Light is enigmatic. Those who have seriously contemplated its fundamental nature are of a variety of opinions. In ESJ 27, Kulba suggested that light, arising from excitations and de-excitations of electrons, differed only in scale from radio waves emanating from a dipole antenna. It was further proposed that the aether was nothing more than the combination of all fields set up by the relative positions of all charges in the universe. Kulba shared these ideas with a handful of knowledgeable scientists, and the thought-provoking feedback they provided is the basis of this forum.
