In a previous blog entry I give some background around Erik Verlinde’s proposal for an emergent, thermodynamic basis of gravity.

Gravity remains mysterious years after Einstein’s introduction of general relativity – because it is so weak relative to the other main forces, and because there is no quantum mechanical description.
