Iíve often heard it said that gravity is a very weak force, and that this weakness is a puzzle requiring an explanation. The fridge magnet is a favourite example used to demonstrate how much stronger the force of magnetism is than gravity.Yet the fridge magnet example says to me how very local the force of magnetism is, whereas by contrast gravityís influence stretches over colossal distances. Why then I wonder is the force of gravity widely regarded as puzzlingly weak?
I am not suggesting that the results would be exactly the same every time, If you re ran evolution on the earth the results would not be the same. What I am saying is that its not all that supprising that the results are finely balanced and depend on processes that recycle things or favour processes that extend the effective interaction time of the basic elements.quarks interact to create hadrons protons neutrons and electrons interact and recycle to create atomsStars use weak gravity to recycle to create more complex atomsAtoms interact to create chemistry etcThe fundamental process seems to be the recycling of universes them selves via black holessee Lee Smolin "life in the universe"
