Not you, it's me thinking about uniform motion, accelerations, and geodesics. I started to think about tidal forces, and wondering what it would mean if one used some particle, defined to to not be 'breakable' into smaller parts, passing a event horizon.=To me that 'test particle' should be in a geodesic at all times? And that matter break up under tidal forces being a measure of its particles finding new geodesics, as they get acted on by gravity, and acts. Maybe one also could see it as a question if gravity could be seen as a 'force' here?
Why not answer the question Pete?
If a 'undividable test particle' meets tidal forces, will it continuously be in a geodesic?
As for how I think of tidal forces, it's gravity, what else would it be?
As for relating it to a SpaceTime curvature, I better admit that I think it is 'space' myself
You're free to do so Pete.
