Seriously, what the fuck is the Aether?

I understand that there are a multitude of layers of understanding needed to comprehend metaphysics and the EWS, but what exactly does that mean? By that, I am referring to the existence of aforementioned Aether. Can everything really just be broken down to waves and particles? Can we control that? I am not asking what is right, I want to know what isn't wrong.
