Spinning tori pile up into a crawling dragon that eats its tail (ouroboros), the rotations of the tori are translated onto the whole 8-formation, and it lifts off in a straight line through the Aether.
This blog is to present a Sci-fi Aether concept of how ellipsoidal particles that make up a gaseous medium, can align themselves and form figure 8-shaped loopings or toruses; and thus becoming in essence elementary particles within the Aether.
Some of stuff on this blog is perhaps too far out, and completely wrong, but there are some more valid ideas to reflect upon. Anyway, I'm trying to get a good simulation going, so it all becomes more clear.
