Part of the vagueness in the brief post about how the ether model deals with thermodynamics is due to the fact that there's a lack of interest and research into the question of whether an ether could exist.
You misinterpret the situation. There is a lack of interest and research into the question of whether an ether could exist, because in over 100 years of research into the building blocks of the Universe, not a single hint has ever pointed to the existence of ether.
with mountains of research and theories/hypotheses that have been done, entirely based on the quantum model.
You forgot to mention "and confirming, the quantum model."
So while it would be interesting to discuss how the ether model could be extended to questions like cosmic forces and cosmic bodies, at present my basic ether model has gotten so little recognition, it seems a pointless effort.
Well, I'm puzzled how a failed hypothesis could be extended to questions of cosmic forces and cosmic bodies, when it has not been shown to have any relevance to any part of physics? What cosmic forces and cosmic bodies are you even referring to? Could you be any more vague?
An interesting discussion, by definition, has to be interesting
