High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Alchemy, natural philosophy, and early modern physics proposed the existence of a medium of the ]ther (also spelled ether, from the Greek word aether, meaning "upper air" or "pure, fresh air" ), a space-filling substance or field, thought to be necessary as a transmission medium. The assorted aether theories embody the various conceptions of this "medium" and "substance." This early modern aether has little in common with the aether of classical elements from which the name was borrowed. Although hypotheses of the aether vary somewhat in detail they all have certain characteristics in common. Essentially it is considered to be a physical medium occupying every point in Space, including within material bodies. A second essential feature is that its properties gives rise to the electric and magnetic phenomena and determines the propagation velocity of their effects. Therefore the speed of light and all other propagating effects are determined by the physical properties of the aether at the relevant location, analogous to the way that gaseous, liquid and solid media affect the propagation of sound waves.
