Introduction not important, deleted it. When I think of GRAVITY, G.R. comes to mind if this is not the question then please ignore! There is so much out there on the subject, I just hope it is solved in my life time.
Many theory's and nothing in stone as you know, we cannot even bring Gravity into the family of E.M., S.N.F. and W.N.F.. - Goal G.U.T or T.O.E. -
So what is the problem with gravity, I am using G.R.as a starting point and Q.M. coming together.
1. Q.M. explains why atoms are stable and do not instantly fall apart. Just keeping it simple like someone said, remember it deals with atoms, matter & radiation, etc., It quantizes the Newton and Classical Physics of the large objects in our world.
2. Now G.R. comes from cosmology, space and time, and gravity effects due to mass, etc., but it breaks down when you have to explain the behavior of particles and atoms but the same can be said with QM, is does not become compatible with the view of time and space, solar system, etc.
Problem, you cannot just bring them together and have the math work side by side, the two math's will not form a single theory that will explain the infinitesimal to the large universe.
You cannot just have a theory, it must be compatible with forces, atoms, mass, energy from micro to macro, so it has to be so much more. And they are working very hard on the subject ask any lab working on the problem.
Yes, there is a much better way to explain this problem, I did not say anything new, you can read it almost anywhere, so here is a start Quantum Gravity by Claus Kiefer - ISBN: 0198506872.
