I suspect that proponents of aether-based models feel that light waves must require some medium to propagate through. After all, sound waves, ocean waves and earthquakes all require media, and cannot propagate through empty space.
Of course, this is an improper generalization. Electromagnetic waves, probability density waves and others are very different animals from compression waves in a medium, even if the math used to describe each is very similar...

The aether has no detected properties. On the other hand dark matter was postulated to explain an observed effect. Namely the accelerated expansion of the universe so there is no dual standard.
There is a unique reference frame in which the microwave background monopole is zero. This is observable evidence of our Sun's velocity relative to the aether, approximately 368 km/s toward Leo.
In my model, the expansion of space is both the source and the destination of dark energy. I don't want to go into too much detail about that, here, except to say that the aether has a foamy structure below the Planck scale; more bubbles equal more space; expansion of the foam pops the bubbles and radiates dark-energy pressure waves; but all that takes place in backwards time in a smaller-scale universe whose cosmic foam is our aether foam. From our point of view, in this universe, dark energy pressure waves converge to a point where they cause an aether-foam bubble to un-pop, absorbing dark energy rather than emitting it.

Use that mind and make it better.

Or, overpopulation, if one like. But that answer is too simple, it does not exclude a global warming.

Global warming is the biggest mistake we ever made. But we will learn from it.

We create, sometimes it stinks. We change. Education makes it possible. the way of the elders, telling us about their mistakes, and new learning. That's what makes a history, ourselves instructing ourselves, decade by decade, century by century. And yourself.

Dreams. And love.
And death, you cant avoid that one :)
But you can stay true.

Do you matter?

If life is a program.
Does your decisions matter?
« Last post by yor_on on 04/05/2016 18:58:01 »
Now, if life is a program.
Who do you wanna be?
better think before you decide.
