System and environment

  1. Jul 21, 2013 #1
    hi
    in classical physics, we can decompose world into system and environment.
    is it true in content of gravity?
    it seems in general relativity we have a global theory!

    The decomposition into system and environment is basically just a completely arbitrary labeling.
