Seems like we got rid of the aether just in time to come up with dark matter.
Light waves traverse an under dimensional lattice of what appears to us as nothing at all.
Gravity is a symptom of the power of our Over and under dimensional activities. Space and time are some kind of deformed extensions of these dimensional attributes.
That’s what we’re really hoping to see with these colliders and telescopes and other experiments. We want to see exactly where and in what form mass emerges from the under dimensional matrix, the particle suddenly being there where just before it wasn’t.
When We finally get to that, maybe then we can begin to penetrate our dimensional limits, finally get to somewhere new.
