Gravitation is conceptually problematic to General Relativity and Quantum mechanics in that the fundamental mechanisms are unknown to both, and the theories have different requirements that are difficult to reconcile into a single model. Cordus gravitation offers a solution to the problem. It provides a mechanism whereby gravitation is not continuous but in discrete force (or displacement) increments similar to quanta (but not uniform increments). Also, the closing force between two masses is transient. In this idea, gravitation, and therefore also mass, is a discontinuous property: i.e. a particuloid emits gravity (has mass) at some moments but not others. Thus gravitation is an effect that a mass does to the whole universe, not to targeted other bodies, and in this regard Cordus is consistent with General relativity. Both QM and Cordus agree that gravitation is quantised. Cordus conceptually integrates the different effects of mass: Gravitation is a particuloid contributing hyff to the fabric; Newtonian mass is resistance of the reactive ends to unexpected displacement; Relativistic mass is decreasing efficacy of hyff engagement with the fabric as velocity of the reactive end increases; Momentum is a frequency mechanism that ensures the reactive end re-energises on-time and in-place; particuloids like nucleons have mass to the extent that they have frequency. Furthermore, Cordus offers an explanation of how time arises at a sub-atomic level by the cordus frequency, and how this aggregates to the sense of time that we perceive biologically. Thus Cordus offers a radically new way of thinking about the problem of gravitation, mass and time that is quite unlike conventional physics, yet includes concepts that might be recognisable to those other physics.
