A blue sky, with the word gravimotion, to replace space-time curvature

What is the fabric of gravitation?

Neither physicist nor writer, the author of this essay follows his intuition and uses his imagination.

Introducing the "real fabric" that in gravimotion interpretation of Nature is behind the english word gravity and behind science's mathematics.

While science's mathematics fits reality and as such is unquestionable, the conventional language associated or parallelling these mathematics is rejected and replaced by a drastically different language in the following interpretation of Nature.
And to support the following unconventional thinking and language is this Albert Einstein's saying:
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
  1. The question is: what is gravitation?
    Or specifically: what real yet invisible entity is constituting and occurring as gravitation?
  2. To start with let's bring to light that in gravimotion interpretation of Nature motion is a real entity, an interpretation shunned by science
    In science motion is relative and that infers that motion is not a real entity, as solid matter is.
    On the other hand, consider the phenomenon of light; light, which has no mass, is moving itself across space; in gravimotion interpretation of Nature light very essence is motion; the sunlight's very motion, which may burn your skin, is definitely a real entity; motion relativity sidesteps motion reality; and to add to science's confusion as seen from gravimotion, light's motion is absolute and not relative.
    In gravimotion interpretation of Nature motion is occurring in reality and is as real as matter; motion relativity is the mathematical interpretation of our human observation of real motion.
  3. Observation of the gravitation phenomenon
    Take your pencil, lift it above the table and release it; thanks to earth's gravity it falls or gets into motion.
  4. In this interpretation, the nature of gravitation is motion
    Because Earth's gravity provides the pen's motion, Earth's gravity is occurring as real motion.
    As a general rule any gravitation, in this new interpretation, is occurring as a real entity that is motion hence the appelation gravimotion; while light's motion is constant within space-time though, gravity or gravimotion is occuring as an accelerated motion, just as described by science's mathematics. Science's equation for gravity: force = mass x acceleration precisely states that that force you are feeling under your feet (on the left of the equal "=" sign) is (on the right of the equal "=" sign) motion, as acceleration is motion added to motion.
  5. You might argue that while standing still on earth you are not falling, or not in motion
    Yet while standing on earth, it is reasonable to state that without the ground right there you would be falling farther down. The feeling you have under your feet while standing up instead of being labeled force can be labeled restrained motion.
  6. A new interpretation of gravitation called gravimotion
    As a consequence, in this new interpretation of Nature, gravitation departs greatly from science's two conventional interpretations that are: force and space-time curvature; earth's gravimotion instead interacts directly with the pencil's own surrounding gravimotion through overlap, excluding among other our human concept of force.
  7. Comment
    For such interaction to occur, 2 distinct yet overlapping motions, such as earth's and pencils respective gravities (respective gravimotions) must interact. Bring your mouse pointer over the underlined text.
    On how 2 overlapping motions do interact.

    Here are 3 examples of motion interacting on motion
    • Einstein famous "time dilation concept" is used as first witness.
      Time dilation, and that has been verified experimentally, coincides to the slowing down of a clock when that clock overall motion is increased (in a plane for instance).
      In that experiment physicists claim that time is slowed down. Yet reality can be interpreted in another way.
      Any pragmatic mind may instead state that the clocks' internal motion mechanism is slowed down by the clock's overall motion.
    • Another example of motion interacting on motion is the Coriolis effect.
      In this case earth's spin motion interacts with the motion of storms moving from equator to pole, through difference of pressure.
      The spin of earth creates a swirling effect that transforms the storms into cyclones.
    • A third case of motion interacting on motion is Einstien's demonstration that gravity (accelerated motion in gravimotion just as in science) deflects light rays (pure linear motion in gravimotion).

In gravimotion interpretation of Nature, gravitation is really occurring as motion; and motion is specifically interpreted as being a real entity.

Granted, it's not easy to give up the concept of force; and do not be fooled, it is still anchored in my own mind.
Once more though Einstein helped me a lot regarding my gravimotion idea, he said: "It is harder to crack prejudice than an atom."

Gravimotion and physics...

Gravimotion interpretation of Nature does not challenge physics' mathematical theories.
On the other hand gravimotion's interpretation of Nature challenges the conventional worded interpretations made of physics mathematics.
The ultimate goal is to propose ideas that describes Nature in a way that makes sense, yet in tune with physics mathematics.

At the core of gravimotion is a new or let say an ignored concept of motion.

In science motion is not defined; speed is mathematically described as distance over time, neither contributing to the motion described. Kinetic energy proportional to the inert mass of an object does not either reflect the action involved.
Gravimotion's motion is a combination of speed and energy; both desappearing in favor of that single motion entity.

In this gravimotion interpretation of Nature we make abstraction of the abstract in favor of the real.

Somehow one's mind to start with is reluctant to the idea that motion is what makes the pencil fall...
That can't be! That's too simple! Because a force creates acceleration, force and acceleration are 2 independent entities and uniting the 2, into a single concept named motion, goes against physics fundamental tenets.
Yet I ask the question: why does one's mind not consider motion that one's whitnessing?

Why does one's mind imagines this complex chain of events: the earth's (inert) mass creates (mysteriously) a (dynamic) force (or space-time curvature), and that force (or space time curvature), which is applied (in a mysterious way) to the pencil's mass moves the pencil's mass?
When one can simply think that some type of motion, called here gravimotion, surrounds the earth and is interacting with the pencil's very own gravimotion, the 2 share each other's reality.

In gravimotion interpretation of Nature gravity and light rays (and all electromagnetic waves) are all specific implementations of space-time, an entity occurring itself as random motions.
Gravimotion's interpretation of Nature is unifying under one single reality of motion all those mental concepts of ours that are: gravity, electromagnetic waves, space-time, acceleration and force.

This page is like the tip of an iceberg; in gravimotion interpretation of Nature far many more human traditional concepts are, as just done for gravitation, turned downside-up into motion...
