Quote from: Cincy_Joe on February 15, 2007, 00:36:00The force of 'Gravity' is actually 2 forces interacting with each other to produce the effect of attraction. Here's how it goes...A planet causes space-time to curve based on the amount of mass it has. The more mass the more of a curvature it has on space-time.So, why does mass cause space-time to curve or stretch? Simple, try this experiment. Get a bowl of milk and put 2 Cheerios in the milk and put them close togeather. Watch what happens. As you will see the 2 Cheerios attract each other mysteriously. The same is happening between massive objects such as planets, comets, and stars.The curving of space itself is caused when mass creates a tension on space. And since space is energy too, and much-much-much less dense than matter, then space will spread this tension out a certain distance until the tension balances out with the rest of space-time.This mysterious attraction is caused when the surrounding milk "film" has more density than the space between the Cheerios. Look closely at a cheerio in the milk. See how the film wraps around the cheerio itself and spreads out until it's balanced with the rest of the milk's film? This action 'Gravity' is no more than equilibrium in action.Now since the space between the 2 Cheerios is less dense due to the strecthing caused by the tension on the 'film', the surrounding 'film' in the bowl will push the 2 Cheerios togeather because like a trampoline, space-time is always trying to balance itself out therefore giving the illusion of a mysterious force we interpret as gravity.Are we clear so far?With this information, we can build anti-gravity devices. If you'd like I can show a modified version of someone else's idea. The only downsides is that the device needs a lot of power and radiation concerns (Don't worry, no toxic waste will be used or produced while operating this AGD (Anti-Gravity Device)).

Quote from: CFTraveler on January 17, 2007, 11:58:07My opinion why gravity works is because space is not an empty lack of something, but something in itself, that has a structure. Sort of (or maybe not) like the old concept of ether. So it can be bent, spindled, and mutilated.
Quote from: SpiritWings on April 17, 2007, 11:58:49OK, I've read some ideas thrown around this (in books and elsewhere), here's my guess at what gravity is:Instead of imagining space as "empty", and matter as "solid", try reversing the process. Imagine space is a continuous fluid, and "matter" is a disturbance in the placid, endless ocean of space, similar to air bubbles in a soda can.Each energy disturbance, known as an "atom", pushes the space outwards. But since space is already "endless", it can't get any bigger. So it attempts to "crush" this disturbance to restore the placid order. A bigger disturbance causes a bigger reaction from the space pool. When it gets to a certain level of supernova, it reaches a point where the mass can hold back the pressure no more, forms a black hole, and shrinks into a singularity. A gravity field can be seen as a spacial "repair zone" to restore/offset-to the placid state. It diminishes the further away one gets from the object.Every action requires a reaction, so gravity could be seen as the reaction to the action of spacial distortion.
Quote from: MisterJingo on April 17, 2007, 13:15:58This does sound interesting, but it doesnt account for the one property of gravity that is every object in the universe has an attraction to every other object - not just those in it's immediate area (of disturbance). So right at this instant me and you has a gravitational attraction (although it would be so minute as to be insignificant).
Quote from: CFTraveler on April 19, 2007, 12:58:35Why? It seems to me that any disruption or ripple would affect everything in the medium, regardless of distance. The effects would be tiny, but it still would exist. Unless I'm not understanding what you mean.

Quote from: CFTraveler on April 19, 2007, 18:18:45OK I have an idea. What if what we call space has all the properties of 'nothingness' but is actually the antithesis of some sort of virtual something, again in the tradition of entangled particles (space is empty but anti-space is the opposite of empty) and the reason that gravity is instantaneous is because antispace exists nonlocally(therefore takes no time to propagate), but interacts with space, affecting it in the same way that virtual particles interact?Just give me time, I'll make it make sense...
