What one gets for the "aether" depends, of course, on the model one starts with.


One thing is certain:  Empty space does contain incredible energy density, as experimentally demonstrated (e.g., by the Casimir effect, the Lamb Shift, and every source charge in the universe).


For practical purposes, the real sore point is the complete avoidance by classical Maxwell-Heaviside electrodynamics and electrical engineering of the source charge problem: i.e., the problem of the source charge and its associated EM fields and potentials.  Today they hide that embarrassing problem so thoroughly that even many of the professors do not recognize that it's a problem.  Basically they just teach that "every charge has associated with it, its potentials and fields that it creates."  So BANG!  Every EM field and potential and their energy just is supposed to leap forth merely because suddenly we have a charge sitting there.  Actually, one can experimentally show that producing the charge results in a steady and continuous outpouring of real, observable EM energy in all directions, expanding at light speed outwards.  Further, one can show that there is no observable EM energy input to the charge at all.


So either classical electrodynamics has completely falsified the conservation of energy law, or else that model has to be changed and extended to allow the input of VIRTUAL photon energy from the vacuum, being transduced by the source charge into real observable EM energy and outpoured continuously.


Otherwise, one advocates what conventional electrodynamics and electrical engineering professors, departments, and texts presently advocate unwittingly: That every EM field,  potential, and joule of EM energy in the universe was and is freely created from nothing at all, by the associated source charge(s).

Dr. Bearden:
The speed of light C is controlled by the permeability (u) and the permittivity (e) of space, characteristics that are determined by the density of the aether which occupies all of space from inter-galactic to intra-atomic.  When a dielectric is introduced in the light path C is reduced by the the inverse of the square root of the relative dielectric constant (E_r) of that dielectric. 
My point is this:  If the aether fills the intra-atomic spaces of a dielectric, then when some dielectric is introduced we have not replaced the aether but have, instead, effectively placed additional dielectric material in the space already occupied by the aether.  Therefore, when Teflon, having an E_r of about 2, is placed in the light path it has simply doubled the E_r of the aether alone, meaning that the Teflon possesses the same E_r as the aether, and that the two together merely add their E_r's.
If this is true, should not one be able to conclude that the aether in that common space has characteristics comparable to the Teflon?  I.e., its' (effective) density would seem to be the same, at least, and perhaps its mass.(?)  This same study if carried out with other dielectrics and analyzed in the light of the characteristics of those dielectrics should prove interesting.    
In any event, the characteristics found for the aether in the common volumes of these tests would be true for the aether everywhere, with the aether thus becoming a massive part of our environment, and presumably having the potential to do wondrous things, if we can actually tap it as you and others seems to be accomplishing.  
In my studies I've concluded that your "seething vacuum", or the "aether" (or whatever other name it may ro by) is pure energy, that which was generated from mass by the stars of the Universe and which will eventually be re-converted back into mass, thence to continue an eternal cycling, at an efficiency of 100%.
