Is what we know as gravity actually the resultant force of two opposing forces? The equation would be akin to: Fb - Fs = g. That is Force 'b' - Force 's' equals 'g' gravity. We might not be seeing the true picture when we try to explain gravity. It also holds out hope that were we able to increase Fs, we would decrease g. It may be why we measure gravity as a weak force, but widespread. The key then would be to recognize what generates Fs and what generates Fb and manipulate them to our advantage.
"The pushing out force was clearly established by Henry Cavendish over 200 years ago."Cavendish demonstrated a force pulling things together.He didn't have anything massless to work with (and we still don't).
I doubt he would have been able to observe anything moving at "6.67x10−9 metres per second".
Is Gravity a resultant force from two opposing forces?
The way I see it, the force of gravity is the end result of an extremely slow accretion of matter particles ...
... The theory proposed a mechanical explanation for Newton's gravitational force in terms of streams of tiny unseen particles ... impacting on all material objects from all directions. According to this model, any two material bodies partially shield each other from the impinging corpuscles, resulting in a net imbalance in the pressure exerted by the impacting corpuscles on the bodies, tending to drive the bodies together. This mechanical explanation for gravity never gained widespread acceptance, although it continued to be studied occasionally by physicists until the beginning of the 20th century, by which time it was generally considered to be conclusively discredited.
I like RD's diagram of the forces at work.
a major problem for every Le Sage model is the energy and heat issue. As Maxwell and Poincaré showed, inelastic collisions lead to a vaporization of matter within fractions of a second
