Theory that Gravity is an Illusion of Living in an Exploding

Universe

by Tom Lynch, 1997 04 10

Expanding Particles

Given the following two postulates:

1. That each and every particle in the universe is expanding.

2. Without an external force, all particles remain on their current path, as described by Newton and

Einstein.

It follows that we can not build a ruler that is also expanding. When using a ruler that is expanding at

the same rate inertial particles are expanding, the net effect is that we observe using our expanding

ruler that particles of constant size approach each other until they collide.

Consider the following analogy. Suppose that two balloons are placed above gas helium bottles being

filled. So initially we have the following picture:

Figure 1: Expansion level at time t0

I have added a ruler above the bottles. Each balloon measures one unit across on the ruler. The

distance between the balloons is two units.

Now consider the picture at time t1 where the balloons and the ruler have doubled in size:

Figure 2: Expansion level at time t1

The balloons used to measure one unit across on the ruler, and they still do because the ruler has

expanded at the same rate. Note however, as the balloons have doubled in size, the distance between

them is only ¼ of what it used to be. The distance between the balloons using our expanded ruler is

now one half unit. The centers of the balloons have not moved.

Had we scaled the picture so that one unit on the ruler was a constant size on the paper, we would have

witnessed that two balloons started two units apart, and they maintained their size but came closer

together under some magical force of attraction.

A Circular Universe Explanation

No explanation for the expansion is required for the theory to be an postulated model for gravity;

however, interesting explanations avail themselves. For example it could be that every particle or point

of space in the Universe is expanding because the most fundamental element in the Universe is the

Universe itself, and the Universe is expanding. I.e. in the very small one begins to view the very large.

A similar explanation would be that of a recursive universe, i.e. a universe made of particles

undergoing their own big bangs.
