New book called the "final theory" seeks to debunk some issues with the unique force called "gravity" and seeks to explain a new "atomic model".
It says it is derived from Einsteins "space elevator" thought experiment (which discourses the effects of gravity as a change in acceleration and also starts into a theory of warped spacetime) and "Flatland" (a book I read in Geometry class that opens your mind to the metaphors that exist between various dimensions and their [virtual] inhabitants). I imagine they will have the "Ant Race on a Donut [or toroid]" analogy too. It seems to me that there is an "invisible direction/dimension" which we can't move into but which things affected by gravity move into. It also seeks to clarify time vs energy.
I am seeking to compare this to the "John Titor" predictions that there are indeed N10 (six curled Calabi-Yao dimensions) dimensions (insomuch that this is the truer theory than the N11 one) and the prediction that time is altered by gravitational areas and zones.
I am very interested in the thoughts about Gravitational Lensing, the speed limit of gravity (some tell me it is the same as light and others say it isn't), and I'm also curious as to how there is a formation of blue stars (blue light) in the center of Andromeda given that it is hard for stars to form around it's black hole.
The idea that gravity is not a force at all is well defended. a) we can shield all other forces but gravity. b) what kind of force gets to accelerate anything regardless of mass. IOW, why does gravity get to have an infinite amount of force (Force = mass times acceleration) but gravity accelerates all masses the same...even very large ones and that means a very large object can pull on something very very far away and a very large number of things. So where does all this "force" come from? Why is there "so much of it?".
Another mystery is the quanta ideas and wave particle duality. ie: how come electrons get to jump from shell to shell without "travelling" there or passing between? But then what about uncertainty principle? What about the mysterious Bose-Einstein condensates and ZEF and virtual particles outside of Black Holes? Will all that be explained?
