    Spacetime is a pseudoriemannian manifold that can bend and stretch giving us what we observe as gravity in general relativity.

    It is Einstein's solution to letting go of his previous ideas.

    This is the amount of time that you must give your wife some space...after answering "yes" to her question "Does this dress make my butt look big?".

    I fail to see your point (if you actually have one).
    Short answer: I did once. It's been too many decades since I had to do it for real.

    Obviously you can't/ didn't:

    You asked:
    I replied:
    In other words it's something I used to do (and have done) but am now out of practice.
    Therefore your "conclusion" -
    Was entirely erroneous.

    Just as, many years ago, I could knock off the proof that angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees, but would have extreme difficulty in doing so today. But, having done it in the past I am aware that is still true.
    Got it?

    Was entirely erroneous.

    I got it back then

    my point is that you referred to a post you don't understand

    So you agree your conclusion was wrong?

    Obviously you didn't get it.

    Never mind, carry on being clueless.
