I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it. 8)

I made a program to make a few animations for specific issues (which you have seen already), but never felt that it could handle everything needed (Did Einstein have to make a video? :-? ).

My brain is a bit worn out.

Einstein had sponsors. And if you have sponsors too: Einstein had other sponsors. :wink:

The greater issue is actually "Who really wants to know?" If anyone wants to know, they can find out.

The only thing that I personally want for "them" to know concerns SAM. But SAM is an issue that doesn't show up until very late in the whole RM:AO understanding. It is a bit pointless to talk about sending a rocket to the moon if the people involved haven't learned considerable chemistry and physics. And the only reason anyone was interested in going to the Moon was to establish military supremacy in orbit (note that since then, no one went to the Moon any more).

In general, as in Einstein's day, the only time anything significant changes is when there is a war issue at hand (which is why wars are created). War gives inspiration for the wealthy and influential to actually seek accomplishment beyond mere stasis maintenance. That has been the curse of Man since day 7.

Having the recipe for positive change doesn't help if one hasn't the ingredients.

Someone above said there is nothing
smaller than what we can observe.
Photons are what we use for observation,
and when an object is much smaller
than a lightwave, it is hard to interact.
Resolutions are getting much smaller, now,
using crossed beams, and the periods of
electrons are being measured at
~100 attoseconds (1 attosecond = 10^-18 sec)
So.
Is there nothing smaller because photons
are too big?
Or is there lots and lots more smaller
stuff AND a whole emr spectrum of
lots smaller-based photons, representing
the radiated energies of that
lots and lots more small stuff.

It is that small stuff that makes
up subatomic particles. It completely
fills space. It has currents, tides and
vortices. The vortices are the
Black holes- which I agree are
scientific fiction in the sense that
a bunch of matter didn't collapse
to make them. They are made in
the same extreme kinds of processes
that atoms are made in, and like atoms
they then persist indefinitely.

"what we have observed".
Ever heard of the "electron microscope"?
Electrons are much smaller than light photons.

And when trying to detect, the angle of reflection or deflection is used, so it doesn't matter if what is being detected is smaller. What is important is that it has affect. And if it has no affect, it doesn't exist.

And the issue isn't one of being able to detect, but rather the logic of why those particles exist in the first place. Particles can only form at a particular size, whether detectable or not. But in this case, they have already detected them anyway.

A supermassive black hole (SMBH) is the largest type of
black hole, on the order of hundreds of thousands to billions of
solar masses (M☉), and is found in the center of almost all
massive galaxies.
#
The origin of supermassive black holes remains an open
field of research.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermassive_black_hole
=.

My research.
Participants:
1) A supermassive black hole with temperature T=0K.
2) Zero vacuum with the temperature T=0K.
3) Ideal Gas with the temperature T=0K.
4) Quantum Theory that says: zero vacuum (as a cosmic fabric)
gives birth to “virtual” quantum particles.

My scenario.
According to QT the Zero Vacuum (as an Ideal Gas) gives birth
to the potential k-molar particles. The potential molar k-particles have
two forms of modifications:
a) Their collective movement creates conditions of heat: E=kT (logW)
and
b) Their individual movement create energy: E=(kb)*f .
The interaction between energy and heat created surrounded material
world of galaxies. But until today nobody explained the interaction
between E= (kb)*f and E=kT (logW).

Aether is the same as affectance. I can prove it with an accelerating variant of the Michelson Morley experiment. But I'll need some donations please.

Speaking of videos; I just made this simulation of a single sub-atomic particle which looks surprisingly like the emulation (if one could actually see ultra-minuscule EMR pulses) and could be included in a video. A black-hole would be merely a much, much larger version of that same thing.

But I really need to convey the following pic in an animated way:

I think science is actually a gag joke, like a tabloids. "Elvis presley gets a sex change, Madonna abducted by aliens, etc."

The line "Scientists are baffled!" is part of the joke. It is their role, as boobs. Benjamin Franklin was a booby man.

I think they are not meant to be taken seriously, but is a secret joke, like the TV show Eureka, StarTrek or Back To The Future is a potrayal of the joke,
I don't think scientists are supposed to make credible theories, but silly theories that will be disproven soon so they can use the line "Scientists are baffled!" over and over again like a Seinfield episode. Like any good movie, the characters are meant to make stupid decisions and have plotholes, so people can comment with each other, formulate their own theories and have a social commentary during the spectacle.

Aether is the all prevading material throughout space. The only thing different than it, is consciousness, the perciever, which uses energy (movement) based perception. Movement (time) is immaterial, people associate electricity with heated plasma but their is the underlying thing of "vibration", heat vibration in heated plasma.

MM experiment would be redone as to compensate for lack of movement. Aether does not move independent of Earth as was earlier assumed. Earlier it was assumed aether had an unknown fuel source that caused it to move in a linear direction regardless of Earth's atmosphere. This was silly. New theory is that is related to Earth's atmosphere's velocity. Hypothesis is that if an object is accelerating, a boat like wake will form around it, and hopefully some of the wake will be able to be measured. Problem is, the measuring object will also form a wake of its own, possibly shielding it from measuring its own wake, form a protective wake bubble and return a zero velocity value. Therefore this experiment may not be used to disprove aether, only possibly prove its existence.

Aether is the all prevading material throughout space.

But is that merely a theory or is that your declaration of the definition of "aether"? There is a serious difference.

