If permeability = 0 and resistance F = 0 Then c will remain c .Back in the late 1800s, the term luminiferous aether conveyed the idea that there was some stationary medium in space to enable the advance of light waves. There was plenty of debate about the nature of such a light carrying aether, as to if it was stationary, or absolute in space, or in motion, or particulate, and what affect it had on light moving with or against ether’s aspect. The Mickelson Morley experiments found no evidence that the Earth was moving through a sea of stationary luminiferous aether ("aether wind”).I understand something to be a different interpretation of the something which has been proven to not exist. My interpretation of this something being proven to exist, the earths fields and other bodies fields.It's interesting to know you understand something which has been proven to not exist.QuoteTesla proposed that electrostatic phenomena might be considered as the aether under strain while dynamic electricity or currents should be seen as 'phenomena of ether in motion.'
Tesla almost understood the aether, I understand it better though.
These field acting has a circuit between bodies, an aether.
However, it isn’t hard to get a good layman idea of what the ether theory was at that time in history, and it is easy to realize why the Mickelson Morley type of experiments ruled it out. They found that light traveling perpendicular to the motion of the Earth through the ether showed no meaningful difference in velocity from light traveling with or against the motion of the Earth through the ether, falsifying the then current ether theory.
In regard to modern theories, I think Einstein said that there was no need for an ether in General Relativity because of the local curvature of spacetime, and in Special Relativity there is no debate about the speed of light; it is axiomatic that the speed of light is invariant in the vacuum of space. Maxwell shows that it is possible for light to self propagate through space.
But with all of that, it still hasn’t ended the ether debate.
