I never thought I'd write this someday, now I'll explain how it happened. About seven years ago I started to write a science fiction story, somehow I always wanted to do that and at that time the time had come. Not that I had talent, I often criticized movies because I thought I could tell the story more logically and I just wanted to see how I could do that. But I had quickly to realize that it wasn't that easy. In order to make my story work, the Earth-like planet had to be bigger than the Earth, but then there would be more gravity, and I wondered if the humans there would be shorter and stronger, and so on and so forth and at some point I just asked myself the question: »What is the gravity actually?«

At that time I started researching, but I was not really convinced of what I had read. No I am not smarter, but my human mind cannot understand eternity, infinity or absolutely empty, nothing. I wanted to tell a logical story down to the last detail and how should I explain: »The universe has exploded from nothing.« »It's possible that two or more universes have been exploded out of nothing in parallel.« But each universe could be infinitely large. »Space is supposed to be absolutely empty, as it stood somewhere, space is the definition of nothing.« How then can the earth exist into nothing? »Space penetrates everything.« If space can penetrate everything, then space is superior to everything. »Gravity is supposed to be an effect of matter«, but if space is superior to matter, then space should also be superior to matter effects. And now if space and time are dependent on each other, what actually influences gravity? Time or space? Space cannot be, because it is superior to all. It is time? Time is then no longer what we humans mean, but physics which coincidentally resembles to our events structure. But time runs slower at the sea than in the mountains. Nothing fits together somehow. I couldn't go on like this and then I tried to find an explanation myself, but the explanation should work without magic or mysteries.

There are a lot to read about singularity, quanta, neutrino, grey matter which cannot be proven, but otherwise everything is explained simply and insufficiently. But I needed the physics for my story; therefore the people accept all universe explanations, because the people don't need the explanations, then they don't analyze them either. But I needed them, so I sought my own explanation for the universe. After some time I had found for me a more realistic explanation for gravity. I assumed, a real environment like on earth can exist only into a real, touchable universe, so nothing magical or fantasy worlds. My explanation of gravity then led me to further ideas like black holes, an explanation how the galaxies could have been formed and how they work. And then I came to an incredible conclusion: A star will bring a planet that is composed like the earth gradually to a certain distance (that might just coincidentally always be the habitual zone) and keep the planet there in orbit. After that I thought: this is just fiction, nobody will be interested in it or will think about it. I only have to separate the logical from my own fantasy and name it accordingly.

But in April 2018 I read in the news: »The probe Juno flew over Jupiter in low altitude and the probe was attracted differently depending on the place.« There are huge storms, I think gravity is disturbed by the storms and that happens on Earth too. This came unexpectedly because it might indicate that there is a point in my explanation of gravity. I decided to describe what I found here separately.

Outer Space and Gravity

To explain the title briefly in advance; what we call outer space, controls or causes the gravitation. Gravity does not seem to be an effect of matter, there is much to be said against it. What is the gravitation? First the note again: The answer to what gravity is can only be acquired in school or college. What I am describing here is rather an idea, it can be right but based on wrong assumptions, or wrong for some other reason, or right but it will be discovered only in the next century ... Whatever, here is my story:

After looking at all the universe pictures that was the first thing that crossed my mind: »The earth and the other planets and stars are absolutely spherical, whether gases or stones, whether large or small. An incredible force has formed all these celestial bodies and keeps them in shape, but the force does not seem to work from the inside but from the outside.« The stars and galaxies are evenly distributed in the universe. I tried to draw points as evenly as possible on a sheet of paper, but I failed. It's always talked about gravity, attraction effect of matter, but the even distribution of the matter in the universe only indicates that the stars and planets avoid and do not attract each other.

I know the technology and the measuring instruments, gravity can be calculated and measured, and that is exactly why I questioned the explanations of gravity. First of all, I did a lot of research to find out if permanent gravitational differences were measured on Earth. The only thing I found were »small gravitational differences in storms, they were called temporary anomalies.« As has been known for 100 years, time at sea level is somewhat slower than in the mountains. Navigation with GPS must take the time differences into account so that the coordinates are correct. My question at that time was: »It cannot be that in the middle of the ocean and on the rocky beach, gravity has the same value, the matter is not homogeneous on earth, and the earth without water and with the mountains is also not round, but the atmosphere is nevertheless perfectly spherical. If only the Earth's core causes gravity, then we first had to answer the question how matter without gravity once heated up, and the explanation must apply to everything that is spherical in the outer space. »But if matter does not cause gravity, then what is it?« That was a few years ago and I couldn't accept any explanation completely, so I explained gravity to myself, because without a gravity explanation I couldn't develop any plausible technology for the 22nd century. For example, will cars float in the future? Now I can say: definitely not. Can space be folded in such a way that a wormhole is created and space travel is possible for us? No, that is not possible. This literally means for us: we are stranded here on earth forever.

But the year 2018 has made the theme topical again for me. Firstly, at some point at the beginning of the year I read: »A team wants or is already measuring time in different places on Earth.« Then I thought, when the results are available, maybe I could find out if there are significant permanent gravitational differences on Earth. In April 2018 I read another news: »As Juno swept above the cloud tops, it sensed that Jupiter's gravity wasn't pulling on it evenly, but changed.« There are huge storms there. I think the storms disturb the gravitation and that happens here on earth too.

And now, this is my "theory":
