EM Waves Are Not Affected By Your Aether

if its effective dielectric constant is one- the same as for a vacuum. So having a denser aether near massive bodies will not bend light.

Yet you go on to contradict this when you say:
[Quote]And it changes the dielectric constant. I have no idea what the body-mass / dielectric-constant-curve would be.

So what is it? I have been saying that you have to tell us how it changes as a first step to making your hypotheses into a theory. Since we know how much light bends from GR, an effective dielectric constant could be made by anybody, even me. But that is your job. If I do it, it becomes my theory, not yours.

Actually though I agree with your first statement: that the effective dielectric constant is that of a vacuum.

I have long claimed that dark matter exists and is a BEC. It bends light as well via its mass. I just have not called it aether.

BTW- All that stuff about low freq EM waves is incorrect.
