Suppose that a cloud of test particles travels along a congruence of timelike world lines in a spacetime with fixed metric.
Rotation in relativity and the propagation of light
Even more mind-boggling is the possibility to travel along a timelike world line from any spacetime point to any other one.
Rotation in relativity and the propagation of light
For example, if we start our journey at the origin r = 0 of the upper plane of constant coordinate time shown in fig. 10 and seek to travel back to the origin r = 0 of the lower plane, we first follow a timelike world line leading from the origin to a point beyond the critical G¨odel radius.
Rotation in relativity and the propagation of light
World lines and geodesics of test particles and of light. – Particles with a nonvanishing mass as well as observers travel on timelike curves through spacetime.

Critical phenomena in exponential random graphs
Intuitively this is clear: in order for there to be Lorentz violation particles must travel on world-lines that are species dependent (and not fully determined by the mass).
Modern tests of Lorentz invariance
So, if everything is affected by gravity, and if the motion of everything is the same regardless of its composition, it becomes possible to set up a set of "preferred" world lines, or curves in spacetime, along which any arbitrary object will travel (and are therefore geodesic lines).
A Simple Introduction to Particle Physics Part II
And because these world lines don’t depend at all on the objects traveling through spacetime, a natural conclusion is that the world lines don’t depend on the objects, but instead depend on the spacetime itself.

It is equivalent to a situation when the traveler falls into a black ho le. we do not know - whether he is crushed in the singularity or penetrated into «other world» through the white hole . (Though this difference is observed and essent ial for the traveler.
