The following is a theory offering a rationalization of the characteristics of gravity. ‘Nothingness’ can be defined as nonexistence which is not entirely true. ‘Nothing’ can exist between two points of any positive distance apart. The distance is measurable which serves to prove this line of reasoning. Gravity is the reaction of space to the existence of matter. If space or ‘nothing’ is both cohesive and existential, gravity can be understood. The crux of the theory is that space cannot coexist with matter at a coordinate. Space must be pushed aside for matter to exist. Further, gravity is much like the pressure water exerts on an object at a certain depth. As water pressure varies with depth, so too does gravity vary with the volume of space displaced. This also explains why the density of an object determines the gravitational force surrounding it. If one were to place a volume of iron in an amount of water, the volume of water displaced would be greater when compared to that of a sponge of the same volume in a like amount of water. This analogy illustrates why there is a greater gravitational field surrounding relatively denser objects. Gravity is not a property of matter. Gravity is a property of space which also explains why this force has an effect beyond the dimensions of matter. I welcome any comments..
