Gravity Doesn't Exist.
If you have trouble following Verlinde's theory, so do some of the best physicists in the world. “Some people have said it can’t be right, others that it’s right and we already knew it," a Harvard physicist noted, adding that the theory is "a very interesting collection of ideas that touch on things we most profoundly do not understand about our universe." Verlinde himself claims gravity is a kind of emperor's new clothes. “We’ve known for a long time gravity doesn’t exist," he insists. "It’s time to yell it.”
So much for my postulate that gravity is the deep background for living beings, the gravitational difference, veiled over and forgotten because it's always already there.
