I don't understand why it is that the nuclear forces only apply at subatomic distances. If it is the case that they only apply at subatomic distances then surely that must be because the force has decayed over distance much the same as gravity does. Thus my hypothesis that en masse the nuclear forces create gravity. This is my first post here and i didn't really know where to put this question so feel free to move it. I've probably just spoken a load of nonsense but i just pondered this and i hoped you guys might have some thoughts.
