- TL;DR Summary
- How does General Relativity explain two stationary objects in free space attract?

In most intuitive explanation of GR there is always a moving object... the moving object travels along the geodesic shortest distance therefore its path is bent toward a massive object.

But let's start with two masses that are stationary in free space. I don't understand how curved spacetime will start to make them move towards each other in the first space...
