    Hello to everyone

    Did Newton prerdict that velocity played a role in antigravity or weight loss phenomenon?

    Thank you

    I'm confused. Are you referring to Isaac or Wayne?

    Perhaps you could provide some backgound information to help us help you. Do you have reason to believe that Newton had anything to say about antigravity? If he did I have never heard of it.

    No he didnt.

    I read a reply from J-Man to Petrus dated 1/5/03 reguarding the General theory on antigravity and J-Man tells Petrus that he has "renamed a phenomenon that has been predicted by Newton". That is why I was asking because I had never heard of such a thing my self. I own the book Philosophiae Natturalis Principa Mathematica, by Sir Isaac Newton and if I missed him talking antigravity I wanted to know what page it was on. Sorry for all of the confusion and thank you for your time and opinion.
