The ether space-time & cosmology program comprises several volumes designed to inform the physics community of the resurgence of the ether in modern science. The reality of the concept and its importance, which were denied at the beginning of the 20th century, aroused renewed interest by the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century.

Research undertaken during the last 20 years has confirmed the existence of physical properties within space, even where it is devoid of ordinary matter. In addition to the well known properties of permittivity, permeability and the ability to transmit electromagnetic waves, more recently other features have been associated with the concept of space. These include the Casimir Effect and a significant amount of energy. These properties attributed to the vacuum, which are universally recognized, strongly support the necessity of a substratum; however, the substratum as such has been most generally denied and its role ignored, such that it has not been investigated to the extent it ought to have been.

Ether space-time & cosmology proposes to fill this gap, and to restore to the ether the attention it deserves. One of the objectives of this series of books is to progressively disclose its properties. The introduction of the ether as a key actor in physical processes, will resolve a number of paradoxes in 20th century physics, which arose because it has been dismissed.

This third volume, like the previous ones, presents articles, written by experienced physicists, dealing with different aspects of the ether concept. Topics relating to quantum theory, dark energy and dark matter and review of the basic assumptions of relativity are addressed, among others. Ether Space-Time & Cosmology is a development of the Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory conferences, which began in 1988 in London, and which now take place in London, Moscow, Calcutta and Budapest. Details of these conferences, including names and addresses of contacts and sponsors, are given on the PIRT web site.

The program Ether Space-Time & Cosmology, to which this book belongs, comprises several volumes designed to inform the physics community of the resurgence of the ether in modern science. The reality of the concept and its importance were evident by the end of the 20th century and at the beginning of the 21st century: researches undertaken during the last 20 years have confirmed the existence of physical properties within space, even where it is devoid of ordinary matter. In addition to the well known properties of permittivity, permeability and the ability to transmit electromagnetic waves, other features have been more recently associated with the concept of space. These include the Casimir Effect and a significant amount of energy. The necessity of the ether is not questioned today, even by those who pretend to do so, but who don�t hesitate to attribute qualities to the vacuum. Ether theory plays a creative role even if given different names such as physical vacuum, fundamental plenum or cosmic substratum.

This second volume, as the first did, presents articles written by experienced physicists dealing with different aspects of the ether concept. One of the objectives of this series of books is to progressively disclose its properties. The introduction of the ether as a main actor in physical processes, will resolve a number of paradoxes in 20th century physics which arose because of its dismissal.

Ether Space-Time & Cosmology is a development of the Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory conferences, which began in 1988, in London, and which now take place in London, Moscow, Calcutta and Budapest.

Any Physics theory is stated via the basic communication system which, by the aid of a theorem can be proved as contradictory. Therefore at best, a ?least contradictory? Physics can be stated based on a claim for minimum contradictions which together with the theorem mentioned, constitute the core of this work. This Physics can be regarded as consequence of principles of thought; it is compatible, under certain simplifications, with Newtonian mechanics, relativity theory and QM. Finally this Physics is a Space-Time Quantum Mechanics which describes Minimum Contradictions Everything. On this basis, new explanations for various questions of physics can be given as the gravitation, the second thermodynamic law, the fractal behavior of matter systems and the interaction of the electromagnetic with the gravitational field. According to the spirit of this work, stochastic-quantum space-time is matter itself and any matter system behaves as if it had an ability to decide for its evolution. Thus, the basic property of ?Everything? is volition whose however basic dimension is logic; this is the reason why things even though acting under their volition they appear to have a considerable logical behavior. According to this point of view, biological organizations have the ability to decide for their evolution which is another approach to species evolution in general.

This work originates from various articles, which have been presented at various conferences or published in various journals from 1994 until now. It is derived from purely mental principles in contrast to theories which condense the experience which has been revealed. Thus, in a logically linked way, under certain simplifications, Newton?s gravitation law derives from mental principles and not from empirical observations as the falling apple is.

Researches undertaken during the last 20 years have confirmed that space possesses physical properties even where it is devoid of ordinary matter. In addition to the well known properties of permittivity, permeability and the ability to transmit electromagnetic waves, other features have been more recently associated with the nature of space. These include the Casimir Effect and a significant amount of energy. This medium, devoid of any trace of ordinary matter, is usually referred to as "Physical Vacuum", "Plenum" or "Cosmic Substratum" along with other appellations. Despite the veil of equivalent terms, these names obviously refer to the Ether, a medium conceived in antiquity, which received much attention from Science between the 17th and early 20th centuries. Today it is commonly understood throughout the academic community that Einstein excluded once and for all the ether from modern physics with his Special Theory of 1905. There is a widespread, unjustified assumption that ether is conceptually incompatible with Relativity, though Einstein developed an equivalent concept in the context of the General Theory and his later work. We may add that Einstein?s ether concept has inspired many modern physicists though others follow another direction of thought. The aim of this first volume of papers is to examine the different paths by which the modern ether concept has been developed and to highlight the part it plays in major departments of 21st C physics. The evidence for its existence is reviewed, and it is hoped, widespread misconceptions concerning ether are corrected. It is anticipated that the emerging modern concept of ether will play a fundamental part in the development of 21st C physical science. - Back cover
