The Cosmic Membrane theory of gravitation (CM) implies Newton’s absolute space. We identify the homogeneous vector field used by us since 1994 with the Higgs-field as source of the heavy mass. Following Randall and Sundrum, the introduction of the wafting layer outside the membrane solves the issue of the mobility of particles in a super-strong membrane. Starting with Feynman’s radius of excess, we obtain a depth of space of WRS = 1.432×106 [m] of the gravitational funnel at the edge of sun. Using Chandrasekhar’s gravitational energy, we obtain the tension F0 of the membrane as F0=1.820×1019 [N/m2], and the vertical vector field acceleration AVFV, acting perpendicularly from the fourth spatial dimension on the membrane, with AVFV=1.148×105 [m/s2]. The horizontal vector field acceleration AVFH, i.e., inside the wafting layer, is AVFH=1.330×105 [m/s2], and acts as acceleration a=AVFH w’ with w’ the being slope of the membrane. The mass of the moved membrane in a moving gravitational funnel behaves as an inert mass, but yields a numerical value that is too small to explain the equivalence of heavy and inert mass. Assuming speed of light c for transversal gravitational waves, we obtain a first estimation of the mass distribution ρsurf of the membrane. The clay lump model of the relativistic increase of mass follows the assumption that the energy of the accelerating photons will act again half as mass and half as kinetic energy at the accelerated particle. Our result equals exactly Einstein’s SR result.
