The Universe has a Crystalline Nature
In the macro human-scale world we work with what our eyes can see, and with what the devices we build can do to augment what we see. Our eyes are a 43 millimeter focal length equivalent, with a 118 degree field of view. We tend to see the person at the party, and not the tiny mole on her shoulder. We take pictures of birthday parties, but usually not the drip of wax on the candle. For the most part, we ignore the small stuff in life.
So it is with energy observation. We observe the electrical charge built-up by the vortex motion of zillions of aether dipole moments, but not a singular moment of any corpuscle of the aether. It’s too small for either our eyes or our equipment.
So, how does the aforegoing make a depiction of the universe as being defined by crystallography? The answer is, damned near everything is a crystal. The periodic table has atomic number and mass and such, but it also has a crystallographic annotation as well. When atoms combine singly or with other types of atoms in order to form molecules, a type of structure is formed by the alignments of the dipole moments of those interacting atoms and molecules. This structure is colloquially defined as “crystal” structure, even when its irregularity does not present as a shiny diamond or crystal of ice. Generically, everything is a crystal under some circumstance of temperature and pressure, including water.
But, we see crystals at the macro level of the human scale. We see a crystal only when billions of them have accumulated, such that our 43mm eyes can resolve them to images in our brains. With very, very rare, expensive, and intense equipment, built only recently by humans, we may see a fuzzy outline of an atom. But, atoms do not make the smallest crystal. The aether makes the smallest crystal. That recently developed equipment, stored under guard in switzerland, is not able to resolve the dipole moments of the aether’s lyotropic crystal.
Like water, the lyotropic aether is not always regularly-crystalized. It is at one time amorphous, and at another time structured, like water is at one time amorphous (liquid), and at other times structured (ice). What causes the transition from water to ice is the subtraction of energy. What causes the transition to regular-crystal structure in the aether is the addition of energy. It is in some ways backwards from matter interaction. It is the compliment. The action of lyotopic aether carries the attribute of self-assembly, self alignment, and self propagation. In this way is is somewhat like a particular form of matter, the liquid crystal of the LCD display.
