Theories and speculations


Gravity famously doesn’t respect the laws of quantum physics. The reason for this seems obvious if we look at it in terms of perception rather than science. If we think about an orchard of apples collectively, the question of which apple will fall, and when, and even if any will ever fall at all, is a quantum one, and the answers to all questions about the future behaviour of the apples is clearly governed by probability. Once an apple breaks its connection to the collective and falls, however, it infallibly obeys the trajectory set by gravity. We know how fast it will travel, and when it will strike the ground. It has, for a brief period of time, separated itself from the collective orchard. The difference between the falling object and the orchard is not one of physics but of attention. We consider the falling apple as a singularity. This individual consideration itself creates the apple’s teleological path, and the laws of gravity are the means by which we have defined our attention. This does not mean that the laws of gravity are invalid, or subjective. They explain the movement of the apple as it falls. It is vital knowledge. The trajectory of a spear, arrow or bullet can be considered in the same way. Failure to attend to the laws of gravity might mean no food. The certainty it offers however is short lived. Once the apple is on the ground the question of whether it will seed has to be considered as a probability alongside the germination prospects of all the other apples. It returns to the collective of the orchard. The singularity exists only during the fall. The question is then one of whether the laws governing the fall of the apple are consistent with the laws of probability and of course the answer must be that they are of a different order. Gravity is part of the condition of the apple hanging in the tree and as such although a falling apple might briefly be considered as a singular object in itself all the apples may or may not fall. Gravity has to be considered as part of the apple, as an aspect of the object. It is no more singular than the object itself.  Although it might seem a kind of reverse logic, we can say that gravity only exists because there are objects. It has no independent existence. Gravity is part of the perceived object. It is not therefore a physical law at all but a law of perception. This observation applies to all objects we perceive to have teleological movement, including the smallest particles. It has been proven by gate experiments where particles which appear to have linear movement  are shown in fact to be travelling in waves. Objects are transient and both their solidarity and linear movement are aspects of human observation, not of the physical world. The laws of gravity therefore don’t ‘fit’ because they are of this order of laws of the observation of  objects.
