Space contains isolated bodies or matter each composed of equal amounts of positive and negative electric charges as sources of electric fields. The fields exist in space, but balance out exactly everywhere. The strong electrical forces of repulsion and attraction, between the charges in two neutral bodies, proportional to the product of the charges, in accordance with Coulomb’s inverse-square law, balance out exactly everywhere and vanish at infinitely long distances from their respective sources. The equivalent pressure, energy density and mass density of the aether, proportional to the sum of squares of the electric fields, remain. The weak gravitational forces of attraction, proportional to the product of squares of the charges, remain and add up, in accordance with Newton’s universal law. The universal space, crisscrossed by electric fields from charges in bodies, constituting a medium supporting electromagnetic radiation and gravitation, is proposed to be the aether, as conceived by J. C. Maxwell and others. Electric permittivity and magnetic permeability are properties of electric fields of the aether. A vacuum has no property. Beyond the aether is a vacuum, with no electric field or anything else, extending to infinity.
