Gravity –Knocked Out
What goes up comes down. This cardinal truth is the genesis of the idea of gravity .The force that pulls all things down to earth, the gravitational force, has also gravitated our thinking towards it right from the day it was conceived. Once this idea made home into our minds, the law of gravitation was an exercise to develop an equation to mathematically measure that force. It is abnormally normal that we don’t make an enquiry into the veracity of the established or axiomatic truths. It only happens when such truth fails to work. The truth of falling bodies is one such. Aero planes crash land partly on account of some human failure and partly due to non-failure of the truth of gravity. It may seem silly to the thinker himself to think that the objects of mass are not attracted to the earth.
Any good and correct theory developed within the parameters of given truth or truths will always work or is rather bound to work within the scope determined by those given truth/truths. The problem arises when such theory is not in sync with the larger or universal truth. I will emphasize here that if there is a universal truth then it is the ultimate theory of everything and nothing else than that. The wise have given it the name of God. The lesser mortals like me take it as a search of God and perhaps that is a more inconvenient way of worshipping. All other truths are parts or extensions of that truth. The gravitational theory as we know of today has bluntly refused to be a part or extension of the other established truths of quantum mechanics. The search for the final theory is stuck there.
