I'd love to see more of the way your mind is going. You are, so far, quite a fascinating read!
*LOL, love your name, btw.
My name?! Lol! Yes, my granny had a pair of pliers that was used for picking bits of sugar off a sugarloaf. The pliers are called sugar nips! The name always made me smile
I did have another idea for the cause of gravity storms - two actually - but one involved creating mini-black holes on the Earth's surface, like they predicted would be created at the LHC - but I don't like that idea. Plus, the black holes would only last a split second before they disappeared having no effect on gravity.
The second idea I thought of listening to The Moon and I. I thought of the Earth travelling through space, and then started imagining it passing through huge boulder fields. Now if you make these boulders huge clumps of dark matter, the Earth would pass through them, but because dark matter has mass, then gravity would have an effect, and the Earth would gain mass as it passes through, therby increasing gravity in localised hot spots. (Dark matter is invisible.) More gravity storms! Now, the boulders of dark matter would have to be huge, and the boulder fields probably would have to be light years accross - but it works.
It got me thinking too, about how in Vai's story the people on Earth thought the gravity storms were caused because of the way they were treating and polluting the planet. However, with most things, there is usually a rational explanation that supersedes the irrational/supernatural one - maybe it's string theory or dark matter boulders? Who knows?!
