because the energy of an electromagnetic wave is essentially equivalent to its frequency.  So the waves lose some energy when escaping gravity – not a smoking gun.

Static Mass Increase states that an increase in the inertia of large astronomical objects is seen when other similar objects are nearby.  The reason academic empty space believers find this to be complex is that they think every ounce of gravity is contained within the gravitational source – because they don’t know about the whirlpool of aether rotating around the absorbing object, or the force that it contains.  So when two galaxies interact at their outer limits scientists scratch their heads and propose overly complex ideas like “Static Mass Increase”, when all that is happening is an interaction between the two aether whirlpools.

Warping of Spacetime states that Einstein wanted to keep his cake, yet he wanted to eat it too.  Einstein propounded the empty space model, yet out of the other side of his mouth he said that space warps.  How can you warp something that isn’t there?  Well you can’t.  So by proposing this Einstein was unwittingly admitting that the empty space model was invalid.  And as I described previously the time warping experiments are based upon the incorrect assumption that Cesium atomic clocks operate the same in all gravitational and kinematic environments.  So to set the record straight, the warping of space is true – this is the aether whirlpool.

AETHER INSIDE THE EARTH

The flux of aether enters the Earth to feed the absorbing matter.  The older matter resides toward the core.  The matter density increases inside the Earth, but the aether density decreases.  There are three reasons for the decrease in aether density.  The first reason is that the aether is getting absorbed.  The second reason is that the aether is speeding up to get through all the atoms.  And the third reason is that the aether is speeding up because it is constantly moving into a smaller geometrical sphere.  The latter two reasons come from Bernoulli’s Principle.  Note that the Zero Point Energy scientists need to be aware that the aether is coursing downward through their vacuums as it enters the Earth.

As the aether gets sucked into the Earth, the tiny aether particles move in massive numbers between the relatively vast gaps separating the nuclei of the matter atoms.  Light entering the Earth gets cancelled through destructive interference, but the gravitational flow of the aether continues.  A single aether particle will adopt the spin of any wave and contribute to the wave as the particle moves through the wave into the Earth.  This is the secret to understanding aether gravity.

Although electromagnetic waves are cancelled when entering the Earth, the magnetic field of the Earth is large enough to extend from the core to the end of the Earth’s magnetosphere.  This magnetic field represents vortices in the aether or twisting of the aether, as opposed to the flowing and stretching of aether that is gravity.  The two are seemingly inseparable as the Earth’s aether absorbing vortex or outer core seems to be the driving force of the electro-dynamo.

We also need to pay attention to the direction of aether flow inside the Earth.  It flows straight in at the poles, but underneath the equator it flows inside the Earth in the shape of the whirlpool.  As this whirlpool forces the matter of the Earth along with it, this creates the shearing force of plate tectonics, as well as the friction, heat and volcanic activity associated with it.  For the inner layers of the Earth are moving west to east faster than the surface of the Earth!

We notice another interesting phenomenon when we consider the Earth’s solid inner core.  For how can there possibly be a solid inner core when it is supposedly surrounded by a hot liquid magma outer core?  Well the aether gravity model actually provides us with a hypothesis for this.  Since the aether is the source of heat transfer, the solid inner core could indicate that the aether isn’t reaching the inner core!  And if there is no aether there can be no light - which is a form of a black hole!  And because the mass phenomenon is related to the rate of aether absorption, this would mean the inner core of the Earth is massless!  So this is a rather large hypothesis.

I realized it was the geometry of a spherical object absorbing aether that could explain the solid inner core of the Earth.  Our spherical Earth contains a volume of protons and neutrons absorbing aether, where the volume is given as 4/3 ▪R3.  But the aether can only enter through the surface area, which is given by 4 ▪R2, which is an entire factor of R less than the volume.  So what happens is that the volume requires more aether than can be provided through the surface area, so not enough aether can make it to the center.  This creates an aether bubble at the inner core.

