Gravity strings: theory of gravity


Sometimes I believe action at a distance (and time dilation at a distance) is impossible. It doesn't make sense that the Earth can cause a force (or time dilation) on the Moon without actually touching the Moon. For this reason, it seems there should be a connecting object that causes gravity. Regarding action at distance, Isaac Newton once said,


"That gravity should be innate, inherent and essential to matter, so that one body may act upon another at a distance thro' a vacuum, without the mediation of any thing else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one to another, is to me so great an absurdity that I believe no man who has in philosophical matters a competent faculty of thinking can ever fall into it. Gravity must be caused by an agent acting constantly according to certain laws; but whether this agent be material or immaterial, I have left to the consideration of my readers." (Letters to Bentley, 1692-1693)


To address this issue, I created a theory where gravity is caused by subatomic strings (gravity strings) that pull objects together. I dont actually believe this theory, but it serves as a possible template to think action at a distance. Below I've listed a few principles about gravity strings.
