More on the Casimir Effect and aether denial

PSI Blog 20200120 More on the Casimir Effect and aether denial

Guest Blog by Jesse Witwer:

The Wikipedia is illuminating on the ad hoc disconnect:

In quantum field theory, the Casimir effect and the Casimir–Polder force are physical forces arising from a quantized field. They are named after the Dutch physicist Hendrik Casimir who predicted them in 1948.. The Casimir effect can be understood by the idea that the presence of conducting metals and dielectrics alters the vacuum expectation value of the energy of the second quantized ...

First, they admit that all "mediums" produce an analogue of a Casimir effect.

“Any medium supporting oscillations has an analogue of the Casimir effect. For example, beads on a string[3][4] as well as plates submerged in turbulent water[5] or gas[6] illustrate the Casimir force.”

Then, they go on to puke out the ad hoc required.

“The causes of the Casimir effect are described by quantum field theory, which states that all of the various fundamental fields, such as the electromagnetic field, must be quantized at each and every point in space.”

I suppose, it shouldn't be surprising. There are many normal and well-established phenomena that have well established equations even such as the Newton Laplace that they go on to rebrand in some way.

All of this is because QP does not have a primary, or fundamental field. The various "fields" described are physics created fields. There is no way to demonstrate the fundamental field, or FF as Universal Oscillation Theory describes it.
