When Physics Becomes an Amusement Park for Escapist Nerds, It Requires a Roller CoasterThe Ether definitely transports light energy, as it does all energy, in wave form. Why does that notion trouble you? Does a guitar string vibrating also suggest a snake to you? The energy still does travel in a straight line until disturbed by something in or along its path such as, indeed, gravity. "Waves" is a confusing description. Cyclical would be a better way of describing it. In any case, it's how Mother Nature (the Ether) prefers doing it. Coaxially,.. or hyperboloidic to coin a new term.
Photons are energy. They are passed along in the sense of a relay. How did the Quantum Quacks come up with the idea of a wave? I don't understand the picture they are drawing. A wave in water does go up and down, high enough to surf on.
