If time slows down in flat space and the speed of light is invariant then space must be compressed equally in all directions.
In SR a force is applied to a clock, resulting in motion, resulting in time dilation.
In GR a force is applied to a clock, resulting in motion (free fall), resulting in time dilation.
In SR we can identify the source of energy applied to the clock. In GR, it's the g-field,
but we have no theory to explain how the energy is transferred from the dominant mass M to the field.
You do not need the Einstein field equations to describe spacetime.

If time slows down in flat space and the speed of light is invariant, by holding the speed of light relative to the longer seconds space will be temporally dilated.
In SR we can identify the source of energy applied to the clock. In GR, it's the g-field, but we have no theory to explain how the energy is transferred from the dominant mass M to the field.
In both cases [GR and SR], time dilation results from motion regardless of the energy source.
Why do you [timey] propose a theory that reverses cause and effect?(If I interpreted your idea correctly)

Quote from: phyti on 30/03/2017 17:18:57In GR a force is applied to a clock, resulting in motion (free fall), resulting in time dilation.GR does not necessarily involve motion. It works when the observers are held in place by a planetary crust for example. It fails if the observers are experiencing different forces from external sources (i.e. rocket engines), but it is possible to (approximately) compensate with SR in certain variations of that case (e.g. orbital free fall.)
No - I am not trying to link time dilation to observer mass.What I'm trying to do is link energy to the phenomenon of time, where the universe has 3 separate time dilations.1 caused by subtracting/adding pe from mass via motion/lack of motion = SR1 caused by adding/subtracting pe to mass via position in g-field = GR1 caused by adding/subtracting g-field energy for g-field of M where m=0 = 3rd time dilation...
but your 3rd case is the GR case because GR is formulated in the context of an infinitesimally small observer mass.
My model simply states mass at h from M as experiencing external energy additions at h from M due to pe=mgh where pe/m ensures that all m is affected equally, and it is these additions of pe that cause increase in the frequency of electron transitions for m at h from M.
Now which mass are you referring to as the observer mass please?If you are referring to the mass at h from m, observed from the lower potential to have a higher frequency of electron transitions, as being the observer mass, then the observer mass at h from M will not observe any change in frequency of itself or any other body of mass at that h from M. All frequencies of electron transitions of any particle value m, although actually physically increased by their position at h from M will all retain their interactive relationships amongst themselves proportionally with an equal addition of potential energy for all.And since we can just calculate an addition of pe at any h from M, we can remove ourselves from the necessity of being reliant on what an observer observes from any other potential. It's no longer important because we know the cause of the observation.
Wiki:A caesium standard or caesium atomic clock is a primary frequency standard in which electronic transitionsbetween the two hyperfine ground states of caesium-133 atoms are used to control the output frequency.
The concept of time makes no sense in the absence of observers.
If time slows down and nobody is there to measure it, there are no consequences
:WikiFrom classical electrodynamics, a rotating electrically charged body creates a magnetic dipole with magnetic poles of equal magnitude but opposite polarity. This analogy holds as an electron indeed behaves like a tiny bar magnet. One consequence is that an external magnetic field exerts a torque on the electron magnetic moment depending on its orientation with respect to the field.
