    Question: To measure gravity, 2 massive equal masses are suspended apart, and their mutual attraction (deviation from the vertical, "parallel" suspension wires ) is measured.
    the strong gravitational fields around each of them pulls them toward each other, but in the gap between them , where there should be 2 "gravities" they are cancelled at the mutual center of mass.
    A 3rd small body at that neutral point, -- does it experience no, or double relativistic effects ?
    move to fringe forum if frivolous.

    You should well and truly know the answer by now - given the as usual needlessly loooong recent threads on that general subject elsewhere. Your particular scenario itself is not at all new:

    Just stick to page 1, and by the time you get to post #16, the answer is hopefully clear.

    suspended in a vacuum of space with no gravity ?

    my laymens guess is that the neutral object would expereince microgravitational force in waves eminating from both objects.
    i would guess this to be like an ocilating frequency.
    do the waves cancel each other out ? i dont know. im not that up on physics.
    my suspision is that the gravity still exists but it is being countered, thus remove the force from one side and the opposing force becomes prevailent.
    is it accurate to say there is no force existant because it has a force opposing it ? im not sure.
    does gravity create inertia ? does it load the neutral object with super-mass/gravity energy ?
    existing like at depth/pressure but equally balanced between the 2.
    it cant exist without the 2 so it is relative to its forces being concurrent.

    thats my laymens kinda guess

    What makes you imagine there are any kinds of waves emanating between two statically located masses?! The rest of your post is word salad.
