One of the favorite memes that circulates in groups of people who adhere to energy theories involving lyotropic aether and such, is the meme of push vs. pull in electrodynamics. Once you buy into the idea of lyotropic aether, and superlattices formed within the medium, then you realize the potential that all force in the universe is push-force, and there is no such thing as attraction.
This would naturally extend to all things in the so-called electrodynamic realm: Energy transfer, magnetism, and dipole moments (the latter of which hold the matter universe together). The idea is that superlattices form in energy paths and in atoms and in arrangements of atoms. So, the dipole moments in a magnet, as an aggregate, cause a superlattice that has feedback equilibrium, and this equilibrium, in combination with the refractive index of the superlattice, causes a fold-back of the energy field around the magnet. This amounts to a chain link that can seem to have attractive force for the next link, but instead has only push.
Key to understanding the push/no-pull theory is an understanding of two mode energy momentum transit, as in longitudinal percolation versus transverse refraction. The dipole moments between atoms of molecules would work the same way, and we would say that atoms are bound to other atoms by the wrap-around electrodynamic effect of the superlattice, making “chain links” where each link is a push-force link. These links altogether form the vertices of the crystallographically defined dipole moment binding-structures of not only matter, but of lyotropic aether as well. Therefore, Einstein’s non-success at building a unifying theory was based on a less broad picture of things that he calculated as his input. The additional pieces allow for unification of energy, gravity, so-called quantum entanglement, and matter interactions.
