Einstein has shown in his general theory of relativity that the mysterious gravitational force acting between masses can be interpreted as a peculiar state of space, characterized in the neighborhood of masses by a deviation of its geometry from the Euclidean geometry of the flat space. Masses cause the flat Euclidean space to become curved, to bulge out. A test particle possessing a mass “senses” the varying curvature of this bulge as a real physical force which causes the particle to deviate from its “straight-line” path. We could even say that mass is nothing else than a local curvature of generally flat space, the bulge representing all the properties of the mass.
