Gravitational force

The elementary particles within objects cause a displacement of the z particles that fill the empty space within the object. This displacement results in a reduced z-density within objects.
The reduced z-density results in a reduction of time-rhythm (time dilation) as schematically demonstrated in the figure below.

Figure: time-rhythm within and around Earth caused by z-particles displacement.

The larger the object, the larger and deeper the reduction of the time-rhythm.
The time-rhytm at the center of a very large object (such as the largest known stars) could approach to zero. The dimension of the largest known celestial corresponds with with a time-rhythm at the center that approaches to zero. As time-rhythm cannot be negative, it is not conceivable that celestial bodies exist with a larger mass than the already known celstial bodies.

The displaced z particles are pushed outwards and cause an increased z-density around objects, that fades away as the distance from the object increases.

The image below demonstrates the time-rhythm within and around Earth as a function of the distance to Earth's center.

The image above demonstrates the direct effect on the time-rythm around a large mass such as the Earth. An indirect effect is caused by the elasticity of time. The reduced time-rythm with the mass causes a contraction of the space dimensions and a reduction of the local time rhythm.

After these adjustment, the time-rhythm around earth is like demonstrated by the image below.

The gravitational force is the force caused by the time-rhythm differences, pointing from 'fast' to 'slow'.
