I am reading a Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics by Terry Gannon, ‘Moonshine beyond the Monster: The Bridge Connecting Algebra, Modular Forms and Physics’.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

On page 236 “... Space-time is not the vector space R^4, but rather a nontrivial (curved) four-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian manifold. Gravity is the convergence or twisting of nearby geodesics; what we perceive as the elliptical revolution of the Earth about the Sun is merely the gentle entwining of the Earth’s geodesic with the Sun's (Fig 4.3) ...” [the Earth has a helical trajectory about the sun].

This is remarkably similar ‘The Kinematic Origin of Complex Wave Functions” by David Hestenes, abstract:

“A reformulation of the Dirac theory reveals that i*h-bar has a geometric meaning relating it to electron spin. This provides the basis for a coherent physical interpretation of the Dirac and Schroedinger theories wherein the complex phase factor exp(-i*psi/h-bar) in the wave function describes electron zitterbewegung, a localized circular motion [“helical trajectory”, p6] generating the electron spin and magnetic moment. Zitterbewegung interactions also generate resonances which may explain quantization, diffraction, and the Pauli principle.”

This seems to suggest that gravity may be surprisingly similar in function to electromagnetism, although at a much different scale or gauge.

This appears to suggest a zitterbewegung relationship between the Earth and Sun with respect to gravity,
