In the upside-down world of the pipefish, sexual selection appears to work in reverse, with flashy females battling for males who bear the pregnancy and carry their young to term in their brood pouch. But new research shows even more factors appear to play a role in determining mating success.
Michelson-Morley experiment results may be interpreted by assuming the equivalence of all inertial frames of reference and constancy of the speed of light in most bodies. Albert Einstein showed this in 1905. The special theory of relativity has totally removed the usage of ether and suggested that mass and energy are equal and that the speed of light is the maximum rate for several bodies possessing mass.
A mathematical conceptualization where space and time were combined in a four-dimensional-geometry of spacetime was coded by ‘Herman Minkowski’ in 1908. Theory, Einstein demonstrated the link between acceleration and gravitation expanding his theory to accelerated frames of reference in 1916. Exclusion for this is Newton’ mechanics; that was valid as an approximation for small-scale rates in comparison to that of light.
The disagreement originated by Michelson and Morley about the electromagnetic occurrences was worked out by relativity. There was an other theoretical issue lurking with relation to the explanation of the distribution of electromagnetic radiation emission from a black body: experiment results cleared that toward the ultraviolet end of the spectrum, at shorter wavelengths, energy approached zero in contrast to established theory’s boundless energy.
The ether theory has solved this, ultraviolet disaster, dilemma in 1900. Einstein used this quantum theory to elucidate the photoelectric effect in 1905, and Niels Bohr described the equilibrium of Rutherford’s nuclear atom in 1913. The newest quantum mechanics developed and used by Louis de Broglie, Werner Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli, Erwin Schrodinger, and others became an essential tool in the analyzation of happenings at the atomic level.
Now I will be reading Steven Pinker’s book “How the Mind Works”. Inside the primary chapter, I find it rather hard to leave down the words. Always am I writing things down and making notes of these. It’s in this first chapter, or at the least where I’m at in this section, where Pinker elaborates on the attractiveness and value of the ether theory.
“It’s but one of the amazing ideas in intellectual history, for it solves one of the puzzles which make up the “head-body problem”: how to join the ethereal universe of meaning and purpose, the things of our mental lives, with a physical hunk of matter such as the brain.”
He later goes on to demonstrate this, demonstrating that the head computes advice, that links to other info, which links to other info. This constant linking of advice can link together one’s recollection, to ones will, to one’s physical interaction. He used the analogy of a child who would like to see his grandmother by taking the bus. When the child failed to enjoy the company of his grandmother, then the child wouldn’t usually go. Additionally, he wouldn’t go in the event the bus would take another route. The computational theory links together selection of actions with one’s will.
With the computational theory, I find a fascinating link. The head and body will not be independent, but instead, the head is a performance part of the brain. In this sense, let us use an analogy with the computer. For critics comfortable with Pinker’s work, he does, in fact, say his resistance to the brain/computer metaphor as the brain is wholly different and enough more capable of activities.
What is the ether theory?
It is very hard to explain something like this, but i will try it the most simple way. Aether is a medium or fluid, what you would like to call it, what light can travel trough. While aether is still unconfirmed, scientist never really made a discovery on what aether really is, they really relied on observations they did, adn they said that it was a fluid, it had no color so it was invisible, and it is the very thing what fills the whole galaxy. They also say that it is resting in a frame of motion, what is universal.
While there a lot of people who believe in that aether still exist, there was an experiment that totally debunked this myth. This experiment was the Michelson-Morely experiment, which was an attempt to detect the moving of the earth trough this aether, and at the end of this, it showed, that i could simply not exist. With Einsteins Special Relativity the need for an Aether completely disappeared.
What similar could really exist, what acts nearly as aether? Well it is a field. A field is not really a medium or as we called the aether, a fluid, and it can be created and exist in an empty space. Think of field like it is a vector at set points in the space that show the force that would be felt on another particle placed on the other side.
These are very hard to things to explain, because neither of them were really scientifically proven. Aether is a very complex thing, and we will have a longer article about it.
Just remember, every thing that scientists come up with, will be proven or disapproved by time. The time frame, we don’t know, but i am sure that every theory what is a fake will be debunked on this blog!
