Physics

I like to think that I have a fairly high level of intelligence, but one of the subjects that has always had me floundered, was physics.

However I now can take great pleasure in that one noted scientist, Erik Verlinde, who is a respected string theorist (sounds like something I should read about!) and professor of physics at Amsterdam University has suggested that gravity doesn’t exist.

Now I have previously questioned gravity myself. I’m pretty sure I used my Facebook status to post a question last year about whether gravity had changed.

I don’t always feel like gravity on earth is 9.81 m/s2. Sometimes I feel like it is a little less, sometimes a little more, and not just because of how I feel it but how I interpret everything upon which this said force of gravity is supposed to act upon.

So if gravity is supposed to be a constant 9.81 m/s2 and if it isn’t always acting as such, does this mean that there is actually no such thing as gravity and we are assuming something invalid?

The professor’s explanation in the title link as usual is nothing like my ramblings, and makes little sense to me.

I don’t think that I will ever get my head around physics as I just cannot accept and conceptualise everything into the world around me.

Should I talk about Big Brother instead? It is on my to-blog list, ha ha ha!!!
