How does physics explain the graviton?

Vern - You're obviously talking about your Photonic Universe theory. I don't really understand that yet so I can't formulate an opinion.

When I said that I don't think gravity & the other forces can be unified I was meaning in the context of currently accepted theories. Of those that I've heard, the braneworld scenarios make the most sense to me and I just added my own little bit of nonsense.

I certainly do not preclude the possibility that there is another way of describing the universe that can unify all of the forces.

Yes; it is difficult to keep that concept from sneaking in there; I'll try to avoid that.:)

No need to avoid it so long as you accept that some others don't understand it and hence cannot pass comment on it.

I will always say that I am speculating when writing about something that is not part of current scholastic thinking.
