I think the easiest way to view the aether theory is like this. Water and ice. If you think the aether is water and all particles are ice. Water and ice are the same just have different energy levels. Same with the aether and particles and this best explains on how the vaccuum of space particles can pop in and out of existence. I wonder if anyone has used this analogy to how the universe works? water funnels can denote black holes where the funnel represents the signularity and the out side denotes the boundary. Much of the physics can still be seen using the fluid dynamics of water such as things speed up the nearer they get to the water funnel etc.

My verdict on the 6-part OP is this: GIBBERISH
From "compression of gamma rays" to electrons functioning as gluons... Cr@p. No bearing on what we observe in nature.
"This particular idea has the following trouble: the earth, in moving around the sun, would impinge on more particles which are coming from its forward side than from its hind side ... . Therefore there would be more impulse given the earth from the front, and the earth would feel a resistance to motion and would be slowing up in its orbit. One can calculate how long it would take for the earth to stop as a result of this resistance, and it would not take long enough for the earth to still be in its orbit, so this mechanism does not work. No machinery has ever been invented that 'explains' gravity without also predicting some other phenomenon that does not exist."
