My question is this; what is the actual maths that satisfactorally predicts then the outcome of the situation? I have heard and read the same answer about symetry being broken several times but never been able to find someone who can explain the underlying maths

Another (possibly) simpler example I found it the 1971 experiment done with two atomic clocks. One website author showed mathematics where the centre of the Earth was taken as an approximate intertial frame and the relative times found for someone on the surface and then at flying at altitude. The maths and the predictions were very close to the outcome. But my question(s) are these? What is proper time? Why can the centre of the Earth being considered in someway as a preferential frame of reference to consider as having a proper time? That sounds suspiciously like some kind of universal time. - Confusing!