Now let’s consider the portion of the Coriolis effect related to altitude.  For as a plane rises up above the Earth it is entering not only a portion of the aether that contains less gravity because of its altitude, but also a portion of the aether whirlpool that is not spinning as fast as the whirlpool at ground level beneath it.  It is this lessening of the west to east force of the aether whirlpool at altitude that creates the altitude portion of the Coriolis effect.  In our example the rising plane will experience what seems like a westward force in the absence of the stronger eastward force below.

As the plane rises there is also a smaller force on the plane toward the nearest pole.  This is because of the stronger west to east force of gravity toward the Earth’s equator.  It can be confusing unless you reverse it and imagine a craft entering the Earth’s gravitational field, in which case the entering craft is pulled eastward and toward the equator.  So to understand the Coriolis effect is simply to understand that these forces reverse when the craft leaves the field.  This is why the Coriolis effect is sometimes considered a “fictional” force, or the “appearance” of a force when viewed from within the rotating reference frame of the Earth, but really it is proof of the lessening speed and lessening force of the aether whirlpool as one gains altitude.

AETHER AND GRAVITATIONAL LENSING

The importance of having a theory built upon strong fundamentals cannot be overstressed, and the Twichell Theory of Gravitation has just that.  When the correct model is applied physical phenomenon commonly considered as complex suddenly become trivial.  This happens again and again with this theory.  And in this example, it happens with gravitational lensing.

With the theory of aether gravity, gravitational lensing can be explained through the simple application of Snell’s law, which states that the direction of light will bend toward the normal when entering a medium where the speed of light is slower.  Well with the aether gravity model, the speed of light is slower closer to a large source of gravitation because the aether density is less.  This causes the light to bend toward the normal, or toward the source of gravity.

Now of course rather than entering a discrete new medium, like is commonly seen in association with Snell’s law, in this case there exists a gradual change in the medium.  So the light will bend gradually toward the normal.  Now I should point out that we should expect the lensing to be stronger near an equatorial plane, since this is where the aether is stretched the most.  The illustration that follows shows two discrete aether mediums for the sake of simplification.

Not only does this geometry explain the inner core, but curiously it fits right in with my vision of the biological Universe, or the Tree of Life.  Since now we are looking at a deadwood core, or the xylem of the Tree of Life.  The xylem is the part of the tree that brings the water and nutrients from the soil up to the rest of the tree, found at the center where the dead hollow cells can transmit the water.  I wondered about this inner core and how the atoms must be starved for aether, yet I also believe the smaller sub-aether reaches the inner core.  I also hypothesized about the possibility of Moon Birth when a massive gravity wave or a giant electromagnetic tug from the Sun could force the inner core out through a volcanic hotspot, recycling the old dead inner core into a new branch in the Tree of Life, or a moon.  More on this amazing theory can be found in my book.

AETHER AND SUPERNOVAE

Now that I have described the aether bubble that may form at the core of spherical aether absorbing objects, we can hypothesize that this is the source of the supernova.  For with the aether bubble notion we can simply imagine that the aether bubble can pop, creating an implosion that is followed by an explosion, or supernova.

Compared to the Earth, we can imagine a star having an even larger bubble in the aether at its core.  This inner core of the star would contain a strange dense variation of matter vacant of surrounding aether.  Protons and neutrons with no surrounding aether to radiate is an exotic state for matter, yet if these nuclei are indeed compacted and spherical then with the aether missing the space between the spheres would be empty, which would mean a vacuum, and we know that nature abhors a vacuum (sub-aether may reach inside these vacuums).  So because the aether is extremely tiny, pervasive, dense, strong, fibrous and supportive, lack of aether would mean lack of support.  So the hypothesis states that the surrounding matter and space can cause this aether bubble to pop or implode, leaving a super dense neutron star spinning in its wake, followed by the supernova.

