Is it possible that gravity, is a persistent illusion, created by the constant expansion of mass in the universe?
I formulated this theory while reading Einsteins Theory of General Relativity, in which he suggests that it is at least possible that the earth is expanding at 9.9 meters per second squared, and we would have no way of telling the difference between that, and objects being pulled by gravity towards the earth at 9.9 meters per second squared.
He never refutes this theory, merely suggests relativity, the idea that it is impossible for a human being to tell the difference... This has troubled me for quite some time, because, if gravity doesn't exist, and is merely a persistent illusion... this would explain so much of what we don't know.
Dark Matter, and Dark Energy... Energy we can't see? How about the energy causing the expansion of mass? The accelerated expansion of the universe, despite the fact that gravity suggests that, if nothing else, expansion should slow over time. So much, would make sense, and so many useless hypothesis created over the last few decades could be thrown out the window.
Well... if all matter is expanding... How come at a certain age, human beings stop getting bigger? Because it's all expanding at the same speed, so relatively... Everything looks the same. You are, are almost infinitely larger than you used to be, but no one can tell the difference.
Wouldn't the sun be getting bigger? No, the heat generated by its expansion pushes us further away, so it looks like we stay the same size... Since the moon is smaller than the earth and has less particles of matter, shouldn't it look relatively smaller? It does! They only recently discovered that the moon appears to be shrinking over time.
How would some things float, while others sink? The mass is still the same, some things are lighter than others, but they are all constantly expanding at the same speed size wise.
Someone with a science background please, prove to me that this theory is nonsense... because it just seems so obvious to me, but no one supports it. What did I miss?
