Spring-And-Loop Theory

I've come up with an extension of string theory. I'd be curious what others think of it.

formulas (1)

I took a quick look. I don't see any formulas nor some kind of rigorous derivation. Or calculations (for example of G constant). That makes it kind of worthless, sorry.

That is one approach to a new idea.

Thank you for your honesty.

Gravity (1)

justthinkit (954982) | about 2 years ago | (#42500313)

Regarding "calculating G", there is no need to show this calculation, as part of Spring-And-Loop Theory, as the magnitude of the force, how it is calculated, etc. is unchanged in Spring-And-Loop Theory.

What is changed is the view of what exactly gravity is.

Currently gravity is viewed as an attractive force and everyone is busily searching for the gravity force-carrying particle.

Spring-And-Loop Theory says that gravity is an effect of a graviton on spring space. Imagine a chain-link fence as the spring space. A graviton added to that space is like clamping the chain links tighter together at one spot on the fence (i.e. the springs wrap around the graviton loop at that one spot). The effect on the fence is small, measurable a long way away and "attractive" (or compressive in this analogy).

Spring-And-Loop Theory says we will never find the gravity force-carrying particle because such a thing does not exist. [There are gravitons...i.e. loops, but these are not gravity's messenger particles.]
