__THE IDEAL GAS MODEL OF THE AETHER__

*ABSTRACT*
* Since Newton's "hypothesis
non fingo" regarding to the mechanical causes of gravity, physics seems
to have passed by our comprehension. The physical causality of mechanistic
geniuses, like Descartes, Galileo, Kepler, Huygens, Leibnitz, Bernoulli
et al., has been replaced by the mysterious and inconceivable "action at
a distance forces". Classical logic and common sense were substituted by
mathematical formalisms manufactured to fit unexplained experimental data.
By abolishing the Aether, Einstein erased the last possible connection
between physics and causality and established the new trend of science:
Experimental Mathematics.*

* Through Quantum Mechanics
this new trend eventually lead to the mathematical conclusion that space
must be filled by a "seething vacuum" of a "zero-point energy field" which
returns us to the conclusion of previous centuries that space must be filled
with some kind of contiguous, particulate medium. The latest words in modern
physics were Bohr's Copenhagen statements: Reality doesn't exist until
it is measured!....This measuring procedure must be translated to classical
mechanical concepts!*

* Thisarticle attempts to
show that since our mind evolved in the mechanical environment of the macroscopic
world, our only chance to "understand" Nature is through mechanical analogies
and abstractions. It contemplates the reinstatement of the Aether in the
form of the classical ideal gas of Thermodynamics in a supermundane order
of magnitude.*

* In the ideal gas model of
the Aether, its units, the Aethrons and their random motions are the fundamental
source of Newton's Laws, where inertia, momentum and force are equivalent
with Descartes' philosophical mechanistic concepts: matter, eternal motion
and collision. *
