Here we will describe the mechanism through which spacetime curvature (see Forms of Spacetime Curvature) produces the acceleration of gravity. A first working hypothesis is described in the simulation that follows. This needs to be formulated mathematically.

A fully mathematically supported theory for an explanation of the effect of gravitational fields on "spacetime" has been proposed by Sanford-Wood in his paper on Aethereal Gravitation Theory.
