I've been searching around this forum and the internet, and I still have a hard time understanding how curved spacetime, as described by General Relativity, can cause us and objects to fall back on the surface of the Earth. I get the concept of Geodesics and how planets revolve in orbit around the sun (because of curved straight paths). But I don't really get how GR describes why we fall. Is it true spacetime push as back to Earth? Thanks in advance to those who could help me clear this up.
