What says that... we roll around a curvature falling into the sun?
what says we are not hanging off the sun rolling around an ''ant hill''?
Quote from: TheboxWhat says that... we roll around a curvature falling into the sun? Sit a bowling ball on a rubber sheet, and it makes an indentation. Roll a marble past this indentation, and it will be deflected towards the bowling ball, and could (temporarily) take on something that looks like the orbit of a comet or planet around the Sun. If the marble starts off within the indentation, with a low enough velocity, it will remain within the indentation.This is the image of a "gravitational well", which is sometimes used as a 2D analogy when introducing the concepts of Einstein's Special Relativity. This imagery only works because we all grew up in a gravitational field, where bowling balls have weight, and will deflect a rubber sheet downwards. Similarly, a marble will tend to accelerate towards lower parts of the rubber sheet, under the influence of Earth's gravity.In this "gravitational well" model, Earth's immense gravity is attracting the marble towards itself, providing the illusion that the bowling ball has a significant mass which attracts the marble.Quotewhat says we are not hanging off the sun rolling around an ''ant hill''?Now, if you invert the image, and push a bowling ball up from underneath a rubber sheet, you will form something like an anthill. But if you roll a marble past such a hill, it will not divert towards the bowling ball, but away from it. No matter how slow or how close you roll a marble, it will end up infinitely far from the peak of the hill.This alternative "anthill" model does not describe gravitational attraction or planetary motion at all, as it suggests that the Sun would repel all planets. So, while some parts of Earth sometimes seem like an anthill, the Solar System is not (yet) an anthill.
Take a marble and attach it to a string, (gravity) , and rotate the string at a velocity, the marble will rotate around your legs below your head (sun).
So I am wondering:Why should you draw the diagram with a cone, instead of a funnel? Because all ''spherical'' type objects in rotation/spinning have these dynamics. Could this diagram be confused with the concept of "light cones"?no. its the images that came in to my head when I did the physics.Why should a pair of cones become a wormhole in a gravitational field as "weak" as the Sun's (it's not a black hole, for example)C.o.m, the tips/points of the cones are at the c.o.m, only the north and south , the vertical asymptotes have a ''centripetal'' force, the rest of the volume of the sphere is under ''centrifugal'' force, the electrons flow is a curvature directional to the north or south, And what does a "wormhole" mean, in this context?disks/layers[/list]
