I like how this precludes the option that you are just plain wrong.

I predict they will understand very quickly that it's worthless rubbish.

See by yourself if you can...

Making up some stuff, misapplying other stuff and just packing it all with fudge, ain't a novel theory. Often about 2 or 3 active threads here, where someone is doing exactly that, at any given time.

Those who rather go back to General Relativity and spend the rest of their lives wondering about wormholes are welcome to. The Earth won’t stop rotating!

No one need "go back" to something still in use. While you are free to fudge up anything you want you shouldn't welcome it. The issue's not wormholes, the Earth stopping rotation, general relativity or people spending "the rest of their lives wondering". It is your apparent inability to just think critically about your own notions as well your own perceptions of other notions. It is incumbent on you primarily to be the most critical and thus least welcoming of your own notions and perceptions.

I hear a lot about how things should be done. In computer science it’s not about how you do things it’s about getting something that works, period.

I’ve done all the hard work which appears to be easy but nobody else has done it yet nonetheless. If you cannot digest the fudge factor and admit GR is the biggest hoax humankind ever experienced then my advice is to change your mind and fast if you want to survive in this jungle.

There is a very mundane reason why nobody has done the “work” that you have done. It has been explained to you numerous times.

Then actually "getting something that works" is "how you do things". The latter only reinforces the need to "hear a lot about how things should be done" ("getting something that works") in that context. How do you know it's "something that works" unless you test it and try diligently to find its flaws?

Again that's the wrong "hard work", you need to be the stanchest opponent of your own notions first. Otherwise you're just going easy on yourself. You need to do the due diligence. It is incumbent on no one to digest your fudge for you.

Deadlocked conversation here.

I did find a flaw in the gravitational redshift and I corrected everything else, remember?

There are things that remain unsolved like the quantification of the lateral acceleration but we’re entering quantum physics. And a 21 pages manuscript is good enough for a start.

You used a relation for gravitational potential outside of a body or collection of bodies for what you call a 'gravitational potential' inside the universe (your fudged factor), "remember". You can't even agree with your own assertions and applications, in just fudging.

The balderdash of your fudge factor has already been resolved, as a result you've simply entered the realm of quantified bull crap.
