A NEW STEADY STATE THEORY?
I am a layman, so this will be in layman's terms.
It may seem a strange subject for my web page, but that's because I want to get it down on paper before someone else has similar thoughts. Also, it may shed a little light on my Mobius Strip fixation, the way I've used the Strip in my fiction...
3. Another scientific fact:
The mass of a physical object as it approaches the speed of light increases dramatically. At the speed of light itself an object's mass is infinite -- as great as the universe that produced it! -- which is why the universe is no longer able to contain it. But here we've been talking about mass not weight. Weight is the product of the mass of a body and the acceleration acting upon it. How heavy, then, is an infinite mass when it's moving at the ultimate velocity? (Heavy!)
7. The lack of gravity.
Many scientists are puzzled by the universe's apparent lack of weight. Where the hell is all the missing gravity? I am a layman, not a scientist. But if my "whacky" ideas should just happen to be nearly correct, the lack of gravity (there's only 10% or less of what there should be to maintain the universe) can "easily" be explained away. The gravity is there in all those fast-fleeing galactic bodies on the rim of the universe which are gradually approaching light-speed. And as for why the universe is speeding up the further out we go, that's because it's being drawn out by the vestigial gravity of all those near-infinite masses gone before.
