Easy suggestion.
9 redstone = 1 redstone block.
Why? Because people have too much redstone.
Anything else? Ya. It is effected by gravity.
Why? Because it is a cube of dust.

I like it, but can it do anything else?

interesting that I thought of this too, minus the psyics part, as redstone can also be in crystal form.

This was so short and simple it made me laugh! It's a great idea too, I think it is simple enough for Notch to implement quickly, lets get this noticed so it can be in the next update.

Now how do we get this noticed???

I thought about this the other day, except for the gravity part, cuz then you could build straight up like this
:GP: =lever  :Iron: =redstone
[]  :Green:  []
[]  :Iron:  :D
[]  :Coal:  :Flint:
[]  :Coal:  :////:
[]  :Coal:  :////:
:////:  :Iron:  :....:
or like this
[]  []  []  :Coal:
[]  []  :GP:  []
[]  :GP:  []  []
:GP:  []  []  []
:....:  :Iron:  :Iron:  :Iron:

Question:

Should it be able to hold a current?

It would be good if it could hold a current. After all, gravity-based machines FTW!

Ok, but why should it fall? And personally, i think it should be like this:
:P =redstone

[]  []  []
:VV:  :VV:  []
:VV:  :VV:  []

It would balance it out because when you mine a redstone block it comes out as four redstone dust.

Good idea, though.

I could live with this.  And it is, as stated earlier, easy enough for   :Frame:  to add it in.  All we need is a way to get this noticed.  Maybe someone could make a mod for it in the meantime.  I think the idea of gravity having an effect would be good for a machine or trap that uses gravity in a way that couldn't be used before.  All in all, great idea.  10/10   You sir may have a  :Frame: .     :Spider:

Good idea, though.

Requiring only 4 reduces the main function which is mass storage.
Why should it be effected by gravity?  :mossystone: is composed of very small rocks.  :Zombie: is composed of slightly larger rocks. Redstone is called dust for a reason.

Support.

If it could be used for vertical transmission, it make allot of redstone projects easier and more compact.

I think this is a interesting idea, I think there would be two options of how the block would behave though...

1. The block could act like a lighted up block making better red stone signs ect.

2. Or like as mentioned in other comments being able to hold a current and being affected by gravity to be able to make more complex red stone circuits

Maybe when it receives power it gets 14 light level or something.
Great for neon lights.

Instead of falling, it should just break into 9 Redstone Dusts, because, you know, its, well, dust. Other than that, support!

So if the block below it gets destroyed it, in turn, also gets destroyed?
