I'm not sure what is typical with your approach. The ether as generally inferred has been scrapped. Time and space as generally inferred are both real and non absolute. This evidence for this has been given many times. You claim that your hypothesis predicts and aligns with exactly what GR does, yet you refuse to accept the scientific methodology that if that was true, then in such cases, the incumbent model [GR] will almost certainly maintain pride of place......particularly since GR has been constantly tested, and is still being tested for its zones of applicability and so far all very successfully with total positive results. GP-B being the most notable.
