Nonlocality and Entanglement: The Nature of Reality & The Science of Oneness – Introduction & Terminology
We can make surprising leaps in understanding of technical or complex subjects simply by learning key terminology. The following scientific terms are all perfectly accessible to any curious person.
- Aether / Ether
- Nonlocality and Entanglement
- Quantum Physics
- Unified Theory of Physics
In addition, the following terms refer to powerful scientific concepts that may be helpful to you, but they are not critical for understanding most of the science presented later in this section.
- Holographic Universe
- Noetic Sciences
See below for clear explanations, plus links to more information.
Aether / Ether
Of all the concepts and terminology related to the consciousness and the nature of reality, aether may be the most important in helping to reorient thinking from an outdated worldview to one that is more aligned with the true nature of reality.

- Aether has made a comeback in scientific theory, serving as a key to the Unified Theory of Physics.
- In philosophies around the world, including yoga philosophy, aether has long been described as the fifth of the elements that make up the universe: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Aether. (See also: Ayurveda & Yoga: The Elements)
- Aether provides the space for other elements to exist; it transcends and includes the other four.
- In the Unified Theory of Physics, Aaether is “the field which connects and permeates all things.”
- It is “a living force behind all things.” (source)
- Aether serves as the medium for light and sound waves.
- Also known as Quintessence, The Field, Quantum Field, SpaceTime, The Fabric of the Cosmos, The Void, Akasha, The Universe and Spirit.
- In some cases, the word “space” is also a synonym for aether, such as in philosophies that include space as one of the five elements, and in statements such as: “Instead of space being emptiness, it begins to appear that space is the mother of everything.” (source) In common parlance, however, the word “space” (or “outer space”) is often being used to specify a place beyond Earth.
- In this article, Adam Apollo makes an elegant connection between aether and prana. We might call this the relationship between The Field and The Force. We can think of aether as The Field that connects and permeates all things and prana as The Force that describes the movement of energy through The Field, or the movement of The Field itself.
Quantum Field: Another Word for Aether
Current scientific theories advocating the existence of “dark matter,” “dark energy,” “zero point energy” and “energy from the vacuum” have dragged unwilling Western researchers to the recognition of an undetected energy that exists throughout the universe. While these same scientists deplore terms like “aether,” they’ll often freely use a term like “quantum field,” which is really just another word for the aether. One very early instance of evidence for the presence of the aether originates from the reputable physicist Dr Hal Puthoff. He regularly points out experiments from the very early 20th century, performed prior to quantum mechanics, that were created to see if there is any type of power in “void” of empty space. – Eric Thompson
Aether is an Essential Facet of the Philosophy & Science of Reality in Cultures Around the World
For thousands of years, the Aether (ether, æther, aither), a field which connects and permeates all things, was an essential facet of both the philosophy and science of reality in cultures around the world… It is sometimes more generally translated simply as “Spirit”… In Japanese, it is considered to be the void through which all other elements come into existence… There are also many terms for the movement of energy through the Aether, or the movement of Aether itself. These include qi (also written as chi, ch’i, or ki) which is a traditional Chinese and Taoist concept for the natural energy or “life force” of any living thing. In Hinduism, a similar idea is known as prana, which is the life force which connects all the elements of the universe. For Hawaiian and some polynesian cultures, this field of living force is known as mana. The same concept is known as ruah in Hebrew, as lüng in Tibetan Buddhism, as pneuma in ancient Greece, and vital energy in Western philosophy. It is also popularized by the idea of “The Force” in Star Wars. – Adam Apollo
The Same Point in Tesla’s Words
All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance… filling all space, the akasha, or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena. – Nikola Tesla
