Hi, I'm new posting to these forums, so I'm not sure if this is in the right place. Anyway, here it goes: I've done a lot of research (on my own and in college; academic articles, educational videos, etc.) about astrophysics, and I've always been fascinated by the concept of gravity. Gravity is what makes life flow; it is the causation of all macro-events (so we think), and is still one of the greatest mysteries to puzzle mankind. As we know, the Newtonian view of gravity doesn't really work. Right now, though, we think that Einstein's general relativity model does. However, after spending hours looking over it, it doesn't quite seem to fit to me(or at least it's not polished). I certainly agree that the general concept is sound (with rifts in space-time being the causation for gravity, force, perception of time etc.), and that there is something out there that mass alters, but I've always wondered about space-time's mechanical properties. Space-time is often assimilated to a fabric that can be folded and dimpled by a mass--but I think that this is a very narrow view. In order to make an indentation, would the mass not have to make an impact in space-time, thus already exhibiting the properties that space-time supposedly gives it? In essence, how is a mass--let's say a planet--supposed to warp this fabric in a way that implies a force, if it's force is inherent in the warp in space time? Even further, why is space-time represented as a single fabric, a two-dimensional entity? What tells an object to travel along this indented, two-dimensional path in a three-dimensional world? Does anyone with more knowledge on this subject have any input? I am aware that I have no foundation on which to assert my argument, but I've always found these questions/observations puzzling.
