What Causes Gravity

A uthor Barry Lebost proposes a new principle in physics that would replace Einstein's Principle of Equivalence with The Principle of Exactness using only the universal properties of accelerating bodies in space. Einstein was convinced that gravity was inertia but could not prove that they were exactly the same- if gravity was exactly inertia then the ground would have to be moving up like the floor of a spacecraft. So he backed off of exactness and proposed equivalence instead as he was sure this was the only way to explain the curvature of space time. Barry Lebost claims that gravity is exactly inertia created by the inflation of an expanding, accelerating universe. He calls the system that nature uses to accelerate and expand: A Uniform Symmetrical Accelerated Concentric Radial Expansion (USACRE) which utilizes only the geometric configuration of forces created by acceleration and inertia to construct the spherical architecture of bodies in space and gravity. Gravity exists because of the inertia established by the secondary radial expansion of accumulated particles in the radial direction. Because human observers are integral members of the expanding accelerating universal frame, the entire motion of expansion is invisible ( as described by Jules Henri Poincare in 1897 in his paper on The Relativity of Space. All particle matter appears to be coming together because the space between them is diminishing as expansion progresses. Both Equivalence and Exactness create the curvature of space time but Exactness describes a universe that is both expanding and accelerating while Equivalence attempts to describe a variant universe from the observer position of invariance.

The book lays out a progression of logical steps to demonstrate to readers how gravity is merely normal inertia created by an accelerating mass. The book focuses on how the properties of accelerating bodies in space are universal which directly point to the exactness of inertia. What has lead observers to continuously come to the wrong conclusion about gravity is that we are all integral members of two invisible accelerating frames; when you are part of the motion you cannot see or measure the motion directly. Universal accelerated expansion is invisible when observers are integral members of the universal accelerating frame and there is no outside reference frame for comparison.

“Einstein’s instincts as well as his mathematics told him that gravity was caused by inertia,” the author writes. “But the concept of the earth’s surface accelerating outward into space seemed absurd. What if Einstein, Newton, et al., were physically prevented from observing the acceleration of the surfaces of planets and stars? Could this be possible?”

In The Universal Properties of Acceleration, after discussing the history of thought about gravity, acceleration, and inertia, Barry Lebost leads readers through a logical progression by means of thought experiments to see how gravity is the inertial effect of inflation’s acceleration. Lebost is an inventor who has worked with fluid dynamics; he also invented a wind turbine that generates heat directly from wind power and a jungle mosquito trap which may significantly reduce the spread of malaria.

Regarding physics, Lebost’s ideas stand tradition on its head. He believes that Newton’s separation of gravity from inertia provided a precedent that has continued until today, blinding scientists to reality and preventing the correct understanding of physical properties. Einstein came close to putting gravity and inertia back together, recognizing the mathematical implications and apparent similarity, but couldn’t logically reconcile the two completely. He developed the principle of equivalence so that he could proceed mathematically; this resulted in a curved space-time. Under Lebost’s theory, that curvature is only apparent as an illusion created by the expansion of inflation. Expansion also is the cause of the inertial experience we call gravity.

Furthermore, Lebost’s theory apparently requires an open system with massive amounts of energy input. The inflation of the big bang did not stop, but continues today in every atom. It is the driving force that shapes the phenomena we see at work in the universe, from black holes to the earth’s weather, plate tectonics, and why your eyes are on the front of your head instead of on top. The author writes, “Without a doubt, if it weren’t for the force of gravity, life forms would look quite different. Both the magnitude and the direction of force play roles in the design of physical anatomical structure.”

Lebost’s theory of Accelerated Concentric Radial Expansion (ACRE) challenges the status quo in physics theory, but the logic is thorough and convincing. If the big bang theory is correct, if inflation is true, this is a major step toward a unifying theory. Some parts of the book are a bit repetitive, and some of the digital illustrations have been enlarged to the point of fuzziness. Still, anyone interested in understanding physics should give this book a long, hard look.
