Allynh, in what way do his ideas echo aether?

Electric Gravity in an Electric Universe
If I can use a simple analogy, light travels slowly like the transverse ripples on a pond surface; gravity travels swiftly and longitudinally, like the speed of sound in water. Once again, this is at odds with Einstein’s metaphysics because it reinstates Maxwell’s aether: Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory requires a medium. How can you wave nothing?
The Michelson-Morley basement experiment was heralded as having lain to rest the notion of an aether. It didn’t. Dayton Miller carried out far more rigorous repeats of that experiment at different locations and elevations. He found a residual, which allowed him to conclude that ponderable bodies like the Earth drag the aether with them. He was able to determine the relative motion of the solar system with respect to the aether.
Read through the Dayton Miller's Ether-Drift Experiments
and pay attention to the way the aether is described as being "entrained".
Miller's work, which ran from 1906 through the mid-1930s, most strongly supports the idea of an ether-drift, of the Earth moving through a cosmological medium, with calculations made of the actual direction and magnitude of drift. By 1933, Miller concluded that the Earth was drifting at a speed of 208 km/sec. towards an apex in the Southern Celestial Hemisphere, towards Dorado, the swordfish, right ascension 4 hrs 54 min., declination of -70° 33', in the middle of the Great Magellanic Cloud and 7° from the southern pole of the ecliptic. (Miller 1933, p.234) This is based upon a measured displacement of around 10 km/sec. at the interferometer, and assuming the Earth was pushing through a stationary, but Earth-entrained ether in that particular direction, which lowered the velocity of the ether from around 200 to 10 km/sec. at the Earth's surface. Today, however, Miller's work is hardly known or mentioned, as is the case with nearly all the experiments which produced positive results for an ether in space. Modern physics today points instead to the much earlier and less significant 1887 work of Michelson-Morley, as having "proved the ether did not exist".
While Miller had a rough time convincing some of his contemporaries about the reality of his ether-measurements, he clearly could not be ignored in this regard. As a graduate of physics from Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society and Acoustical Society of America, Chairman of the Division of Physical Sciences of the National Research Council, Chairman of the Physics Department of Case School of Applied Science (today Case Western Reserve University), and Member of the National Academy of Sciences well known for his work in acoustics, Miller was no "outsider". While he was alive, he produced a series of papers presenting solid data on the existence of a measurable ether-drift, and he successfully defended his findings to not a small number of critics, including Einstein. His work employed light-beam interferometers of the same type used by Michelson-Morley, but of a more sensitive construction, with a significantly longer light-beam path. He periodically took the device high atop Mt. Wilson (above 6,000' elevation), where Earth-entrained ether-theory predicted the ether would move at a faster speed than close to sea-level. While he was alive, Miller's work could not be fundamentally undermined by the critics. However, towards the end of his life, he was subject to isolation as his ether-measurements were simply ignored by the larger world of physics, then captivated by Einstein's relativity theory.
Think of what Pollack was saying about the exclusion zones, where the water lined up in formation along the container wall or chemical film. That is the same thing that happens to any Fluid along the wall of the container/pipe.
Miller did all of his work on the Earth. The highest elevation that he ran the experiment was 6,000 feet. I live at 7,000 feet. The mountains around me go above 10,000. None of that matters to the kind of experiment that he did, because he was still within that aether exclusion zone as long as he was close to the surface of the Earth.
The aether exclusion zone extends far out from the surface of the Earth. This is similar to when Eddington did the test of Einstein's theory of "Gravity Bending Light". What really happened is that the aether extends well out from the surface of the Sun in an exclusion zone, so when the light passed through that volume, it bent, just like light bends when it passes through a crystal globe.
When you watch the video, and listen to the Mercola interview, Pollack is constantly mentioning that the water in cells are all structured.
Look at the raked lines in the Zen garden.
You have straight lines running across the garden, and curved lines around the rocks. Michelson-Morley thought that aether was straight lines
They were trying to see the Earth moving through those straight lines, but they kept seeing the lines around the rocks instead, so they declared failure. They insisted on thinking rigid lines being crossed rather than the aether forming contour lines around objects.
If you look at the Solar System, even the Galaxy, think of the aether as being structured around the stars, planets, etc..., ordered like in a vast Zen Garden, where there are no straight lines, only curved rake lines around the various objects, just like Pollack describes how water is in the cells.
Remember, in contour lines, each line is a closed loop. There are no breaks. Here are some examples to play with from the Mathematica Demonstration Projects. No matter what they are modeling, they are using Fluid rules when they draw the contours. Look at all the Projects to get a sense of what I'm talking about, then watch the Pollack videos again, you will see the similarity. You are looking at plasma, you are looking at aether, you are looking at any Fluid.
