Can Gravity Exist Without Matter?
Gravity is understood to depend on and emanate from matter, both visible and dark. Simply stated where there is matter there is gravity and where there is no matter there is no gravity. At the moment matter is created so is gravity. When matter is destroyed so is gravity. Matter takes the leading edge. The two are inextricably bound. However, can gravity pre-exist matter for any given period of time?
Modified Newtonian Dynamics designates dark matter in the form of almost massless neutrinos to explain the existence of galaxy clusters and why fast-moving stars and gas in spiral galaxies do not fly out into space. This symmetry is further extended to dark energy, which is theorized to possibly be generated by the gravitational leakage from another universe in close proximity to own.
Is it not possible that gravity, which is dark to begin with, be constrained in a node or flux to act as dark matter? The major obstacle to test for the preexistence of gravity is the lack of instrumentation that can measure infinitesimal gravitational forces that may exist before infinitesimal quantities of matter exist for an infinitesimal short period of time.
