At the turn of the twientieth century most scientists believed that:

The final irreducible constituent of all physical reality was the elctromagnetic field.

That notion not only predicted, it demanded, all observed phenomena of relativity.

There is still no evidence that the old idea was wrong.

But if it was right, established theory including:

Quantum Theory
Big Bang Theory
Special Relativity Theory
General Relativity Theory

is wrong.

Maybe that is why
many theoretical physicists now revert to the old idea.
