We have one rule to guide them all: the aether’s right hand rule. Over the past several years, I have posited a number of things about the aether, and its attributes and properties, how it propagates light, and other things. I started with the idea of a lyotropic aether (one that can dissolve and reform) – giving it the “structure” of a liquid crystal when undergoing the impact of a moment of light, where the aether self-structures and self assembles along the trajectory of a ray of light.
I made this model fit primarily with the observed behavior of entangled photons, which seemed to indicate that the self-structured aether must support angular momentum. I then observed a possible analog to the mechanism which must support angular momentum, in the form of the Wilburforce pendulum. But, in all of this, I could give no good reason for the torsion (rotation) to exist, because my model assumed a straight forward hexagonal crystallography would sufficiently define the aether.
I thought of many things that could drive the rotation, but all of them failed the basic test of trajectory reversal. For instance, the universe has a spin itself, as it spirals outward and expands. But this force exerts an outside influence, which fails when the trajectory direction is reversed. I realized that whatever explained the right hand rule (at a deep physics level, not electrical theory level) – would also explain the rotation of the aether energy propagation.
Then it struck me: it’s not an outside influence, it’s an inside one. The rotation has to do with the crystallography of the aether itself. It’s a non-linear crystal! Non-linear crystals can be bifringent, meaning they can support multiple network node topologies simultaneously. Such crystals have short paths and long paths (node to node). This difference makes non-linear crystals asymmetric, and the asymmetry promotes a spin in the direction of the long-path percolations. Note we are talking about longitudinal percolations here, and not waves.
The reader may interject that this idea also suffers from the reversal problem, but it does not. Because it is the light itself that initiates the self propagation, and self assembly, it is that light that sets the initial angular momentum (“direction”) – entirely based upon the crystallography of the built path as it is built, which is always the same, regardless of whether there is a “reversal” or change in orientation.
Since the self-building energy paths always take a lopsided-ness based on trajectory, all rotation is W.R.T. that trajectory. This asymmetry is born of the longer path that one “node-set” traversal takes as compared to the shorter path opposite of it. The longer path loads more energy, and therefore puts torsion on the transit pathway, and the energy flowing through it. The angular momentum will always be with respect to the trajectory, and therefore can explain the right hand rule.
For the purposes of generating an aether echo-device (Wilburforce pendulum) entanglement scenario, a magic angle of 1.1 degrees seems to be needed, or at least is very much an efficiency boosting factor for the entanglement. This is in agreement with the idea of a staggered-structure, self-assembling aether, because a perfectly linear lattice would tend to rotate in either direction.
