spacetime?
wiki writes:

The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass will deform spacetime to form a black hole.

Deforming something only makes sense if there is an object to be deformed. Spacetime is not an object; it is a mathematical construct.

Re: spacetime?
We know there is an electromagnetic field; we don't know there is a spacetime. The electromagnetic field is a mathematical representation of the forces present on a charged particle at a point in space. The reality that creates those forces are electromagnetic waves which are very real. Spacetime is a mathematical construct; the reality behind it is matter waves. It is the waves that are being bent, not some imaginary spacetime.

Re: Outing flannel???
I didn't make anything out of whole cloth. I don't see what you are trying to say honesty.
