The split between these two ideologies? I think I know what you mean. Does subscribing to SuperString Theory put "me" on one side of that fence? It seem so.
I used to think of the "Fabric Of Space" as being deformed, if you will, and nearby objects "sort of" falling into "the path of least resistance". But S.S.T. requires the "Gravitron", very massive. Well beyond our ability to focus that many particles on a single one to create those kinds of masses. It would take a collider light years long. This has caused me to look another direction for the force holding things together. There is a requirment for a particle here, almost massless, but at "c", very heavy. Some exchange is going on. Electromagnetic of sorts.
This would seem to go hand in hand somehow with the wave/duality problem. Are things electromagnetic particles or waves of energy. Well energy represents mass; theres a connection here to be pondered. Perhaps were seeing both. Perhaps the particles come in waves, like water molicules coming at you as waves.
S.S.T. should solve this soon. I hope before I'm gone. I'm 49 with problems of my own that take my time at a faster pace then I'd like.
