The Current Theory: "Magnetic Fields"
  • The phenomenon of magnetism is currently explained to be a field activated
    in space by the magnet or electrical current. However, we have no idea
    what a "field" could be. It is neither space nor matter; yet, it exists within
    space, and is affected by, and can affect matter. Furthermore, why does the
    activated "field" take on the peculiar shape that it does?
What is Magnetism?
  • What physically is going on?
  • Why does a "magnet" produce a "magnetic field" around it?
  • Why does a flow of "electrical" current produce a "magnetic field" around it?

I seek to answer each of these questions without assuming anything but the motion of the aether.

  • I assume no action at a distance.
  • I assume no "magnetic fields" or "magnetic forces." .
"Magnetic Fields" as Flowlines of the Aether
Iron filings orientated around a the "field" of a magnet:
The kinematics of the "Magnetic Field": The Bar Magnet
Symmetrically aligned sink-source flow of electrons produces the distinct flowlines that correspond exactly with a
"magnetic field." Note that is necessary to have studied electrons on the
Atoms page to understand the kinematics of a
bar magnet.

A magnet is a unique aethron-body because its electrons are symmetrically aligned. They maximally reinforce each
others' individual sink-source flows. Thus, a magnet acts like a giant electron—that is, a magnet's induced sink-source
(south-north) aether flow pattern is identical, or nearly so, to that of an individual electron's. The global sink-source flow
pattern of a magnet his hitherto been called a “magnetic field.”

The opposite sides of magnets “attract” one another because the source side (north) feeds the sink side (south), thus
linking them in a way similar to that of a proton and neutron.
The figure on the left shows
the effect of a magnet on the
orientation of iron filings. The
orientation reflects the
magnet-induced “magnetic

The figure on the right
represents the circulatory
direction of the “field.” The
top of the magnet is “north,”
the bottom “south.”
Electrons induce a sink-source flow that mimics the effect a fan in a
perforated tube has on the surrounding air. A current is induced that
directly corresponds to a “magnetic field.”
The mutual reinforcement of electron sink-source flow in a bar magnet
  • In a magnet, the electrons are orientated in such a way that their sink-source flows
    reinforce each other, creating the “magnetic field,” or circulatory aether flow. The
    cumulative effect of all the electrons on the aether is equivalent to that of an individual
    electron's respective effect. Thus, the distinction between an “electric field” and “magnetic
    field” is illusory.   

  • Magnetic and electric fields are one in the same thing. In fact, there are no such things as
    “electric fields” or “magnetic fields”; they are just flow patterns of the aether. Likewise, as
    I explain in the Atoms section, there are no “electrically charged” particles: only
    permanent patterns of motion of the aether.
Magnetized Soft-Iron bar
Some metals, like soft iron, can become temperamentally magnetized when placed in an already established sink-
source flow (“magnetic field”). The electrons of soft iron, while relatively fixed in space in an organized symmetry, are
freely suspended in such a way that each can turn in any possible direction. Before the soft iron is magnetized, its
electrons are randomly oriented about their fixed centers. This means that, in this random state, the sink-source
flows of the individual electrons cancel out each other, and no cumulative flow is produced.

When placed in a “magnetic field” the sink-source flow causes the electrons, hinged on their fixed centers, to orient
their sink-sources in the direction of the global flow. Consequently, the original magnetic field is strengthened since
the soft iron adds to the global current. If the magnet or “magnetic field” is removed a sufficient distance from the
soft iron, the latter‘s electrons will again become randomly orientated, and thus, will lose their unified sink-source
This figure shows a
soft iron bar just
placed in a magnetic
field. It is in the
process of
orientating itself to
that field. Its
electrons are shifting
to mutually reinforce
each other's
sink-source flow
The next page explains the kinematics of the cylindrical (not circular) nature of an electrically-induced
magnetic field around a wire.
Gravity and "Magnetic Fields": Sink-source flow of a spiral torus vortex
  • The sink-source flow induced in the surrounding aether-medium of a spiral vortex like earth is equivalent to a
    “magnetic field.” The aethro-kinematic sink-source flow is the physical cause of the "field."

  • I'll use earth as an example because that is what we are most familiar with. The aether flows in towards the
    center of the earth at the north pole and exits at the south pole. This directional flow, north to south, is
    equivalent to the pole-orientation of bar magnets. The geographic north pole of the earth is actually magnetic
    south because that is where the aether is flowing in (the south pole being where it flows out).
