Yeah, I miss ol' Azzy. He needs to get back here for two reasons:
1) to kick spammer butt
2) to help me understand science
I'm currently tossing around the idea of gravity...that mysterious, very weak force (in comparison to other three - electromagnetic, strong force, weak force) in our universe. Like,
does matter cause gravity, as postulated by Einstein? Is it an object's matter that bends spacetime, creating the phenomena of orbits and the "pulling sensation" on our bodies here on Earth?
Even better, what is the causal relation between matter and gravity? How exactly does matter create gravity...we only see the affects. And where do the gravitons (particles of which are supposed to be mass-less) come into this equation?
Like Lon, I am also not a "science guy". I sure would like to learn as much as I am capable of, though.
Edit - Ooh, just found a website which sheds some light on some of these amateur questions:
