That would tell me Thanos has one of the stone himself (the Mind Stone) which he helped harness to give Loki that spear.
Someone said something about Red Skull obtaining a stone. That could come into play in C:TW if one of my Cap 2 theories is true in regard to Redford potentially being the Red Skull in disguise, ala Dell Rusk, happens. He very well could have a stone himself. If GotG introduces another Infinity Stone, then we definitely have 3, possibly 4, accounted for prior to AoU! I am thinking we're getting Thanos Quest basically!!!! All roads end with Thanos acquiring all the stones and becoming a god
Yeah you could say pretty much, in a sense, a lot of the movies have been Thanos Quest. Avengers was Thanos Quest. And GOTG was definitely going to be Thanos Quest.
I also don't think we can really match the Infinity Stones to the Infinity Gems. it's obviously not as clear cut as that. The fact the Aether is a fluid substance rather than an actual stone just shows how different these things are from the Infinity Gems. It's the same basic concept but it's different.
