What is Gravity made of ?

I saw an interesting question on the Big Question blog tonight:

Q: What is gravity made out of?

A: Gravity is made of mass. No mass. No gravity.

Mass has a natural affinity for mass. The attraction works in much
the same way that tiny bubbles in a liquid (the medium) tend to merge
into larger bubbles — with the difference being that the medium of
gravity is the vacuum that exists in both the atomic centre and in all
intervening distances between elemental masses, which, to an atom,
are indistinguishable from the vacuum of space. The concentric layers
of the atomic structure maintain a state of separation between the
internal and external vacuums creating an interactive ‘anti-medium’
which facilitates and exposes the observed ‘attractive’ mass effect.

In a somewhat wry, McLuhan-esque way: The medium is the massage.

Why the LHC won’t help us find the “god particle”

pr_06The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, was designed to create the same sort of high energy conditions that were present during the so-called “Big Bang”. Among the mysteries that Team LHC hopes to unravel: Revealing the nature of the theoretical substances known as “Dark Energy” and  “Dark Matter”; confirming the existence of the Higgs Boson (or “god particle”) as predicted by the Standard Model of quantum mechanics; and determining which, if any, of the current Grand Unification Theories is correct.

With respect to the Higgs Boson (the quantum particle thought to be responsible for giving atoms their mass) as well as with much respect to Dr. Higgs, I have a problem with the concept of a quantum “god particle”. My objection has little to do with the sacrilege of the name (offered by Leon Lederman in his 1993 popular science book), but rather the notion that one particular subatomic component can be responsible for all the mass of the unity to which it belongs.

There are two absolute states of unity in the universe: the atom (chiefly represented by hydrogen) which will endure indefinitely if sequestered from the transformative traumas of fission and fusion; and the universe itself (which has reportedly been around for a very, very long time). In between these absolutes exist myriad aggregations of matter displaying varying degrees of unity, mass, homogeneity and permanence: from planets, comets, stars and galaxies, to the seeming singularity of “black holes” — but each of these is simply echoic of our atomic and universal archetypes.

From everything I’ve read (never having had the pleasure of meeting the man) Peter Higgs seems to be a learned, conscientious physicist and a bona fide gentleman. This does not, however, vaccinate him against ever having a bad idea.

So, it has to be said:   The mass of the atom comes from the functional structure of the atom itself, not from a theoretical subatomic particle. Simply put, the atom is the “god particle” — and so is the Universe.

Keep up to date on LHC activities at CERN.

An Order of Pi on the (dark)Side

dE : dM = π : 1

dE = darkEnergy; dM = darkMatter

NASA Pi Chart?

NASA Pie Chart (dE, dM, m)

Note: This is seemingly true only because of the widespread misperception that the universe is expanding, and because of our failure to see galactic field integrity as a critical factor in the system’s rotational momentum, with the poles of the field being defined by the orientation of its Hawking ex-vortices and its “dark” mass being distributed according to each galaxy’s interaction with its neighbours.

Current NASA data tallies roughly 73%/23%/4%, respectively (see “pi” chart).

As data collection, comparison and amalgamation grow ever more precise, the numbers should shake out like this (rounded to 0.0000):

dE = 72.7131…%

dM = 23.1453…%

m = 4.1416…%

(Given as % of all gravitationally-affective materials/forces.)
Note that mass totals [π+1]% of the sum of itself, dE & dM.

If dE and dM really existed, this would actually be cool!
