The ball bounces instantaneously consistent with my equation, Al! |

Actually, it doesn't, Newt. My equation indicates that the ball bounces at the finite speed of light. |

Brothers! Brothers! Let there be noanimosity between men of the cloth. Tension is as instantaneous as it gets. Tempers can get as tight as this rope. Perhaps there are no balls in relativity. |

Here we see two objects, eachcomprised of 4 H-atoms or apples. An H-atom is bound to each atom in the Universe by a single rope. In this system, there are two objects, made of |

The number of 'effective'EM ropes converging on an H atom is a function of distance from the object. |

Here we see an atom which forms apart locations with respect to Earth. The number of 'effective' ropes converging on this atom increases instantaneously the closer the featheris to our planet. The effect is instantaneous because it is a function of angles and not of traveling. |

We replace the mathematical factor (mass1 * mass2) in Newton's gravi- tational equation with two physical objects separated by distance. Now we are doing Physics and will be able to explain scientifically why Newton's equation works. (i.e., We will be able to make a movie of two objects gravitationally attracting each other instantaneously, meaning in each frame of the film.) |

4 atoms each for a total of 8 atoms, and 16 ropes interconnecting them. The 16 ropesprovide the physical significance of the expression (mass * mass) in Newton's gravita- tional equation. (The special case where there are only two lonely units of mass is beyond the scope of this website.) |

Notes:1. The reasons and logic behind some of the definitions and assumptions entertained herein (e.g., 'effective ropes', unit of mass, how the ropes avoid tangling) are beyond the scope of this page as are some of the claims I make. Therefore, it would be unreasonable for a skeptic to hope to understand the entire rope model of gravity by merely reading the material on this page. The purpose of this page is limited to providing an overview of the theory.2. At the bottom of the page, I have included a couple of figures to aid in the visualization of Newton's equation.

We now superimpose Fig. 2 on Fig. 1.We are looking at ONLY four units of mass of each object. The objects are in reality bound by gazillions of invisible EM ropes that interconnect all their atoms. |
