Gravity - seems real enough, but...

I know what many of you are saying - gravity is obvious, testable, we see it every single day!

IN the realms of quantum mechanics it is readily provable that all things are tied together by various forces. The very nature of Nature is that it is a constant field, an ether of energy.

Given that constant field we all live in, imagine that each person is "individual" in the same way that a drop of water in the ocean is individual. It's not really individual unless given a name, given a perception of individuality. Humans, by the nature of humanity, perceive themselves as individuals EVEN THOUGH we are literally just part of a big field of energy.

What does this have to do with Gravity?
Today's article in ScienceDaily, Supersymmetry Squeezed as Large Hadron Collider Spots Ultra Rare Particle Decay, shows again that even amongst the most recent and advanced theories, most of them DON'T INCLUDE GRAVITY!

So what is gravity if it's not an actual force?

If each of us perceives ourselves as an individual but in actuality we are but a drop of water in a vast ocean, how would we perceive relation to one another? It is merely our perception of individualty that makes us individual. In the vary same way it is our perception of gravity that gives us a location in our perceived space. It makes us feel connected to Earth - a center of energy. Gravity "exists" in the same way our "individuality" does! It doesn't. It ONLY does because the 'technology of humanity' is such that we believe in it.

Granted, this entire theory has the caveat that one must view oneself as part of the whole, which is against human nature, so most of us will simply slough it off as jibberish, however you ALSO slough off the fact that you are intricately tied into everything by energy even though it's quantum fact.

Our inability to adequately describe Gravity in most of our theories is because we need to mix Philosophy and Quantum Mechanics in order to perceive our answer (and we don't quite have the math for that YET!)

Edited to Add relevant quote:

Current knowledge about the most fundamental matter particles (quarks and leptons, such as an electron) and the forces between them is embedded in the so-called Standard Model. The particle masses are a consequence of their interactions with the Higgs field. Exciting the Higgs field in particle collisions at the LHC recently resulted in the discovery of the Higgs boson.

However, the Standard Model is not the ultimate theory; it does not include gravity nor explain 95% of the Universe, which is in the form of Dark Matter and Dark Energy.

I'm pretty sure Einstein said gravity isn't actually a force...

It's the way objects travel through a curve in space-time which results from a physical mass such as earth
