So if space/time is a "plain"... from what i get of it, space and time is a flat surface, and the planets and what not ride along the rings of the depressions made in it. The more i'd guess "dense" a object is, the bigger the depression and the higher gravitational pull it has. Now how in the hell do asteroids fly in from "above" our planet and why are there stars in every direction possible if its supposed to be a flat plain. and couldn't we cheat by creating a super dense object under our space ship and sorta skip above the "space-time" making it depress for millions of years? (Click here for picture) or would be just fall in that deep a@# hole?
