Aether without collisions

    @JoP , please explain how you can have an aether theory without collisions. It is my understanding that aether theories exist in order to provide the medium through which light waves move and that is through collisions.

    Aether theories, if based on non-simplistic shapes, can transmit with other than collisions.

    Not all aether theories are created equal.

      If what people call an “aether” theory does not transmit light through collisions, then it is not an aether theory. It is something else. Sound is to water as light is to aether.

      I think the problems are two fold: 1) people are calling things “aether” theories that are not in fact aether theories. 2) People really believe that somehow aether can transmit light without collisions.

        I have tried to add images. Without images, conveying the concept is not as effective.

        I will make them a shareable link and try adding a link in a reply.

        Trying a link to an image in my photos folder in my profile here. As a test of process. Which if successful, also conveys my thoughts.
