(I read and studied Carroll GR lecture notes, so everything at this level or below would be great.)

thanks

Dopy me...

search EMERGENT GRAVITY right here in the forums....LOTs of discussions,

here is one:

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=474303&highlight=emergent+gravity

Eric Verlinde has some cool stuff too

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=415011&highlight=loll

Also consider spin networks: in these models picture a geodesic dome......analogous to some prior home designs.....in the mathematical modesl, node points represent [space] volumes, edges (lines) represent [space] areas if I recall....what's the precise connection between space and gravity?? which comes first??

You might also consider Neil Turok and Paul Steinhardt's THE ENDLESS UNIVERSE where they discuss a cyclic universe where gravity powers brane kinetic energy....I forget what they have to say about the origins of each, if anything....

brief summary here:
