The Principle of Equivalence states that there is no way to measure the difference between the linear acceleration produced by a constant dynamic force and the constant upward acceleration of gravity measured at the earth's surface. If we thus carry this principle to its most logical conclusion we must assume that gravity and inertia are not just equal but identical. This leads us to a simple and easily understood mechanism for gravity that is completely both local and mechanical. We replace the Principle of Equivalence with the Principle of Gravitational Expansion in which the cause of gravity is simply a constant expansion of the dimensions of matter and photons. This leads to a new gravitational constant Go that is a constant velocity instead of an attraction, an acceleration or a curvature of space-time. This gives us a new interpretation of General Relativity that resolves the paradoxes surrounding gravitational time dilation, the Pound-Rebka experiment, the speed of gravity, orbital revolution and the formation of both galaxies and atmospheric clouds.
