Logo of Aether Wave Theory

The circular infinity picture in the header is the "official" logo of AWT. It's illustrating the infinitely recursive fractal structure, formed by Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, which can be interpreted as a manifestation of dual nature of AWT, the particle-wave duality in particular (energy-matter, boson-fermion, male-female, even-odd, "ying-yang" principle) and the mechanism of space-time formation by nested condensation of waves into matter particles and vice-versa. The CFD simulation bellow illustrates this interesting phenomenon in action.

Tha resulting chain of vortices is sometimes called the Von Kármán street. Albeit the turbulence is generally connected with energy dissipation, the formation of vortex lattice decreases the friction in the surface layer instead, thus making the environment a bit superfluous by the same way, like the formation of quantized vortices in Bose-Einstein condensates. Therefore the AWT logo illustrates the superfluous nature of vacuum, too. Note the possible "extraterresterial origin" of graphics, created on July 27, 2001 in Rybury/Tann Hill, England...;-)

Cool animation, Zephir! Thanks for posting it. What is the significance of the Cahn-Hilliard equation with regards to aether wave theory?
