I said:
Mass A has a gravitational field which is moving with mass A.
Mass As gravitational field has a mass, velocity and momentum.

-The velocity of A and the field is a less then light speed and can be much less.

-The paths of the particle and the field diverge causing a distance between them.

-Because the particle and the field are traveling slower then the speed of light the field will have an effect on the particle.

-The reason I asked you why you thought the speed of light might be violated is that there is a condition in which it may seem the speed of light is violated.

-If it is incorrectly assumed that B must send an energy wave to A, which would take time even at the speed of light,
Then the energy wave (force) would seem to transfer instantaneously.

-Particle B would seem to have an instantaneous response to A also.

-In other words A responds to Bs field, not to the particle B and is therefore instantaneous.

-Is this clear as mud?
