Gluons and Gravity are like Glue! The strong nuclear force creates the force of gravity. I was chewing gum and started thinking about the stickiness of it. You know kind of how it can stick to your fingers and act like crazy glue if it lands on your new shirt. Did you know that gluons act like glue? In layman's terms they are the glue that binds quarks together to form protons and neutrons. The scientific term is gluons are elementary particles that act as the exchange particle for the strong nuclear force between quarks. Yeah, just like glue.
The spring looking things are Gluons holding the protons and neutrons together
When the quarks interact with each other they exchange gluons that "glue" the quarks together (hence the name gluon). The strong nuclear force of gluons holds ordinary matter together.
Gluons glue quarks together in protons and neutrons and also hold the nucleus of atoms together. Most of the mass of a proton or neutron is the result of the strong force field energy. Only 1% of the mass comes from the quarks.
In other words Gluons are force carriers and are gauge bosons. So you can think of them as being made out of Energy.
This glue (color) force is observed at 2 ranges. At the small atomic range it holds quarks together to make protons and neutrons and at a slightly farther distance it binds the protons and neutrons into the nucleus of the atom. I’m not going to discuss the color force of gluons here because we are talking about gravity.
I wonder if the gluon force has another longer distance effect?
Unlike the other forces the strong force increases when the distance between the quarks is increased. It reaches a strength of 10,00 newtons and stays there. If they are pulled apart farther a new pair of quarks are created.
Therefore, it’s impossible to have a free gluon. They are only attached to quarks. However, a quark-gluon plasma has been observed, similar to the big bang plasma.
During the Big Bang high radiation energy created a quark-gluon plasma. The reaction went something like this. (my Big Bang theory explains it in more detail).
Energy from an unknown dimension enters the 6th dimension and goes into various stages then finally leaves the 6th dimension to end the Universe.
A high frequency energy similar to photons entered the 6th dimension to create our Universe. Dimensions are tools needed to create a universe. Instantly the energy is separated into matter and antimatter.
The 5th dimension receives the normal energy and the -5th dimension gets the antimatter. This energy was entangled and will meet again when the Universe ends.
Next the energies had an inflationary reaction speeding past the 4th dimensions. Cooling down after 10^-22 seconds the energies enter the 3rd dimensions.
Now the Higgs Field forms and slows down the reaction. The energy gains mass and forms high energy photons with mass. The universe is opaque with light.
Next the temperature falls down enough that a plasma of electrons, quarks and gluons form. After all the light has been used up the universe goes into a dark period.
Finally gravity is the hero that gathers enough mass to trigger a nuclear fusion reaction. A star is born and the universe has light. After 380,000 years the cosmic microwave background (CMB) shows the remnants of the quark-gluon plasma energy.
The timeline of our Universe
When the inflationary reaction met the Higgs Field gravity was added to the particles in the quark-gluon plasma. This was the beginning of gravity. Forget about the spacetime gravity that Einstein invented.
During the Dark Era the plasma formed into atoms of hydrogen and helium. Quarks stick together by the gluon force. Particles create atoms and gravity takes over to build stars.
It was the awesome power of gluons that created the strong force of gravity. When you have enough of the small gluons the force adds up quickly. Gluons will stick to each other because the force is additive and the range is infinite.
Atoms and molecules are always vibrating and inside stars the hot atoms are super excited by the intense temperature. Gluons are holding the protons and neutrons together.
When the quarks inside the nucleus vibrate they travel at light speed. That’s why the gluons produce a strong force to hold the nucleus together.
This extra force extends into a force field of gravity around particles. Hot atoms would weigh more than cold atoms according to quantum relativity. This is because of the extra force the gluons are manifesting.
As early as 300 million years after the big bang, black holes formed. What are Black Holes doing in the early universe? This is how entropy starts to increase chaos. The flow of universal energy uses this entropy by creating black holes.
The millions of black holes in the 3rd dimension are collecting random matter by the power of gravity. A black hole is created when a star undergoes a supernova reaction. The black holes are like doorways into a higher frequency dimension.
The power of gravity is amazing! It is the weakest of the quantum forces. But, it ends up being the strongest force in the large scale of General Relativity.
I am certain that the gluons inside black Holes have the power to transform matter into higher frequencies. This matter disappears and we call it Dark Matter. It has gone into the next higher dimension as per the diagram shown…
The 6th dimension will have another Big Bang that sends all the energy back to the 7th dimension and that will be the end of our Universe.
The birth of Gravity started when Gluons met the Higgs Field 10^-22 seconds after the Big Bang.
Gluons have a tiny mass but don’t exist without quarks.
Only 1% of the mass of Quarks comes from the Quarks. The rest comes from the force strength of Gluons.
The strong nuclear force of Gluons works in 3 different ranges.
Gravity comes from the Gluons that hold quarks together.
Gluons (Gravity) create dark matter inside Black Holes.
