Text Box: One difficulty is that general relativity allows black holes to exist, with all the disbelief that that requires of the rest of us. The most serious difficulty is that, after more than a quarter of a century, there is still no way of reconciling Einstein's theory of gravitation, his general theory of relativity, with quantum physics. A generation of talented people, not so much an army as a company, has beaten its head against that problem without much success...

Text Box: The Gravitational Effect Between Celestial Bodies

 The isolated body, X, in space absorbs the long-range radiation and emits the energy out.
It is a spontaneous exchange of the body with the vacuum field.
 And the frequency of exchange corresponds to the body's natural breathing or vibrational cycle in that environment. 

A body, Y, of greater mass (more nucleons) would thus exchange a larger amount of energy with the outside field.
The flux intensity (energy per unit area per unit time) of the outside field being the same (constant), however, it would take a longer time for the greater mass of Y to inhale and exhale. That is, larger the body, larger is its period of natural vibration.   

Thus, for instance, the hydrogen atom (1 nucleon) would have a certain vibrational period in isolated space, and the helium atom (4 nucleons) a larger period. (This period of He, though, is not necessarily four times that of H, since other factors, such as mass and shape of nucleons, determine the breathing amount.) 

The above insight is simply to highlight the fact that the cosmic field energy intercepted and reemitted by, say, a celestial body is a function of its mass; and that this energy-mass function is generally not a linear one
