Gravitational engines exist - A short scientific paper
Science has long been puzzled by certain motions of vehicles on the roads.
I hypoythesise that it can be deduced from these motions that gravitational engines have secretly been used in many cars by all manufacturers for many years.
The basic principle is that all mass has a gravitational attraction or pull and that the larger the mass then the bigger the attraction.
Vehicles fitted with gravitational engines would rely on the attraction of other masses and gravitational forces to assist their motion.
Such a vehicle could be expected to:
1. Decelerate up hills and accelerate down hills. The deceleration effect would be increased by the gravitational attraction of following vehicles which, if they maintained their approach velocity, would park in the front vehicle's boot about 10% of the way up the hill. As the following vehicle slows to avoid contact, this further slows the vehicle in front. When the downslope is reached, the vehicle in front is able to accelerate faster than everybody else because the earth's gravity is now assisting them.
2. Speed up and keep pace with another car trying to overtake it.
3. Slipstream a car which has overtaken it until the car in front (C1) accelerates to a velocity sufficient to overcome the gravitational attraction and aerodynamic benefit and leave the following car (C2) behind. The velocity of C1 and C2 after overtaking is the velocity of C2 before the overtaking attempt + 40%. The escape velocity is the speed of C1 after overtaking + 30%. Thus getting past and away from C2 at an initial velocity of 80km/h requires an escape velocity of 145 km/h.
4. Travel through country towns at the same speed it approached them, even if the driver lifted their foot of the accelerator, because of the mass of buildings relative to open country. This results in vehicles (especially new white Camrys with a tissue box on the parcel shelf and two septagenarians in the front) doing 70 in the 100 zone outside the towns and 70 in the 60 zones through the towns.
6. Be pulled off the road when unstable at high speeds by the attraction of really big trees. This aspect of the theory is supported by the frequency with which vehicles pass lots of little trees to hit the really big one.
As these phenomena have long been observed, there is sufficient evidence to support the inference that the gravitational engines already exist.
