Great discussion. If your going to seperate the wheat from the chaff its important to realize that gravity plays a vital role in this discussion....how you ask? Because we are talking about the fundamentals of fundamental forces and fields.
I again make the observation that gravity is not a fundamental force. I also make the observation that Maxwell, Klauz/Klein, Tesla and others have all made a clear opinion on the relationship of gravity to EM. This is what leads you to and supports their Aether model of the primary Scalar Field.
If you can prove to me gravity is a primary field and has a field carrier like a graviton or gravity waves then I will giveup on the Aether/Scalar field. Otherwise your beating a dead horse because the current model is not correct and the one glaring obvious reason is the inability to explain gravity and to support it with evidence of a carrier.
Otherwise without the proof of what gravity is and what its carrier is, then I am forced to maintain my position that the Scalar field is real and very well explained by Maxwell in quaternions, Whittaker's seminal work, Klauza/Klein 5th dimension bleedthrough, Tesla's unified field theory, Bearden's work on Scalar wars, Correa's autogenous pulsed abnormal mode plasma vacuum tubes, Aspden's work on the Scalar field, the work of Dollard and Meyl concerning longitudinal current, etc.
Not to mention the fact that Black Projects have obviously conquered technology that shows a new field theory is required to explain the technology they now possess and of course keep above top secret, even higher then the H bomb....thats a fact you know under the freedom of information act. Gravity is the wonderboy of the modern model....a fairytale that is not fact...but still it controls the universe....
If you want to disprove the Scalar Field you need to prove gravity....its that simple and the two cannot be seperated.
If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.
