Thought Experiment on Gravity Sensing Device

As posted earlier, science has no method for studying the short range effect of gravity itself. This short coming has been shrouded by our amazing success in the measurement of electric and magnetic fields. My own theoretical work has informed me that I need to look at geometric forms that enhance the gravitational effect in one direction, rather than get caught up in the chase for galactic scale pulses which may not exist at all.

It is also informed by the experiments reported by a Russian researcher who investigated the unusual effects of insect wings. He fell into an empirical puddle that conforms to the idea of using such geometric forms. I posted on this earlier in the year at:

He certainly claimed a major advance in dealing with gravity that included the ability to control it in support of lifting his body, using rudimentary tools. I am sure no one believes his results and since he has passed, his work is not fully written down.

There was enough however in his report to support my own ideas and open the question of measurement.

I suggest that we need to work with graphite crystals. They do occur naturally and can presumably be shaped with lasers and possibly diamond dust to form rectangular slab crystals. I suspect that the gravitational effect will vary according to length of the slab and be expressed at the ends and be stronger than the same effect over the thickness of the slab.

Therefore two such slabs interacting with each other from many different angles in a vacuum should provide a host of variable levels of torque or stress that could be measured by electronic means. It is a very sensitive experiment that could still fall short but this is at least a start.

Such a device will lead to a gravity sensing device able to measure the effect if any of say a post or the end of a concrete wall.

Graphite makes this possible because it is solid stack of laminated layers of graphene that naturally provide the equivalent of a wave guide for the effect.

As an aside, butterfly wings are covered with vertical slabs that display remarkable precision leading to the unusual coloration produced by optical means. If a gravitational effect was in fact discovered, then this gives us a bench mark to work toward in terms of our own precision. Maybe we can manufacture a graphite gravity lens whatever that may mean.
