Lets say a galaxy is moving away from us.
By the time its light reaches us it has increased the distances between us by 50% as some of the receding galaxies are traveling velocities which are a large portion of the speed of light.

Question:
Will "CVURVED SPACE" act on us as if the distant galaxy is equivalent to the visual distance or equivalent to the actual distance which is a great distance further due to receding velocities.

If you would say that the gravity strength is determined by the actual much greater distance then the universe is very open.
Present distance calculations are based on VISUAL information. If indeed the gravity strength is instantaneous then the distance which determines gravity strength is much greater and the force of gravity is very weak indeed.
