The General Theory of Relativity tells us gravity is not a force, gravitational fields don't exist. Objects tend to move on straight paths through curved spacetime. Thanks to Caséta by Lutron for sponsoring this video. Find out more at: www.lutron.com/veritasium

Here's a question I've seen a lot in comments: OK, I'm accelerating up but then shouldn't someone on the other side of the globe fall off? No, here's why: Either watch again from 8:28 or read what I've written below... Spacetime is curved - it curves the opposite direction on the other side of the Earth. Neither us on this side of the Earth nor they on the other side are changing our spacial coordinates - we're not moving up, they're not moving down - Earth isn't flying into one of us. BUT we both ARE accelerating. In curved spacetime you have to accelerate just to remain stationary. The traditional definition of acceleration is something changing its velocity. In general relativity you have to embrace a new definition of acceleration: it means deviating from a geodesic - not going on a straight line path through spacetime. Near the Earth a geodesic is a parabola so unless you're moving in a parabolic arc (like on a zero-g plane) you are accelerating. This definition is the same as the old one so if you're accelerating in deep space then your velocity is changing. *BUT*... if you are near a large mass you are in curved spacetime, now acceleration your velocity is changing. You can stay stationary relative to Earth's surface and still be accelerating. This is because your acceleration should be measured not relative to the Earth's surface but relative to free-falling objects - they are inertial observers. Imagine this - I'm in deep space and I make horizontal rows and rows of stationary golf balls. Then I hop in my rocket and accelerate up through them. Just think about what that looks like. Now my rocket is back on Earth just sitting there. I freeze time for a sec and make horizontal rows and rows of golf balls up into the atmosphere. Now unfreeze time. What do you see? If you just look at the golf balls and the rocket ship it looks the same as the situation in space where the golf balls were stationary and the rocket was accelerating. Einstein's point was the golf balls have the better claim as the "stationary" thing since their experience is just like the golf balls in deep space - no forces experienced. The rocket on Earth is just like the rocket in space. It feels a force and hence an acceleration.

I know this doesn't have much to do with the video, but I would like to share these questions and this message with as many people as possible. 1. What do you think happens to someone after they die? 2. Do you think there is an afterlife? 3. If heaven exists, how do you get there? 4. Would you be good enough to get into heaven? Here are a few questions to see if you are a good person: 1. How many lies have you told in your whole life? 2. Have you ever stolen? 3. Have you ever used God's name in vain? 4. Jesus said that "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28). Have you ever looked with lust? 5. If you have broken any of these commandments, would you be innocent or guilty on Judgment Day? 6. Would you go to Heaven or Hell? The Bible says that "all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone" (Revelation 21:8) and "Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people - none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). So, if you are guilty of any of the ten commandments, then you are in trouble when Judgment Day comes! Do you know what God did for guilty sinners so that we wouldn't have to go to Hell? 2,000 years ago, God became a human being, Jesus of Nazareth, who suffered and died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day, defeating death. The punishment that we deserve for breaking God's law, Jesus took in our place. He paid the fine that we could never pay so that God can legally set us free by forgiving our sins. He is just, by punishing evil through Jesus’ death on the cross, while being rich in mercy towards us. What you have to do is repent, or confess and forsake your sins, and trust alone in Jesus Christ. Don't trust your own goodness, because, as Jesus said, “No one is good - except God alone” (Mark 10:18). Trust alone in the savior. The moment you do that, God will forgive every sin you have ever committed and grant you eternal life, and He will give you a new heart with new desires, so that you will love to do what is right. You will be born again. But you must repent and trust in Jesus. When are you going to do that? Here is a short Christian movie on this subject and depression: nlposts.info/past/mpXX3N28g4l_1Jc/video

