ether, also spelled aether, also called luminiferous ether
Luminiferous aether or ether ("luminiferous", meaning "light-bearing") was the postulated medium for the propagation of light. It was invoked to explain the ability of the apparently wave-based light to propagate through empty space (a vacuum), something that waves should not be able to do.

, in physics, a theoretical universal substance believed during the 19th century to act as the medium for transmission of electromagnetic waves (e.g., light and X-rays), much as sound waves are transmitted by elastic media such as air.
By the late 1800s, the existence of the aether was being questioned, although there was no physical theory to replace it. The negative outcome of the Michelson–Morley experiment (1887) suggested that the aether did not exist, a finding that was confirmed in subsequent experiments through the 1920s.
Despite the fact that it isn't intuitive, there's no evidence that there's a physical medium, or aether, required for these entities to travel through. All throughout the Universe, different types of signals propagate. Some of them, like sound waves, require a medium to travel through.
The Aether was one of the dimensions that were supposed to be a part of Minecraft and it was actually there in the beta versions, but it was eventually removed from the game. Nobody knows why, but everyone still wants to try it out. If you wished to try out the Aether dimension, you had to use a mod until now.

The theory of relativity didn't disprove aether, but it provided a simpler explanation that didn't require an absolute omnipresent medium for the motion of light. Einstein proposed that light traveled at a constant speed through a vacuum, and that everything is moving relative to everything else.
The Aether is an inverse to The Nether, with the Aether being large solid areas in empty space while The Nether is empty space in large solid areas. Its main features are large floating islands and formations of Aerclouds, which are solid cloud-like blocks.
In everyday life, we inhabit a space of three dimensions – a vast 'cupboard' with height, width and depth, well known for centuries. Less obviously, we can consider time as an additional, fourth dimension, as Einstein famously revealed.
In Path of Radiance, Aether can activate at 2-range when attacking a breakable Door with Ragnell or the Sonic Sword. This makes the game repeat Aether's animation for about 10 times before considering the door broken and opening it without any damage actually being dealt.
In the fourth century BC, Aristotle proposed "aether" as a name for the fifth element postulated by his teacher Plato. Aether, or ether, made up the worlds of the outer celestial spheres believed to surround our own.
They invented all sorts of theoretical reasons why the aether could still be out there. Then Albert Einstein got involved. Einstein's theory of special relativity, published in 1905, dealt the aether its final blow.
Many believed that the aether provided a fixed reference system against which all motion could be measured. Two American scientists, Albert Michelson (1852-1931) and Edward Morley (1838-1923), constructed a machine that could theoretically discern the speed of Earth through the aether.
In Greek mythology, Aether, Æther, Aither, or Ether (/ˈiːθər/; Ancient Greek: Αἰθήρ (Brightness) pronounced [ai̯tʰɛ̌ːr]) is the personification of the bright upper sky. According to Hesiod, he was the son of Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night), and the brother of Hemera (Day).
Referred to as 'akasha' in Sanskrit, ether is the element that comes first in yogic and Ayurvedic thinking. Ether is without the firmness of earth, the coolness of water, the heat of fire or even the movement of wind. It is therefore the very essence of 'emptiness'. The space element is the most subtle of all elements.
The Aether is a mini-biome that can be found in the outer fifth of the world in the Underground or Cavern layers. It is generated once upon world creation and is always located on the same side as the Jungle. The biome features a large pool of Shimmer in its center that is surrounded by several Gem Trees.
Aether eggs can be found at the top of floating quartz structures above the ocean, the egg is at the very top surrounded by snow, don't start the hatching on top of the tower because the snow can turn it into an ice-dragon. To hatch one you must place the egg at height 170 or above in the overworld.
The ether does not exist at all. The electromagnetic fields are not states of a medium, and are not bound down to any bearer, but they are independent realities which are not reducible to anything else, exactly like the atoms of ponderable matter.
