Einstein's Matter Energy Equivalence II

After reading The Equivalence Principle and understanding at a basic level, I was able to see the idea. The idea is that the observer falling towards the earth is the same as the earth moving towards the observer. Einstein is basically saying that a free falling observer within a fixed frame possesses a fundamental equivalence to a moving frame relative to a fixed observer. Moreover, he suggests that these equivalent scenarios can be exploited mathematically. In a free fall scenario, this suggests that the earth is moving relative to a fixed observer. The idea that the earth is moving towards the observer breaks fundamental laws of classical mechanics and rigid body physics associated with planetary motion. So, I don't think that we can use the equivalence principle as a mathematical exploit based on current models found in Newtonian Physics and Classical Mechanics.

Instead, I think that we have to change our physics ideas in order to accommodate the conclusions that come out of the equivalence principle because clearly there is a misunderstanding about the mechanics contributing to the earth’s gravitational field. Instead, we can say that both scenarios possess a moving frame of reference which brings about the perception of motion; and, we should start to investigate the cause and effect mechanics that equate the two moving frames of reference mathematically.

Kepler's laws of planetary motion explain the behavior of very large objects in the universe through classical mechanics.
