Why do physicists say that space is warped in with the presence of mass? Wasn't the whole concept of spacial coordinates supposed to make measuring distance easier? I think it would be easier to say that matter expands outwards in the presence of space. Also, because of the second law of thermodynamics, and since matter IS energy, would it not be logical to say that matter must continue to expand outwards until it touches other matter? Is this what we call gravity? BTW this isn't my idea, but I think it's an awesome idea but I need someone to verify the thinking is correct.
