: Why should there be a graviton? There is no need for a messenger particle if the "force" of gravity is simply a property of inertia (i.e. acceleration on a curve that bends into a higher dimension). In this case..... is there a messenger particle for centrifical force?? I should think not. Ok, ok, centrifical force may not be an actual force.....but..... the way you describe gravity, it is nothing more than an objects resitance to a change in velocity, even if the direction is in a higher dimension. Gravity is not an actual force then, the only force would be the force that curves space time into the higher dimension, whatever that may be. Gravity is only a percieved byproduct.

Wayne: CL, its scary, this makes perfect sense to me. You have given me a new angle of view.
