Given three or four coordinates one can find most things in space.
Given three or four coordinates one can find most things in space.
What if those coordinates are jittery, due to the ripples in spacetime, caused by gravity waves, how does one find an electron.

Coordinates always refer to a coordinate system.
A coordinate system has a zero point and a number of axes, which are
somehow normed and defined.

Taking it short - coordinates are tools, designed mainly
to locate things, and, just like other tools, con work
in some cases and can't work in some other cases.

A coordinate system has a zero point and a number of axes, which are
somehow normed and defined.
E.g you have a large room and define the lower south-east corner as zero point (of your coordinate system) and the three axes x, y, z as 'North', 'West' and 'hight'.
'The norm' means, that you have also defined the meaning of '1' (here
unit of length).
In SI-units you take the unit 'meter' and can then decribe a point in
that room by a set of three number called 'position vector'.
e.g. (1, 2, 3) denotes a point in that coordinate system (aka 'location').
Other systems of coordinates are also possible.
Commonly used are spherical coordinates, because our home planet (Earth)
has a roughly spherical surface and we usually live upon that.
But if now the zero-point wiggles for some reason (like e.g. an
Earthquake), the coordinates wiggle, too.
But that would not alter the points in space, if they stay in place.
That's unfortunate for an observer at the zero spot, but usually no big
deal.

If I move from one spot to another, I mimic the motion of an earthquake.
But this motion takes place on a carpet of spacetime, which I couldn't
mimic.
It's a different mambo altogether.

Well, more or less.
Coordinate systems are man-made constructs and only imaginary.
The points in space are actually real, but carry no tags (or similar)
which tell the coordinates.
Sinse the points don't know where they are, we can measure their
location only in repect to something else.
This 'something else' is what we usually use to define a coordinate system.

Cut this mystical bullshit. Whatever you say
you're using words and put them into phrases.
What do you think words are? Ever seen any
in your precious spacetime?

Hi Woz.
Whenever I see a post from you, I feel I'm with Einstein,
which is where I want to be.
