So in effect that would mean that the acceleration that you feel (how many Gs) is the rate of change in spacetime distortion and not the overall distortion relative to an outside inertial frame.

Is that correct?

By the acceleration you mean the force ? That's related to the connection coefficients, which are the rates of change of the spacetime metric.

Define connection coefficient (in layman's terms please :scratch: )

And what is the difference between gravitational acceleration and gravitational force?
