Talking to Gravity
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
On The Flash a couple weeks ago, Barry Allen ended up "inside" the "speed force"... Okay, it's kind of a long story, especially if you don't watch the show.
At one point, Barry talked to this personification of the "speed force" and likens the idea to talking to light or gravity. And that got me thinking...
What if some of the fundamental forces and phenomena were like modern gods? Like, there was a Light or a Gravity that one could find? (I was trying to think of some others. Sound? Magnetism? The strong or weak atomic forces?) What would they be like? How would they interact with us? With each other?
