What is gravity? We might think these are questions any schoolchild could answer, but perhaps the answers aren't so easy after all. In What Is Gravity?, Eugene E. Bunt questions some of the basic tenets of modern physics, proposing that light is in fact a two~dimensional phenomenon, possessing only length and height and having no time element. Gravity, in his theory, is a result of a distortion of these dimensions relative to each other. Though startling, Bunt's theories are grounded in results obtained through other scientists' experimental work, and are firmly rooted in scientific history. With notions of reality and physical law being uprooted almost daily through new discoveries in theoretical physics, it's worth keeping an open mind to new questions~even if they challenge our most widely held beliefs.
