There is a curious question raised about the "stuff" that fills space -
whether vacuum or aether. How does heat from the sun transmit from that body
to the Earth? It appears to thwart all laws we know. A vacuum is supposed to
be an insulator, aether or equivalent is in doubt. Of course that is if you
believe the sun to be incandescent, and not a cool radiant body as HPB

There are other seeming obvious objections to the theory of an incandescent
sun. If any are upheld, why do we experience heat when in direct sunlight?
Perhaps as James Churchwarden hypothesised its because an unknown energy,
interacting with Terran energy fields produces the effect in complex ways
rather than it being a direct cause of sunshine....

Best regards,
