Is it true that the apple didn't fall to Newton's head, but that Newton, the base of the tree, the ground and everything else rose up to meet the apple? I know it is true to some extent, depending on whose perspective, but I am looking to see if it would be true that space stretching or swelling (expanding) and gravity are basically one and the same thing. If space is expanding, stretching, then when we let go of something and let it "drop", is it really that we're observing space expanding upwards from the earth all around it's sphere, making what we dropped "appear" as though it were falling toward the earth?
