    Default Could gravity be interpreted as “time dilation” In geodesics around masses?



    I’m not too sure what the theories are of what gravity is, what actually pulls an object to one another, but one this is proven that I believe we should take more into account, time dilation and gravitational time dilation, as a clock gets further away from a large gravitational source it’s ticking speeds up, (or time speeds up), could this simple thing be what we interpret as gravity? An object of large mass ie a planet traveling at a constant velocity through flat space, then encountering a more massive object ie a sun would experience maybe a “pull” to the sun because of the change in time above and below the geodesic the planet is traveling on. (What once was a straight line) what if the speed of the planet on the top half of the geodesic was traveling faster in time then the bottom half of the planet, which would be traveling slower in time (and take into account the gravitational fields the planet gives off could be interacting with the fields of the sun!). Now this would be interpreted as a pull, much like how airplanes use high pressure on the top of their wings and low pressure on the bottom of their wings to produce lift, just replace pressure with time and high and low with fast and slow, it curves inwards towards. Is this a correct way of looking at things?

    (Inverse on the planes and pressure my apologies, low pressure on top high pressure on bottom) The reason Im asking is because I havent seen any talk about it, which either means no one has thought about it, or it is disproven, please let me know! If no one has paid much attention to it maybe it could spark some new thought and inspiration, thats what we are supposed to do as theorists after all, keep an open mind, unless Im straight up wrong, in which case, prove my ass into the grave please.

    Could also maybe explain why planets rotate?

    A theory makes quantitative predictions which can be compared with observations. Newton's theory of gravity successfully predicted gravitational phenomena for many years until discrepancies appeared. Einstein's General Relativity resolved those and is currently successful.

    Your ideas are "not even wrong". There is no prediction happening, just word salad. Until you are predicting planetary orbits you have NO THEORY.

    Planetary rotation is a straightforward consequence of angular momentum conservation.

    Well, the question that you are asking itself can give you the answer. If you apply the tangent vector parallel transportation to your equation(if you're making one), then you can get the time frame of the object passing through the geodesic. Then you can fit it all into the space-time curvature system that Einstein suggested, and note the gravity, you can find out if space-time dilation works in geodesics. I'm gonna try it myself.
