Excerpt From An Attempt Towards A Chemical Conception Of The EtherBut, Beyond This, The Conception Of The Ether As A Limiting State Of Expansion Of Vapours And Gases Cannot Sustain Even The Most Elementary Analysis, For Ether Cannot Be Understood Otherwise Than As An All Pervading Ubiquitous Substance, And This Is Not The Property Of Either Gases Or Vapours Both The Latter Are Liquefiable Under Pressure, And Cannot Be Said To Permeate All Sub Stances, Although They Are Widely Distributed In Nature, Even In Meteorites M Oreover And This Is The Most Important They Vary Infinitely In Their Chemical Nature And In Their Relations To Other Substances, While The Ether, As Far As Is Known, Is Invariable Owing To The Variety Of Their Chemical Properties, All Vapours And Gases Should React Differently On The Bodies Which They Permeate If They Were Components Of The Ether.About The PublisherForgotten Books Publishes Hundreds Of Thousands Of Rare And Classic Books Find At Www.forgottenbooks.comThis Book Is A Reproduction Of An Important Historical Work Forgotten Books Uses State Of The Art Technology To Digitally Reconstruct The Work, Preserving The Original Format Whilst Repairing Imperfections Present In The Aged Copy In Rare Cases, An Imperfection In The Original, Such As A Blemish Or Missing Page, May Be Replicated In Our Edition We Do, However, Repair The Vast Majority Of Imperfections Successfully Any Imperfections That Remain Are Intentionally Left To Preserve The State Of Such Historical Works.
