I have registered to this forum specifically to ask people more intelligent than me what is wrong with a number of theories, relationships and ideas I've arrived at. I unfortunately never entered tertiary schooling so I find myself asking these questions but not knowing whom to ask. Feel free to be brutal but any corrections or suggested reading would be greatly appreciated. 1. Higgs Boson/ The Gravity Particle: Going by what I know about gravity, all matter has a gravitational effect on all other matter, the effect lessening over distance. Although we haven't found the gravity particle yet and assuming every atom contains such a particle, is it rediculous to suggest that each particle is simultaneously travelling between every atom in the universe? Could this particle move between and be a part of every other atom, the dominant and binding force of the universe, the effects of which time is ultimately the measure of? An endless recurring force, expanding and contracting all matter in the universe, a naturally occurring and perfect perpetual motion machine? 2. Conciousness, self-awareness, gravity, evolution of the brain: We know human beings to have 5 senses that we have evolved over time, each one a way of measuring changes in energy in some way. Could then, self-awareness and the developing conciousness, be the brains way of measuring the effect of "a gravity particle"? As rediculous as it first sounds is this our sixth sense? Our slowly evolving way of interpreting our connection to the rest of the universe? Also, could it be possible that our memory is a record of the changes in energy we perceive, offset by the changes we interpret in gravity? This mass of data could then be processed by identifying recurring patterns and probabilities(learning), simplified by identifying rules governing the data (behaviour) and calculating new data by applying rules and assuming variables (knowledge).
