The substratum of the vacuum is the carrier of the elementary force interactions, such as electromagnetic (EM), gravitational, or nuclear. These basic fields occur as excitations whereas elementary particles are probably defects in the substratum. Experiments show that the substratum has physical properties e.g. a magnetic permeability  Vs/Am, dielectric permittivity  As/Vm, EM wave speed c =  m/s, and EM wave resistance . The substratum has either very small or no gravitational mass density, and consists probably of positive and negative gravitational mass particles with positive inertial mass (confirmation of negative g-masses would invalidate equivalence principle). The substratum appears to be a superfluid since (subluminal) particles move in vacuum without experiencing retarding forces.
