It has long been my view that radioactivity rates are not constant. My reasoning rests partially upon the counter-intuitive conclusions often determined by radiocarbon dating, but also on variations in Aether densities (magnetic flux densities).
It looks like the scientific evidence supports this view. A new article appearing on Stanford University News reports on the observation of variable decay rates coinciding with solar activity.
In particular, the radioactive decay rates coincide with the Earth being closest to the Sun and when a specific side of the Sun faces Earth.
Space is a fabric of Aether units. Like all things in the Universe, Aether is not smoothly distributed everywhere. In fact, Aether is very dense inside material bodies, such as the Sun, and very rarefied at the Sun's surface. This is caused by neutron formation, which pinches the Aether fabric.
The decay of free neutrons, and neutrons in free spaces within certain atomic elements (radioactive elements), should be partially dependent upon Aether density. Changes in Aether density will cause changes in distances between subatomic particles and even within molecules and atoms. This will affect the decay rate of neutrons, which in turn affect the decay rate of the atoms and molecules the neutrons are part of.
The closer the Earth is to the Sun, the less dense the Aether is. There also appears to be a powerful magnetic structure emanating from within the Sun and extending to the outer edges of the solar system; like a magnetic beacon. This causes alternations in magnetic flux density (Aether density) as the magnetic structure passes by Earth.
Further, the magnetic intensity of the Sun is likely to be affected by the Sun's position within the galactic magnetic field. So there is likely to be variations of radioactive decay extending over very long term cycles, just as there are observed variations at shorter cycles. Also, magnetic effects associated with gravitational waves from distant supernovas should also affect neutron decay rates.
Unlike the neutrino hypothesis proposed by Stanford scientists, the magnetic flux density hypothesis can explain how decay rates can be affected a day or so before solar flares, as changes in magnetic structures are already known to be the cause of solar flares.
