"There are weighty arguments to be abdicated in favour of the ether hypothesis. To deny the ether is intimately to assume that empty space has no physical qualities whatever. The fundamental facts of mechanics do not harmonise with this view. According to the general theory of relativity space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists an ether. According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time. But this ether may not be thought of as endowed with the quality characteristic of ponderable media. The idea of motion [locomotion] may not be applied to it."

Summary

Below is a table that summarizes the structures and activities of ether that have been presented. Table 1 lists the various structures and activities of ether, and matches these with phenomena described by conventional theory. All forms of matter and energy are a result of distortions in the ether. Wherever we find distorted ether, we find energy. Whether it be a wave, a knot, a wrap or a twist, Energy = Ether Distortion. Now you can understand why energy can neither be created nor destroyed; the distortion will just transform into another type of structure.
