Explores the idea that very small currents exist everywhere in the Universe, and that currents cause a magnetic field, which in turn cause a force.
The Theory of Microcurrents is based on the following assumptions:
1) A medium with infinite electrical resistance does not exist in the Universe. If it does exist, it is extremely rare. For instance, even the resistance of air is not infinite.
2) A medium with zero electrical resistance does not exist in the Universe. If it does exist, it is extremely rare. For instance, even the resistance of superconductors is not zero.
3) There is often a slight voltage difference between two objects. True zero voltage exists, but is comparatively rarer.
With reference to the equation I=V/R, where V is not zero, then I is not zero also.
This means that there are very small currents, everywhere in the Universe.
By the Right Hand Grip rule, currents cause a magnetic field to be formed, which in turn causes a force. This force will be very small also.
In everyday life, such currents do not cause any physical phenomena due to their extreme weakness.
However, I hypothesise that these small currents, called microcurrents, have some consequences either in quantum physics, or in other weak forces like Gravity, due to the forces caused by them. Also, the vector sum of the forces may be significant, provided they do not all cancel out.

I assume that this was meant to be an observation, not an article.
Formulae such as I=V/R, which were discovered through the observation of macro-events, do not neccesarily reduce meaningfully to the micro-level. We cannot, for example, use Boyle’s law to usefully describe the properties of a gas cloud that consists of two or three molecules. Similarly, in the absence of any free electrons whose drift might be affected, it makes increasingly little sense to talk about currents.
This line of speculation, however, could be vastly improved by some suggestion of what consequences might result from said microcurrents.

This is just my humble opinion, but perhaps this a means to reconcile gravity and electricity.
It has been discovered that the equations for gravitational force and electrical force are very similar (inverse-square law), but no significance has been attached to the similarity.
By proposing that weak currents exist everywhere in the Universe, and using the fact that currents can cause a force, perhaps the weak current could be the reason behind the weak force of gravity.
