Two books that could transform your understanding of reality:
The physics of material reality as never before -
in beautiful pictures and flowing poetry.
A radically new, but ages old, perspective on the nature of material reality.
A layman's view of
the scientific issues.
In these books
Dr Grahame Blackwell presents, in two quite different styles, his findings from ten years of scientific investigation and careful mathematical analysis.
(No maths in either book.)

Gravity: The Great Attraction -
Research reported in New Scientist supports electromagnetism proposal
On 4th June 2012 New Scientist reported research evidence indicating that
gravity may be an electromagnetic effect - as proposed in Dr Blackwell's paper.
The New Scientist article (available on-line for a very limited time) states:
In 2008 at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain, they were playing with a particular version of
a mutant gravity model called a vector-tensor theory, which they had found could mimic dark energy. Then came a sudden realisation. The new theory was supposed to be describing a strange version of gravity, but its equations bore an uncanny resemblance to some of the mathematics underlying another force. "They looked like electromagnetism," says Beltrán, now based at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. "We started to think there could be a connection."
The abstract from the paper detailing this new research refers to effects
as being generated by "electromagnetic potential".
In Section 2 of his paper on Gravity, Dr Blackwell states:
"In other words, at the quantum level electromagnetic potential is unlimited in its range
irrespective of any material obstacles"
In Section 6 of that same paper on Gravity, Dr Blackwell goes on to say:
"Space has an electromagnetic 'texture' – simplified to the scalar field of gravitational potential
in Section 4 – and that electromagnetic texture interacts with the electromagnetic composition
of matter itself to give characteristic effects of gravitation as extensively documented."
- clearly identifying gravitation as an effect generated by electromagnetic potential.
The New Scientist article says that the authors of this paper (and others) propose
"that in dark energy we are seeing an entirely new side to gravity. At distances of many billions
of light years, it might turn from an attractive to a repulsive force."
Dr Blackwell's paper describes gravity as a mix of attractive and repulsive forces.
This includes the possibility of a different order of repulsive term, very small at
'smaller' cosmic distances but becoming dominant over billions of light years
- 'dark energy'.
