ADDENDUM TO DISCOURSE NO. 5
THE AETHER IN DETAIL
Copyright © Harold Aspden, 2001, 2003
Having, as it were, seemingly immersed you in a sea of aether,
but in a pictorial sense, I now seek to introduce the aether in detail, not
within these web pages, which I now want to confine to the technological
aspects of ENERGY SCIENCE, but by pointing the way forward via my related web
to locations where the theory of the aether is to be found.
INTRODUCTIONI wrote the 2001 version of this web page some
three years after entering DISCOURSE No. 5 on the web site and at a time when I
had begun to bring my publications into PDF (Portable Document Format) form
which can be read by Acrobat Reader. Accordingly, I can now rely on easy
reference to the original published forms of what I have written over the years
since I began my investigations into the detailed form of the aether.
appropriate starting point, by reference to that separate web site where I
address the physics theme, is to draw attention to the book I wrote in 1996
entitled 'Aether Science Papers', pointing out that my aether theory was
the subject of an evolving sequence of publications, namely 'The Theory of
Gravitation' (1960), 'The Theory of Gravitation', 2nd Edition (1966),
'Physics without Einstein' (1969), 'Modern Aether Science' (1972),
'Gravitation' (1975), and 'Physics Unified' (1980).
in the years following that 1980 period that I found my scientific papers on the
subject were less likely to be rejected for publication by so-called 'peer
review' and so my published work of the 1980s is in the regular scientific
periodical paper form. Evenso, lost as those papers are in the academic jungle
of science on record in university libraries, it seems worthwhile to provide
this Internet information.
'Aether Science Papers' was published
in 1996, essentially because I had declared the intention to provide that sequel
on the back cover of my 1972 book 'Modern Aether Science'. I think it
appropriate, therefore, to refer now to what I said on the last page of that
work and refer also to its back cover summary.
I invite you to browse
through these items, taking note of what I say about the 'supergraviton'. In
reading that again in this year 2001, I see that in 1996 I promised a
'technological sequel' to that work ('Aether Science Papers'). These web
pages will evolve into that 'sequel'. Meanwhile, I urge you to delve into that
book and build an understanding of the aether by following the reference leads.
Hopefully you will then share my enthusiasm for the science that this insight
into the aether affords and, possibly, come to share in the onward effort to
seek out the best way of tapping into the vast energy resources of that
I will aim to compile that 'technological sequel' by building on
the nucleus of Energy Science Reports that I will incorporate into my
TECHNOLOGY section of these web pages, as well as in the Bibliographic section
of my site www.aspden.org. It will evolve in stages as I compile, possibly in
book form, an updated account of what is discussed in the existing
