“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hypothesis: There Is Only One Graviton

What do I know, I just read Nature Physics and quantum theory textbooks, but I so don't have a physics degree (unlike my grandfather).

But here's an idea. And it does have the merit of extreme simplicity and not needing to invent shit we can't observe because they're too tiny or multidimensional.

We can't find gravitons or make them work, not because of anything mysterious about dimensions, but because there's only one graviton. The singularity like "point" that expanded and became our universe is just a graviton and it has a really really really low frequency called the spacetime continuum.

Dark energy that is sucking the universe somewhere, and all those galaxies appearing to accelerate and maybe disappear in one sector of the sky: that's the one antigraviton, which by definition is what the universe isn't (and it thus "outside" of it). Our graviton is just being attracted towards the antigraviton somehow, hence the acceleration.

When they touch, a universe destroying-creating energy will be released and there will be another graviton–antigraviton pair.

Black holes are like the fractal nature of radio waves observed in Bell Labs: there are little versions of the wave inside the wave, so  your cell phone aerial needs to be crinkly, like maybe a Sierpinski carpet. The universe makes little versions of itself because that's the shape and activity of a graviton.

While I hear you, I am not sure I entirely "buy" your position, Dr Morton. And let us contemplate something else, shall we? The big ice in Antarctica has been sliding seaward for more than a decade. So. Let's consider that. More than 30 million years of ice is getting ready rip it. Do you see the corellation? I do. Let us continue this debate.

The singularity producing "waves within the wave" - the little mirroring fractals from this one absolute graviton - makes me think of Meillassoux's primary qualities, which are the properties of hyperchaos itself, which also theoretically apply to all its emergent entities.
But so like instead of one absolute graviton from which space-time quanta ripple off, he has the one absolute - hyperchaos - which all laws and objects likewise ripple.
