A MODEL ILLUSTRATING THE PRODUCTION OF A MAGNETIC FIELD IN THE AETHER

The diagrams of figure 1 may help towards a better understanding of the connection which exists between these two classes of phenomena. Although the aether is assumed to be incompressible, to fill all space through which light travels, and to have no interstices anywhere in it, this would not prevent it being granular in structure provided the grains were incompressible in volume, but were compressible in shape. The internal structure of the grain does not enter into the question, only the surface envelope.
