Another Anti Anti-gravity Man

Townsend hated that his work got saddled with the term "anti-gravity, feeling that it was a misleading description for what happened in the field around his gravitor when it was powered up. Forum Friend Mikado calls that action "displacement." Dr. Erik Verlinde, author of On the Origin of Gravity and the Laws of Newton appears to be thinking along similar lines:

Gravity is explained as an entropic force caused by changes in the information associated with the positions of material bodies.

For readers who really aren't all that interested in scientific papers, today's New York Times carries a more readable introduction to the man who says, "For me, gravity doesn't exist."

Well, we hope he will be fascinated and engaged when the TTB stuff comes out, rather than defensive.
