see chapter 4 http://relativity.livingreviews.org/Articles/lrr-2003-1/download/lrr-2003-1Color.pdf I am a little confused how you are struggling with this so much. It is so public. Clocks which are far from massive bodies (or at higher gravitational potentials) run faster, and clocks close to massive bodies (or at lower gravitational potentials) run slower. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_time_dilation Anyway, when the high observer climbs down very slowly, his clock will have run faster than ground based clocks. So, the high observer thinks the earth is in a different rotational position. What clown believes this crackpottery?
