As I've explained, those supposed (by you) zero- dimension points have diameter and a "stack" height probably about 1/4 of the diameter. Being energy instead of matter there is a slight ability to distort when meeting other photons or tiny dust specks in space, without deviation from the line of travel. Oh, one photon can be deviated, alright, but the train of photons keeps the effective course of the many trains straight. Flowing-ether-caused course deviations near massive objects are the exception. Even though the lines in polarizing filters and diffraction gratings are tiny, the electrical fields extending beyond those lines makes the "window of passage" even narrower. Photons, hitting, say, water at a low angle of incidence will skip like rocks on a pond and all will become polarized. With ordinary light, the photons tumble randomly. That doesn't prevent "hobo ether" from getting caught inside of these conveyor belts and being transported back out into space. I know that that process isn't a perfect means of transport, however, because most of the hobo ether falls out of the train relatively close to the massive object. If it didn't fall out, there would be no mass- proportional ether pool to keep the forces of gravity working. Thank "God" the hobo ether... jumps train! ? NoEinstein ?
