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.
