Let's try a little gravity experiment in one of Einstein's "inertial frames". First we place three contiguous particles (spherical in shape) of equal mass and density. (Same size, weight, shape, and touching each other, for the novice reader.)... Place your test particles in a strait line and draw a dot in the center of each one. This represents each particle's center of gravity. ... Now the question: Since the only gravity allowed in Einstein's inertial frame is that of the three particles involved. Will compression of any one or all of these particles take place, and if so, how will it manifest itself in terms of reshaping the particles? ... Ladies & Gentlemen start your sketching! I await your findings.
