You would be taking up a small amount of ether like you
would in water and not attract anything.

Human existence on earth may have no bearing on gravity
and more on the electrical properties of the Earth.

Just a little bit. Right now you exert a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the earth. The earth just has more mass and, therefore, more inertia, so you barely move it.

Force of gravity = (GMm)/(r^2)
Where:
G = gravitational constant
M = mass of object one (earth)
m = mass of object two (you)
r = distance between object one and two.
The force on object one by object two is the same exact magnitude as the force on object two by object one.

The reason you hardly move the earth, while the earth moves you a lot, even though you both exert the same force.
F = ma
Where:
F = Force (of gravity in this case)
m = mass of object the force is acting on
a = acceleration of the object

Deriving this:
a = F/m

Therefore, as the mass increases, and the force of gravity remains constant, the resulting acceleration (as you would accelerate toward the earth) decreases.

we could move the entire Earth population to one side of the Earth,alter the centre of mass and move the Earth's solar orbit a fraction of a degree to avoid an incoming asteroid.

Who would have though mathematics would be useful for anything.

Of course that's just a theory,like lone gunmen and onstage chemistry.
