Hey, everyone. I'm a real new person in these parts ( as my nickname suggests). I do, however, have an idea that might help. I have come up with a model of gravity vs. energy. There are two sides, one labeled "gravity", one "energy", and a barrier between the two. The latter would be what we refer to as the universe. All three, gravity side, energy side and the barrier would expand infinitely in all directions, overlapping each other. Because of this arrangement, the three sections could be referred to as the three dimensions. There is a fluid - if you will - moving through the barrier from one side to the other, creating either a gravitational pull or a blast of energy from our point of view. One example is a particle or many particles of energized matter (plasma, sound traveling through the air, etc.) creating a hole in the barrier, allowing the fluid to flow from the energy side to the gravity side which we can monitor as energy in various forms.A second example is just the opposite- a dense particle or mass of dense particles allowing the fluid to move from the gravity side to the energy side ( which, from our point of view, would be a planet or the like creating a gravitational pull). Different kinds of holes would act like valves, only allowing the fluid to move in one direction. I also have something to say about this "space-time" thing. The way I see it, space-time cannot be warped. Space is like a point on a graph, moving foreward along a line on the same graph. To warp space-time, or to move faster or slower along the line of space would be to leave the realm of space altogether and be converted into pure energy, possibly creating a two-way hole in the barrier mentioned above. I hope this helps everyone to "think outside the lines" a little, and come up with their own bright ideas instead of supporting ones off of Star Trek.
