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.
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?!
"Oh noes! They is creating black holez! The Earth's gonna get sucked into the black hole and disappearz! Nooo!"
Hmmn... dark matter boulders. Interesting. That's twisting my mind to some really cool visuals, now.
I'm still pondering what the "gravity shelters" that Steve mentioned (on the DVD, and in the booklet) would be? Coz any physical structure would be affected by gravity, so how would a gravity shelter work?
Half asleep one morning, there was this half-formed picture in my head, and there was some silly mash-up of magnets and pockets of an alternate reality or dimension that made up the shelters.
Wasn't making much sense while I was still all sleepy, so I had some coffee, thinking perhaps if I were awake, I could sort out the details. Upon the caffeine infusion, though, I only ended up more confused. LOL!
I have found that happens a lot, though. My own brain confuses the heck out of me, but I can grasp other people's ideas fairly well. (*I have no idea what that says about me, though!*)
*eh* but now I think I'm drifting too far off-topic.
I do have Gravity Storm playing right now. I can see the affected areas of the town getting crushed and warped under the crushing force, the air having gone a peculiar shade of deep purple/black, streaked with the ripping scarlet lightning that Steve described... It's the weirdest, funkiest feeling to have that kind of visual while listening to that music... kind of feels like I'm standing near the edge of the event...
*shivers* Intense. Seriously...