There is also something scientists call “electron degeneracy” which supports my hypothesis.  Electron degeneracy is where the electrons collapse down to their associative nuclei inside the cores of stars.  Well since I knew that an electron was merely the pole of the proton magnet, and I knew that the proton magnet was merely a vortex in the aether, then a situation with no electrons matched a situation with no aether - because if the aether is all gone it is impossible for the proton to generate any electrons.  So this was another clue that my aether bubble hypothesis was correct.

So although the concept of an imploding aether bubble is simple, the situation is actually quite complex when all the variables are considered.  Firstly, the aether density does not suddenly go to zero at the inner core, but rather there is a decline in aether density along the radius of the star.  The deeper into the star you get the denser the matter becomes but the less dense the aether becomes.  Matter and aether share space.  But the denser matter toward the core of the star requires more aether, so right away we see the aether density inside the star cannot be diminishing linearly.

There are also variables that come from outside the star as well.  For instance, the rate at which the star grows is a factor of the density of the hydrogen cloud it is growing in, and this rate can control the life of the star.  A star that grows too fast will go supernova before a star that grows slowly.  And the density of the aether surrounding the star is not always a given.  For the aether density surrounding the star is related to the size of the star itself and how much it is stretching space.  A large star stretches space more and has a lesser aether density coming into it.  And distance from the core of a galaxy is another variable, since closer to a galactic core we have more stretched space or lesser aether density.  And other variables exist such as gravitational waves and interactions with other nearby stars that can burst the bubble of a star.  And we can even entertain more complexities from the concept of the biological Universe, such as the sex of the star, or the sacrifice of the star to the birth of the cell belonging to the larger biological system.  Academic scientists call these supernovae “star deaths”, but one look at a planetary nebula (another misnomer) and one can plainly see this is a birth, or a cell division.

So even with the simplistic aether model we quickly run into many complexities when using it to explain supernovae.  But the model strangely provides unique insights which could never be seen using the empty space model.  For the aether bubble provides the impetus for a gravitational collapse.  Clearly when compared against the empty space model the aether gravity full space model is the superior model.

AETHER AND BLACK HOLES

The Twichell Theory of Gravitation states there are two types of black holes.  There is the traditional type, and there is the new type that I just described that may exist inside planets and stars, and the centers of galaxies as well.  The new type is on the “inside” of an astronomical object, where it is black simply because the aether cannot reach the core.  And because the absorption of aether creates the mass phenomenon, these inner black holes are massless.  There may even be a third type of black hole associated with the gravitational collapse that precedes the supernova.  But here I discuss what I consider to be the traditional type of black hole, where it is black on the outside.

Regarding the “traditional” black hole - academic scientists have been bending over backwards for years trying to understand them.  These scientists struggle to understand black holes because they are using the empty space model.  How can you have a hole in nothing?  So the hypocrisy is laughable when academic scientists attempt to explain a hole in empty space.  But with the aether gravity full space model the black hole is easy to explain.

To begin, we first need a gravitational source with a very long lifetime - one that has grown so massive that it is able to create the black hole.  Then applying our full space model we can know that the Schwarzchild radius is simply the point where the aether particles get stretched so far apart that they can no longer transmit their vibration unto the next aether particle.  And since space is stretched more along an equatorial plane we should expect the blackness to extend further along this plane as well.

Now because that was so easy, I will go one step further and hypothesize about the physics of the vibration between aether particles, so that we can know more about what is going on at the Schwarzchild radius.  For is it really as simple as the aether particles no longer touching?  For what does touching mean if there is no friction to transfer spin?  And how can there be friction if the aether particle is the smallest particle?  There must be particles even smaller than aether particles.  I call them sub-aether particles.  So in the upcoming volume of my manuscript tentatively entitled Sub-Aether Physics I plan to describe magnetic vortices in the sub-aether that interconnect the particles of aether.  This is really just an extension of my current theory that proton aether vortices connect atoms.  So at the Schwarzchild radius what I am hypothesizing is that the sub-aether vortices that connect the aether particles get stretched to the point where they break.  This line of thinking leads me to predict additional nested Schwarzchild radii inside of the Schwarzchild radius - one for each sub-layer of space below the aether layer.  So what I am stating is that black holes could be nested just like everything else.  Black may be a relative term based upon one’s location and ability to detect vibrations in the controlling layer of space.

