**PREFACE**

So just because of our familiarity with this strength, we take the risk to stand on it by not even knowing on what force we stand.

As a result, our consciousness seems to become gradually more flexible in accepting the facts, that reduce our favored central position in the universe increasingly.

Here you will find a list of theories that try to explain what kind of force GRAVITATION is.

**EXPANSION**

**1.1. THE EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE**

*The present-day value of H (i.e., H0) counts between 50 to 100 km/sec/Mega parsecs* *(a parsec is 3.26 l.y).*

**2. THE UNIFORMITY OF THE EXPANSION**

*we are inclined to use our own safe surroundings as a reference frame;
(Albert Einstein (1879-1955).*

*absolutely no* *reference frame* *deserves preference*

*The **quasars** (K’) seem to move away from us rapidly.* That’s why the analogy of “baking raisin bread” is thought to be more appropriate. These concepts can be found in nearly every book in which the expansion of the universe is explained.

This idea is the key for this expansion theory: our brain is part of the expansion, although not everybody has the same interpretation.

**RELATIVITY AND SPEED OF LIGHT**

2.1. QUASARS AND SPEED OF LIGHT

*In 1991, with Narlikar’s help, I (Halton Arp) outlined in Apeiron the way in which particle masses growing with time would account for the array of accumulated extragalactic paradoxes. The Observational Impetus For Le Sage Gravity – Halton Arp’s official website*

In par. 2.2. we will change our position to another reference system and look at our own solar system (Milky Way) as K’.

**2.2. OUR GALAXY AND SPEED OF LIGHT**

It only depends on which reference system we accept as our main point of perception.

The orbiting velocity “v” is calculated as a result of the equations in par.4. Moving around the center of the universe in a circular movement of 12,228 km/sec relative to CMB (Cosmic Microwave Background). See also Appendix 3: derivation of velocity 12278 m/s

This acceleration causes expansion of mass/energy in galaxies, stars, planets, molecules, atoms and electrons. The energy is partially converted in energy needed for circular movements (kinetic energy, angular momentum) and partially in heat, radiation and increasing matter, although not everybody has the same interpretation.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_in_special_relativity :

*“Then, it was pointed out by Thomson and Searle that this electromagnetic mass also increases with velocity. This was further elaborated by *Hendrik Lorentz *(1899, 1904) in the framework of *Lorentz ether theory*. He defined mass as the ratio of force to acceleration, not as the ratio of momentum to velocity, so he needed to distinguish between the mass * *parallel to the direction of motion and the mass * *perpendicular to the direction of motion (where * *is the *Lorentz factor*, v is the relative velocity between the aether and the object, and c is the *speed of light*)”*

Jupiter orbits the sun with 13 km per sec. Keep in mind that our planets are “following” our sun in her orbit through our galaxy. Not only the planets with their moons are following the sun, but the Kuiperbelt and Oortcloud are “following” too. Imagine!

**2.3. MASS AND SPEED OF LIGHT**

**ALL MATTER EXPANDS**The universe expands equally like a dot on a balloon, suggesting that space is becoming larger as long as the balloon is still blown bigger.

suppose that we are a part of that surface, then we see nothing changing, nothing getting bigger, no expansion. our recording equipment, our measuring rod, our eye capacity expands equally and there is nothing happening.

Thus, we come to the idea that not only is the universe expanding with all the associated stellar systems, but so is all matter

Could this really be true? We start to search for some facts that must prove that this cannot be true.

We move around in our galaxy system with a speed of 220 km

If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it. Albert Einstein.http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/history/Quotations/Einstein.html |

**EXPANSION LEADS TO ACCELERATION**

The acceleration to the ground is equal for all objects the large golden ball is falling just as quick as the football.

The expansion does not decrease with the distance “**R**” squared (as the third law of Newton indicates), but with **4 pi r^{2}** because the impact of the expansion is divided over the surface of the ball-mass with radius

**EQUIVALENCE OF GRAVITATION AND ACCELERATION**

You can find the original text on the Internet on: http://www.bartleby.com/173/20.html

See David Levitt “How gravity works”.

We still stand firmly in our shoes whatever moves we make. Literally: expansion blows our minds.

**EXPANSION AND (SUB)ATOMAIRE FORCES.****7. SPACE TIME CONTINUUM**

Looking from our time and place, it really looks like an enormous explosion.

**A UNIVERSAL FIELD**

This is the dark matter that is discovered lately. In the first quarter of the nineteenth century, scientists discovered that light-waves move on through an “empty” space. Thus one felt obliged to introduce a field which could also exist in the absence of matter in empty space and it was called ETHER.

