Garbage can be generated, even by a computer program.
Indeed. What I was trying, in a very roundabout way, to say earlier is that alot of the 'new theories' regarding gravity are simply an expression of befuddlement. That there is an urge to want to understand gravity in a very simple form, one that can be visualised within a simple three-dimensional paradigm.
"Push" theories are debunked by some on the grounds of implied momentum loss. But if there is no known mechanism, how can momentum loss be assumed for it and not equally to "pull" theories? If particles are involved, what are their properties, if waves, what form do they take and momentum would they impart ? Has what is being pushed or pulled been sufficiently defined, since mass becomes defined as energy in some physics. de-bunking must surely take all possibilities into account, not just those assumed by the critic.
If g is zero, then mgh is zero. So it would seem that it (g) would be the only candidate for the provision of energy for an unchanging mass accelerating in a gravitational field from an arbitrary 'height'. That is not to say in which sense 'g' operates, except that it seems unlikely to originate in the masses affected by it.
Let's look at potential energy. E(P).E(P) = mgh (Mass * value of g * height
How does one find old threads?
I wish you'd update your profile.
And I see you follow EVERYTHING.
We've got another machine operated poster?

That there is an urge to want to understand gravity in a very simple form, one that can be visualised within a simple three-dimensional paradigm.In my case it wasn't befuddlement; I was simply examining an old hypothesis, that I suspect, originated with Maxwell. Hypothesis: The final irreducible constituent of all physical reality is the electromagnetic field.I put together a hypothesis about gravity, but it wasn't the urge to understand more about gravity. I was trying to solve the puzzle of whether it is possible to describe all the forces of nature within the electromagnetic field, using no other concept.It turns out that it is possible to do that. Within that concept, gravity can be the result of photon's reaching saturation amplitude within the fields of other photons. The points of saturation are offset toward increasing field strength.