Affectance is not defined to be "whatever substance is throughout the universe". It just turns out to be. And "Aether" was once defined to be "whatever medium in which light and particles travel". Aether was not defined to be "the substance throughout the universe", although strongly suspected to be. And how could one prove that it is throughout the universe? Perhaps there are places where light cannot travel? Perhaps there is yet another substance along with aether? When would the questioning end?

Affectance is necessarily in all places throughout the universe and is of what light, particles, and even time and distance are made. That is provable even without telescope or microscope. The quest is over.

Provability is the issue. Affectance is provable. Aether is merely speculatively supportable (maybe there is yet another substance causing the results being seen in the experiments?)

Therefore this experiment may not be used to disprove aether, only possibly prove its existence.

They already speculated that the aether was perhaps moving along with the Earth. But even with that consideration, they still didn't get the results that they were expecting. Today, they can be far more accurate. But the problem is that they still don't know what aether is and thus they don't really know what to expect. If they get what they expect, it will not prove that aether exists, just as it would not prove that it doesn't exist if negative results were obtained.

To prove something, one must know what it is that he is proving. "Aether" is merely a name for an unknown substance. Measuring an unknown substance yields unknown results.

We know what "affectance" is. We know exactly what to look for if trying to measure it. We know how it behaves. And we know that it is necessarily the make of all physicality.

And that is why I refuse to call it "aether" (else you might as well call it "God").

I don't believe aether is everywhere in the universe, there may be places where light and matter cannot travel.
Therefore it is different from affectance in that regard.
Also, light and matter need aether to exist and travel. HyperDense aether makes sphere atoms.

MM did not compensate for static motion relative to atmosphere. Was there a different experiment you are talking about that supposedly disproved aether?

No experiment disproved aether. They merely proved that there was nothing behaving as they speculated that aether would behave.
Aether Drag
Although Michelson and Morley went on to different experiments after their first publication in 1887, both remained active in the field. Other versions of the experiment were carried out with increasing sophistication.[A 29][A 30] Morley was not convinced of his own results, and went on to conduct additional experiments with Dayton Miller from 1902 to 1904. Again, the result was negative within the margins of error.[12][13]

Miller worked on increasingly larger interferometers, culminating in one with a 32-meter (105 ft) (effective) arm length that he tried at various sites including on top of a mountain at the Mount Wilson observatory. To avoid the possibility of the aether wind being blocked by solid walls, his mountaintop observations used a special shed with thin walls, mainly of canvas. From noisy, irregular data, he consistently extracted a small positive signal that varied with each rotation of the device, with the sidereal day, and on a yearly basis. His measurements in the 1920s amounted to approximately 10 km/s (6.2 mi/s) instead of the nearly 30 km/s (18.6 mi/s) expected from the Earth's orbital motion alone. He remained convinced this was due to partial entrainment or aether dragging, though he did not attempt a detailed explanation. He ignored critiques demonstrating the inconsistency of his results and the refutation by the Hammar experiment.[A 31][note 5] Miller's findings were considered important at the time, and were discussed by Michelson, Lorentz and others at a meeting reported in 1928.[A 32] There was general agreement that more experimentation was needed to check Miller's results. Miller later built a non-magnetic device to eliminate magnetostriction, while Michelson built one of non-expanding Invar to eliminate any remaining thermal effects. Other experimenters from around the world increased accuracy, eliminated possible side effects, or both. So far, no one has been able to replicate Miller's results, and modern experimental accuracies have ruled them out.[A 33] Roberts (2006) has pointed out that the primitive data reduction techniques used by Miller and other early experimenters, including Michelson and Morley, were capable of creating apparent periodic signals even when none existed in the actual data. After reanalyzing Miller's original data using modern techniques of quantitative error analysis, Roberts found Miller's apparent signals to be statistically insignificant.

Hammar Experiment
Experiments such as the Michelson–Morley experiment of 1887 (and later other experiments such as the Trouton–Noble experiment in 1903 or the Trouton-Rankine experiment in 1908), presented evidence against the theory of a medium for light propagation known as the Luminiferous aether; a theory that had been an established part of science for nearly one hundred years at the time. These results cast doubts on what was then a very central assumption of modern science, and later led to the development of special relativity. In an attempt to explain the results of the Michelson–Morley experiment in the context of the assumed medium, aether, many new hypotheses were examined. One of the proposals was that instead of passing through a static and unmoving aether, massive objects at the Earth's surface may drag some of the aether along with them, making it impossible to detect a "wind". Oliver Lodge (1893-1897) was one of the first to perform a test of this theory by using rotating and massive lead blocks in an experiment that attempted to cause an asymmetrical aether wind. His tests yielded no appreciable results differing from previous tests for the aether wind.[1][2]

In the 1920s, Dayton Miller conducted repetitions of the Michelson–Morley experiments, which allegedly gave a positive result. However, several experiments conducted afterwards by others gave negative results. Miller claimed that this is due to entrainment of the aether, because the other experiments used heavily enclosed equipment. To test Miller's assertion, Hammar conducted the following experiment using a common path interferometer in 1935.

The essential problem was that they were only speculating as to how aether might behave. They have no means for knowing how aether would behave concerning possible wind effects. Demonstrating no aether wind has little to nothing to do with proving the existence or nonexistence of aether. The true fundamental substance that they were looking for simply doesn't behave as they thought/think. Until they realize what it actually is, they could keep speculating forever.

You are always more insecure than you think, just not by what you think.
The only absolute certainty is formed by the absolute lack of alternatives.
It is not merely "do what works", but "to accomplish what purpose in what time frame at what cost".
As long as the authority is secretive, the population will be subjugated.

Amid the lack of certainty, put faith in the wiser to believe.
