Keywords: gravity, ether, light quanta.
The ether must exist -- since we can observe waves. The ether cannot be autonomous - if so it should have been discovered long time ago. Remains only ideas from Stokes and Petr Beckmann. The ether must in some way be dependent on the distribution of matter and dominated by the nearest material body. This means that the state of motion of the ether cannot be represented by a frame -- rather a field must be used.
Emission and absorption of light by a charged particle is related to exchange of energy with the ether. Therefore this energy must not be transported by light. Therefore, bound electrons can radiate without loosing energy.
