## Main Question or Discussion Point

This is something I have pondered for some while... it is so obvious that there must be an answer and is probably a silly question, but I haven't found an answer yet... so....

Gravity is a consequence of the localised curvature of space. According to Relativity, space (space-time) is curved. So:

Does the general curvature of space cause a gravitational force (or an anti-gravitational force where curvature is "convex") over inter-galactic and greater distances?

(If it did, then where localised gravitational forces decrease with distance, the anti-gravitational force created by the curvature of space would

I realise this question is probably a consequence of a complete misunderstanding on my part, but it would be interesting to know why

*increase*with distance, would they not?)I realise this question is probably a consequence of a complete misunderstanding on my part, but it would be interesting to know why
