Is this a simple GR explanation for how gravity moves things? In SR, the dilation effects happen in a way such that the speed of light is maintained for all observers. In GR, mass is considered denser regions of spacetime. What I was thinking: It takes longer for light to precipitate through denser regions of spacetime(gravitational fields) so the only way the speed of light can be maintained for all observers is if they move closer to one another- and so we get gravitional force. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
