Yesterday I built a simulation on my computer, and it was pretty exciting to see how two inflating circles behave just like two massive objects.

However, I also discovered it's not possible to use the inflation + linear movement to explain orbits. I tried it on the simulator and all I could get was half an orbit, and then the small object collides with the big one.

It's clear to me now that, even though I seem to be close, I need something "esoteric", like a fourth dimension or some magical property for space and time. Does that sound familiar? It does to me, so I won't bother. It was fun though.
