Or how do you explain say the Sun and the Earth? They are gravitationally linked, yet the Earth is in a stable orbit. Is the space there still contracting due to gravity?
LOL! From a REAL physics standpoint "your cup of tea" ISN"T resting on the table. Its not even touching the table. Their is an atomic SPACE BETWEEN them that is not allowing your cup of tea to "really" be resting on the table. The so-called "gravity" is NOT "pulling down" anything, the space between the table and the cup is constant. When you set the glass down on the ATOMIC SPACE that only occured because SPACE CONTRACTED allowing you to do so.
How do i explain the sun and the earth: SUN= space energy. EARTH= space energy. Distance between them= space energy.
