"Aether theories" as main article of this category[edit]

  • Adding article "Aether theories" as main article of category: Aether theories is a general article which should give an insight from conception, history, experiments, till current-day research, which may give the general "picture" to users.
  • "Luminiferous aether" as it the basis of this conception should work as more depth article into aether (related to the study of the conception and history), as reference article to other articles developed around the subject.

Questionable Validity[edit]

Linas says that it isn't questionable. Does he mean to say that the science here is unquestionably invalid? That's the conclusion one would get if this category is placed in the category Pseudoscience, which is the other option proposed by User:Ashibaka, the foot idiot, who for some reason I'd like him to explain here thinks the Michelson-Morley experiment is Pseudoscience despite its mainstream acceptance.

I'm not sure why you feel the need to insult others. Aether theries are of considerable historical importance to physics, although some modern-day variations are in th category of pseudoscience. linas 19:02, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
Just pointing out the roots of his name,"Ashi", means "foot", and "baka", means "idiot". It was his choice to name himself that. There's little reason to believe that he doesn't know what that means. I just felt it would be interesting to disclose the meaning here. Hackwrench 15:37, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
My apologies, I did not know. linas 22:18, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Too many different Ethers[edit]

A category for pages that refer to theories of the aether (or "ether" ), a hypothetical physical medium (particulate or non-particulate) in which light might be said to propagate

So what do etheric body and etheric plane have to do with the category subject matter as defined? Other than a common origin of the term in Aether (classical element),and irrelevant references to Aetherometry shoehorned into them? Malcolm Farmer 10:08, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
