"The tiny region confining the electron even as it moves is in effect a quantum
This is how science talks about the observable Aether without admitting it exists. They simply change the name. Other examples of observable and manipulable Aether are "magnetic field," "electric field," "gravitational field," "spin," "phonon," and "frame dragging." There are even more examples.
How is it that science claims the Aether cannot exist, and yet they describe the properties of "tiny regions" that can remain static and also move?
Also, notice how they can create longitudinal waves with these "tiny regions." Acoustic waves are longitudinal waves. Longitudinal waves can only occur in a medium of some sort. That medium is the Aether.
