Re: Raymond Tallis

Going out on a limb I wonder if gravity could exist without time. The reason I suggest this is the formula for gravity doesn’t depend on time. The gravity of the Earth is g = GME/r2 where G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the Earth and r is the radius of the Earth. Time is not a fac...
