I don't understand how gravity works

@dyslexia,
As someone who knows nothing of Physics, I can safely say I do not understand gravity from a scientific standpoint. I do, however, understand it from a philosophical standpoint: gravity is a force we perceive as the attraction between matter, much in the same way that we perceive our own attraction between ourselves and other people or things. To me, it is well and good to point out that there is no unifying theory, but also to point out that all great discovery started off this way. Perhaps, as our brains evolve, we will understand better the definition of gravity and space time. Until then, I will choose to believe that this common phenomenon is an intrinsic piece in the riddle of our own existence, and this makes us incapable of comprehending it at the current time.

@dyslexia,
Absolutely. Given all the methods tested so far, however, I see the scientific method as by far the most effective method of past and future insight.

Particle physics took something that is applicable to our reality and extrapolated it to where it is no longer applicable. The reality of sub-atomic particles is far more wave like than particle. When we search for the effect of gravity (ie mass) it pops up in different places. It cant be predicted to have location, speed and direction all at the same time. There is also the problem of measurement. If you have a very large thermometer and you measure the temp of a very small amount of water, the recording device will interfere with the result. This is also true of particle physics. All this unpredictibilty has led to all sorts of voodoo about alternate universes and so on.

Yet there are things that are very well known. If something is made of matter it will never go faster than the speed of light. It is better to think of light as existing in the first dimension and intersecting with us rather than a mysterious part of three dimensions. Worm hole travel is sci-fi only. There is no way to avoid the fact we are stuck here. Most of what we will discover about the universe will follow the current methodology..it will come to us in the form of radiation.

gravity is the ordering of space , by rotation of a mass

Gravity is the culmination of the primal forces of attraction and repulsion refracting through each other to give us the opposing spectrums of matter and anti-matter which in turn refract to give us electromagnetism. (Primal Matrix) a guidebook to the universe for dumb scientists. (kindle)Read it and you will better understand, in fact more than the scientists writing these theories of our universe. Gravity is so elusive to quantum mechanics because scientists fail to see that gravity is what makes up the particles and therefore is not itself a particle of matter. Gravity is the energy of matter, not a particle of matter.
