Paper Abstract

Atoms and molecules that emit light, do not impart the ultimate velocity "c" on the emitted photon wave packets. Their propensity for perpetually propagating at this highest velocity in every possible direction must be leveraging a sustaining complex cosmic tension field (C2TF; ether of past centuries), which constitutes the space itself and hence stationary. Then the null results of Michelson-Morley experiments, positive and the null results of Fresnel-drag experiments and the positive Bradley telescope aberration should be explained as a drag of the C2TF by the Earth. We support this previously rejected hypothesis through various self consistent arguments and experiments. We present a null result for longitudinal Fresnel drag, in contrast to Fizeau's positive result; since we did not introduce any relative velocity between the light source and the phase-delay introducing material in our interferometer. We also propose that C2TF has a built-in weak dissipative property towards electromagnetic waves, so its frequency decreases very slowly with the distance of propagation through the C2TF. This hypothesis would eliminate the need for an expanding universe. We recast Hubble constant to accommodate the required Doppler shifts. The observable manifest universe consists only of EM waves and material particles. For C2TF to provide the unifying substrate for a new filed theory, we need to hypothesize that all stable particles are localized complex 3D non-linear, resonant but harmonic undulations of the C2TF. The non-linear strengths of the localized resonant undulations also introduces spatially extended but distance dependent distortions around the site of the resonances. These distortions are effectively different kinds of potential gradients manifest on the substrate of the C2TF, giving rise to the various forces. We now recognize four of them. The origin of mass is purely the inertia of movement of these resonances along these different potential gradients they experience. We further assert that the notion of self-interference, either for EM waves, or for particles, proposed in support of the hypothesis of wave-particle duality, is logically inconsistent with our currently successful mathematics and hence we should abandon this unnecessary duality hypothesis within the formalism of current QM.