AETHER AND ITS DESTINATION

With all of the aether absorption I have been describing, one might be wondering where the aether goes once it is absorbed.  Well this is an excellent question.  And the answer is not even important to the current model.  However understanding more is always important so allow me to guess or hypothesize about where the aether goes.

For our first guess, we can go back to the philosophical concept that began the entire theory – The Tree of Life.  So with the tree concept, the aether is essentially going back in time into the Tree of Life - filling in the blanks that we cannot see in the Cosmic Web.  Stretched to frequencies that are far too high for us to see or detect.  If our solar system is like a tiny atom inside of this tree, then seeing the tree from our tiny point of reference is nearly impossible.

Along with this we can hypothesize that the destination for the aether may be the neutrons.  For deeper into the Earth there are a lot of neutrons or isotopes of the elements.  These neutrons could be considered “births”, where the source of birth began with the absorption of the surrounding aether.

We can also look to the law of conservation of energy.  We can know that the aether is not being destroyed, just converted.  So the result of the conversion could be the light and magnetism that emanates from the absorbing protons.  For as tiny proton sized supernovae absorb aether, implode, explode and repeat, their associative resonating frequencies could represent the frequency of their implosions and explosions of the aether.  And their magnetic field could be related to the spin they take on after the implosion, like tiny neutron stars.  And this spin is needed to create the magnetic vortex in the aether that will connect the proton to the next proton in the next atom.  Without this connectivity there can be no atomic bonding!  And we can never forget that atoms are alive since they connect to form molecules, and the molecules connect to form cells, and cells connect to form tissues and organs, and these form what we call intelligent life.  In my opinion the intelligence must exist at the tiny level in order to make all of this happen.

And the question remains – where does the aether come from?  Does it come from the combination or networking of the even tinier sub-aether?  Are these sub-aether particles to the aether as aether is to matter?  I believe the fractal design of nature tells us it must be so.  So if layers of space like this exist then the source of the aether layer resides in the existence of the sub-layers.  And the existence of this seemingly infinite Universe or Multiverse fractal transcends science and philosophy and arises from Almighty God.

AETHER AND THE FINAL EXPERIMENT

Those interested in contributing to my experiment that will finally prove the existence of the aether can contact me through my website at www.miketwichell.com.

AETHER AND THE PIONEER ANOMALY

Before reaching the end of their missions, when the Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 unmanned spacecrafts reached the distant reaches of our solar system they were slowing down more than was expected.  This is known as the Pioneer anomaly, and it is another phenomenon that is easily explained with the aether gravity model.

Firstly, allow me to describe the request and response ranging technique that was used to determine the distances to the Pioneer spacecrafts.  A range request signal was sent from the Earth to the spacecraft.  When the spacecraft received the request signal it would emit the response signal.  When the response signal was received here on Earth, the distance to the spacecraft was computed by dividing the round trip time by two and then multiplying by the speed of light.  Any motion of the Earth and spacecrafts while the signals were in flight was factored into the distance as well.  However, let me point out here that the “assumption” that the speed of light is constant is wrong.

For the aether density will increase as the distance from any gravitational object increases.  In this case the gravitational object is the Sun.  Thusly we can expect that when these anomalies grew large enough to be noticed the Pioneer spacecrafts were in a denser aether environment.  The speed of light is faster in these remote portions of our solar system because the aether is denser.  And because the speed of light is faster, the response message will come back sooner than expected and the distance to the spacecraft will be calculated as being less.  Thusly explaining what is called the “Pioneer anomaly”.

