## Main Question or Discussion Point

When you put a mass on a trampoline it causes the trampoline to V. If you put another similar or same sized mass on the same trampoline at a great enough distance, will the curve on the trampoline/space-time look like a W or a U ?

If you can get the curves on a trampoline/space-time to look like W with the two masses spaced far enough apart. If you push mass_A towards mass_B will the curve peak between the masses (W) cause moving mass_A to repel/move mass_B?

If you add more mass gradually to mass_A side will it push mass_B away at first, until the curve peak between them comes down and then eventually they’ll start attracting or moving towards each other?
