    What if gravity is not caused by mass but is instead caused by the universe returning to an original state... Energy. As we approach the speed of light we get bigger. What if the earths pull was actually a push that accelerated us away causing the same feeling we get in an elevator?

    What if the light Lensing effect Einstein saw and used to prove acceleration and gravity are one in the same which was seen during an eclipse was actually the sun growing in the path of the stars behind it. The light of course would look as if gravity was working on it when it is simply showing what the size of the sun was a second ago?

    We of course would never know the difference...

    The bigger a planet is the bigger the circumference. Thus the more acceleration felt by its natives as it grows. As everything grows...

    Think of it: Gravity or 1 g is 9.8 m/s2. That is the actually speed at witch we are accelerated away causing the sensation of gravity. A constant acceleration of 9.8 m/s2 can't reach the speed of light so time space and other factors accommodate it.

    Is this possible?

    I suggest you read what Einstein wrote first. You do not know enough to ask meaningful questions.

    You are arguing against Newton if anything not Einstein. Einstein talked about an equivalence between gravity and acceleration.

  4. #3 No.. I believe Einstein would agree.

    I am reintrepreting what he said. I know what Einstien said about Acceleration. Mine is just a different perspective.

    Oh...
    I would apprieciate more than a, "your too dumb to talk to me", if anyone else replies. I know you didn't mean to sound insulting but perhaps a gesture in the direction of what the error of my thinking is would be nice.

    As far as reading what Einstein said please remember that Einstein dropped his math and had a partner who translated his views into math. He came up with the theory of relitivity without the knowledge of the subject of math. It is a good thing he didn't listen to his math professor who thought Einstein was not capable of this type of reasoning. He used pure thought experiments.

    his question was, "What would it be like to travel on a beam of light... what would i see."

    My question is, "What if we view the universe as being accelerated away rather than falling into a dimple of space time fabric as classical space time theorist assume."

    I want to know if math supports either view as one and the same.
