    We're 99.99999% empty space - or so I've heard. Fucking amazing! I love the Zen of it all.

      What if space were 'full' (like a fluid) and matter was a void that space flowed into.  After all, the force of gravity can be viewed as the 3-dimensional conservation of flow applied to a fluid flowing into a point, and mass would then simply be the size of the flow (i.e. size of the void)....

      ... anti-gravity would then be a 'void' space is flowing out of ....

      meh!
