Gravitation is a natural phenomenon by which all objects with mass are brought towards one another, including planets, stars and galaxies. Since energy and mass are equivalent, all forms of energy, including light, also cause gravitation and are under the influence of it.
Gravitational force is the weakest of the fundamental interactions. It is approximately 1038 times weaker than the strong force, 1036 times weaker than the electromagnetic force and 1029 times weaker than the weak force. It is the only interaction that acts on all particles having mass. Gravity has an infinite range, although its effects become increasingly weaker on farther objects.
Universal Law Of Gravitation
According to universal law of gravitation, every object in the universe attracts every other object with a force directed along the line of centers of the two objects that is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the separation between the two objects.
The famous equation given by Sir Isaac Newton is as follows –
F =(G *M *m)/ r^2
Where F = Gravitational force. G = universal gravitational constant. M = mass of one object. m = mass of other object. r = separation between the two objects.
The theory of gravitation has a long recorded history of discoveries and developments. However, till date, some aspects of it remain unclear and elusive. A quantum theory of gravity is needed in order to reconcile general relativity with the principles of quantum physics.
We now scrutinize the phenomenon from a rational perspective.
We should try and analyse by what means or method any matter entity weighs the mass of every other matter entity in its vicinity?
By what method it measures the distance between itself and any other material object? Distance measurement on each instance with so much precision is another matter of detailing.
Furthermore, we should also try to understand by what approach any matter entity weighs its own mass? Is it self-aware?
All these quantitative measures are to be taken into consideration for the execution of the universal law of gravitation.
We need to address these questions, if we wish to comprehend the phenomenon of gravity in totality. And solve the remaining aspects of the phenomenon, including quantum gravity.
Convincingly, we deduce that matter objects are able to gauge their own mass. They also integrate their surrounding environ, as to the mass of other matter entities in vicinity and their own distance from those objects.
It is only then, the phenomenon of gravity assumes.
We, as human beings, the most sentient beings on earth cannot gauge our own mass or measure vicinity distances precisely. Forget about gauging (or even wild guessing?) anyone else’s body mass accurately. For that, we need a weighing machine to gauge mass.
And a measuring tape to measure distances in space.
So, should all kind of matter be considered comparable?
Should the line of differentiating matter on basis of living and non-living be dissolved? Is consciousness an intrinsic property of matter?
Should all matter, animate or inanimate, be considered conscious? Or the inanimate matter be considered super-conscious, as it displays properties beyond the grasp of conscious sentient human beings?
We need to advance our viewpoint and develop our perspectives on this subject.
