My Question has to do with the apparent creation of energy; Say if one were to some how find a large rock in deep space (where no other gravitational fields existed) and bring it into the proximity of a large mass, say a star, It would be safe to say that it would accelerate towards this star, gaining KE and losing GPE. The question lies here; where did this energy come from? As no work was done to raise the object above the star where did the GPE come from? Does GPE exist when an object is far from the reaches for the Grav field? On this line of reasoning can we say that all objects in the universe have GPE with respect to every other body?
