A FUNDAMENTAL REVOLUTION IN SCIENCE, presented in Tulsa, OK, in 2006, demolished the nebular hypothesis of Immanuel Kant that has misled scientists for 250 years, and replaced it with ACCREATION (creation by accretion) that accurately reflects the slow process of creation of the Solar System and its planets. This cosmology leads to further discoveries in the fundamentals of physics, both conventional and quantum. Gravity's mechanism intrigued me after discovering that spherical shape enables gravity to focus on the exact center of any planetary body. Observation that falling water drops become spherical, just as molten lead forms cannon balls when dropped from a height, suggests the mechanism of gravity is INTERNAL and the power of gravity is determined by the collective mass, or total (atomic?) weight of all atoms in any body. A corresponding gravitational effect may exist in the cloud of gas, dust, meteoroids and asteroids orbiting the Sun, but spacing of planets in the plane of the ecliptic suggests a collective gravitational power is projected in all directions, the intensity determined by the size and gravity of each body. This leaves unanswered the internal workings of the atom. Current theories of gravitons, electromagnetism, 'weak' and 'strong' forces, as somehow related to gravity are matters requiring much thought and experimentation. Also, the Hubble redshift as an indicator of increasing velocity at the outer edges of an Expanding Universe is illogical: the speed of light should be constant throughout the Universe. Logic suggests the red shift as a metric of distance.
