1. ## What is existence?

This makes sense to you. The absence of light - literally no photons - is a physical object. The dirt in a hole is a physical object, and not having that dirt is also a physical object. Defining everything as a physical object makes it simple, I guess. Gravity is an interaction, not an object. Same with magnetism.

2. ## Time, Space & the Aether

! Moderator Note And once again we see zero support for an aether. No meaningful scientific discussion can happen about an idea without evidence in support. If "proving God" is now your goal, it's so far removed from your OP as to be a completely different topic (which you'll also need support for on this site). This thread is closed, please don't bring it up again.

3. ## A mass can be be lifted with force less than its weight

Please have a look at my attempt at explaining the researchers recording. My interpretation is that the scale reading is low while the body is moving down ("A" in picture). The individual in the measurement bends their knees fast and that results in a low force pressing the scale.

4. ## A mass can be be lifted with force less than its weight

@studiot Thanks for adding science to the thread. Letters a-h are from your image: a: standing with straight legs without movement. Reading of scale is constant since body is at rest. b: Bending knees. While doing this the centre of mass of body is initially accelerating down; any force from the scale acting on the body is less than the weight of the body. Scale is reading less than mass of body. b-c: tightening of leg muscles stops acceleration down to have the body stationary with bent legs. While the body decelerating the scale reads more than the mass m. c : starting the upwards push. There is no flat segment of the curve so the body is not at rest with bent legs for any extended amount of time. d: beginning to push/straighten legs to jump. e: (approximately) heels leaves the scale since legs are straight, pushing with calves muscles; force is lower than while using upper leg muscles. f: the body is airborne. h: landing There is a brief moment e-f where the scale would read less than the body mass while the body is standing on toes. The body is not at rest relative the scale during that period of time. I am not an expert, my interpretation may be completely incorrect.

5. ## Effects of a (liquid) water canopy

Are you another Science Fiction Author looking for help ? Quite a few have been helped here. Or are you referring to Genesis 1:2 ? Or what is your purpose ?

6. ## Applicability of Newton’s laws (split from A mass can be be lifted with force less than its weight)

In the context of this thread I believe that Newton mechanics and specifically F=mg will predict what happens when a mass m is put on a typical household scale. Flesh or wood or bones or quick silver or gravestone or whatever will not have an effect*, Newtonian physics is applicable in this case. OP seems to argue that Newtonian physics fails to predict the force if the mass m consists of flesh. I fail to find any evidence in this thread or in any mainstream physics supporting that opinion. (Disclaimer: Of course not counting engineering limitations, using the scale outside of limits, not keeping the mass stable or other out of context reasons.)

7. ## What is existence?

I wish it was as simple as you seem to think. First off 'does' is the present tense of a verb. Are you including other tenses Will my dinner exist tomorrow ? Did the dinosaurs exist ? Then the there is the subject, which is a noun. English nounds can be concrete,( like your apple) or abstract Does Harry Potter exist ? Does my reflection in a mirror 'exist' ? Does the centre of a torus (donut) exist ? So context please ?

9. ## Time, Space & the Aether

This, and almost everything else in that post, is most certainly not mainstream, whatever you might think.
