"... The "small circular helical pipe" sounds to me like the world-line of a fermion particle or antiparticle, the particles having + helicity and the antiparticles being mirror image with - helicity. The picture sounds sort of like what I write about at http://www.valdostamuseum.org/hamsmith/Sidharth.html It seems to me that you are looking at things in terms of rotations in 3 or 4 dimensions. That can give you part of the symmetries that we see in experiments, such as the Lorentz group of spacetime, and if you gauge them plus translations you can get gravity. If you go to 5 dimensions, you can get a version of electromagnetism in addition to gravity. In my work, I had to go to 8 dimensions to get a rotation group with enough content to give me all the forces and particles that we see by experiments. It is really hard to visualize in 8 dimensions, so in order to describe stuff clearly it is necessary to use the mathematics of Lie groups, particularly SO(8) etc, and that math background is not something that people usually get without studying math at least at an advanced undergraduate college, or graduate school, level. You can learn it yourself by reading books, but it is not easy to do. As you see, even in 3 or 4 dimensions it is hard to describe stuff in words without using so many words that readers tend to get lost, and even then word descriptions are not as definite and clear as math descriptions (in terms of Lie groups etc). So, I think that your intuition is good and that you are on the right track in intuitive understanding ... You start with "aether self resonance twisted helical pipe structure". The twist can be either right-handed or left-handed, so there are only two basic structures to start with: left-handed (particle) and right-handed (antiparticle). Now, what kind of spin should such a fundamental thing have? If it only knows what direction it is going, then it is spin-1 (vector), but since it has helical twist it also knows how it is oriented. Things that know how they are oriented are spin-1/2 spinor fermions. For pictures of how that works, see http://www.valdostamuseum.org/hamsmith/play456.html#Spinor What we have now is physically like neutrino left-handed (particle) and anti-neutrino right-handed (antiparticle). The spinor fermions that we don't have yet are like electrons and quarks. To get electrons, positrons, muons, and tauons, you must give them electric charge (+ -). To get quarks, you must, in addition to electric charge, give them color charge (red, blue, green). You say "Honestly, I can not understand charge", but you need charge to get the rest of the spinor fermions, so think about what you mean when you say "Charge is ... a ... sum of all vortexes on shapes surface ... which cancel each other out,come in pairs ... There is also internal time ... which is time it takes for a pair of fractional vortexes of certain scale to form after interaction with environment. ...". Compare that to how Feynman sees charge, which is that charge is related to the probability of a charged particle to send out a force-carrier gauge boson that connects with another charged particle and sets up a force between them. In your picture, the more force-carrying vortices that live on the surface of the fermion and the faster-in-time the fermion can replace a force-carrying vortex that has been sent out to connect with another particle, the stronger the charge of the fermon and the stronger the force carried by the force-carriers, and that is consistent with how Feynman sees such things. For example, if the neutrino with no charge looks like a uniform sphere with no force-carrying vortices, then maybe the electron looks like it has a force-carrying vortex on one hemisphere, where one hemisphere is for - charge and the other is for + charge, and a quark looks like an electron with additional structure like the 6 faces of a cube, which can be considered as 3 pairs of faces, each pair being one of the ones you see and its opposite hidden face on the back as shown here: x-------x / /| / R / | x-------x | | |G | | B | x | | / | |/ x-------x Note that at each vertex of the cube there are 3 square faces, each belonging to one of the 3 pairs of faces, and I have labelled them R (for red), B (for blue), and G (for green) to correspond to quark color charges. In other words, quark electric charge would be due to an electric-force-carrying vortex living on either the hidden hemisphere (the hidden 3 faces of the cube) or the hemisphere (3 faces) shown as not hidden in the figure above, and quark color charge would be due to a color-force carrying vortex living in one of the three (either R, B, or G) faces of the surface of the sphere corresponding to the faces of the cube. This picture would also probably explain why the quarks carry only fractional amounts (1/3 or 2/3) of electric charge. Now that you have the electrons and quarks, you can put them together in a condensate to form spacetime, and then see how force-carrying gauge bosons work, etc. Your ideas and way of thinking are very original and I think very useful. I hope that more people will consider them seriously and study them. ... you might ask why stop at the quark color force cube x-------x / /| / R / | x-------x | | |G | | B | x | | / | |/ x-------x and why not go on to other more complicated forces. My guess would be that, living in 3 space dimensions, there are only 3 types of regular