This is a Lichtenberg figure, guys. Got nothin' to do with gravity, sorry. These are caused by building up a lot of electrical charge in an insulative medium like acrylic, then piercing the surface with a nail or other conductive object to give the charge an exit. The movement of the large amount of electricity through the acrylic (which is very difficult to move through) results in the trails you see etched into the center of the block.

Do you have any video on how to make that?

ik this is probably a stupid question but how would you charge the acrylic?

For one, rub it with wool. That's how balloons built up a charge.

For this kind of thing, you need significantly more charge than static electricity can give. Go out to your local particle accelerator and stick the thing in an electron beam for a bit. That'll work much better.

Well, he asked how to build up electricity, he never stated how much.

so, what you're saying is, if i take arcylic and charge it with a voltage, and slightly break it, this will happen? im gonna go ahead and do this...

the patterns look similar to when a person is struck by lightning.
