An Overlay of Fieldlets
|Title||An Overlay of Fieldlets|
|Keywords||overlay of fieldlets, electrodynamics, individual charged particles, gravitational bending|
Summary: Grave sacrifices were made in order to formulate a self-consistant description of electrodynamics after the Michelson-Morley experiment refuted the existence of an ether. In an alternate view submitted here, the superimposed electrostatic fields of individual charged particles are offered as the long-sought medium. The interaction of one electric "fieldlet" moving with respect to all others is discussed. A crucial experiment is suggested, and the gravitational bending of light is reinterpreted.
