There may be an "Aether" after all!

Isaac Newton thought that absolute space was a distinguished frame of reference that could show bodies to be truly moving or truly at rest. Actually absolute space is the dimension where inertial mass of matter is created. When a Primary force (F=MA) is exerted on a body - inertial mass is created - its energy level (E=MC2) relative to absolute space rises! - When a body drops to a lower space energy level its inertial mass decreases and it emits tremendous amount of heat energy.
BUT they did not prove - one way or the other - that there was no Aether!
Although Michelson/Morley experiment in their quest to find our planet's motion through the hypothetical aether (absolute space) failed, their experiment was successful in that they discovered one of the most fundamental characteristics of nature. Their experiment strongly indicated that nothing moves relative to absolute space - there was no aether wind.
A body or energy does not move relative to absolute space - only to other matter and energy. There is no aether wind because nothing moves relative to it. When a body emits a ray of light the body must be considered motionless relative to absolute space.
They failed to realize this however and thought the quest to prove the existence of aether was a failure. Actually they proved that absolute space is one single entity - a body does not move relative to space itself - probably the greatest discovery of the 19th century - and yet still not accepted by today's science.
Relative Motion: All motion must be relative to something else. To perceive motion of a body it must be compared with another frame of reference or body. When its motion is being compared to absolute space its motion is always zero. That is why Michelson could find no evidence of an aether wind nor motion of the Earth through space. (They proved that there is no aether wind BUT but they did not prove that there is no Aether!)
Absolute space and the Laws of Nature are synomynous. Isaac Newton thought that absolute space was a distinguished frame of reference that could show bodies to be truly moving or truly at rest. - He was half right, all bodies relative to absolute space are motionless (at rest). He did not realize that nothing moves relative to space itself (zero (0) speed) as was later proven by the Michelson/Morley experiment. (Which science has so far rejected!)
The Michelson/Morley experiments tried but failed to detect any motion of the Earth relative to aether or Absolute Space. Their experiment proved their is no aether wind BUT NOT THAT there is no aether. There may be an aether BUT the Earth does NOT move through it - The earth is stationary relative to aether (and so is every thing else!).
What is Absolute Space?? - Absolute Space is the first dimension and foundation of the whole universe. Absolute space is made up of the physical "Laws of Nature". The physical laws of nature give the universe its personality. Absolute space and the Laws of Nature are synomynous - they are the same thing (equivalent). The universe can only exist were the Laws of Nature exist. Where these Laws end the Universe ends. (Hoyle and his "steady state universe" was right).
The universe is a closed system - all matter and energy in the universe remains a constant quantity. Virtual protons flash in and out of existence BUT the total quantity of matter and energy within the universe remains constant. The Michelson-Morley experiment proved nothing moves relative to Absolute Space itself. When a body emits a ray of light it will always be reflected back to the emitting body at exactly the same speed with no intereference. (I call the speed of light "inertial infinity")
Matter and energy move relative to other matter and energy but NOT to absolute space. The motion/energy level of a body, relative to other bodies, is its momentum (Mo=MV). The mass/energy of a body relative to absolute space is its inertial mass.
A body always has at least two different energies relative to absolute space. One is momentum and the other is inertial mass. A body's vector motion is always zero (0), relative to absolute space, BUT the body's inertial mass/energy relative to absolute space, does vary and is manifested as the body's "inertial relativistic mass" or its energy level relative to absolute space ("its space energy level"). This is the dimension where the inertial mass of matter is created.
What is dark matter?? - Dark matter is simply ordinary matter that is at a higher "relativistic inertial mass" level (space energy level). "Rest" mass is not invariant, it changes with its energy level relative to absolute space. Therefore since the strength of gravity depends on the relativistic inertial mass level of matter its gravity will also be proportionaly stronger. The higher matter's "space energy level" relative to absolute space is, the stronger its gravitation attraction also will be.
