The Different Levels of the Conditions of Existence

1-         Universe level unknown number of levels and extension, boundary if any
            [luminiferous aether; dark matter, dark energy, etc.]
2-         Galaxies in relation to one another: multiple cycles|revolutions|interactions [Also level 1]
3-         Milky Way Galaxy "orbital trajectory" spiraling throughout the galaxy/Universe;
             unknown if yet another level above this one [Also levels 2, 1]
4-         Internal galactic revolution of Milky Way, revolving on its four spiral arms,
            central axis [also levels 3, 2, 1]
5-         Solar system spiraling revolution within one of the arms of the Milky Way galaxy
            around the central axis of the Milky Way [also levels 4, 3, 2,1]
6-         Sun of our solar system on its own spiraling trajectory on its central axis
            [Also levels 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
7-         Sun rotating on its central axis [Also levels 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
8-         Earth revolving around the Sun [Also levels 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
9-         Earth rotating on its own central axis [Also levels 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
10-       Individual sitting/standing on the surface of the Earth
            [Also levels 9, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]

            Through the use of imaginary thought experiments based on levels 8, 9, and10 Einstein attempts to conclude that level 1 [luminiferous aether] does not exist. One may identify and analyze particular causal relationships among the different levels that are known to exist. However, the supposed existence of level 1, the spacetime/motion level in which all matter-energy in the Universe is apparently situated, localized, remains unknown to us. It is impossible to deduce its existence or non-existence as of smaller scale levels [8, 9, 10]. If anything, by analyzing the different levels of spacetime/motion known to exist, the analysis of smaller scale/size levels point to the existence of larger scale/size levels, and infinitely so.
            The word-concept "level" of conditions of existence is not to be confused with the relativist one about "reference frame" of matter-energy bodies "relative" to one another. The word-concept "reference frame" implies the word-concept "observer".
            A matter-energy event on Earth entails all of the movements cited on the above list. Any matter-energy event in the Universe shares similar/same number of movements. Hence, it is impossible to identify a matter-energy form as being "at rest". The use of the relativist concept of "at rest" does not and can not mean absolutely with regard to all levels of existence; rather it only relates to a particular selected reference frame of identified relationships.
            All of matter-energy events are in constant motion, constant spacetime/motion.
            At the second level cited on the list one may also identify other forms of matter-energy seen throughout the Universe, which are not galaxies. There are nebulae, stars, asteroids, comets, moons, etc. Each one has its own particular motion at that second level. For example, even the apparently stationary [at rest] stars in the sky are in motion, with respect to us [planet Earth] and with respect to the entire Universe.  
            Einstein with his theory of relativity is concerned with the measurement of observation of certain kinds of objects, those nearing the speed of light. However, in order to achieve that thought process, the relativist analysis is limited to two or three selected reference frames. The reference frames do not necessarily mean different levels of existence, but rather may be reference frames within a specific level.
Reference frames may entail observer|object; or, observer|object|observer; or, observer|object|observer|object; and so on, the possibilities are innumerable. The requirements for analyzing spacetime/motion are needed not only with regard to reference frames within one or two levels. An analysis is required for all levels, and all reference frames within each level, in relationship to each and every level.
The required spacetime/motion analysis is much more encompassing than the limited hypothetical view of an observer with respect to an object nearing the speed of light as of pre-selected reference frames.
            When Einstein references an individual on Earth, as he does in some of his examples, he limits that interpretation to a specific kind of motion/rest.  The motion of an object in relation to an individual on Earth is the minimum relationship possible: one-on-one.
            However, as may be observed from that level, an individual/object on Earth always enjoys multiple levels of motion simultaneously. In other words, although one may hypothetically say that the individual on Earth is at rest while the object observed nearing the speed of light is in motion, this represents simply an error in summarily conceptualizing spacetime/motion.
            An individual who is at relative rest with regard to an object nearing the speed of light is also always in motion him/herself. In fact, one may even count the levels of motion: Level 10- Individual sitting/standing on the surface of the Earth [Also levels 9, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1].  There are nine physical levels of motion that an individual living on the planet Earth has at all times, whether resting in bed or walking ---as far as we can count now. The individual on Earth does not share the rotational motion of the Sun.
            There is an additional level to all of the levels cited on the list above. This concerns the internal composition/aging of each matter-energy event: the internal composition of the galaxy, the internal composition of the Sun/star, the internal composition of the Earth; and the internal composition of the individual on the Earth's surface. The internal composition motion of our cells/atoms represents another level that must also be taken into consideration and denies any relational concept of being "at rest", even if we say this in relationship to other matter-energy events. The human body is in constant internal|external motion.
All matter-energy forms are in constant motion. There is no such thing in spacetime/motion such as being "at rest", being without relative [related] or non-relative [unrelated] motion. Even the supposed state where a form of matter-energy is at absolute zero temperature, where supposedly all motion has stopped, may be analyzed in this manner.
            Leftovers from a meal are sitting on the table at home. One must take into consideration that they are apparently "resting", not in motion. But, we know this not to be true, as the leftovers are decomposing without refrigeration. One might observe the leftovers as at relative rest, but one must know that their internal motion of decomposition may even be life threatening.
