The persistent idea that everything must be a thing continues to create problems in physics. It seems like I am a singularity myself, claiming the belief in a priori thing-ness is a misconception. No matter how close to reality a theory comes, it falls short of the ToE because of this belief.
It usually goes like this:
There is things we can observe empirically – check
There are smaller things inside big things – check
There are even smaller things inside small things – check
All things move in relation to each other – check
All things have inherent motion – check
Being is particular and massive – check
Motion is wavelike and vibrational – check
What we can observe is particular motion – check
Reality (a) is, and (b) changes – check
Where is reality – ?
When does it change – ?
So we have theories that tries to explain spacetime. We still don’t know how the particular motion of being is carried out, because we can’t seem to find in what media/background it moves. We can clearly observe that things propagate through space, but we have no idea (or too many ideas) what it propagates through. So we look for that “something”.
A popular concept of this media is aether. This is an attractive idea since it implies an existence of something that is spread out everywhere in space. Perhaps it is what constitutes space itself? The other day I found one of these aether theories, Superfluid Vacuum Theory (SVT). This is very close indeed. It could potentially serve as a ToE. Thing is, that goes for most other theories as well, even the soon to crash Standard Model. They are all right, but they have one flaw in common. All assume reality to be of being only. No one seems to know what’s coming in the be-coming of reality.
This comes as no surprise, because scientific method requires “being” as some thing to observe. It cannot investigate the unseen “change”, only what it is that is changed. We must realize the difference between; 1. Observing what changes 2. Observing what changes The first is looking at an object that has motion. The second is trying to see what causes the object to move. One is effect, the other cause. Can you realize this is not irrelevant?
Imagine finding what causes change. Wouldn’t that be great? Perhaps that is the mysterious graviton? Now, when you find it, before you go to Stockholm for the big prize, tell me if this cause of change is inherently still or if it moves. If it is still, tell me how it can cause anything to do anything. If it moves, tell me what makes it move. You see, the first is impossible and the second is infinite regress. Cancel the tickets my friend. You’re not going anywhere by doing this.
The aether we’re looking for is inside the being, not outside. It is the inherent motion that comes with every thing. It is everything inside every thing. It is the cause of vortices in the condensate/superfluid. It is the cause of rotation, orbits, waves and trajectories of things. It is the some of all things. You can never detect the some, only the thing. The thing is never a definite thing of itself. It is always some-thing. It is the formless within form, the Sunyata of Buddhist philosophy.
So to the question of what mediates the motion of things, the answer is – the inherent motion of things. We might just dig up the old Greeks and give the prize to them, or Nagarjuna. They had it right then already, but no condensed matter labs to prove their point. The point is – there is only points, and they cannot be observed. The point is causing contraction and expansion. The points are what makes up the universe. They cause energy, as negative and positive, to travel from point to point creating effects as mass, waves, particles, fluids, gas, tissue etc. There are no objects pushing each other around, only subjective values of contraction/expansion causing effects of space and time as well as “motion”. No thing moves about, but something always moves about. That is everything.
Aether is a valid concept, but it is not spread out everywhere.
The aether is the “with” within every thing.
Everything is exactly what it looks like, but the other way round.
We are the outside of inside the universe.
It starts a singularity and it grows singularities.
Where is the point of space.
When is the change of point value in time.
Motion is not in a superfluid.
Motion is superfluid.
Universe is an ensamble of superfluid singularities generating growth in free space.
