I have a new theory of gravity that I would like to present. My theory goes like this:
Imagine that there is a field of some kind that exists throughout the Universe. Lets give this field a magnitude of 1 for simplicity. This field existed before matter condensed out of the expanding Universe. Now when matter finally did condense it interacted with the field. The interaction reduces the strength of the field, but does not eliminate it, within the vicinity of the matter to a value less than 1 but greater than 0, such that there is a net resultant force that acts in the direction of the matter. This net resultant force is what we call gravity. See diagram one in the attachment.
Now if two masses come close enough such that their fields overlap then the field strength in the area of overlap will be weaker than even the strength of the field in the vicinity of the two masses and the two masses will be drawn together. See diagram two in the attachment. This would apply to any number of masses. When there is no other mass nearby then objects float in the field without being drawn in one direction or another because the field gradient is equal all around the object.
In the vicinity of field overlap there would be a slight bulging of the masses because the strength of the field is not equal all around the masses as seen when the Moon pulls on the Earth and creates the tides.
