Ether and Its Functions (pdf)


"No doubt the undulatory, electric and magnetic properties of the ether require us to suppose a very much simpler nature for the ether than for any known form of ordinary matter. Ordinary matter, with which we are so familiar that we treat its wonders with contempt, is fearfully and wonderfully complex. We cannot hope to explain the innumerable properties of air, for instance, which is quite a simple form of matter compared with most other commonly occurring forms, without attributing to it some very complicated structure. The properties of the ether are so simple that there is every hope that we may be able to explain its properties by attributing to it a simple structure. So far as is known we need only attribute to it the ability to produce electric force and magnetic force in order to explain all the phenomena which can be repeated in any properly equipped laboratory. It is as if we had an invisible bar by means of which we could either push or pull or twist objects at a distance. These are very simple operations, and if they were the only ones that the invisible bar could perform we might very fairly describe it as possessed of very simple properties. No real ordinary matter is so extraordinarily simple as that." Can we, with perfect accuracy, speak of a space as empty which is full of light?"
