In the world of Nano-technology and Self-Propelled Particles (SPP) it is said that Chirality (handedness) is needed for vortex-formations to occur. True, but chirality could also happen due to an external factor, differences in pressure (density fluctuations) within the medium in reference to a perfectly symmetric forward moving SPP.
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.
