Just wondering how do we know for sure that gravity is an attractive force and not a repulsive force that repels matter and is part of the space vacuum and time is actually linked to matter and not space.Would the universe be any different. [?]
if the repulsive force is equal from all directions, they would remain stationary.

It would then mean that an external Gravitational compression or force would then be the binding force and not any attraction from an (as yet) unfound and undetected gravity force in the atom.
