The etheric IS matter. Matter that is less subtle than the matter most people can see.

I really think that the physicists are doing just that. They may not be using the lingo of the mystic, but they have defined subtle matter,
and matter that can even be in more than one place at time. There should be some very interesting discoveries/revelations in the next 10-15 years.
