Hi Alex,

I have some math questions for you:

>>>Say, what kind of geometry is space around us? It is the geometry dictated by symmetry - this time symmetry between gravitation and acceleration.>>In the presence of gravity it is exactly as in accelerated system of reference. Accelerated system of reference, in turn, related to non-accelerated as special relativity demands. Special relativity, in turn, originates from symmetry (invariance) of space-time interval under rotations in space-time (=motion with constant velocities). Special relativity plus the above symmetry between gravitation and acceleration is what we call general relativity: all laws of physics are the same in any free moving system (including free falling).
