My question has to do with gravity on an atomic level. This question is for those of you familiar with trying to combine all four natural forces.

First these are a few things I understand to be true:

1 Gravity is the weakest of the 4 natural forces.

2 The current problem with the unified field theory is combining all 4 forces into one equation.

3 We can currently combine strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force, and electromagnetism into one equation.

4 Gravity is actually the result of a body of mass bending space-time.

My question is this…

Is space-time elastic and if so does it have a critical mass needed to bend it?

For instance if a bowling ball or a cannon ball is set on a trampoline, the trampoline will bend. But, if a grain of sand is set on a trampoline it will not bend the material. Could this example parallel real space-time? A star has enough mass to curve space-time, while and atom or a particle does not. I believe that if this is the case, that a lot of the problems due to using gravity on an atomic level would be solved.

This may not be a new idea. I have not the foggiest. Please lead me to any research already done on the subject or give me your own expertise on the subjuct.

Thank you,
