Ok, I am not a physicist or a mathematician. I'm more of a philosopher, because its the only discipline people who are broke can afford and still be good at. Still, I had a puzzling thought the other day, and I was wondering if at least the concept held some water. Please feel free to burn away, since none of it is mathmatically based. What if a particle were not 'solid', but was rather a energy bubble highly focused due to a point of convergence (POC) at its center, which is actually the source. It would almost act as a vacuum at the center of all particles to make a spherical energy field that is too focused for other energy fields (also particles) to penetrate. This would mean that matter was only a vast network of energy fields, or bubbles, drawn together by multiple POCs creating a gravitational force. The denser the object is, the larger the number of POCs, and thus the greater the gravity. My thinking behind this is; since gravity is a force exerted by one mass upon another, where each mass tries to reach the center of the other (atomic cohesion, gravity, etc.). Where else could this force come from, save the center of the particle? Much like matter rushes into a vacuum, energy seeks to return to the source at its center, yet when it breaks its wave it runs into itself and creates a spherical field. To me, this seems more logical in explaining why individual bodies have gravity rather than the curve of space. Indeed, it would explain the curve of space, as well as the big bang. In my mind, I kind of picture it like a very large, perfectly flat bed sheet (5th dimension), where you drop billions of ball bearings on it (intrustions into 1-4th dimensions). The dimples represent how this dimension becomes matter, and the billowing represents how it becomes energy. Lemme know if this has some merit, or if I'm smoking crack.
