    Gravity
In summary, the conversation discusses the idea of the universe expanding and how this could potentially explain the concept of gravity. The individuals also consider the possibility of other factors, such as the inflation of atoms and empty space, playing a role in the development of gravity. They also suggest that there could be multiple hypotheses for understanding gravity, but it may be difficult to fully comprehend since we are within the reference point that creates it.

Useless crackpot obviously, but imo in a way funny twist.

Universe expands. ok, why not fundamental particles then?
Imagine that Earth inflates. You inflate, your atoms inflate. Empty space inflates. Two bodies in proximity would collide due to inflation, if empty space between them does not inflate as fast as bodies. Density of bodies is always bigger than of empty space, so they inflate faster. In close proximity this means unavoidable approach of bodies. Over vast distances, sheer amount of empty space between would turn approach into departure. Departure velocity proportional to distance.

Body itself would not perceive inflation, all local references infate too. What it will perceive is attraction only when close enough. Maybe even repulsion from empty space towards other body. Inflation rate related to obviously some fancy ratio of Planck and lightspeed.

Looks like could build quite some cosmology on that...

please don't kill

I change my mind there could be a million viable hypothesis on gravity not just a few hundred. So gravity could be something that we can't understand because we are within the reference point that creates it?
 

1. What is "Twisted thought on gravity"?

"Twisted thought on gravity" is a theoretical concept that suggests gravity may not be a fundamental force, but rather a result of the curvature of space-time caused by the presence of mass and energy.

2. How does this theory differ from the traditional understanding of gravity?

The traditional understanding of gravity is based on the idea that it is a fundamental force that acts between objects with mass. In the "Twisted thought on gravity" theory, gravity is instead seen as a result of the geometry of space-time.

3. What evidence supports the "Twisted thought on gravity" theory?

There is currently no direct evidence for this theory, as it is still a theoretical concept. However, it is consistent with Einstein's theory of general relativity and has been explored in various theoretical models and simulations.

4. How does the "Twisted thought on gravity" theory impact our understanding of the universe?

If proven to be true, the "Twisted thought on gravity" theory would fundamentally change our understanding of the universe and the laws of physics. It would also have implications for our understanding of other concepts such as dark matter and dark energy.

5. Are there any experiments being conducted to test this theory?

Currently, there are no specific experiments being conducted to test the "Twisted thought on gravity" theory. However, scientists are constantly exploring and testing different theories and models to better understand the fundamental forces of the universe, including gravity.
