I spent the week seeing if I could give the good old college try and find a "way that worked" for the gauge games I have been playing. Nothing panned out. Bummer, I had a blog to write. While collecting crumpled paper, there was an old issue I wasn't able to figure out. The answer was probably known a hundred years ago. The blog will explain where I got stuck, and who knows, maybe someone will provide the answer.
Start the year off with a new toy model for gravity. It is a toy, so let's just play with it and see what we learn. Feel free in the comments section to vote if I should keep this toy or return it for a refund.
At a minimum, the toy must do three things. First, it must explain why I weigh a little over 150 pounds here on Earth. Second, it must explain why light bends in both time and space when flying by the edge of the Sun. Third, it needs to explain why I don't weigh over 300 pounds here on Earth, feeling only half the effects that light apparently does.
