Intended for a lay audience, this work presents a new theory of Gravitation that uses the mechanics of an Archimedean Screw (helix) to explain how gravity does, what it does, and extends this mechanism to explain other physical phenomena, such as an Electric Charge via a mechanical interpretation of a Chemical Bond. Therefore, the mechanics that govern the core of an atom in this work, also govern the mechanics of the core of a star or a planet. This mechanism can be also be extended to explain the behavior of magnets: like poles repel; unlike poles attract.
Therefore, all fundamental forces in this work are explained via the mechanism of a screw, where a Field Line is interpreted as a turning screw and the direction of the linear force is obtained by the right hand rule. The Archimedean Screw was invented in 700 BC by the Assyrians. It is one of the six classical simple machines.
