It does fit nicely in a box, with or without invoking "Relativity" or "Quantum Physics", which is why i am warning young impressionable minds to read the ingredients label, and not be fooled by the flashy packaging.

Perhaps you should go back and revisit the "Physics" indoctrination you received at that pricey university.
Real physics is what we are talking about here.

No, the Electrical Universe crowd seems to have no better grasp of gravity than your pop-science meander does.

Umm, how did the core get magnetic ? Is it full of magnetic unipoles ?
No, because unipolar magnets do not exist. Charge on the other hand, doesn't have that problem. Electrical 'ground' (earthing, if you're British) can be either-or.
But forget all that pesky E and M stuff and get down to the elephant on the planet, gravity.
It also is non-polar, just like fundamental charge,
but its force vector designation is in the opposite direction to charge. Surely you came across Faraday and Maxwell somewhere in your grand journey of erudition ? Are you beginning to see the hierarchy here, or is to still too aetheric to discern ?
Sorry, i'm not trying to be mean here, you're probably an interesting bloke to have a beer with and all that.
It's just that when i smell BS, i'm inclined to warn others to watch their step. A simple civil duty if you please

Maury Povich is your guiding light ?? Well when you get as many "likes" as Maury, then you will have finally made the Big time.
Meanwhile, why not just follow the great Bill Nye Science Guy : )
