I placed this thread in new theories because firstly it is purely speculative and secondly it has no mathematics associated with it. This is definitely not the same as your ideas

This is definitely not the same as your ideas I was not sure what you meant. It just brought to mind the gravitational field spacing. Although the Heisenberg distance is valid for common photonic energy levels, the gravitational field energy levels is extremely low and Heisenberg would most likely not be the correct answer. Sorry for misinterpreting your post.

I have just found a site discussing C Alden Mead's paper "Possible Connection Between Gravitation And Fundamental Length" and a link to the abstract of the paper. Both are below.

Imagine two tangents on a geodesic at a distance from each other. Now as we slide one of the tangents along the line element towards the other one at what point have we reached an interval that can be defined as a minimum distance? Meaning that below this distance we would have a truly straight line and not a segment of a curve. This is like saying the portion of the line element between graviton interactions. So that the mass is in an inertial frame at that point and experiences no acceleration. In other words can we define a granularity of the line element?

Using the Schwarzschild metric the velocity of a circular orbit can be calculated fromv = sqrt[{GM}/{r-r_{s}}]where r is radial distance of the orbit, rs is the Schwarzschild radius and r > rs.If we set c as equal to the circumference of this orbit then the time for one complete revolution is c/v. We can then set a constant value for time and then determine the arc length traversed during this interval. So we then haves = vtAlong this length we will find a field density that relates to the velocity. As the radial distance from the source increases this length reduces. As a consequence the path becomes increasingly flat. This means that spacetime curvature can be neglected. However we can still define a perfectly valid circular orbit. In this case along the length s we can safely say that a force may be absent. We cannot then argue that a force is not present as we approach the source mass. Whatever general relativity says. Since we have an increasing orbital acceleration that relates to the position in the field with respect to the source mass. As shown above this acceleration can be treated as entirely absent at large enough radial distance with respect to s.
