Gravity and Bose-Einstienian statistics

    Gravity and Bose-Einsteinian statistics

    I was wondering if it is possible to introduce the concept of macro-particles (any stable system of matter composed of fermions and bosons in such a way that it has an overall net charge of zero, and overall spin of 1). This would include all the elements, therefore any ammount of them in any configuration even when individual molecules or atoms could be ionic, there should be other ones that are oppositely ionic to the extent that the overall ionic charge of the system is negligable compared to the mass of the system. So this would also include the earth, the moon, the sun, the solar system, the galaxy, galaxy clusters, and so on. If we could simply use Bose-Einsteinian statistics on these "macro-particles" then is there a way to incorporate a correcting factor into the mix to describe gravitational effects? Since there is no limit on the scale of stable system, this would sort of be a fractal based model.

    (just throwing seeds)

    I can already see a problem, that not all "macro-particles" have the same mass.
