comment Proper time in Nordstrom gravity
Thanks, but I don't see how this addresses the question. I see how both interpretations give rise to the same trajectories; I don't see why the proper times elapsed should be the same under both interpretations. In what sense is the curved space-time interpretation more physical?

comment What spacetimes satisfy this identity?
I'm interested in modified gravity lagrangians with both $R^2$ and $R^{\mu\nu}R_{\mu\nu}$

Ideally 3+1 dimensions, but anything would be useful.

Ah I see the converse is obviously false. Changed the question to just one way.

Yes, and the converse: if the angular momentum is parallel to the angular velocity, is the net torque zero?
