You could perhaps try making the "Quantum Conspiracy" argument ...
1. Take the Many World interpretation of quantum physics, i.e. that
the world (in some sense) "splits" each time a decision (read
measurement) is made.
2. Each (measurement of / observation of) movement apparently due to
gravity causes "splitting".
3. A world exists in which (just by chance) every observation of
particle motion _appears_ to be influenced by gravity although the
vast majority of other worlds aren't.
One consequence of this might be that, at any moment, there are
zillions of copies of ourselves finding themselves in the normal
(non-gravitational) universe and being torn apart.
 That each measurement causes a decomposition or decoherence of the
universal wavefunction into non-interacting and mostly non-
interfering branches, histories or worlds. (See "What is
decoherence?") - Many Worlds FAQ
