So you're all set with contacts. Great. Getting back to basic concept. Take that case of thin static shell. Let it have a mass M, mean radius R, and shell thickness d << R. From shell theorem it's known Newtonian g acceleration drops essentially linearly from a maximum at the shell outer surface, r = R + 0.5d, to zero at the shell inner surface, r = R - 0.5d. Hence the tidal dg/dr is inversely proportional to shell thickness d. Whereas for a given mass M, g at the outer shell surface is only slightly dependent on d, and in fact completely independent if we slightly re-gauge to make outer surface at r = R rather than r = R + 0.5d. Write me out the equation according to Beery theory that yields time dilation as a function of g, distance (hence your 'gravity times distance'), AND dg/dr. Recalling your admission as per last line in #45 time dilation would be zero inside an offset spherical cavity with uniform Newtonian g field within. To make any sense of what you have previously claimed, time dilation must have an intensive dependence on dg/dr. I'm betting you cannot furnish such an expression that will be internally consistent. We already agree it will violate conservation of energy. But that is likely the least problematic issue to be faced.
