The claim from the Kybalion that science has not attempted to explain the principles of molecular cohesion, atomic attraction, or gravity, is
completely incorrect. Science explains both molecular cohesion, the force that holds molecules together, and atomic attraction, which basically is
just chemical bonding, by means of electric forces. Gravity is explained by space-time, the very fabric of the universe, having curvature due to the
presence of mass. And theories of this nature have actually worked extremely well at explaining the universe around us. They've succeeded in
explaining all natural phenomena much better than the majority of alternative theories, thus why they are believed to be correct. Of course the theory
of gravity is correct, but it is not complete, but they are on the right track.
I am not opposed to the idea of a law of attraction, because I am quite convinced that there is much science cannot explain, and that science is
outright incorrect where some things are concerned, but ancient belief systems of this nature do not stand up to scrutiny. Once you can disprove a
portion of the claims it becomes obvious that the overall doctrine is not in itself cohesive, meaning that the belief system is fallible. With science
one would expect this, as it builds through experimentation and observation over time, while mystical doctrines claim to have all the answers
outright. What I mean is that disproving a portion of that doctrine means that all of the ideas are not infallible, and thus how can one place any
more faith in them than they can in science, since science does a much better job at explaining things?
As to the original question posed, which was "Is gravity the cosmic reflection of the law of attraction and electro magnetism," I have to admit that
I have no real clue what this even means, lol. I suppose your idea stems from the fact that both electromagnetism and gravity are forces of
attraction, which then somehow is related to the law of attraction. The way I understand the law of attraction is that one can influence, or attract,
things in their lives by their thought process. I think it has been well established that the thought process can have an actual physical effect on
the body that houses the mind, but that is a bit different from having a physical effect on matter outside of the body. One would naturally ask why
this is the case, and I think the best answer is because the mind is physically connected to the body. It is a part of it. Of course there could be
some non-physical connection between the mind and external matter, and I do not think it is impossible by any means. But I'm having trouble trying to
find a connection between the mind and gravity or electromagnetism, as these forces are constant and predictable. We know how to produce them, and how
they will behave once they are produced, whereas we have zero clue regarding how or why a person's thoughts could influence the world around us.
There is no direct evidence to even suggest it is occurring, but absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, as they say. So the more I think
about it the more confident I am in stating that if the law of attraction exists, that it acts independently of forces like gravity and
electromagnetism, otherwise shouldn't we be able to influence such things simply utilizing thoughts? Unless you mean that the combination of
everyone's thoughts, meaning every person on the planet, is somehow producing external effects that we view as constants, like gravity. But this
would mean that such effects shouldn't have existed, or should have been different, if people were not present. There was a time that there was no
life on earth, and the earliest forms of life were simple micro-organisms, and so it is difficult to conclude that thought processes had external
effects since there was nothing to produce the thoughts in the first place.
One thought experiment, or line of thinking, that could circumvent this difficulty would be the idea that there is some consciousness that exists
"somewhere," and that affects or generates these external forces like gravity, and that this consciousness existed long before the universe came
into existence, or at the very least before life came into existence within the universe. Then it could be argued that life is just an extension of
this "source" consciousness and that all life is somehow connected to it, non-physically, or perhaps physically but in a manner we have yet to
identify and understand. I mean there could be an ether, although I doubt it, and it could transmit particles and information that we cannot even
perceive at present. It need not be an ether however, but it could still be a physical particle of some sort that is doing the transmitting. There
could even be particles that transmit information that could never be physically detected, although that would be a nightmare for physicists...to
reach the end of the road only to find that you can go no further, meaning we could never fully understand the universe in which we live.
Anyway, back to what I was saying, hypothetically there could be a source consciousness that was responsible for generating all of our fundamental
forces, or the universe as a whole, and life in the universe is somehow connected to this source, and therefore it could be argued that our thoughts
influence fundamental forces like gravity and electromagnetism. I want to reiterate that I do not believe any of this, rather I am just trying to
figure out how I could make your ideas work, if I even understood what you meant. I am not certain that I am taking your meaning correctly, and if not
