In this short paper we reply to the Comment by M.J.T.F. Cabbolet on Villata’s theory of antigravity. The criticisms of methodological and ontological kind presented by that author come from a misinterpretation of some concepts, perhaps due to some lack of clarity or omission of details in Villata’s original article. In order to clarify these points, here we provide additional explanations regarding the assumptions and results of the theory. 
Collection of Arguments Vs. Niels Bohr's Destruction of Reality
Because of found mistakes, which we are lazy to correct, we need to check and recheck the foundations of Physics. As example of mistakes: "all" scientists used solution of dust collapse almostExpand
A solution to the cosmological problem of relativity theory
After nearly a century of scientific investigation, the standard cosmological theory continues to have many unexplained problems, which invariably amount to one troubling statement: we know of noExpand
Towards a quantum universe
In this short review we study the state of the art of the great problems in cosmology and their interrelationships. The reconciliation of these problems passes undoubtedly through the idea of aExpand
On the nature of dark energy: the lattice Universe
There is something unknown in the cosmos. Something big. Which causes the acceleration of the Universe expansion, that is perhaps the most surprising and unexpected discovery of the last decades, andExpand
“Dark energy” in the Local Void
AbstractThe unexpected discovery of the accelerated cosmic expansion in 1998 has filled the Universe with the embarrassing presence of an unidentified “dark energy”, or cosmological constant, devoidExpand
The matter‐antimatter interpretation of Kerr spacetime
Repulsive gravity is not very popular in physics. However, one comes across it in at least two main occurrences in general relativity: in the negative-$r$ region of Kerr spacetime, and as the resultExpand
The Gbar project, or how does antimatter fall?
The Einstein classical Weak Equivalence Principle states that the trajectory of a particle is independent of its composition and internal structure when it is only submitted to gravitational forces.Expand
Gravitational Signature of Matter-Antimatter Interaction
The gravitational signature of antimatter has received growing interest during the past few decades. Much of the theoretical work in ordinary tensor gravity rules out any difference in theExpand
Antimatter Gravity: Second Quantization and Lagrangian Formalism
The application of the CPT (charge-conjugation, parity, and time reversal) theorem to an apple falling on Earth leads to the description of an anti-apple falling on anti–Earth (not on Earth). On theExpand


Comment to a paper of M. Villata on antigravity
In a recent paper of M. Villata, it is claimed that “antigravity appears as a prediction of general relativity when CPT is applied.” However, the present paper argues that Villata puts the cartExpand
Response to "CPT symmetry and antimatter gravity in general relativity"
The observed accelerated cosmic expansion is problematic in that it seems to require an otherwise unobserved dark energy for its origin. A possible alternative explanation has been recently given,Expand
CPT symmetry and antimatter gravity in general relativity
The gravitational behavior of antimatter is still unknown. While we may be confident that antimatter is self-attractive, the interaction between matter and antimatter might be either attractive orExpand
