I know I promised to study and not to open another thread, but some further study led me to what I believe is the answer to unanswered questions posed in my previous thread 'Cosmic Rays, Photons, and the Magnetic Dipole". So I had to make one last attempt at explaining the theory. My dilemma has been knowing that an ocean of something existed in space, an Aether of some kind, but wasnt sure what. Eventually recognizing that neutrinos were a part of it but that there still seemed to be something else, an interaction of some kind. I think I have finally found the answer in the work of Henri Poincar'e and Lorentz-Fitzgerald. Specifically the theory of a Luminiferous Aether.
The key difficulty with the aether hypothesis arose from the juxtaposition of the two well-established theories of Newtonian dynamics and Maxwell's electromagnetism. Under a [B]Galilean transformation the equations of Newtonian dynamics are invariant, whereas those of electromagnetism are not. Basically this means that while physics should remain the same in non-accelerated experiments, light would not follow the same rules because it is traveling in the universal "aether frame"Pioneer Anomoly?However it wasnt until a last minute attempt at salvaging the Aether theory by the team of Lorentz-Fitzgerald and their contraction hypothesis that I believe the true nature was revealed. And that is that its a "LUMINIFEROUS AETHER" and that everything is affected by travel through the aether.
One more attempt at salvaging was Fizeau's 1851 confirmation of Fresnels predictions that " A medium with a refraction index n moving with a velocity v would INCREASE THE SPEED OF LIGHT traveling through the medium in the same direction. According to SNELLS LAW Movement adds a fraction of the velocity to the light. Dragging the Aether along with a portion of the mediums velocity.
It was Albert Einstein in 1905 who abandoned the (classical) aether and emphasized the significance of relativity of simultaneity to our understanding of space and time. He deduced the failure of absolute simultaneity from two stated assumptions.
the principle of relativity—the equivalence of inertial frames, such that the laws of physics apply equally in all inertial coordinate systems;
the constancy of the speed of light detected in empty space, independent of the relative motion of its source.
As for the concept of "In Vacua" per Einstein, I believe the experiments to be fatally flawed.
Removing the air or pressure from a space would not void it of the refracting aether or neutrinos,
and the MSW effect would alter the results.
The problem of mass increasing with velocity is caused by mass taking on energy as it moves through the aether and absorbing the same frequencies corresponding to the elemental composition of the mass. Or refracting others depending on composition.The presence of electrons in matter changes the energy levels of the propagation eigenstates of neutrinos due to charged current coherent forward scattering of the electron neutrinos (i.e., weak interactions). The coherent forward scattering is analogous to the electromagnetic process leading to the refractive index of light in a medium. This means that neutrinos in matter have a different effective mass than neutrinos in vacuum, and since neutrino oscillations depend upon the squared mass difference of the neutrinos, neutrino oscillations may be different in matter than they are in vacuum. With antineutrinos, the conceptual point is the same but the effective charge ('weak isospin') that the weak interaction couples to, has opposite sign.
Basically we live in a sea of leftover EM radiation from star nucleosynthesis and the neutrinos provide the bridge to the creation of matter, most recently organic matter. The Aether fills all space and the EM on our planet sits within it. Lights interaction with the aether is dependent on its frequencies heat signature or color temperature and the absorbitive or refractive qualities of the mass it bombards. A particle for each frequency of light.The absorption lines are like a grey scale of the variable temperatures involved in the creation of each element. The majority of which were created long ago in stars but interaction between neutrinos and the remaining EM radiation is what gives life to our planet.
The magnetic dipole effect I mentioned in my previous thread is also answered by this theory. As neutrinos have a dipole moment they would be able to transfer energies between mass and the aether via the MSW effect.
Thermodynamically speaking the processes in both space and on Earth are initiated by four things, Heat, Light, Dark (Refractive) and Cold.
I also believe light may be propagated via a transverse wave in two circular polarizations, rather than a longtitudal wave. Or 3 phases as related to color charge in quarks. These polarizations may be directly connected to the neutrino or atomic particles via the MSW effect. I may have a few things twisted around but this all ties in to my earlier discussions concerning GRB Baryonic/Non Baryonic matter interaction and my ideas of all radiation being ionizing.Newton's Opticks (1704) postulated an "Aethereal Medium" transmitting vibrations faster than light, by which light, when overtaken, is put into "Fits of easy Reflexion and easy Transmission", which caused refraction and diffraction. Newton believed that these vibrations were related to heat radiation.
The modern understanding is that heat radiation is, like light, electromagnetic radiation. However, Newton considered them to be two different phenomena. He believed heat vibrations to be excited "when a Ray of Light falls upon the Surface of any pellucid Body". He wrote, "I do not know what this Aether is", but that if it consists of particles then they must be "exceedingly smaller than those of Air, or even than those of Light.
The main thing is that our space is a transparent and refractive medium that even light resides within. And that the speed of light is determined by whether or not it is in the universal reference frame or not.
By directing this aetherial refraction, I believe we may be able to travel faster than light? If anamolies such as the Pioneer events are due to this acceleration, it would only seem practical that that energy could be harnessed and redirected.
