The aether (or electricity) is a fluid-like substance that is the stuff of all space and matter, and it flows constantly between positive and negative particles, with particles being merely aether sources and aether sinks. Space is densely packed with aether sinks (electrons) and aether sources (positrons). These electrons and positrons are paired into tiny dipoles. Within each dipole, the electron and the positron will undergo a mutual circular orbit. In the steady state, these tiny dipolar aether vortices will align with their neighbours according to two independent but superimposed principles. The first of these principles is that their rotation axes will mutually align and trace out solenoidal lines around a magnetic dipole. The resulting electron-positron double helix that winds its way around each such line is what causes the electrostatic tension that makes it into a ‘magnetic line of force’. The second principle arises when large scale aether flow, constituting either an externally applied gravitational field or an electric current (electric field), is superimposed on the electron-positron sea, hence causing the tiny vortices to become linearly polarized. This will result in a ‘couple force’ acting on the tiny vortices which will cause them to precess such that their precessional axes will be aligned with the externally applied aether flow lines. Centrifugal pressure will therefore act at right angles, both to solenoidal magnetic lines of force, and also to radial electric and gravitational lines of force.

In the dynamic state, the tiny dipoles will be angularly accelerating either in magnitude or direction (precession). This angular acceleration will be accompanied by a net vortex flow of pressurized aether that passes between neighbouring dipoles. This net flow of momentum constitutes electromagnetic radiation and it has a wave-like nature, in that the flow will constantly be emerging from positrons and sinking into electrons. The average speed of this flow is what determines the speed of light.
