  • The General Theory of Relativity tells us gravity is not a force, gravitational fields don't exist. Objects tend to move on straight paths through curved spacetime.

    Here's a question I've seen a lot in comments: OK, I'm accelerating up but then shouldn't someone on the other side of the globe fall off? No, here's why:

    This video is a masterpiece. The best explanation of gravity on the internet currently.

    The only, problem with this video, is that people who already don’t understand how the world works, just heard you say the earth is flat.

    The reason Einstein and others like him are geniuses is because they imagine things the rest of us need help to imagine.

    Defendant: "Your Honor--I have photos to prove that was a very steep hill; and according to Einstein I wasn't moving at all! It was your Officers standing next to their patrol cars with the radar guns that were coming towards ME at 200 MPH..."

    As long as I've known Derek he's consistently asked the difficult questions. This video challenged me, and taught me many things. I want to try the eclipse photo now. Impressed Eddington did it in 1919.

    As a Harvard Neuroscientist, here's another mind-bending gravity-related thought. When you rotate your head, you are NOT in control of the primary directionality of your eye movements under most circumstances.

    That's my first thought too when I see someone falling from a building....."Oh look, someone inertly observing my acceleration through spacetime."

    If there is no gravity, then I’m not overweight.

    "I know it sounds crazy." Is usually something someone says before telling you vampires exist.

    When I accidentally dropped a bowling ball on my foot it sure felt like a force.
