Reading 'the field' by lynne mctaggart (think i spelled that right), she talks about a theory of 'push gravity' as you describe, fueled by 'zero
point energy'-- the energy that comes from the space between particles, more or less. but you can fill in the blanks there with almost anything (dark
matter, gluons, the love of jesus christ, the force, whatever) and it still makes more sense and is explained better than conventional gravity. the
thing about conventional gravity theories is that nobody can really explain the logic behind them-- gravity just IS, kind of like time just IS-- only
people are starting to poke holes in that idea of time. so why not gravity?
i also recalled an experiment cited in a book, where two metal plates, positioned facing eachother, both standing vertically, had a slight attraction
to eachother (non-magnetic), supporting the idea of push gravity (since it would push in from all sides, not just 'up', albeit the push from the
sides would be much less noticabe, since it more or less balances itself out). however, the distances and forces observed in this experiment were
extremely small. i'll see if i can hunt down the book and cite my sources a little better.
