This unusual specimen is not so much a classic particle as a

connector—a kind of string attaching two particles. As distance
increases the connective power becomes attenuated, but if it is
cut the power vanishes: forever.

Quantum Machinery and Mind/Machine Interface pave the way for an understanding of gravity—the weakest fundamental force in the universe, but one that acts at infinite distances. With Graviton Theory, physicists can detect and measure the long-predicted gravitons—particle strings that ‘carry’ gravitational force.