*The Observational Impetus For Le Sage Gravity – Halton Arp’s official website My own working hypothesis for gravity is now that gravitons are very low mass particles with a huge De Broglie wavelength compared to photons.*

Now we think that our universe consists of 25% of dark matter and 68% of dark energy in the present day observable universe. The fourth of July 2012 Scientists around the world celebrated the detection of what appears to be the Higgs boson, an elusive subatomic particle whose existence is a major step in understanding the origins of the universe. The Higgs field is the theoretical field of energy that permeates the universe, according to the theory put forth in 1964 by Scottish theoretical physicist Peter Higgs.

. This expanding field could be the same field, hat we call Higgs field, dark matter, Weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs), and *Strongly Interacting Massive Particles *(SIMPs). All are a theoretical form of particles. Matter is expanding by travelling through the Higgs field.

The energy field is converted into elementary particles, therefore into mass, and as a result of this expanding mass there arise electromagnetic strengths, strong and weak interaction and gravitation

This speed v = 12278 m/s (12,278 km per second) is probably the speed that our part of the universe is travelling through space. That means it is the velocity of our observable universe circling around the center of the universe or the velocity related to a universal inertial (background)system or a primary reference frame.

Halton Arp: *Now that we reference the primary reference frame*

Halton Arp: *An unexpected property of astronomical objects (and therefore an ignored and suppressed subject) is that their properties are quantized.*

**PREDICTION**

I think it is interesting to read what Halton Arp wrote in his essay The observational impetus for le Sage gravity.

As Dr. Arp’s colleagues lost patience *with his quest, he was no longer invited to speak at major conferences, and his observing time on the mighty 200-inch telescope began to dry up.*

*We still have no real answer to the question “Where is the center of the universe?”*

And even if this expansion theory is not correct, I hope you found many interesting equations, ideas and videos that give you more insight in gravitation. But if this expansion theory is not correct: then the question remains: what is gravitation?

**EPILOGUE**

You also can find essays that oppose the expansion theory Gravity as Expansion and Many Worlds Interesting to read and compare.

If the expansion theory is true and if it is true that we are expanding, then it does not change the way we live, but probably it will change many thoughts about our lives and about evolution.

Nikola Tesla’s Dynamic Theory of Gravity

The Observational Impetus for “Le Sage Gravity”

For many years I never questioned the obvious fact that masses attracted each other (inversely as the square of their separation – to complete the mantra). The attraction was so blatant that it required no thought. But then observations of galaxies and quasars forced me to accept the fact that extragalactic redshifts were primarily intrinsic and not the result of recessional velocity in an expanding universe.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/07/science/space/halton-c-arp-astronomer-who-challenged-big-bang-theory-dies-at-86.html?_r=0 Halton C. Arp, a provocative son of American astronomy whose dogged insistence that astronomers had misread the distances to quasars cast doubt on the Big Bang theory of the universe and led to his exile from his peers and the telescopes he loved, died on Dec. 28 in Munich.

http://electric-cosmos.org/arp.htm Halton C. Arp is a professional astronomer who, earlier in his career, was Edwin Hubble’s assistant. He has earned the Helen B.Warner prize, the Newcomb Cleveland award and the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award. For years he worked at the Mt. Palomar and Mt. Wilson observatories. While there, he developed his well known catalog of “Peculiar Galaxies” that are misshapen or irregular in appearance.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EckBfKPAGNM

Halton Christian “Chip” Arp (March 21, 1927 — December 28, 2013) was an American astronomer. He was known for his 1966 Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, which (it was later realized) catalogues many examples of interacting and merging galaxies. Arp was also known as a critic of the Big Bang theory and for advocating a non-standard cosmology incorporating intrinsic redshift.”

Thus, we come to the idea that not only is the universe expanding with all the associated stellar systems, but so is all matter—including the atoms and all particles which built matter.

Halton Arp: *Now that we reference the primary reference frame we are reminded that this is yet another strike against the hallowed relativity theory which is supposed to have no primary reference frame.*

Einstein said once: “Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore.”

The quantum physics, however, provided more and more mathematical calculations and less and less concrete pictures.

**APPENDIX 2: some remarks about other units.**

To describe the expansion at the atomic level, we have to make a conversion of the following units: Volt, joule, Ampère, Coulomb, Newton, Farad, Tesla and Weber.

That way we can recognize the MKS units”cubic meter,” which is so important to describing expansion.

Who wants to do some counting? I have a lot of these ** mind boggling** unit calculations.

Richard Feynman about “WHY”

Gravity (and magnetic forces) cannot be boiled down into anything else, because they are what everything boils down to. They are the primitives of physics, held up by human made crutches. They’re just as numbers are to mathematics[1]. If we could deconstruct gravity into further primitives[2], it would be no short of groundbreaking. However, we would still be left with new primitives. We cannot overcome what’s at the bottom.
