The earth rotates about 361 degrees relative to a "fixed" star every 24 hours. Its circumference at the equator is about 24,901.5 miles. The horizontal velocity of the earth's surface at the equator is about 1,000 miles per hour and at the poles is zero miles per hour. Between the equator and the poles, the velocity varies.
Gravity at the surface of the earth is approximately 32 feet per second squared. Nether flow into the earth at the surface of the planet has a velocity of approximately 6.94 miles per second. At the equator, the earth's surface is moving horizontally at a velocity of about .29 miles per second.
The earth orbits the sun at distance of approximately 93 million miles. The mass of the sun is about 333,000 times the mass of earth. The earth moves along its orbit at approximately 18 miles per second. At the distance of the earth's orbit from the sun, the solar gravity is approximately .0194 feet per second squared, and the nether moving toward the sun as part of the sun's gravity funnel, has a velocity of approximately 26 miles per second.
According to figures published in 1984 in a Scientific American publication called The Universe of Galaxies compiled by Paul W. Hodge, the sun and its planets move about the galactic center at a velocity that is appoximately 144 miles per second. From this, I calculated an incoming galactic nether velocity at the sun's orbital distance of 203.6468 miles/second and a gravity from the galactic center of about 2.03647x10-15 miles/second2. These calculations were based upon an equation found in Gravity Equations on this website which allows one to compute nether velocity past an orbit from the orbital velocity.
The Milky Way Galaxy (our galaxy) is probably orbiting a common center for a number of other galaxies and the incoming nether velocity for this common center may be even greater than the 203 miles per second moving toward our galactic center. Also, there will be a relative nether velocity between our system of galaxies and the expansion from the center for the Big Bang.
Each large component of a resultant nether velocity are affected by more local components. The relative velocity of a stationary ether would have varied according to where the earth was in its orbit at the time it was measured. The speed of the sun about the galactic center, the speed of the earth in orbit relative to the sun, the horizontal speed of the earth's surface, etc. would have interacted to cause variations in relative ether velocity that would have been measurable with the Michelson-Morley type of experiment. However, the ether is not fixed and it is moving into the earth, the sun, and the galactic center.
Furthermore, the earth's constituent subatomic entities (vorticles) are actually
vortices of nether which combine to make a gravity funnel in which nether
flows toward the planet. Instead of a ball, the planet is a giant vortex which
"sucks" nether into it. And, yes, there is some degree of "entrainment" in the
sense that the sucking pulls ether slightly sideways as it flows downward.
There is no "shearing" action between the planetary surface and the incoming
nether - the two are not separate as would have been the case with a big ball
moving through a stationary ether.
Consquently, the relative velocities found in MM type ether detection have been
much lower than were expected, and the relative nether velocity vector due to the
earth's rotation is exceedingly small at its greatest.
The Effect of Direction
The MM type of experiment uses a horizontal table. One of my brighter friends once
asked if the table should not have been vertical. Perhaps he was right. To find
the resultant incoming nether velocity and direction, the table should be tilted
and rotated until the maximum reading can be found.
The Effect of Compression
Nether flowing into a gravity funnel is compressing in two dimensions which are tangent to the surface of any theoretical sphere (funnel cross-section) with a large mass at its center. When there is relative nether velocity such as that caused by the earth's orbital motion about the sun, any relative tangential velocity is reduced beyond the point at which it can be measured - because of the nether compression.
Think of a car moving along a track that is circular with a radius of 100 yards. The car is moving at a velocity of 100 feet per second (about 68 miles per hour). We are looking at this motion from above in a helicopter. We can make measurements to see that the car is moving at 100 feet per second. Now, suppose that we compress the scene (just as nether is compressed when it moves into a gravity funnel) so that the track has half the radius (50 yards). We now notice that we measure the car's velocity as only 50 feet per second (half of what it was). Now we compress the track a bit more until its radius is only 25 yards long (one-quarter of what it was) and we measure the car's velocity as only 25 feet per second. We continue to compress the track until it has a radius of only one inch. It now has a radius that is 1/3600 times as long as it was at the beginning. The speed of the car has been reduced to 1/3 inch per second (.0189 miles per hour). However, the speed of the car is now lower than we can measure with our apparatus, so we mistakenly conclude that the car is not moving at all.
Nether compression tends to reduce the velocity of nether in a horizontal direction until it is lower than we can measure with our apparatus.
The relative nether velocity is only one vector of the resultant relative
nether movement and the vector of radial velocity, which may have been
quite small at a distance, is actually expanded to become much larger as
the nether approaches earth. So at the earth's surface, the inward
moving nether has a very high velocity vector and the tangential vector
is too small for us to notice.
The Effect of Density Increase
This is another way of explaining the effect of nether compression.
Nether remote from a gravity funnel has a relatively low density.
As it approaches a gravity funnel, the density of
the nether increases. Momentum, the product of Mass and velocity, must
remain the same. As Mass increases, the velocity must decrease.
Therefore, the relative velocity of the nether,
due to the planetary motion within it, is much lower than expected when
measured within the planetary gravity funnel.
The Effect of Vorticle Energy Conservation
The inflow of nether causes the subatomic entities which compose the planet to orient themselves in the most energy-saving direction. This means that each entity adjusts its orientation slightly in the direction of relative incoming nether velocity as compared to what it otherwise would be. Nether and the vorticles are one. Although a horizontal component of nether motion may be detectable between two widely separated horizontal planes, at any single horizontal plane, the horizontal vector is almost too small to measure.
These effects are all common to the concept of a gravity funnel. However,
they were not expected by Michelson and Morley. Other scientists of their
day, expecting a stationary and separate ether, had no idea that it was their
own tendency to dictate to the universe which prevented their enlightenment.
As an example, the vector of nether inflow velocity to the sun is about 26 miles per second at the distance of the earth's orbit (93 million miles from the sun). At a distance of many earth diameters from our planet, this inflow will begin to be noticeably affected by the earth's gravity because the nether will be at a slightly greater density than the solar inflow would be normally at 93 million miles. If the density is ten percent more, the inflow velocity will be ten percent less because of conservation of momentum (Mass times velocity in this case). As the nether passes the zone of the distant earth's gravity in its journey to the sun, it will speed up again to its higher velocity because the density will have dropped down.
This interchange between Mass and nether velocity will become more pronounced the closer that the passing nether moves to the earth. At one point, the velocity of the passing nether will be less than that of the nether velocity into the earth's gravity funnel. Here, it will be taken in by the earth mass as will be the case with any that passes more closely to the earth. What we will see on the earth's surface as the passing nether is overpowered by the earth inflow, is only the earth inflow - unless we have very sensitive instruments to detect the slight sideward vector.
This same effect will be felt with the solar gravity funnel versus the galactic gravity funnel, the galactic gravity funnel versus the intergalactic gravity funnel, and so forth. If we were to send a probe to a point well outside our circle of immediate galaxies, and if that probe were able to measure nether velocity, we might get a decent measurement - but this is, of course, an absurdity.
