Once upon a time there was a substance called ether, also known as quintessence, that delighted and baffled medieval scientists for centuries. They postulated that it was a medium used by light to travel through the vacuum of space. It was also thought to be responsible for all kinds of other complex scientific phenomena. At the end of the 19th century, the scientific community collectively disavowed the notion, and concluded that it never existed. Ironic then that ether should, well, disappear into the ether.
