What about the energy required for 'gravity'?  It is 'virtually infinite'.

Gravitons are superliminal.  This allows them to provide infinite energy.

virtually infinite.
You keep repeating this.  What does this even mean?

And again, where does all the energy for 'gravity' come from?

Virtually unlimited by definition is not unlimited.

So it seems he says "virtually unlimited/infinite," to mean finite.

It means very very very unimaginably big. Are you really this dense??

"And again, where does all the energy for 'gravity' come from?"

You can ask the same question for any kind of energy. The simple answer is that it's always been there. Every non-massless particle in the universe has always had gravity.

OK. So the energy we need to accelerate the earth all this time is not infinite. It is measurable. But the more the earth accelerates, the more energy is required.
If you could explain an energy source that increases with time, then maybe my problem will be solved.

That doesn't mean the energy source increases with time; it simply means that this source is being tapped more and more, but it still would have energy for now.

Yeah, I suppose that's true. But how much energy are we talking here? What I mean is, what exists that could have that kind of energy? A supernova maybe? are we in fact on top of a supernova and cannot see it?

Right, it's really big, but not infinite.  So why do you keep saying 'infinite'?

So it's been around for billions of years?  That's a really long time.  In fact, that amount of energy is so great, one would think we would have measured it by now...

A supernova is rather small in the grand scheme of things.

If you say so, I'm just speculating anyway
