Light and Smoke Rings


Spatiotemporal optical vortices, or STOVs (thin, gray ringlike objects), are newly described three-dimensional light structures that strongly resemble smoke rings.

Interesting. 

Remember my past post about smoke rings: 


Different, however, related concepts.

Considering that the aether is a superfluid of immense density, something moving through it will leave vortices.  The concept is important, and this photonic vortex may be supporting this concept.
And light or photons, being electro-magnetic radiation is itself an othogoanl votrex of E and M radiation, which is a relativistic projection of a single field, just looks like two fields due to motion (Feynman mentions this in his reds rags, buried in there somewhere: http://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/II_01.html).

As above, so below:

Nature behaves in ways not yet captured by mainstream science.  They're getting closer...
