His aether idea is just built on foundations from ideas that more or less started up when philosophers started to look at logic in a mathematical
Your positive-positive no net charge idea is a notion of behavior within observable space-time.
Depending on which side of the fence you sit on, when it comes to Bell's Theorem is an easier way to credit or discredit these types of ideas.
His aether matches Tegmark-esque descriptions of approximations of energy and forces in n+1 dimensions that can't be directly predicted from n
It's likely his ideas are attempting to utilize an axial plane outside of space-time to generate some force inside of space-time.
Ultimately, research into the behavior of gravity, has led many current physicists and researchers to explore the possibility that this type of idea
is at the source of gravity's one directional movement in space-time.
(One directional in space-time, being that gravity starts it's life as an attractive force, and remains so, throughout space-time. We do not have
direct evidence of gravity acting as a repelling force, and if it does... We definitely can't observe that directly as of right now.)
In a convoluted way, that kid was just suggesting direct gravity manipulation, with no mechanism to actually change gravitational fields.
If Einstein HAD actually finished UFT then this kid's "aether" would be something we were already using.
Given that we have yet to actually prove that there is any possibility that something from n dimensions can manipulate something in n+1 which can then
echo back and alter something else in n dimensions. (Bell's theorem exists because we have yet to bump something 4th dimensional, have it come back to
3d space, and/or alter 3d space while it's in the 4th dimension.
Really, gravity, time travel, etc... one way or another it all ends up with the question - Can we get out of n dimensions? Can we leave space-time
somehow? Can we bend light speed? Can we ____ ?
We've been trying with modern technology for decades... If we can do any of that stuff... Well... For the most part, I sure don't know about it.
Equal and opposite reactions applies within our observable system... Who knows how stuff acts in between dimensional change overs...
10 joules of 4th dimensional force when scaled into space-time might be enough energy to destroy the universe for all we really know about that
subject right now. Luckily, we're so far away from developments like that, I can sleep easy knowing that Donald Trump, Petrol Wars, Nuclear
Explosives, and a healthy intake of carcinogens will kill me, long before I have to worry about physicists doing it by bringing an interdimensional
stowaway from n+1 back into space-time.