The power of Scientism's pronouncements is greatly enhanced by the fact that its rituals and observances are powered by technology and science, and therefore its clergy can reliably produce "miracles" on demand: the "Holy Food" is actually medicine, so it really does cure the sick; the throne of the King of Anacreon is really a flying machine, so he can truly levitate over his subjects with a glowing aura. So deep is the indoctrination of the priesthood that they continue to believe in the miracles, even as they themselves work the technology to make them happen. Most significantly, Scientism can follow through on its threats when the people offend the Galactic Spirit, casting the navy adrift and shutting down the entire planet except for the temples, with a word from a priest. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Science

The things I didnt get it is that in giving explanations, for moving objects follows space-time curvature in which that makes sense. But when two masses are stationary relative to each other, they still pull each other ( gravitational force ??? ) and each objects start to accelerate & gain speed. I am sure we in a rocket would not feel this acceleration. How can we explain this in space time curvature.....? What makes these two stationary masses accelerate to each other? Can someone please explain it for me?

But one can say space time is curved due to massive objects is because of gravity space time is the field* gravity operates on so the curvature of it is the force of gravity because by definition gravity is a force just because you won’t experience it does not mean it is not happening so it is not an illusion

I told my friend every thought is manifested into the physical realm at the subatomic level. 🤓 metaphorically speaking every object that experiences gravity is therefore a perspect of its opposing object. An object that does not have a perspect could possible be a black hole. A black hole is a star that is basically halted in time and space. Literally ripping the “fabric” of what we call reality. That’s what I think of when I think metaphysics. I would need to do actual research. 🥺🦆

In this case the larger object suppose to have less wait on planet then smaller one. Or smaller objects always under curve of larger one? Still curve doesn't explain everything neither gravity. More sense makes that it is expanding with that acceleration, I mean all of us and everything around us including space, no one will never prove what I said or can contradict it. It's where our logic useless, it's like talking about infinity or how everything started to exist, we could only make tales like big bang or so... Some gurus know more than scientists, they do not need those answers they just using this all, which we call as a life to expand faster than ~9.8 m/s :) even during the physical life and that's how we see miracles happens around the world and science can't explain it. We have enough space in infinity to expand that fast, but our mind would blow up thinking to much how big we are to compare to the past and still how small, looking in the sky!

Everyone know that if you fall 1 foot and hit the ground=ouch, fall 100 feet and hit the ground=splat why? because all the while you are falling, you are accelerating faster and faster, someone in orbit around Earth is falling, it's just his angular speed makes him fall AROUND the Earth, instead of INTO the Earth...

If gravitation isn't a force then it cannot do work. It cannot accelerate masses. That also means that one COULD differentiate between an accelerated frame due to external acceleration from gravitational acceleration...which I believe is one of the axioms that drove the development of general relativity.

Sorry, but the claim that, "Gravity is NOT a Force", is demonstrably false when the explanation in this video is examined in further detail. The primary reason is that the initial premise requires an inertial frame of reference and ONLY an inertial frame of reference. However if we remove that requirement by adding power to the rocket, which in the real world is done all the time. The rocket can in theory, travel an entirely independent and perfectly straight path through normal space to any massive object. This would not be possible if space were actually curved, because the powered rocket would have to travel "outside the curve" of spacetime, which would be like hyperspace. Clearly however, this doesn't happen and doesn't need to happen. Therefore space itself cannot be curved. What General Relativity does, is provide a mathematical analogy that is useful in predicting the behavior of things in space. That is perfectly fine, but let's not confuse models with reality.

I still do not see how you have proven the opening proposition here though. The nature of the observer and curved space time is great and all, but you do still have acceleration, and you do still have a force that can be calculated by measuring the discrete mass and its proximity to another discrete mass. Energy is transferred, work is done. A gravitational field still exists, but here you have shown there is no force within it, only a different way of looking at curved space-time. You have the acceleration, only showing planet hits stick instead of stick hits planet. What you have not shown is why stick stops accelerating when it is no longer in contact with the planet, and why that change in acceleration is not the result of force. Even drag is measured as a force, so this is where you lost me, even after the curved space-time. Btw, the gravity well thing was awesome. It didn't help me with this idea, I got that from your other stuff. I just never understood why people were so fascinated with the stretched cloth to show gravity / relativity. Geodesics are described by changes in three dimensional changes in vector, but that is not the same as curved space. So I always saw the missed vector change, not the straight vector - curved space of relativity :) You smart, help me brain!!