AETHER AND TIME DILATION

In an experiment by Hafele and Keating in 1971, commercial jet airliners were armed with Cesium atomic clocks and flown both eastward and westward around the Earth.  At the end of the flights the clocks were compared with a ground clock.  The results were meant to prove the validity of Einstein’s special and general relativity theories.

Now although splitting nanoseconds over the course of days is a difficult thing to attempt, and even though the results were supposedly “massaged” so that they would match the predicted results, the results are not what I am disputing – it is the interpretation of the results that I am disputing!

Hafele and Keating interpreted the results to mean that time was indeed warping!  They made this mistake because they made the “assumption” that Cesium atomic clocks operate exactly the same in all gravitational and kinematic environments.  This was their stake in the sand.  Sadly, this was a mistake.

Time does not warp - it is simply that Cesium atomic clocks do not operate the same in all gravitational and kinematic environments.  Gravity and motion slow clocks not because of any sort of weird science fiction “time dilation”, they slow clocks because gravity and motion affect the aether density inside the clocks.  For as the tiny aether particles rush between the relatively massive gaps between the Cesium atoms, the aether particles speed up because of Bernoulli’s Principle.  And when the aether speeds up, its density becomes less.  And when the aether density becomes less, the Cesium atoms have access to less aether so they resonate slower.  And the lesser aether density also makes it so the vibrations from the Cesium atoms travel slower.  And once this happens the clock is running slower.  This is pure physics of the aether and fluid dynamics applied to the aether.  There is no strange time dilation going on.

AETHER AND GENERAL RELATIVITY

The dismissal of the aether has led to over 100 years of futility for the scientific world.  And the hypocrisy is thick when general relativity shows that light is affected by gravity, yet the believers of the empty space model insist that emitted photons are massless.  So allow me to briefly point out here that all the smoking guns of general relativity can easily be explained with my simple aether gravity model.

 Aether is absorbed by matter, creating gravity
 Aether whirlpools form when matter spins
 Aether whirlpools are nested galaxy/star/planet/proton
 Aether pressure variation flattens spiral galaxies, solar systems and Saturn’s rings
 Aether density variation and Snell’s law explain gravitational lensing
 Aether density variation explains the Pioneer anomaly
 Aether density variation explains the Allais effect
 Aether density variation explains black holes
 Aether absorption geometry explains supernovae
 Aether manipulation can be used to create anti-gravity
 Aether whirlpool variation explains the Coriolis effect
 Aether whirlpool variation explains plate tectonics
 Aether creates magnetism and electricity with vortices
 Aether proton vortices are the source of magnetism and atomic bonding
 Aether absorption drives the inner/outer core mechanism of the Earth
 Aether gravity explains the smoking guns of general and special relativity.

Bernoulli’s Principle describes the inverse relationship between speed and pressure.  For instance, fluid moving through a tapered portion of a pipe will speed up.  As it speeds up, the pressure in the tapered portion of the pipe actually becomes lower.  Essentially what is happening is that the flux through the pipe must remain constant, so in order to keep the flux constant the water molecules must speed up through the tapered portion of the pipe.  The same phenomenon applies with air molecules over the wing of a plane.  To get over the upper curved portion of the wing in the same amount of time the particles above the wing must separate and speed up.  This creates less pressure above the wing which creates the lift.  This is Bernoulli’s Principle at work.We can apply these same principles of fluid dynamics to the aether.  For example, imagine the aether pouring into a spherical astronomical object.  For simplicity first imagine a non-spinning object such as our Moon.  Now one of the keys to Bernoulli’s Principle is that the flux must remain constant.  So with our example sphere or Moon, the entire sphere is absorbing aether and the inward flux of aether into it must remain constant across its entire surface area.  The illustration that follows shows two concentric shells surrounding a non-spinning gravitational source that is absorbing aether.
