you said, "so the spead of light at which gravitational effects are transmitted ensures that we are reasonably close to the center of the gravitational effects that we can detect".
could you explain what you meant here. sorry bout this but i do not understand it.
yes i feel that we do have the right to hypothesize about what we can not measure dirctly. galileo basically hypothesized about the force of gravity in a vacume but he could not concieve of how to possibly make a vacume so which he could measure his predictions. it took ~100 yrs untill a vacume could actually be made to do so. if the scientific method would have been used in galileo's time he would have been hypothosizing.