Spacetime being curved (statically at least) actually does not explain why an object at rest relative with the surface of the Earth is still accelerating at all. An object sitting on the surface of the Earth would be at rest relative to the statically curved spacetime and so would not experience any acceleration at all. Which would be nice because then none of our bathroom scales would register any weight at all! :) How do you account for objects at rest relative to one another experiencing acceleration due to gravity, when both objects are at rest relative to the statically curved spacetime surrounding them. Something fundamental is missing, here. And before anyone answers we are at the “bottom” of a gravity well, that doesn’t work because that is imposing a force of gravity on top of the curvature of spacetime, when the whole point here is that gravity is nothing more than the curvature itself.

Earth spins at about 1000km an hour creating an upward force countering the downward force of gravity... if Earth stopped spinning we would be without an equator & we all become flattened from not having an upward force to counter gravity.. which could happen if all the glaciers melt with water dampening magnetic fields and we have a pole reversal, we would(and are going to w/global warming) slip into a mega ice age. Gravity is the electrical covalent bond between ALL matter, no matter how small & is why your space journey is far from any large bodies of mass. Earth orbits around the sun at about 170 000 km an hour and the space station orbits at about 17 000 km an hour...not exact estimates.. which looks like where you mention "space time" with what looks just like the moon orbit around Earth. Your losin me man, i feel like next your gonna tell me the Earth is flat.. lol.. JK

while I already understood from the video the logic of motion being relative and planets constantly moving through the space-time, something still bugs me and feels like it wasn't addressed, and I'm not exactly sure what. Maybe the question - if there was a planet (huge mass) that was stationary (not moving through space-time, just like the "free-falling objects"), does it mean it would not produce the (illusion of) gravitational pull / force?

If earth is moving up in one direction. Lets say north and people feel according to their frame of refrence and when people Jump they come down. But people in south would jump and not come down because earth will be moving in their reference when they exert a force and move away they should be a little behind. BC as we know earth is not flat?

Gravity, being a force pushing up on the feet? Ha! I'm with Newton on this one... the weight of my body is clearly pushing my feet down on the floor due to the mass of the Earth interacting with the mass of my body. Exactly how they interact really doesn't change how my physical body behaves. This falls under the category of lying with statistics, or in this case, general relativity... when I jump, not that I do anymore, some force is acting on my body to put it back on the ground. Time and Space exist independent of matter. All matter and energy have frequencies... and those frequencies interact with all other matter... sure. And the Universe Mother Spirit has the power of antigravity in her wheelhouse. And some people can levitate themselves. All fun facts, but practically speaking, I'm happy with the Weak Force concept for gravity, thank-you very much.

One thing I've never understood about the accelerating reference frame analogy is that if you were in an accelerating ship as shown in the video, objects near the top and bottom of the ship would accelerate at the same rate, because they aren't moving to the floor, the floor is moving to them, however, if you were sitting on the surface of the earth, the object near the bottom of the ship would accelerate faster because it's closer to the earth, and acceleration due to gravity increases the closer you are to the attracting mass as shown by the formulae near 11:45. But this would mean you could tell the difference between the ship sitting on earth and accelerating through space, which shouldn't be possible. So what am I missing? put simply, If you measured the deflection of two horizontal lasers, one at the top and one at the bottom, of the two ships, what would you see and why?

