This ether would be stationary with respect to what?Since the ehther would occupy the whole of the Universe why would it have to be stationary to anything? If you have been to a firework display then surely you would have seen that the light extends to a far greater distance than the actual display. This would be a similar situation to having a Virtual photon ether, how could you have a Big Bang without it being accompanied by light, which because of its nature would permeate every corner of the expanding Universe..
Ok, since you don't understand even basic physics, I ask you in another way: Does Earth move with respect to ether? At which speed and in which direction?It depends on what kind of ether you are talking about. A virtual photon ether would be completely permeable to matter, it would possess latent electromagnetic properties which are activated when it comes into contact with real photons. Therefore this kind of an ether, remember it permeates the whole of space, would therefore be stationary with respect to the earth.
Certainly, the Greeks didn't take a lot of notice of experimentation.I think you are 'banging your head against a brick wall', lightarrow.Is there an Italian equivalent of that expression?
Or "flogging a dead horse" perhaps.
