Youtube Video Suggests Gravity is an Optical Illusion.

Okay,the basic gist of it is that all mass is expanding rapidly, in a gravity-free universe, and instead of moving through space toward each other, objects actually just occupy more and more of the space between themselves and others.



What do you think?
If a tree fell in a forest, and the people around to hear it were not scientists conducting a controlled audio experiment... did it make a sound?

As interesting as that was, i can't really see it being true :/
Because Einstein suggested things such as gravitational waves and so on.
And how would mass expand with no input of energy?

If i'm honest, i didn't really understand it fully haha
Someone explain to me? ;)

I read an article in Popular Science about shrinking the distance to Alpha Centauri via dark energy to make the trek only about 4 years.
