When I read on the internet how I should have studied harder in school, I find it funny.  Ask any of my high school or university friends how hard I studied.

    Hi, I read about your intriguing theory. I was wondering, however, why you think neutrons are not effected by gravity.

    I just finished a General Relativity course. Since neutrons have mass, gravity does act upon them. Some Googling will reveal that experimental evidence has already verified this fact.

    Through various means of communication, whether or not free neutrons are pulled by gravity has been one of the most discussed points concerning this theory. I realized early on that for the theory to be correct, free subatomic particles cannot be effected by gravity in the same way that atoms are, and have published a fair amount in that point of view already. Lately I have been focusing mostly on improving my engineering skills and doing good work in that area, and have not thought much about free neutrons.
    Hold on to the math you have learned. Most of the details relating to wave functions internal to subatomic particles, and how the Coulomb force transmits through the gravitational field need to be worked out yet.

    Couldn’t your theory still work even if free particles are affected by gravity? It is really an explanation of how gravity is manifested.

    If there are atoms around, then there is gravity and all things in the vacinity could be attracted, including neutrons.

    A zero gravity, zero matter/energy environment would have to be set up to test whether neutrons create a gravitational field. If Einstein was correct, they should.

    Yes, whether subatomic particles are free, or parts of functioning atoms, they are indeed affected by gravity. Without gravity they would likely fly apart in the form of electromagnetic waves and the particle mass would cease to exist.

    If being attracted may be likened to being held together, then within the subatomic particle gravity is acting this way by providing conjugate wave functions for the wave functions that make up the particle.

    Placing a free subatomic particle in an otherwise zero matter/energy environment could create a gravitational field by causing the particle to explode into gamma rays.
