What does modern science say about the relationship between gravity and electricity?

"Science says"  there are four fundamental forces of nature (physics)

the strong nuclear force

the weak nuclear force

electromagnetism

gravity

That is their relationship.  We do not know how or if they integrate with our current paradigm.

They've actually collapsed it down into the electroweak force and the gravitational force.

What shackleford said is what I've heard.

electroweak force

Damn, that happened like 20 odd years ago...

it down into the electroweak force and the gravitational force.

this appears to be the "standard model" (judging by what they call it.)  There are still three.

did Nikola Tesla say anything about the relationship of gravity and electricity?

Tesla came to have annual press conferences each year on his birthday near the end of his life. He said on several occasions that he disagreed with Einstein's theory in regards to gravitation. He stated that he had a "Dynamic Theory of Gravity" that he would release. He passed a few years later. Of course, his apartment and labs were raided by agencies of the US and/or USSR governments, and to this day, the overwhelming majority of the property confiscated hasn't been released (~60 years). Now, Tesla seemed to see everything in the universe as having a relationship to electromagnetism. The word dynamic is sometimes used in reference to electromagnetic force, but also just force in general. Who knows what his paper said/would have said. However, if it (along with the rest of his notes, equipment, theories, etc.) was all bunk, what would the government stand to gain from keeping it classified? On the other hand, if there was major insights in them, there would clearly be a gain involved in keeping them classified for government eyes only.

The only one worth following is the one who leads... not the one who pulls; for it is not the direction that condemns the puller, it is the rope that he holds.

interesting.

perhaps gravity is just electric attraction? 

 

i don't know much about this type of science....does this guy know what he's talking about or no?

What is gravity?

Gravity is due to radially oriented electrostatic dipoles inside the Earth’s protons, neutrons and electrons. [18] The force between any two aligned electrostatic dipoles varies inversely as the fourth power of the distance between them and the combined force of similarly aligned electrostatic dipoles over a given surface is squared. The result is that the dipole-dipole force, which varies inversely as the fourth power between co-linear dipoles, becomes the familiar inverse square force of gravity for extended bodies. The gravitational and inertial response of matter can be seen to be due to an identical cause. The puzzling extreme weakness of gravity (one thousand trillion trillion trillion trillion times less than the electrostatic force) is a measure of the minute distortion of subatomic particles in a gravitational field.
