Zero-Point Energy and the Emergence of Gravity: Two Hypotheses

Philip J. Tattersall

Abstract


Building on the results of experiments and speculations arising from his earlier collaborations as well as proposals from the theoretical work of others, the author suggests that gravity emerges as a result of the interaction of zero-point energy with matter. The results of experiments suggest that light, through its interaction with zero-point energy causes changes in the weight of test masses. These experimental results are interpreted as being due to changes in the spectral [Note 1] content surrounding massive bodies. Two hypotheses therefore emerge. Further experiments are planned to test the findings from earlier experiments.
