I have read this question:
I think it's the opposite - when there is no gravity, the difference in time observers measure only depends on their relative velocity. It's when gravity gets very strong that you can get things like an event horizon. In the case of a black hole, the time coordinate of the faraway observer "stops" at the event horizon.
The original question was about whether time can exist without gravity, and most of the answers say yes, time can exist even without gravity. Now I am asking the opposite, whether we can think of gravity in terms of a 3D space, without the temporal dimension. Does gravity even exist in such a "space"? Can gravity be expressed without involving the temporal dimension? Or is gravity inherently temporal?
- Can gravity exist without time?
