a few years back I wrote a thread where I discussed what seemed like an apparent paradox
I'm not sure I really buy into this idea of absolute space and time, rather than a relativistic space-time. Although the idea of absolute space and time does appeal to me, all our experiments show that reality appears to be built upon a relativistic space-time fabric. Now that we've detected gravity waves it's clear that Einstein was correct on some very fundamental level.

Infogalactic is a wiki encyclopedia project created by alt-right staple figure Theodore Beale in 2016 that "aspires to be more objective" than the allegedly crooked and bias-ridden Wikipedia, while simultaneously giving power to "corelords", corporate professionals who have purchased the ability to oversee the editing of pages related to their industry.
Vox Day thinks that Wikipedia is the worst. But the things that bug him aren’t the typical complaints you’ll hear about the crowd-sourced encyclopedia—that it’s plagued by trolls, say, or that its pages on Pokémon lore are overly comprehensive.
Day is bothered because he believes that Wikipedia is a Democratic tool, run “by the left-wing thought police who administer it,” he tells me over email. Yet the millions of articles and stubs that make up the end product are used as fact. And that makes the science fiction writer and alt-right personality, who uses Vox Day as his pen name, angry.
For general relativity, I am not an expert. My belief is that rather than having a curved space-time, we might accomplish the same ends with a warped aether, but that is just a speculation at this point. The main observation is that one can have more than one explanation for experimental results.
I hold that space cannot be curved, for the simple reason that it can have no properties. It might as well be said that God has properties. He has not, but only attributes and these are of our own making. Of properties we can only speak when dealing with matter filling the space. To say that in the presence of large bodies space becomes curved is equivalent to stating that something can act upon nothing. I, for one, refuse to subscribe to such a view.

I find it kind of funny in that thread we're arguing the opposite positions, here I'm defending relativity and you're saying it's wrong, in that thread you're defending relativity and I'm saying it's wrong.
This does not fill me with much faith I'm afraid, when people start resorting to an Aether as a solution I get very skeptical.

Thanks for the positive comment. I tried to find Susskind's email address. At Stanford almost all of the faculty has either a phone number or email address listed, but not him. Once physicists reach a certain level of fame, they can be deluged with requests, so maybe he had to turn off the contact points.

Here is the Physics department contact info . Maybe start here and ask how you can get in contact with him .
Have you any updates since ?
won't your proposal return to us Laplace's demon, and crush the dangerous hopes and dreams of those that enjoy the peculiarities of nondeterministic and nonlocal reality?
remember Godel's Theorem?
