## Gravity and the Energy of Spacetime Æther

The æther that implements spacetime contains energy. In deep space, the temperature of outer spacetime æther averages 2.7 degrees Kelvin. In the proximity of matter-energy, the energy of spacetime æther increases due to a wave interaction with matter-energy. What we call the ‘mass’ of a particle (or collection of particles) is related to the energy contained in the particle shell. As the electrinos and neutrinos in the particle shell move on paths determined by their wave equation, they interact with other nearby particle shells (mostly spacetime æther particles); even though no discrete energy is transferred, the ebb and flow of energy in each shell raises its average energy. As particle shells gain energy their electrinos and positrinos move faster and the radius of the shell decreases according the the Lorentz equation. This is how the curviness of spacetime is implemented and is also a factor in gravity.

Starting from the 2.7K temperature of spacetime æther in deep space, as we approach an object such as a planet, the temperature of spacetime æther will increase as we approach the center of the planet. If we were to graph the temperature and measure the degree of incline, the slope would indicate the strength of gravity at any location in or around the planet. Interestingly, close to the center of the planet, the curve would flatten. At the very center, the curve would be flat (zero slope) and there would be no net gravity, even though the temperature of the spacetime æther would be higher here than at the surface of the planet.

The graph shows the strength of gravity, i.e., the slope of spacetime temperature, as a function of radius from the Earth’s center. Several models are shown that depict various mass density profiles for earth. The simplest model is constant density, as if the composite of Earth was the same throughout- which it isn’t. The most sophisticated is the PREM model, which takes into account the changing composition of particles in the Earth from the mantle to the molten inner core of IRON-56.
