Is Gravity Incoherent Magnetism?

This starts by quoting Ken Wheeler. Repeating the same unsubstantiated claim from someone else is not evidence. It is a plurality of unsubstantiated claims. However, even if the claim were valid, it only offers a different underlying explanation for why ALL matter is attracted to ALL matter. A flat earth would still collapse into a spherical shape.


Toon’s Law of Flerf #1 is confirmed.

No specific section is referenced. Reviewing this book, it appears there is nothing different from current understandings of electric and magnetic fields. There are no mentions of “incoherent magnetism”, Aether, or anything else supporting Austin’s claims.

There is a good treatment of electrostatic fields. Nowhere does this show that a local electrostatic field can be ignored for a distant, weaker electrostatic field as must be the case in the vicinity of thunderstorms.
