原始语种摘要: It is shown that 100-year-old, conflicting ideas on the positive or negative energy of the gravity field collide with the principle of local conservation of energy. A scrutiny of the Schwarzschild metric, carried out with a different method than that applied by E. Schrödinger but completed with a similar result, reconfirms that the gravity field holds no energy at all, with that recognition being tacitly acknowledged by Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler in 1973. Given that it does not hold any energy, it cannot, by definition, be qualified as a force-field. Given that it is not a force-field, it is capable of being completely transformed away even in the rigid reference-frame of a distant observer outside of the field. Contrary to what (early) Einstein believed, this can (and must) be achieved...
