Atoms are composed of (created from and with) this atomolic (sub-atomic, quantum) substance as per Keely's and Russell's paradigms. We know today atoms are composed of so-called sub-atomic or quantum particles or as I prefer to call it: centralizations. It is this, our quantum soup, the Victorians referred to as "ether". As there are many different kinds of quantum entities there are likewise different kinds of ethers which accounts for Russell's twenty-five classifications of ether (pre-hydrogen elements) and the varying and many descriptions of ether from different scientists of that time period. So to say "there is no ether" denotes ignorance, arrogance and the worst of all negative personality traits - unquestioning conformity to self-referenced and arbitrary authority. Unquestioning conformity to arbitrary authority is a disease of the mind and Will. Should anyone make the blanket statement "there is no ether" ask them "which ether are you referring to?".
