1. ## Magnetic Relativity?

Since it is impossible to actually contact an astrophysicist, I decided to post here. Please dont steal my idea and try to pass it off as your own =)

Let me first start by discrediting myself... funny how often you see people do that but anyways, my knowledge on physics and astrophysics are all independant research. I havent been to college yet (but hold extremely high hopes for going soon) but I made it through highschool alive (somehow). So lets delve into this possibility I have created.

(you can skip this paragraph if you dont really care to read)
What really sparked this idea, and all the individual ideas before it, was thinking about Einsteins visual model he used to show general relativity. This made me think of the fact that we have easy examples of this if we stretch a flexible material out and place a round weight on it. That only works however, because we have gravity already. Several moments after I quit even thinking about it an idea sparked in my mind, as they so often do. I generally write my ideas of possibilties down in a notebook but I feel a compulsion to share this one and get some feedback hopefully.

Imagine if you will, the dimension we live in is not a complete vacuum... the fabric of our dimension is composed primarily of nuetronic material. Above us, (for lack of any better guess as to which direction) is a positronic dimension... and below is an electronic. The nuetronic material that our ever so lovely universe is made up of is harmonious, it seeks to keep the peace or so to speak... between the positronic and electronic dimensions. In order to do this it would need to allow + and -'s attraction some leeway, so it must be flexible or else shatter.

Going further, not only are we located in a nuetronic field but we could be resting right on top or below it. Given that mass can make impressions into this nuetronic fabric, mass (possibley anti-matter) on the opposite side can do the same. On our side, this would result in elations (hmm dark energy).

This is where thought gets polluted with far too many ideas to post (no you havent even heard 1/12 of the actual thoughts of possibilities I put into this even from the above). Also, imagine if you will, that near the death of a star something happens, the star becomes incredibley positively charged. It is either ripped through the nuetronic material (possible there is a true-vaccum between nuetronic and charged?), or the nuetronic material stretches to its very limits. When this happens, the fabric bends to such a point that time comes to almost a complete stop. Thus making an event that should last mere miliseconds, last for nearly an infinity. Theres alot more on this that I wont go into at the moment.

Keep in mind, I havent studied astrophysics mathmatically... so I cannot represent any of this mathematically, nor do I know if it even could be.
and please dont berate me for my lack of knowledge or misuse of words. Its the general idea im trying to get across.

2. To be useful, a scientific idea must fit within the framework of what's already known (unless it shows it to be incorrect), and it must predict something new that can be tested. If your goal is to propose a new idea, you should work out the connections and propose a testable prediction.

3. Yes i agree with carnevali. Its kinda hard to let go of a theory thats been tested and proven(to an extent) and believe in an idea someone had without any kind of proof!!... it was an interesting concept though (which i think is why you posted , to get feedback on the concept not the theory because thats all it is right now is a new concept!!), so i think stick with it, learn the math to back you up, and give us a ring in 30-40 years!!

4. sadly it is very difficult if not impossible to make speculations about astrophysics without some testable theory and to generate a testable theory you have to understand something about how our current understanding of the universe arose, and you cannot do that without understanding the mathematics behind the theory and you cannot do that without many years of study.You have got to expect your ideas to be pulled to peices without some formal framework to back them up.Don't give up though because its through people questioning the status quo that we make progress in our understanding.

Yes, I know I just wanted to get some feedback on the idea, as I feel like a really big part of the concept is missing. Anyways, I plan on going to college to learn the material I need to know to prove my wacky ideas. This is just one of my ideas that lays a framework for much larger scale concepts (its my personal opinion that many "theories of everything" will emerge that are possible, favorites can be chosen but I don't believe we will have the technological equipment to prove any of them beyond a shadow of a doubt for a long time) . I try to be as thorough as possible when dreaming up my concepts, but when you don't know the specifics of the subject you are exploring, the concepts become polluted with possibilities... so its impossible for me to get it all down but I try and keep an accurate notebook on my thoughts for reference in the future. Thanks for your time spent reading, and the input I have received.

7. Keeping a notebook for the development of your ideas is itself an excellent idea!
Remember though that science only has two speeds: slow and .... stop. So don't feel bad if some times you'll feel you're only making slow progress.
