What scaling? <shrug>

In this case, [G], the Einstein tensor, is written in its spherically symmetric polar coordinate system. So, what translation and what rotation? <shrug>
The field equations are discussed quite a bit. Not too many have brought up the subject on how the Christoffel symbols are derived since the Christoffel symbols are the basic building blocks to the field equations. In fact, among physicists, the Christoffel symbols are worshipped as a divine deity. Even fewer physicists nowadays understand how the Christoffel symbols are derived, and you cannot find a noncircular derivation in the textbooks any more. Fcvking sad, no? The following tells what the scientific communities are practicing. <shrug>
** FAITH IS LOGIC ** LYING IS TEACHING ** DECEIT IS VALIDATION ** NITWIT IS GENIUS ** OCCULT IS SCIENCE ** FICTION IS THEORY ** FUDGING IS DERIVATION ** PARADOX IS KOSHER ** WORSHIP IS STUDY ** BULLSHIT IS TRUTH ** ARROGANCE IS SAGE ** BELIEVING IS LEARNING ** IGNORANCE IS KNOWLEDGE ** MYSTICISM IS WISDOM ** SCRIPTURE IS AXIOM ** CONJECTURE IS REALITY ** HANDWAVING IS REASONING ** PLAGIARISM IS CREATIVITY ** PRIESTHOOD IS TENURE ** FRAUDULENCE IS FACT ** MATHEMAGICS IS MATHEMATICS ** INCONSISTENCY IS CONSISTENCY ** INTERPRETATION IS VERIFICATION
