"General relativity" involves curved trajectories and accelerated reference frames (if I recall right): how would you know general from special relativity?

I found "general relativity" was "prediction" in a sense; but since I seem to have made an error that makes "special relativity" like (in math) prediction" ? But that doesn't feel right...

So maybe "fuzzy special relativity"?

To know "general relativity" IS curved paths etc. would require YOUR path to compensate so net straight path?

Maybe my error was suitable (but how could I know that? The knowledge-space would be mixed again....?)

To describe curved paths, general relativity would need a curved math ?

Lorentz?

Minkowski?

Maybe it really involves "straight paths" as a self-referential organisation of the concept in its geometry?

Hey its BUNK: a bunk is a double-bed one on top of the other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So quantum mechanics is encoded into "general relativity + special relativity" because each of these rests in its geometry-bedding say; and can swap bunks thanks to quantum mechanics (deciding who gets which bunk according to a convenience store called "mathematical description of space and space-blankets and sheets and pillows (and even teddy bears)?"