polyopes: tetrahedron - 4 faces, 2 pairs of faces, 2 hemispheres, electric + -. cube (includes its dual the octahedron) - 6 faces, 3 pairs of faces, color R B G. docecahedron (includes its dual the icosahedron) - 12 faces, 6 pairs of faces - this gives you gravity. To see how it gives you gravity, I need to talk about Lie groups, and you can ignore that if you don't want to get into that math, but I do want you to know that your idea can be naturally extended to get gravity as well as the other forces, and that you do NOT get any extra unobserved forces, so your picture is very realistic physically. Also, note that looking at regular polytopes in 4-dimensional spacetime would give the same result, because the only new type of regular polytope that appears going from 3-dim to 4-dim is the 24-cell, and it is sort of a combination of the 3-dim ones, so it does not bring in anything new. It only shows in more detail how they all fit together. Here is (in case you want to see it) the Lie group stuff that leads to gravity: The 4 vertices of the tetrahedron correspond to the generators of the Lie group U(2) = U(1)xSU(2) involving the electric charge, the U(1) photon and the SU(2) weak bosons. (Half of those 4 vertices, 2 of them, would give the root vector system of the Lie group U(2), and I think that the half part may be due to the fact that the tetrahedron is self-dual.) The 6 vertices of the octahedron (dual to the cube) correspond to the 6 root vector system of the Lie group SU(3) of the color force. The 12 vertices of the icosahedron (dual to the dodecahedron) correspond by a Buckminster Fuller tensegrity transformation (see attached image) to the 12 vertices of a cuboctahedron which in turn correspond to the root vector system of the conformal group Spin(2,4) that gives gravity by the MacDowell-Mansouri mechanism. Note that Spin(2,4) acts linearly on a 2+4 = 6-dimensional space, in which the 6 dimensions correspond to the 6 pairs of dodecahedron faces, or, equivalently, to 6 pairs of icosahedron vertices. ... the point that IS easily understandable is that your picture also works for gravity and is therefore very realistic physically. ... There are 5 Platonic solids, or regular polytopes, in 3 dimensions: tetrahedron (4 faces and 4 vertices) cube (6 faces and 8 vertices) and its dual the octahdron (8 faces and 6 vertices) dodecahedron (12 faces and 20 vertices) and its dual the icosahedron (20 faces and 12 vertices) The cuboctahedron is not regular since its 14 faces are not all the same. It has 6 square faces and 8 triangular faces. It has 12 vertices, which is how it can be related to the icosahedron (which also has 12 vertices) by Fuller's transformation.

If you go to four dimensions, you get analogs of the five Platonic solids, plus one new one, the 24-cell which sort of shows how they are all related to each other. ------------------------ I don't understand Kolmogorov scaling very well, particularly whether and/or how it might be involved in going from the scale of the electron Compton radius about 10^-11 cm to the Planck scale about 10^-33 cm, but here are some comments. A web page that at one time was at grus.berkeley.edu/~jrg/ay202/node166.html says in part: "... the total kinetic energy of turbulent eddies of an isolated fluid decreases with time due to viscous dissipation. Hence a turbulent fluid can be maintained in a steady state only if energy is continuously fed into the system so that the energy injection rate equals the rate of dissipation. ... Kolmogorov ... proposed a theory to calculate the energy spectrum of such a system and began a new era in the theory of turbulence. ... Hence, L. F. G. Richardson's corruption of Dean Swift's sonnet: ``Big whirls make little whirls which feed on their velocity; Little whirls make lesser whirls, and so on to viscosity.'' ... the velocity associated with eddies of a particular size is proportional to the cube root of the size - - a result known as Kolmogorov's scaling law ... We now have an outline of a scheme for turbulence: energy must be fed at some rate per unit mass per unit time at the largest eddies of size and velocity ... This energy then cascades to smaller and smaller eddies until it reaches [the smallest] eddies ... which dissipate ...[the energy]... in order to maintain the equilibrium... the Reynolds number associated with the largest eddies determines how small the smallest eddies will be compared to them ...". You might think of the Compton radius as the largest eddy size, and the Planck scale as the smallest eddy size, but if you do that you have to explain the source of the driving energy and also how, as you say, "... energy of Aether eddies would be dissipated ...". If there is no realistic way to get such an energy flow to drive such a dissipative system, then you might consider the electron Compton radius vortex as a conservative system. A book describing such conservative systems is Deterministic Chaos, by Heinz Georg Schuster (VCH 1988). ... Here are some quotes from the book Deterministic Chaos, by Heinz Georg Schuster (VCH 1988): "... the transitions to chaos in dissipative sytems only occur when the system is driven externally, i.e. is open. ... conservative systems ... the solar system ... motion in particle accelerators ... display (in contrast to dissipative systems) ... no attracting fixed points, no attracting limit cycles, and no strange attractors ...
