Pushing Gravity Theories
PUSHING GRAVITY THEORIES
I learned about pushing gravity when my son David asked me to help with a gravity experiment. The theory used was Le Sage’s theory, where there were very small particles coming at us from all directions. Most of them passed through us, but a few interacted and causes us to move by pushing.
Since there is no direct evidence showing a gravity particle and how it causes an object to move, I had admit that there were other possibilities. One of these is the Electromagnetic theory of gravity. I am in the process of finishing a report developed by Paul Schroeder, Arde Ramthun, and myself. It explains some
of the properties of an EM wave that makes it possible to be a pushing theory of gravity.
What about General Relativity? The model for this theory uses a heavy ball on an elastic sheet. As the
ball rolls around on the sheet, the sheet bends. The model suggests that gravity is caused by an object moving through space-time and causing space-time to bend.
Bending is a mechanical action. For example: Take a pencil in your both of your hands and bend it. The
fingers are on one side while the thumbs are on the other side. To bend the pencil, your fingers push down while the thumbs push up. So bending space-time is a pushing theory.
WHICH THEORY IS RIGHT?
Since there is no direct evidence showing how gravity moves objects, then all options are on the table, even if some of them are close to the edge.
Are there other pushing theories of gravity?
