Many years ago I theorized that gravity was a pushing force. I thought at the time that the idea was unique until the internet enabled me to see that the original pushing gravity theory was hundreds of years old. My current pushing gravity theory however is quite different, I think, than any other. It goes like this:
We have been aware of the ZPF (zero-point-fluctuations/ field) for many decades now. Within this field the primary particle that we are aware of are neutrinos, millions per square centimeter and photons. Theorists have proposed the existence of dark matter to account for the failings to predict the orbital speed/ momentum of galaxy disk stars. Together these particles and their related energies could be called the new aether. These aether particles could be called dark matter but not Higg's particles because the Higgs accordingly would be much too big. These particles accordingly bounce off each other with a uniform random pressure similar to gas pressure. EM radiation in the form of waves accordingly would radiate density waves of aether away from all matter leaving a slightly lower density and pressure of aether surrounding all matter. Therefore there would be a force vector difference in the space surrounding all matter. Any surrounding matter in this space would feel a stronger force pushing toward the gravitational source and a weaker force pushing back. The matter in this space would be pushed toward the other matter. As to the Earth relative to lets say a rock dropped from an airplane, the rock would be pushed toward the Earth by this force differential. After an arbitrary period of time, let's say a second, the rock would be pushed toward the Earth the aether would flow in behind it at the speed of light. The rock would still have a stronger pushing vector force behind it so it would continue to accelerate, hence gravity.
As Einstein showed, gravity also bends the path of photons and their waves which I propose are pressure waves of aether. To test both this theory of light and the above theory of gravity there should accordingly be a difference in the speed of light, down traveling at 64 feet per second faster than the speed going up (coincidentally the numerical value of its speed would be twice the number associated with the acceleration rate of gravity). Michelson and Morley’s experiment could not test up vs. down nor could it detect such a small difference in the speed of light. The experiment I propose would be a North-South (to discount differences due to the rotation of the Earth) shooting of reciprocal lasers for as far a distance as possible at roughly a 30 degree angle. The actual angle doesn't really matter because the speed difference could be trigged out if the distance and angle are great enough. Satellite laser shootings seemingly could be inconclusive since their orbital momentum could alter the results based upon time dilation possibilities and make the results more difficult to calculate and therefore more controversial. A ground based experiment would be seemingly simpler anyway.
I intend to conduct this experiment as soon as I can locate the appropriate lasers and precision timing devices, hopefully off the shelf somewhere. If this experiment shows the predicted difference it would nullify Special Relativity in favor of Lorentz transforms, it would nullify General Relativity concerning its predictions of motion because it would generally confirm a different theory of gravity. The related equations which I have developed, would bring in to question the Big Bang Theory because its mathematical basis are the equations of General Relativity. It would change aspects of Quantum Theory etc. etc. All based upon one simple experiment. This differential in the speed of EM radiation, proposed by this experiment through air, would be very small and accordingly would be the reason why it hasn't been detected as yet.
