We start with the premise that an inertial frame is defined as one that isn’t accelerating in the usual detectable sense. General Relativity states that inertial frames are 'influenced and dragged by the distribution and flow of mass–energy in the universe', noting the relativistic equivalence of mass and energy [1]. This dragging of inertial frames is simply called frame dragging and is shown conceptually in Figure 1. Frame dragging also influences the flow of time around a spinning body.
