But what is aether, really?

Some special properties include

– not being detectable

– not interacting with other matter

– has a peculiar non-relativistic kinetic term (linear and not quadratic dependence on momentum)

An example is the time-of-arrival operator, à la Aharanov & Unruh. With additional uncertainty relation, this can be quantised!
