Special Relativity as a theory of gravity...

This question relates to the idea of special relativity as a theory of gravity. The ticket to gravitation is gravitational time dilation. Space can curve as much as it wants. As long as there is no gravitational time dilation, there is no gravity. If space is flat, gravity can still exist if gravitational time dilation is manifested. shrug [Rest of mythical viewpoints snipped]

It can curve concave for gravity,and convex for expansion .The shape of the universe is "Saddle Shaped" This is the heart of my space curved theory" TreBert

And what about astronauts sailing right off the edge of the universe into the void? You need to learn my "wood is good" theory!
