Air's function

Post by Virgo » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:19 pm

In a general sense, does the element of air ever perform the function of "pulling" per se? I know air usually has to do with movement and that is has a quality of "pushing" (or is it displacing?) due to it's function of manifesting as pressure.

I know there is the downward-clearing wind in the body, and at other times other winds move "downward" but does the wind ever perform the function of "pulling", ie. acting as a force or in conjunction with other forces to pull something to a certain destination. Pulling (attracting, bringing, causing something to tag along) it seems, would be different from pushing (repelling, moving something towards something else based on pressure exerted).

I ask this question because I am trying to understanding physics a little better (especially gravity as explained in Einsteins Theories) from the perspective of the elements.

Not to my knowledge, no.

I'd go into some discussion of the functions of wind and space on gravity but it is too windy out for such a discussion!
