Scientific wealth building secrets! - #6 - Gravity
This is a series of articles about studying general scientific ideas to create a wealth building system that works according to the laws of the Universe. These concepts come from observing our environment. Scientists have discovered that the laws of nature follow certain patterns. Some physical laws seem to be present everywhere, from the tiny atoms to the enormous stars. Everything on the physical realm tends to be influenced by these laws, therefore they can be applied to your businesses too as you will see in just a few minutes. The whole series contain the following articles .

Gravitation is the tendency of bodies with mass to accelerate toward each other. General relativity states that mass curves space-time and this causes gravitation between bodies. A simple analogy would be to compare this idea with a billiard ball in a thin rubber sheet. If the ball is massive enough it will curve the rubber sheet.
Any less massive ball that you throw near the billiard ball on the rubber sheet will move toward the billiard ball. The same happens in space-time. That’s why bodies with mass tend to attract each other. Now, how can you apply this to business? You see something similar every day in the business world and you probably don’t notice it. In fact I think this concept is present in most social interactions between humans. Let me explain. Big businesses often take over small businesses and become bigger. Many start ups are sold to the competitors. Some big companies may feel that you are a potential danger for them. If they think they could lose ground if you grow big, they may contact you and make you an offer.
Small businesses tend to gravitate toward big businesses. The big companies acquire smaller ones and become bigger. In fact many small business owners dream about being purchased by “big brother.” The problem is that “big brother” is not always interested nor willing to pay the price they ask. Anyway, big companies can also force the “little guy” to go bankrupt even unintentionally. They have the funds to back up unexpected international economic problems. They can purchase millions of products from the distributors and get big discounts. They can lower the prices and realize smaller profits (5 cents per product) just to get rid off some competition. The “little guy” has two options then: adapt to the changes or go out of business. That’s why I say that small businesses gravitate toward big businesses.
There is a way you can get rid off these hassles though: by “creating a gravity” of your own. In the physical world you can do this by getting a large mass and compressing it into a very small space. In theoretical physics this is called a singularity. It is like getting all the mass of the Sun and compressing it into a ball the size of a baseball ball. By doing this you will curve space-time in such a way that is indescribable. Another way to do it is by accelerating a body with mass at very high speed. Remember that relativistic mass increases with speed. Also forces experienced by objects undergoing constant acceleration are indistinguishable from those in a gravitational field. For example, when you move upward in an elevator you feel heavier, because you feel the effect of the force of gravity plus the effect of the upward acceleration.
