General Relativity explains that every single piece of mass alters the space-time fabric, creating a curve. But since we live on a three-dimensional universe shouldn't the curvature alter the fabric in every dimension, creating some kind of weird closed curve that might look as a bubble around the mass.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I really cannot visualize the curvature working in 2D.

I don't know if you understand what I mean, if not sorry I'm not very good at physics

(excuse my ignorance).
