My bet is that gravity is a perspective experienced existing within a quantum condensate. That is, gravitational information is instantanous. There are no gravitational waves, and there is no transmitting particle. I think gravity is more likely the opposite of entropy.
I'm (slowly) espousing my crazy theory on it.
I'll update that soon.
It's humbling, that for all we do know, we still haven't figured out what gravity is all about. :)
But secondly, the LHC will be used for other things too. The Higgs question was a big one though.
This is a really fascinating development, but I'm sticking with "turtles all the way down." Actually, I'm looking forward to digging into your theory of gravity vs. entropy (finally, an epic confrontation!), to the extent that a scientifically challenged person such as myself can.
Also, it's sad the Higg's is running out of places to hide. If anybody sees him, tell him he can come by and stay at my place.
