Brendan D. Murphy: Though previously a popular scientific concept (in the form of the lumeniferous aether), the notion of an aether (ether) had essentially become taboo in science after the infamous Michelson-Morley (M-M) experiment supposedly disproved its existence in 1887, even though at best (or worst) all it did was seemingly to disprove the existence of an inert material or mechanical aether, hanging in the air like a gas. The adoption of Einstein’s relativistic theories where space-time was dependent on (relative to) an observer’s speed ruled out an aetheric medium which rationally offered a single universal metric for space and for time. Gregg Braden, in The Divine Matrix, has referred to the M-M experiment as “history’s greatest ‘failed’ experiment.”

The absence of a result is not a valid basis for conclusions in science

Umm, yes it is.. if you cannot prove your hypothesis then your hypothesis remains as just that.
