Oatmeal Theory of Gravity

The following hypothetically describes how matter absorbs space to produce gravity.

Some elementary particles have reached maximum entropy (rest state) filling space in all directions. These entropies are like blankets on top of each other in layers. Each physical law we observe is obeying the requirements of these blankets.

The gravitation particle has reached its rest state in the (x,y,z,t). However, it has not reached its entropy in a dimension I call up. The up-direction corresponds to gravitational potential energy and intuitively away from matter. The up-coordinate=0 corresponds with the location where gravitational energy is distributed to other fundamental mechanisms.

Pressurized space flows into matter. This imbalance drives the other forces and observable time. We see time through the lens that is this thermodynamic process. Fundamental time has yet to be defined. For now I like to call it Grandfather Clock Time and it governs all. Thermodynamic time is a transformation upon the Grandfather Clock.

My notion of Thermodynamic Time, t = f (gravitational flux)

The relative net radial inward flux of space void per unit mass is directly proportional to the relative rate of aging of an object. The linear velocity of the flow is c, the speed of light. As an objects relative velocity approaches c, the relative net flux approaches 0. Zero relative net flux equals zero relative time passage for that object. Therefore, this idea concurs with Special Relativity.

b = Bobby's Constant = 1(second-up), local gravitational pressure head
G = Newton's Constant
flowrate per unit mass = (Q)/kg = bG = 6.67 x 10^(-11) (m^3)/(kg*s)


Closing Statement from B Ross

Gravitation is our substrate undergoing quantum tunnelling on its way to a lower energy state.

Black holes give this substrate and other material a path to this lower energy state.

Black holes give familiar matter (all things confined to thermodynamic interaction) sufficient kenetic energy to disassemble upon collisions. These particles disassemble within the black holes until the particle components are no longer required to adhere to classical mechanics.

The components break down until they have the degree of freedom allowing probabalistic mechanical behaviors to emerge. Once this degree of freedom is achieved, these components will "move" throughout the universe q-radiating and q-convecting while seeking entropy. I'll explain the q prefix shortly. Anyhow, this new degree of freedom allows the components to radiate and convect without being confined to macroscopic thermodynamics.

Macroscopic configurations of particles (MC) restrict degrees of freedom in physical systems and the emerging order is observed as classical mechicanics occurring as a function of "time".

Black holes strip away these complexities and leave particles free to traverse space and, more interestingly, time. So, q-radiation and q-convection happens and reorders the contents of the universe across time.

Q-convection is why the distant night sky is fairly homogenious and why the universe appears to be expanding.

If this is true, hawking radiation will be detectable from a black hole before it is a black hole.

    May 11 2013: I'm sure you know Albert Einstein's Cosmological Constant, a hypothesized repulsive force he presented and later called his greatest blunder (some say had he not pursued it he might well have established the idea of an expanding universe) was devised to allow his Gravitational Theory to predict a static, non-expanding universe; as of today it remains unsupported by evidence. Please falsify the hypothesis that Time is (merely) a unit-of-measure of Change. We need the concept of Time to measure Change. If nothing ever changed ( length, width, height, weight, position, velocity, etc.) there would be no need for Time. Your "Q" is a rate. A rate demands a Time measurement (per second, etc.). What is the Time measure for Q?

        May 11 2013: Understood sir. The term flowrate demands a quantity AND a time, i.e. gallons-per-minute. The gravitational constant does not specify a time measurement. Your equation [Q = bG = 6.67 x 10^(-11) (m^3)/(kg*s)] states the flowrate as kilograms-per-second? I do not see your path to that answer.

        May 11 2013: RE: "Stated differently. . . " In your post you use 6.67 x 10^(-11) (m^3)/(kg*s^2). Kilograms-per-second SQUARED! Whasssup?

        May 13 2013: So you see Dark Matter as supporting evidence for what Albert called his "greatest blunder", the Cosmological Constant? You are losing me (and that can be a good thing). Can you summarize your point here?

          May 14 2013: In summary, oatmeal theory needs a pressurized energy density and the cosmological constant corresponds to that. I guess its not what Einstein intended, but it works.

          I hypothesize that dark energy is analogous to the back flow of dark matter. This would reverse the process of gravitation where it was occurring. Assuming a cyclic scenario, It would mean either some strange local perturbation or passing of the "top-dead-center". Both scare me enough to that I need to think about something else.

    May 14 2013: This theory explains how gravitational time dilation is the same phenomena as velocity time dilation. It also explains how gravitational mass is equivalent to inertial mass.
