Actually the only reason your "swirling cream"
experiment works is because you have walls on the coffee cup, and
the gravity from earth pulls the liquid downward, acting in
conjunction with the walls, creating a downward spiral. If you did
the same thing in space, the liquid would simply disperse in every
direction. Space is a "net". The larger the mass set on that net,
the more "pull" it has. Emptiness doesn't attract, mass does (See:
Black Hole) A well put theory, but wrong in this reality.
Thank you for your comment.
Four other examples of non-contained vortexes without walls were
given, a drain vortex, a river vortex, a hurricane and a tornado.
These were offered to demonstrate that a vortex does not need
containment to function and although the method of propagation is in
still not clear, spiral galaxies create a very compelling vortex
shapes in space.
Performing the vortex experiment in space would not work for the
reasons you stated. In the partial vacuum of space, the low pressure
center would not be a low pressure center any more and the mass
However, this is a matter of scale and pressure. Make the central
pressure lower than the partial vacuum of space and you are back in
business.. Please review "Thought model", about half way through the
I have no dispute with your claim that space is a "net" or a fabric.
However, it is the larger the gravity - not necessarily mass - on
that net, that creates the pull.
I did assert early in the video that it was an outrageous suggestion
that an absolute vacuum can induce gravity, but from the
observations you have raised, I see no rational reason to change
