I was thinking a bit about gravity. As is known, Physicists have yet been unable to unify the Theory of Relativity (describing gravity) and Quantum Theory (decribing the other three fundamental forces).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As mass is a measure of a system's energy, the force of gravity (presumably carried by gravitons), increases for that system as it's mass increases.

Knowing that mass and gravitational strength are directly proportional, could it be safe to assume that gravity is quanta of mass that is attracted in a larger degree by more massive objects (though still attracted by less massive objects).

Let us examine a system containing a larger mass and a smaller mass.

The quanta of mass (gravitons) would therefore be removed from the smaller mass by the larger mass, while simultaneously the smaller mass removes an equal magnitude of gravitons from the larger mass, creating a sort of ''gravitational equilibrium'', whenre no net mass is lost by either object.

The greater mass is not accelerated as largely because it has a higher mass, and therefore requires a larger force to accelerate it to the same degree as the smaller mass.

The interaction between the objects would create a force of attraction between them, as the proximity of the gravitons to their parent object would be stronger the closer they are to said object. Therefore the more gravitons removed from the smaller mass, the greater the proximal force of attraction.

And since the force of gravity increases with the mass of an object, this explains why there is a larger acceleration of the smaller object when the larger object's mass increases (more gravitons are removed from the smaller mass, which have a greater net proximal force of attraction on the smaller mass).

Now, this begs the question: Why do the two bodies become more suitable when in closer proximity to each other?

The answer would be that there would be a smaller distance for the gravitons to travel between the constituent particles of the two objects, therefore more energy is conserved.