Newton's classical equation for gravity is OK as long as "relativistic inertial mass" is substituted for "rest" mass. "Rest" mass is not invariant, in other areas of the galaxy it will be different. This is why new stars are formed in the outlying portions of the spiral galaxies where gravity is stronger due to higher energy levels relative to absolute space in this area.
Even at different seasons on Earth it may be different (especially at aphelion and perihelion when the Earth's relativistic inertial mass may be very slightly different. The GPS scientists also found this out and must constantly moniter their satellites' atomic clocks to keep their earth clocks in sync. with the satellites' clocks. There are no perfect clocks - when the inertial mass is different the oscillations the atoms in the clocks will also be slightly different causing the clock's time to vary.
Einstein was wrong when he said that "the universe has no absolute frame of reference". - He failed to take into account that the although the motion (kinetic/energy) of a body relative to absolute space is always zero (0), (he thought it was meaningless - big mistake!) the relativistic mass/energy of the body has great significance in the nature of things!!
The body's relativistic mass/energy depends on its energy level relative to absolute space. (its "space energy level" or its relativistic inertial mass). The higher the "space energy level" the greater is the body's relativistic inertial mass. Although there is no motion involved relative to absolute space, the body's relativistic inertial mass/energy level varies with its "space energy level".
"Relativistic inertial mass" and "space energy level" are synonymous terms that explains the energy level of a body relative to its energy level relative to absolute space. Einstein himself came up with the idea of relativistic mass but preferred to use the term "rest" mass for his E=MC2 equation. "Rest mass" is just the relativistic mass of a body on the surface of the earth but once go up into space you quickly run into trouble as the GPS scientists found out. They thought the discrepancy was due to "time" changing but it actually is simply the relativistic mass of the atom's oscillations in the atomic clock have changed slightly which caused the clock's timing to get out of sync with the Earth's "rest" mass clocks.
Absolute Space has no direction, or geometry (Euclidean or Riemmanian) it is all one, there is no part of absolute space. When you speak of coordinates or references you are not speaking of space itself you are speaking of points or lines within space - not absolute space itself. A body always has two energies - one vector (kenetic) relative to other bodies and one scalar (inertial mass) relative to absolute space.
The "laws of nature" are the frame work of the universe and determine its personality. They create "absolute space" and everything it contains. Absolute space can only exist within the domain of these laws, where the "laws of nature" end - absolute space ends. This is the limit of the extent of the universe. If space is expanding (highly unlikely), it is only because the laws of nature are expanding into the void.
The two types of energy we are concerned with here are: motion/energy and mass/energy. Motion/energy of a body is its momentum relative to other bodies,(Mo=MV). Mass/energy of a body is its energy level relative to absolute space. Mass/energy is manifested as a body's "inertial mass" or its "space energy level". Bodies do not move relative to absolute space, no motion is involved.
A proton's relativistic inertial mass depends on its "space energy level" relative to absolute space. A proton's "rest" mass in the outlying area of a spiral galaxy will be greater then a proton's "rest" in the slower central part of the galaxy. Also a proton's inertial "rest" mass in a galaxy that is at a higher (or lower) energy level relative to absolute space, then is ours, will be greater (or lower) than a proton in our galaxy.
Inertial Mass can vary. A planet that has a different energy level relative to absolute space then another planet will have a different inertial mass. It all depends on the energy levels of the planets relative to absolute space. The astronomers were right about the planets or stars not having a special place in the universe! The fact is absolutely nothing moves, relative to absolute space. Everything ( galaxies, stars, atoms, photons, etc.) are motionless relative to absolute space, BUT their inertial mass/energy level relative to absolute space does vary.
Michelson's experiments could find no evidence of a change in the speed of light no matter what direction their apparatus was aimed. This is strong proof that the earth is motionless relative to absolute space and light will travel at the same rate away from the emitting body and reflected back no matter which direction it heads. It also indicated that there was no aether wind but that would be a natural conclusion since the earth is not moving relative to absolute space(aether).