I have a simple question: Assume 2 cars accelerating toward each other. From each driver's perspective, they see the other car coming close at 10m/s^2. It could be one car stay still and another car accelerate at 10m/s^2, or both car at 5m/s^2. However, the force these 2 drivers feel on their back is different in these 2 scenarios. It seems that only using the earth as frame of reference can explain the difference. Why? What make the earth so special?

To distinguish your frame of reference, all you have to do is open your eyes/window and look at the rest of the universe. When falling, you know it's not the same as floating in a spaceship once you hit the ground, even though it looked like it for a moment. It's like closing your eyes and pretending the bullies aren't there. Works fine for a little bit. It's astonishing that the smartest people one earth believe this. Call me an idiot but I'm not buying it.

@bouytt guyt i don't fully understand it yet and this is the best i can do. its a long explanation. bear with me. if you are in deep space, far away from all massive objects like stars and planets and moons, then at your location the 3 dimensions of space are all straight. if you enter a region near a massive object, you will begin to move towards the massive object at a constant velocity because massive objects bend the 3 dimensions of space around them. you right now should be traveling towards the centre of the Earth because it is a massive object, so it bends space around it, and you're in that region of bent space. but your path to the centre of the Earth is blocked by what's beneath your feet. the reason why you don't just fall straight through whatever is beneath your feet towards the centre of the Earth is because the thing beneath your feet is continually pushing you away from itself. the fact that you are being continually pushed means that you have a constantly increasing velocity. so although you aren't moving, you are still accelerating. we're stuck to the surface of the Earth because it bends the space around it, and the bending of space makes us move towards the centre of the Earth at a constant velocity, but we can't actually move towards the centre of the Earth because the floor or the ground is in the way and we can't just go through it, so we're stuck on the surface of the Earth. whatever is in the way is continually pushing us away from itself, which means that we have a continually increasing velocity or that in other words, we are accelerating, even though we are stationary. actually, we are stationary BECAUSE we are accelerating away from the Earth, NOT "even though" we are accelerating. because the floor or ground is continually pushing us away from itself, causing us to accelerate away from the Earth, the bending of space by the Earth is unable to make us fall towards the centre of the Earth at a constant velocity. the acceleration stops us from falling and keeps us stationary. i feel that there's a few gaps in this explanation. bits of it might actually be totally inaccurate. like i said i don't understand it fully myself yet.

Love your videos! So I think 3 things kind of blow this up: 1. Convection 2. Spinning masses 3. Negative free-air gravity anomalies discovered on Mars If you can create your own reference frame (such as an IMU) doesn't this go against the very example of pass by a planet? If this weren't the case how would our solar satellites navigate other than optical references? If a spinning mass and it's apparent change in gravitational influence doesn't invalidate the whole space/time thing I don't know what does. Spinning or not it should have the exact net effect as the attracting body has no awareness of the spin.

I just had that "aha" moment. Gravity is, in a way, an effect of time. You can't stay in an inertial reference frame around mass, because that would require you to stay in the same spot in space and time relative to everything (or nothing). The bigger the mass of the body you stand on, the more you accelerate away from a straight line in space time, and the more time dilates from an other non-relative observation point. Need to find a better way to explain this, but gravity as an effect of time (and thus space-time) makes sense

well it will be a 50 years before it is learned in schools.

Some scientists point out that was actually shown that the sun did not bend distant starlight with the curve of its local spacetime as 'predicted'. It was a refraction effect that occurred only in the solar photosphere, and 'gravity' did not bend light.

@Pablo Escobar Can you cite a confirmed prediction made by EU? How about a peer reviewed paper? Any technology developed using EU?

@jpt Of course there is math, Birkeland currents are mathematically modelled. Of course there's predictive capability. So you are saying you need others to make up your mind?

No it doesn't. There is no math or predictive capability. No peer reviewed research. Electric universe is a scam.

I just realized on the second half of the video how cute he is. lol But kidding aside, I learned a lot from this video. And it's weird how when a question comes up in my mind, he addresses it right away lol
