We suggest that a satellite with a stable atomic clock on board be sent through the Earth-Sun gravitational saddle point to experimentally determine whether Nature prefers static solutions of the field equations of General Relativity, such as the standard Schwarzschild solution, or whether Nature prefers equivalent non-static solutions. This is a test of the boundary conditions of General Relativity rather than of the field equations. The fractional difference in clock rates between the two… 
General Relativity and Spatial Flows: I. Absolute Relativistic Dynamics
Two complementary and equally important approaches to relativistic physics are explained. One is the standard approach, and the other is based on a study of the flows of an underlying physical
On the Motion of Free Material Test Particles in Arbitrary Spatial Flows
We show how the motion of free material test particles in arbitrary spatial flows is easily determined within the context of ordinary vector calculus. This may be useful for everyone, including
EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE AGAINST REPULSION IN HOLLOW SPHERICAL SHELLS
TLDR
A simple version of the hollow shell Cavendish experiment is performed, and it is concluded that the boundary condition of continuity of flow across material interfaces in spatial flow theories of gravity is not in agreement with physical reality.
